Beyonce Hosts Dance Party for Sister's 22nd Birthday
(people.com ) - These ladies know how to celebrate! Beyonce Knowles threw a dance party for Solange's 22nd birthday Monday night that brought out pals Ludacris, Ne-Yo, Mario and Destiny Child's Michelle Williams. Guests danced to tracks like Prince's "Kiss" and Bob Marley's "Could You Be Loved" spun by Lindsay Lohan pal DJ Samantha Ronson, as the birthday girl grabbed a microphone and called people to the floor. Lohan sat close to the deejay booth early on, but left before most guests arrived at the Hollywood Hills mansion at 11 p.m. On Solange's request, Ronson kept the tunes in the family, playing nearly every hit in Beyonce and husband Jay-Z's catalogs including "Big Pimpin'" (as Solange played a tambourine and Beyonce showed off her best moves) and "Dirt Off Your Shoulder." When Beyonce's "Get Me Bodied" played, revelers circled around the Knowles sisters as they reenacted dance moves from the song's video. Champagne flowed as guests noshed on barbecue chicken, cornbread, greens and mac and cheese (served buffet-style). Rock band Chester French took the stage playing an instrumental version of "What About Dre," and finished their set with a rocked out version of "Happy Birthday." Cupcakes with large white candles were passed through the crowd as everyone sang to Solange, who blew out the candles and banged on her tambourine.
