– Well you only turn 21 one time and that’s a very special year. And it’s a 80s skating party. (mellow hiphop music) – I am here at Cascade Skating Rink which is in Atlanta, where I’m from, but here to celebrate
Beyonce’s birthday party. – Yeah, she having her
birthday party in my city, so I had to come out here
and see what’s going on. You know, so check it out make
sure it’s going down right. It ain’t right if I aint here. – We’ve had an opportunity
to actually be friends with Destiny’s Child. And Beyonce is kinda
sorta that humble girl that no matter how many records she sells, she’s still the kinda
person you can call up and say, you know, what’s up, what you doing today,
let’s go to McDonald’s. – I got to know her because, like I said, I lived in Houston, I’m from Houston, I knew them when they
were kids growing up. So I’m just glad to see young
people that had a work ethic, the desire to make a thing happen and go around the world and share it. – She’s a beautiful, beautiful
person to be around with, you know what I mean. Any time she around, I feel good. – I’m just very happy
that I have another year and I have a lot of people
that love me and that I love. So I’m happy to be able to celebrate. – I’m here to celebrate
my sister’s birthday and she’s 21 and we just gonna
go in here and have a ball. – I’m so excited for her, she
came here with so much energy and I know she can’t wait to get her butt on the dance floor. That’s all she been
talking about, all night. – Oh, I’m just really happy her. I’m so happy that all the people here, look at the parking lot, have showed up wearing their
white and gold, the 80s flavor. I’m so happy for her
she really deserves it. – [Beyonce] You gotta look at the skates. These were custom-made,
they have the 21 on there. – Virgo.
– The gold on this, the Virgo, the B. And my mom and Ty did ’em, so
that’s my favorite of the day. – I know a lot of people
have been saying, like, they’ve never been to
a skate party before. And Beyonce just had enough
courage to throw a skate party, ’cause I know some people
are a little scared to skate but that ain’t nothing to be afraid of. It’s a party, so just sit back, cut loose and get wild and crazy. – I’mma come out here
and rock, bounce, skate and roll like a, no,
I can’t curse on here, but I’mma roll my butt of in here. – [Interviewer] So you gon’
do a little skating yourself? – No, I will not be skating. There is no need for me to pretend. I can’t skate, swim, anything with an S, I don’t do, except sing (chuckles). – Don’t wanna be too
nervous, don’t wanna bust my, on them things, so I’ll probably
just be walking tonight. (laughing) – I’m okay, I’m not a great
skater but I just love skating and I wanted to do something fun. I didn’t wanna have a
traditional, regular party at a, you know, club or wherever else. I wanted to have a fun party. – We’re gonna go out there and skate. – [Interviewer] You’re gonna go for it? – I can’t skate, but I’m gonna try. (mellow hiphop music) – Want some?
– No, it’s okay. – [Woman] You can gimme some. (mellow hiphop music) – I need a cup.
– I’m celebrating. (whooping) – Happy birthday girl, Happy 21st birthday from your younger sister
