Singer, songwriter and rapper Sean Kingston loves to celebrate his birthday in Las Vegas. When he turned The Big 2-1, he toasted the milestone with his mother, among others, at Tryst in the Wynn. Last year for his 22nd, it was at the short-lived RPM Nightclub at the Tropicana.
On Friday night, Kingston hit Chateau Nightclub in Paris Las Vegas for the annual festivities. Arriving after 1 a.m., Kingston headed to a VIP booth on the main stage, where he was joined by friends including Soulja Boy.
About 1:30 a.m., Jamaican sensation Kingston was presented with a three-tier birthday cake resembling the cover of Kingston’s latest single “Rum and Ray-Bans” and adorned with red, yellow and purple skull-like designs and embellished with green Ray-Bans. As confetti flew through the air, Kingston admired the cake and gave a thumbs-up approval.
About 2 a.m., Kingston appeared at the front of his table and began his birthday performance, which included “Take You There,” “Fire Burning” and “Letting Go.” Toward the end of his set, Kingston handed the mic to Soulja Boy, who performed “Turn My Swag On” as Kingston sang along. Afterward, Soulja Boy addressed the partygoers and said, “Everyone make some noise! Happy Birthday, Sean!”
After the performance, Kingston returned to his VIP area and spent the night sipping champagne, meeting fans and dancing. Thanks to David Becker of WireImage for his photo gallery.

Paris Las Vegas The Paris Las Vegas transports visitors to the City of Light. Paris Las Vegas captures all the details of Paris, right down to the cobblestone sidewalks and half-scale replica of the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe. Wrought iron street lamps line the 85,000 square foot casino with the legs of the Eiffel Tower sit in the middle of 1,700 slots and 90 table games.
Guests can dine at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant, but beware, it's by reservation only. Diners can watch the world pass by at Mon Ami Gabi, a fine French restaurant where the most popular tables are the ones outside facing The Strip. Dining isn't just limited to the French, Asian restaurant Ah Sin is host to many dishes from the Pacific Rim. If you've just hit the jackpot on the casino floor, try the $777 Kobe beef and Maine lobster at Le Burger Brasserie.
Famous pastry chef Gaston Lenôtre opened a branch of his renowned pastry shop on the cobblestone-lined Le Boulevard, a street filled with intimate shops and restaurants, all underneath a blue cloud-filled ceiling. Strolling along Le Boulevard don't be surprised to see an extremely lifelike bronze statue move, that's because it's a real person
The City of Light doesn't go dark after dark. Anthony Cools - The Uncensored Hypnotist checks inhibitions at the door and pushes the limits of the audiences mind and body. Sitting right above the restaurant is nightclub Risqué, Paris' ultra lounge that is as fun as it is fantastic.
