We got the Golden Ticket!
Saturday night, Katy Perry celebrated her 25th birthday with a Wonka-themed white party that was just as much a celebration of friendship as it was her life and the incredible success she's had thus far.
We've known her for three years now, and most of the faces in that room are friends that Katy's had for a very long time - plus Mom, Dad and Sister Hudson, and some special friends like our beloved T-Swizzle, yes Taylor Swift was in da house!!!
When we say that this birthday extravaganza was one of the best birthday parties ever, we are not exaggerating! And everybody in attendance on Saturday night would back up that assertion!
We were under the impression initially that - like last year - it was a costume party (albeit with a white theme) so we went ahead and had that Mother Perezia outfit made. We then found out it was just a white themed dress code, but screw it, we had that Theresa-inspired ensemble created for us and we rocked the shiz out of it! Plus, it kept up the spiritual theme we established last year when we went as Jesus to Katy's 24th birthday costume party (and she went as Freddie Mercury).
The space the party was held in was transformed into Wonka's factory with candy all over the place and a string section greeting you with their take on memorable tunes.
Dinner included lots of yumminess, especially some deelish yellow and green mashed potatoes - and there was so many sweets downstairs for dessert that we're surprised we didn't go into a food coma.
The MisShapes provided some fun songs and revelers proceeded to get incredibly messy as we all sullied our white outfits with some party paint, which was SO MUCH FUN! See exhibit C above with Perezzers, T-Swizzle and Julianne Hough.
We all had soooooo much fun that the lame ass fire marshals put a damper on he whole party and kinda shut it down after Katy's blowing out her birthday cake turned into a food fight and cake was splattered all over the dance floor. The fire marshals shut down the dance floor - claiming it was a hazard - and forced everybody to dance on the green astro turf in the other room.
Then, the lame ass fire marshals told the DJs they had to cut their set early and they shut the party down just after 1 AM.
Boo on you, Los Angeles fire marshals!
1) It's a private party! 2) You should be working WITH people on their special day - not against them! 3) That venue had insurance, in case anyone did slip and hurt themselves!
But, you know what???? Despite the dicky behavior on the part of city officials, Katy's birthday party was still epic. And no asshole fire marshal was able to rain on her parade!
She and everyone there had AN INSANELY AMAZING time.
We expect to see lots of photo booth pictures starting to pop up very soon!
Happy birthday, Katy!
We love you!!!!
