When most people have a 60th birthday party it usually involves a few friends, a quiet dinner and a few gifts, but not when you’re the mother of the biggest pop star on the planet, which is why Tina Knowles, Beyonce’s mother, had more of a birthday extravaganza rather than a simple birthday party.
The star studded event was held at Muriel’s Jackson Square in New Orleans, which goes for at least $100,000 a night, says TMZ, which of course is mere pennies for Tina’s famous daughter and son in law.
Before the celebration even got underway, a marching band escorted Tina and her other famous daughter Solange into the event, and reportedly, Beyonce stayed in the background for most of the evening, coming through a secret entrance to avoid paparazzi and to keep the spotlight on her mother instead of herself.
Guest at the event included R&B singer Monica, Jennifer Hudson, Kelly Rowland and Jay-Z. And what would a celebrity filled party be without at least one Kardashian or Jenner in attendance, and this time, it was Kris Jenner who showed up, which of course made the paparazzi salivate with glee.
And though Beyonce avoided the lens during the shindig, she decided to jump into a photo with Jenner, Tina and Hudson, which Jenner eventually posted on her Instagram account. “Happy birthday Tina!!! Beautiful night,” she wrote when posting the image. A second picture captures Jenner standing in between Hudson and Monica and quite frankly, Jenner looks great and pretty youthful, considering she’s standing next to two women almost half her age.
It’ll be two more years before Jenner herself turns 60, which is bound to be an event of gigantic proportions, because just think, if she’s doing this much whooping it up at Christmas parties, celebrity events, and other people’s birthdays, imagine what her 60th will be like. It’s safe to assume that it won’t be just a few friends, a quiet dinner and a few gifts. That’s for sure.
