Music superstar and beauty mogul Rihanna celebrated her 30th birthday with family and friends at an intimate, top secret party at The Pool in New York City on February 20. RiRi is already calling 30 her "favorite era" yet, and we are totally here for it! She shared some pics on Instagram of the champagne-fueled celebration.
The night started off with everyone having to forfeit their phones at the door. There were no secret snaps taken at this soirée! The paps did happen to snap some pics of Mama Fenty, Monica Braithwaite, and Rihanna's niece, Majesty, as they made their entrance. And of course her BFF, Melissa Forde was on hand to celebrate her bestie. There were loads of celebrity guests, too, including Paris Hilton.
Rihanna rang in this new era with her day ones. We did happen to notice that her billionaire boyfriend, Hassan Jameel, was not featured in any of the shots. But sis didn't seem phased one bit, as she partied the night away with her girls.
To top it all off, her "fave" Toni Braxton gave an exclusive six-song performance.
But she did have some "beef" with Toni, claiming, "I’ll never forgive you for looking this good at my party, though." We agree, RiRi. Toni looked SO damn good.
We can't wait for our invite to the next one, girl!
