She want that cake, cake, cake, cake, cake…
Rihanna may have started her birthday off on the set of a music video, but her famous friends and family made sure the pop princess’ special day wasn’t all work and no play. Last night, Roc Nation held a surprise birthday bash for Bad Gal Rih in Los Angeles, and the guest list was an A-list affair with everyone from Jay Z and Beyonce, to The Hilton Sisters, Vin Diesel, Queen Latifah, Russell Simmons, Naomi Campbell, and directors Lee Daniels and Ava Duvernay showing up to the intimate event.
Earlier in the day, Rihanna took to Instagram to share a heartfelt message to kick off her 27th:
27 years ago, my mother gave birth to her very first child at the tender age of 27! Life is never a piece of birthday cake, but I feel special that I was chosen by my Father in Heaven to make it here! And each year that goes by I am more grateful! Every day we wake up, means we get another chance at life….to live what we’ve learned and to discover even more, to be good to other people and to know that you are a part of their smile! I cherish these days, and I pray that God will spare my life to see many more! #Feb20
Mylah Morales, Rihanna’s makeup artist, also shared a photo of her exhausted client during the wee hours of the morning, with this sentimental birthday message:
this is how I have spent spent nearly every birthday with her since auntie monica gave her to us to raise happy b’day @badgalriri we work hard for the $$$. Pack of wolves. She is a little sick but that doesn’t stop her from getting it done! Hardest working artist! Lean on me aaawe poor baby!
That hard work is paying off as Rihanna’s new track “FourFiveSeconds” with Kanye and Paul McCartney is currently sitting at #4 on the Billboard charts!
Happy Birthday Rih!
