Beyonce Knowles throws 40th birthday bash for Jay-Z

P.Diddy is in danger of losing his legendary party-throwing status where Beyoncé Knowles is concerned.

The 28-year-old diva spared no expense in helping husband Jay-Z celebrate his 40th birthday in style, flying 50 of the rappers closest friends from New York to the Casa de Campo resort in the Dominican Republic over the weekend.

The star-studded affair, which included Kanye West, Oprah Winfrey and Ne-Yo amongst the guests, saw the birthday boy and Alicia Keys sing an impromptu version of their hit song Empire State of Mind.

Themed around the Al Pacino gangster movie Scarface, the night was kicked off with a lavish dinner of caviar and champagne, followed by a midnight firework display with synchronised swimmers dancing alongside in the villa’s pool.

Of course, The Squealer was invited…But…err…we had to wash our hair…

Ne-Yo exits stage in tears

Ne-Yo has sparked fears for his health after exiting the stage early in a flood of tears halfway during a gig in Manchester.

The R&B star, struggled throughout a half hour performance looking on the verge of collapse according to concert-goers. The singer then left the stage, only to return and announce through tears that, although he had never had to abandon a performance before, he would not be able to carry-on.

In a blog post entitled “This Is My Life,” the 28-year-old explained the demands of shooting his World War II film, along with his non-stop touring schedule took a toll on his body.

“Basically, I have an issue with not knowing when to say enough is enough, so last night in Manchester, my body said it for me. From the first song I knew something was wrong. I [should have] stopped there.”

“I’ve never had to stop a show, never dreamed I’d ever have to. So when I had to walk out on that stage and tell 12,000 of the people responsible for making me who I am that I could not perform for them, it literally broke my heart. I cried harder than I have in a very long time with no shame whatsoever.”
