P. Diddy celebrated his 40th birthday this past weekend at The Plaza Hotel. The Garden-of-Eden-themed bash was said to set him back $3 million. The ballroom was decked with trees and grass covered in black decorations and prima ballerinas served drinks to guests as they entered.
The party was set for 9 p.m., but around 10:15 only a few lucky people had made it through the door. As a result of not having a red carpet, VIP guests had to find clever ways of getting in the building. However, by 11 p.m., everyone was out of the rain and the party had officially begun.
The hip-hop star invited 500 people to celebrate with him and treated them to gallons of champagne and Ciroc vodka (Ciroc sponsored the event). Some of the attendees were Jay-Z, Bono, Nelly, Jimmy Fallon and Kim Kardashian. There was also a private performance from the American gospel singer Al Green.
