This is 47! Some nuggets I've learned to embrace... As long as I got a plate (full or not) I'm gonna try to make sure everybody eats. If the seat you are offering me at your wack ass table means I cant sleep at night, that's a hard pass for me. I'll go to my grave creating the world's biggest most inclusive table centering the voices, lives and best interests of our most marginalized peoples. My time with my family is priceless. Admit when you are wrong. And dont offer terrible apologies that include "I'm sorry IF..." Center your joy, peace and grace. Always remember that not everyone is going to love you, like you or support you. That's not ANY of your business. You can STILL love them, support them and champion them & their work. You lose nothing celebrating folks, even the ones who would prefer you take a long walk off a short plank. Dont apologize for doing what's right for YOU. There is no pot of gold at the end of your life for doing what everyone else thinks you should. LIVE! Evolution is a beautiful thing. Just cuz you were a dumbass doesn't mean you have to STAY a dumbass. Learn, grow & evolve. Have fun with cool folks and dont leave until the lights come on!! Happy Birthday to meeeeeeeee 😁💪🏾✊🏿🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤
For the occasion, the actress rocked a clovers cheerleader outfit from her 2000 dance movie, “Bring It on.” Her cousin also rocked an identical costume, and both women looked stunning as they twinned up.
The forty-seven-year-old took to Instagram to share moments from her surprise bash while expressing her excitement to have experienced such a special day.
“Bay Area Stand Up!! I was SOOOO surprised!! Having my own cousin @Saweetie kick it all off made it extra special. And then @e40 and then @tooshort?!?!?! EVERYTHING!!”
THE SNOOP DOGG BASH
The costume bash was filled with several creative costumes, with many celebrity lookalikes. However, majority of the guests attended the occasion dressed as hip hop legend, Snoop Dogg.
Despite the massive show of fandom, the rapper was not impressed when he attempted to carry guests along during his performance of “Blow The Whistle,” but realized they didn’t know the words.
47 LOOKS GOOD ON GABRIELLE
Snoop Dogg might have gotten the most costumes for the big day, but the actress’s clovers costume made the rounds on social media.
Shortly after the mother of one shared her birthday photos, fans caused an online stir, posting before and after pictures of Gabrielle dressed as a clover in the movie 20 years ago, and the images from her most recent birthday.
The looks were unmistakable, and fans found it incredible that she appeared the same two decades later. The actress starred as Isis, a high school cheerleader in the 2000 hit movie.
“Bring It On” hit the North American theatres on August 25, 2000, gradually making its way into the classic cult fanbase.
