All we have to offer are humble birthday wishes for one Miss Beyoncé Giselle Knowles, who turned 29 on Saturday. These wishes are paltry in comparison to some of the other gifts the singer was given. We’re sure Bey received loads of cool stuff but the top three gifts, in our opinion, are as follows:
3. Twitter wishes from Justin Bieber. You know you’re big time when the Biebs acknowledges you to his five million Twitter followers. He wrote “#happybdayBEYONCE – u know how i feel. haha. u r incredible. happy bday.” U know how i feel??? Better watch it, Bieber, or else Jay-Z is going to get upset!
2. A whip from Lady Gaga. And not just any whip, a diamond-encrusted one. Gaga reportedly gave Beyoncé the gift that keeps on flogging during Jay-Z’s show in Detroit last week. She also tossed in a matching bra and underwear set which, to Gaga, is actually formal wear. It’s nice to know that these two stayed friends after “Telephone.” A source said that, “The whip was made out of hundreds of diamonds and leather,” and that “when Beyoncé received it she squealed with excitement.”
1. A private island from Jay-Z. The old Hollywood saying goes, “You’re nobody until you own your own private island.” Actually, that’s not a saying at all, but it’s still true. And Jay-Z didn’t go halfway with his gift for his beloved. He reportedly shelled out $20 million for an island in the Florida Keys, according to MediaTakeOut.com. It sounds amazing and all, but it sure sets the bar high for her 30th.
Not a bad haul for the woman who, we thought, already had everything. Happy Birthday, B!
