If you woke up feeling fresh, renewed, and youthful this Friday morning, I’m sorry to issue this reminder that we’re all pretty much elderly and hurtling toward rapid decay. 2009 was a much simpler time. We were introduced to the subculture of strange hair and tackiness when Jersey Shore premiered, Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift’s MTV VMA award acceptance speech, and we looked on in horror as Nadya Suleman emerged as Octomom when she gave birth to octuplets through shady fertility means. But as time moved forward, our guidette bumps deflated, Kanye became immeasurably more of an asshole, and Nadya recently posted on Instagram that her octuplets just turned 14 and look like they’re thriving, despite some people expecting the worst (see: allegations of welfare fraud and past CPS visits).
Perpetual Hollywood partying Lothario and Pussy Posse President Leonardo DiCaprio celebrated the 23rd anniversary of his 25th birthday on Friday night, and the stars came out en masse to help him celebrate being almost double the age of his preferred lady vintage. But while tons of celebs were in attendance, one notable absence was Leo’s rumored girlfriend of the minute, Gigi Hadid.
Barack Obama Celebrated His 60th Birthday At His Martha’s Vineyard Estate With A Bunch Of Celebrities
Barack Obama turned 60 on August 4th, and he threw a big celebrity-filled birthday party at his Martha’s Vineyard estate on Saturday night. It’s unclear how many guests there were; People says it was an “intimate” soirée with just 200 “family members and close friends,” but TMZ claims there “appeared to be several hundred party revelers.” And that was the downsized version! Last week Obama’s spokesperson announced that the party was being scaled back and some guests were uninvited last minute due to the recent rise of the Delta variant. And while the event was technically outdoors (in a massive tent) and masks were provided, it looks like most of the guests partied with mouths exposed. All the better to schmooze with, Mr. President!

Amelia Hamlin’s in love and she doesn’t care who knows it! But she does seem to care what people have to say about it because she turned the comments off of an Instagram post wishing her 38-year-old gentleman friend Scott Disick a happy birthday last month. According to E! News, in addition to gifting Scott with unreserved adoration, she also got him a new Harley Davidson motorcycle. And this month it’s Amelia’s turn to be on the receiving end of Scott’s birthday gifting prowess. For her 20th birthday earlier this week, Scott bought Amelia a photograph of a sexy lady in lingerie riding a saddle on a chair. Sounds super creepy I know but it’s a signed B/W Helmut Newton print worth $57,500, so it’s actually super classy!
Every now and then, a child comes along who really has their priorities straight, even at a very young age. Who should give a damn about sharing when we’re talking about fluffy and delicious birthday cake? Not three-year-old Leona Feigh!
Leona is the St. Paul, Minnesota toddler who is a living testament to solid parenting and the setting of a real foundation for a child for life on this planet. If only all of our parents could have prepared us for the world this way, we’d have much happier relationships, better jobs, and would live in our dream homes. Little Leona is showing us how to live by asking her parents for a Lion King-themed birthday cake featuring Mufasa’s death scene.
Who’s going to tell an almost century-old icon to be sensible and go to bed while it’s still light out after an early-bird dinner with a free cup of jiggly custard for dessert? NO ONE, that’s who. Today we celebrate the 99th birthday of fabulousness incarnate, the inimitable Betty White. The pic above is from 2018 B.C. (Before COVID-19), but beautifully captures the joy of 90+ candles on a cake before the world went to hell in a masked and socially distanced handbasket, so here we are. And where is the birthday girl?
