It was the party you did not want to miss this past Friday
The Obamas’ Farewell party was THE party to get into this week, as we reported earlier. But as more details of the event are leaking, here’s what else we learned:
The party went until 4am Saturday morning – The First Couple do. not. play. when they throw a party. They had guests leaving way early the next day. Actress Olivia Wilde instagrammed the she, and husband Jason Sudeikis, “were stumbling out of the White House at 4am.” HA!
A chicken and waffles breakfast – The hosts must have known their guest weren’t leaving before last call. They served chicken and waffles for breakfast. Though we wonder who was the last to leave!
Solange took the stage – “The Cranes in the Sky” singer performed that night. She shared a photo of the sound check on instagram, calling it “the sound check of life.”
I mean, who didn’t go to this party? – The guestlist was even more eclectic than we even imagined. But we now know that Taraji P. Henson, Jay Pharoah, Samuel L. Jackson, Magic and Cookie Johnson, Jill Scott and Chris Rock were also in attendance. As previously reported: Chance the Rapper, John Legend with wife Chrissy Teigen, Stevie Wonder, Charles Barkley, Samuel Jackson, Magic Johnson, Rev. Al Sharpton and Tyler Perry were all there
We are still not clear if Beyonce, Jay-Z or Oprah were in attendance, though.
President Obama was king of the dance floor – We hear the President was not shy to share his best dance moves. Unfortunately, we will never get to see him in action because phones were left at the door (All celeb snaps were taken outside the White House). Get it Obama!
Sounds like a great night!
