Wondering why Beyonce and her mom popped up in New Orleans yesterday? We've learned it's all because a huge 60th birthday party for Mama Tina is about to go down at one of the French Quarter's ritzy restaurants.
Deets and pics inside...
When pics of Beyonce, her mom and cousin Angie chillin' around New Orleans yesterday surfaced on Twitter, folks were wondering what the fam had up their sleeves. Now we know:
Miss Tina is turning 60! And she's celebrating with an epic masquerade party tomorrow night thrown by her daughters--Solange Knowles and Beyonce Carter--in the place where Tina's family is from.
Word has it, the super swanky formal bash ay Muriel's restaurant (creole cuisine) is costing upwards of $100,000.
The Knowles ladies were spotted yesterday in the French Quarter posing with a second line band and hitting up Fleurty Girl shop for some New Orleans trinkets yesterday:
Cute. Beyonce's been a party planning busy Bee lately as she and Jay just rented out the entire Jungle Island in Miami for Blue Ivy's 2nd birthday party this week.
Happy birthday Mama Tina!
