Beyoncé> got funky as she rang in her 35th birthday in true seventies style, celebrating another year as the ultimate disco diva at a Soul Train-themed bash. Family and famous friends, all clad in their best costumes, rallied around the pop star to toast her big day.

Beyoncé was joined by her rapper husband Jay Z and the couple's four-year-old daughter Blue Ivy>.

Videos of the couple have surfaced online, showing Beyoncé and Jay Z hitting the dancefloor. When it was time for the doting mum to give a speech, her daughter Blue Ivy, who rocked a seventies outfit too, sneakily picked some icing off the cake.

"Happy birthday mummy!" she crooned over the microphone.

"Thank you, everybody, for coming. You guys did such an incredible job committing, and I'm so happy to be here," said Beyoncé. "Thank you, baby," she added to Jay Z.

Alicia Keys and her husband Swizz Beatz attended the bash in New York, alongside Beyoncé's former Destiny's Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.

"I am so fortunate to have the love and support of my family, my friends, and my hive. We've grown up together and you guys continue to inspire and motivate me every day.

"I'm so grateful for every challenge, every smile, every tear, every discovery, every sacrifice, every triumph, every stretch mark, every kiss, every scar. I strive to make you proud. I love YOOOUUUU!!!"
