Hollywood’s elite showed up and showed out for President Barack Obama’s 55th birthday party, held at the White House on Friday, August 6.
Considering this was Obama’s final birthday celebration in the presidential home, first lady Michelle Obama made sure her husband partied in style — hosting an epic birthday bash that included the likes of long time friends Beyoncé and Jay Z, as well as rapper Kendrick Lamar, Stevie Wonder, and R&B crooner John Legend.
While the affair was mostly a private and exclusive event, some celebs just couldn’t contain their excitement. “@thecookiej and I getting ready to go to President Obama’s birthday party!” Magic Johnson captioned the above snap ahead of heading out for the soiree.
“An honor to attend President @BarackObama 55th birthday celebration at @WhiteHouse tonight,” Al Roker shared via Twitter, along with a photo of himself and wife Deborah Roberts popping a posh pose in front of the White House.
Before we knew it, stars were flocking to the party left and right. George Lucas, Ellen DeGeneres, and Robin Roberts were just a few caught by fans on their way into the private party.
