Happy Birthday, Queen Latifah!

Although Latifah turned 39 on March 18, she celebrated on Saturday night with a blowout bash in Hollywood.

Among the guests were Lindsay Lohan and girlfriend Samantha Ronson, Tracy Morgan, Quincy Jones, Vivica A. Fox, E! reality star Kim Kardashian, James Taylor, Paris Hilton and her man-toy Doug Reinhardt, fashionista Patricia Field, Harvey Weinstein, Hairspray director Adam Shankman and Oscars producer Larry Mark.

But the highlight of the night?

Latifah performed some of her new rock-tinged hip-hop from her upcoming album, Persona, due out in July. Surprise musical guests included Dancing With the Stars contestant Lil' Kim, Missy Elliott, MC Lyte, Lady Rage and Yo-Yo.

"I just want everyone to know that I've been in the game since '89," Yo-Yo said. "Queen Latifah has never ever, ever, ever changed!"

Latifah's family—including her mom, stepdad, brother and aunt—cheered from the sidelines as a three-tier cake was rolled onto the stage by her dad.

Q-Tip deejayed the CoverGirl-sponsored soirée.
