Rap mogul Jay Z, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, Solange Knowles and more showed up for family member Tina Knowles‘ 60th birthday over the weekend in New Orleans.
According to reports, the festivities went down Saturday (January 11) night.
The Knowles took over NOLA to celebrate their mother Tina’s 60th birthday. Beyoncé and Solange hosted a lavish masquerade ball in New Orleans on Saturday night with their family and friends including Jay Z, Kelly Rowland, Jennifer Hudson, Kris Jenner, The-Dream, and Gayle King. They shut down Creole restaurant Muriel’s Jackson Square in the French Quarter for the enchanted evening, which reportedly cost over $100,000. The guest of honor, Mama Tina, arrived in a horse-drawn carriage alongside her man, actor Richard Lawson. (Rap-Up)
R&B singers Monica and Kelly Rowland also came through for the celebration.
Fans camped out to see Bey, who snuck in from a separate entrance, donning a body-hugging dress and sparkly mask, while her younger sis beamed in yellow as she pulled up with her beau Alan Ferguson. Jay looked sharp in a black tuxedo and mask and Kelly Rowland showed off her short new ‘do. Monica, who attended with her husband Shannon Brown, expressed her gratitude to Ms. Tina. “Thank you for encouraging me & in the worst of times reminding me. I’m Gods Child mistakes and all were all his children,” she said. (Rap-Up)
The party came days after Jay and Bey threw up some big bucks to celebrate their daughter’s second birthday.
Beyoncé and Jay Z brought their daughter to Joey’s Italian Café after renting out Jungle Island, the bird sanctuary inside the Miami Zoo, for her special day on Wednesday. The couple, along with a group of friends, spent the first half of the day seeing the wildlife habitat and botanical garden before deciding to grab a bite to eat at the local pizza joint. And it looks as though Bey and Jay may have just found their new favorite spot in Miami, especially considering that the two have been there twice in the last week! According to a source, the couple chowed down on two pizzas and two salads and was in great spirits. (E! Online)
Details on what Blue Ivy rocked for her special day have also surfaced.
Queen Bey didn’t miss a beat with her fashionable ensemble. The songstress wore a “Surfboard” sweatshirt (in honor of her latest song “Drunk in Love,” obviously) and had her hair pulled back into a knit cap. Little birthday girl Blue rocked a gold necklace with her name on it–which may or may not be the same necklace that her famous mama was spotted wearing shortly after her birth. Either way, that’s some serious bling for a toddler! (E! Online)
