Oprah Had to Cancel Her Birthday Party Because She’s Too Popular

Oprah turns 60 years old today, but guess what? There will be no celebration. Not that you were invited. And even if you were, you were part of the problem. According to E News, Oprah had something in mind, but ”the guest list was getting out of control,” so she had to call it off.

Don’t be too sad though. Gayle King said there was still some sort of celebration happening, just not the typical blow out bash Big O likes to throw.

Having to cancel a birthday party because you’re too popular is just one way in which we are unlike Oprah.

We’ve had to cancel birthday parties because someone forgot to order the kegs and because midway through one party someone fell down the steps, but never because of an abundance of friends.
