Michelle Obama celebrated her 50th birthday with a celebrity-filled party having about 500 guests.

Ledisi opened the night and then handed the microphone to Beyonce, who performed with a full band for about 30 minutes, Us magazine reported.

John Legend personally sang “Happy Birthday” to the First Lady and Barack Obama acted as the evening emcee, giving a toast once the birthday cake was brought out.

Other celebrities in attendance included Paul McCartney and his wife Nancy Shevell, Samuel L. Jackson, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Mary J. Blige, Ashley Judd, Angela Bassett, Jennifer Hudson, Gayle King, Smokey Robinson, Gladys Knight, and Steve Harvey.

KEYWORDS: celebrity; cult
Whole lotta income inequality on display there. Obama didn't mention that while he partied with the 1%, I bet.

Did birthday 1st wookie talk to them about the wonders of OblahMaoCare during the party?
Or was that only reserved for Thanksgiving and Christmas get togethers to rile up average Americans?

I think Oprah was at the SAG awards.

She is still hoping to get SOME sort of award for her part in “The Butler”.

Also- I think she has lost her passion for Obama.

Gayle is on morning
TV on CBS 5 days a week. She probably has more influence on how certain stories are reported in that position.

Thanks - forgot about the SAG Awards.

She may have lost her passion for The Won, but not for Moochelle Ma Belle - she just spent a week or 2 at Oprah’s home in Hawaii (after Barack and the girls flew back home)

I care... pop culture is destroying America and this is nothing but the queen of pop culture affirming the greatness of evil.

Did the Mooch get a few nips and tucks over there pre-party? I notice she is wearing a Sophie Loren type reddish wig these days, but haven’t seen any recent pictures of her mug.

That’s quite possible. I haven’t seen any pictures of her in some time (though I don’t necessarily look for them) - didn’t know she was now donning a Sophia Loren reddish wig. I did see an article on FR about her eyebrows :-)

What in the name of all things good does Ashley Judd have to do with anything??? Grooming that loon or what?

So thankful I tuned out all the noise this weekend.
