Bono has been partying up a storm in LA lately. The U2 frontman turned 54 with a big bash in the mansion owned by the band’s new manager Guy Oseary, and all kinds of stars were in attendance including Pharrell Williams, Oscar winner Jared Leto and illusionist David Blaine.
The party was doubly-special for Bono as his eldest child, daughter Jordan, celebrated her birthday (25) on the same day as her dad, May 10. A$AP Rocky serenaded her at the party with a rendition of “Happy Birthday.”
Hitmaker Pharrell couldn’t pass up the chance to sing his mega-hit “Happy,” and he gushed about all of Bono’s good works, according to a report in Us Weekly.
“You've changed the world with everything you do. You give people hope, especially with your song 'Sunday, Bloody Sunday," to which Bono joked in response, "Well, if we just keep singing 'Happy,' we won't need songs like 'Sunday, Bloody Sunday!'"
Blaine performed one of his trademark stunts at the bash, holding his breath under water for 10 minutes and five seconds to mark the birthdays being on the 10th day of the fifth month.
Sean Penn and his galpal Charlize Theron arranged for quite an unusual gift in their absence – a performer who transformed his body with shaving cream into different characters. Well, it’s Hollywood so anything goes!
The day after his b’day bash, Bono joined reformed bachelor George Clooney to celebrate the world’s most famous engagement – Clooney’s commitment to human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin. The party was held at Cafe Habana, a restaurant in Malibu owned by supermodel Cindy Crawford’s husband Rande Gerber. U2 bandmate the Edge also raised a glass to Clooney and his London-based love.
