Hold your fire. If you thought Adrienne Bailon‘s 30th Birthday Bash would consist only of a four-day-old Publix sheet cake, Cheetah Girls party decorations purchased from the clearance section at Ross, and a game of pin the tail on Rob Kardashian think again. There was a red carpet, too.
The ‘I’m In Love With A Church Girl’ actress (boom!) was joined at Studio XXI in New York City this weekend by Ne-Yo, Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams, Shaggy, Skylar Diggins, Fabolous and longtime girlfriend Emily B, Victor Cruz, Estelle and more. Check out all of the party people inside.

Depending on who you talk to — and by that I mean people who are still on active LiveJournal — Rihanna ripped off Fefe’s style when she went through that stage when she viewed life as one long Aerosmith music video and she was Alicia Silverstone.
The Canadian singer and songwriter had the following to say when Honey Magazine quizzed on if she thought Rih Rih jacked her style back in 2009:
I mean, for sure I question that, but who wouldn’t. She is supposedly a fan of mine. I try to take it as a compliment. It gets a little much when she starts getting the same tattoos as me but overall I just want people to separate the image and listen to the music. It’s about the music. Its like Prince and Michael Jackson, totally different artists. Or its like Kanye West and Jay-Z. So what? They are both black men, they sound different. So they both wear jeans, they are different.
Former ‘Love & Hip Hop’ star Emily B was joined on the blue carpet by two of her favorite guys — rapper boyfriend Fabolous and son Johan — at a special screening of ‘The Smurfs 2′ held at the Lighthouse International Theater in New York City on Sunday (July 28).
“Only got 3 hrs sleep but made sure i took #PrinceJoso to the #Smurfs2 private premiere 2day,” Fabolous wrote in a photo caption on his Instagram account. “This a small sacrifice to see my boy smile.. This is what we must do as parents. Its our first priority. Its our toughest job.”
“Its our biggest goal. To raise the next generation of Kings & Queens. #HappyFamilyDay #GreatSunday #TrueKingsRaiseNewKings.”

When ass falls through the house everybody else sits down. The leading lady in Ne-Yo‘s life, fiancée Moneyetta Shaw, took a moment to pose with ‘Love & Hip Hop’ personality Emily B at an intimate dinner to celebrate the release of Go-Go’s ‘R.E.D.’ album at Valbella restaurant in New York City last night.

The rapper got the messy kids in the cafeteria tweeting in their outside voices last night when he sent out a cryptic message interpreted by many to be a subliminal shot at the soft spoken fashion stylist:
“If you can be here for me, somebody else will. Shout out to the ladies to choose to be in 1st place!” attached to a Tweegram reading “The late girl always loses the you don’t have to wait girl.”
Without skipping a beat Fab responded to the neck rolling in his replies in his follow-up message.
