Barack Obama’s 60th birthday party sees celebrities come out to celebrate the former president

Celebrities flocked to Barack Obama’s little 60th birthday celebration.

The former president threw a lavish party at his Martha’s Vineyard mansion on Saturday night, and despite reports that he slashed the guest list significantly due to rising coronavirus cases and the threat of large gatherings from the Delta variant, several celebrities were still on the way to the Massachusetts estate to celebrate with the former president and his family. While A-list attendees like Chrissy Teigen and John Legend avoided the paparazzi at the event, others managed to snap their way in or out of the star-studded birthday affair.

Don Cheadle, for example, was pulled up to the villa with his wife Bridgid Coulter in his white Mercedes convertible. The star let his gray goatee shine while wearing a chic fedora over it.

Meanwhile, Gabrielle Union and her husband Dwayne Wade were brought to the event together in a large black SUV. Both looked stylish and ready for the celebration of the 44th President of the United States with him in a white suit jacket and her in a pink dress.

Questlove, whose band The Roots performed as house band on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon, seemed very focused on not hitting anyone when he rolled into the mansion to join the party.

Musician Erykah Badu was later shot with her head out of the window of a similar vehicle when she was seemingly interacting with the photographers camped outside the property in hopes of getting a picture. Badu apparently got into trouble after the party for posting a video on Instagram of the former president holding a microphone and dancing on stage at the party. It was deleted from reports later on Sunday morning that such social media posts constituted a violation of the party’s security rules.
