Jennifer Lopez's birthday party

Jennifer Lopez proved she could have her birthday cake and eat it, too — hello, life-size lion cake — but what sort of party food does a 45-year-old, body-conscious pop star indulge in before she breaks out the dessert plates?

To balance the final course at her 45th birthday bash at Nammos restaurant the Hamptons, Lopez kept the dinner menu light, healthy and fresh, with a Mediterranean spread made by Nammos chef Emmanouil Aslanoglou.

Hungry guests, including Kelly Ripa and husband Mark Consuelos, Andy Cohen, French Montana and Khloé Kardashian, and Rachel Zoe, sat at long tables lined with roses and dug into Greek salad, hummus with crispy pita bread, tuna taktaki, seared Long Island yellowfin tuna with wasabi tzatziki and green olives, grilled octopus with roasted bell peppers, capers and fresh oregano, and more.

For the birthday girl, the chef also made a single serving of one of his favorite dishes: pan-seared sea scallops topped with white truffles and served with yoghurt gnocchi, heirloom tomatoes and chives.

The meal must have been the perfect party fuel — Lopez didn’t leave until 4am! “She danced all night long,” a source tells PEOPLE.

Two kinds of tuna. The self-absorbed diva decides to empty the ocean and kills its last fish for her birthday party. Ugh.

And this is news? Good news? You’ve been doing better than this, People.

Who cares? How many days ago was this event?

Seriously, the cake was ugly enough we don’t need a visual of the whole menu.

Kellie on

Crap like this is exactly why I cancelled my subscription. Well, this and the Kardashian overload. You’ve got to do better, People.

liz on

Is she beginning to be one of the Kardashian where every detail of her life is in the press? Desperate for publicity, maybe?

Tina on

Hup, Khloe Kardashian and her ghetto boyfriend were there? I’m out.

Hayley on

If people don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything. Why waste your time and who has time to waste on something they don’t like…. I love JLO. She is not a Kardashian, JLO actual works hard. Work Hard = Play Hard. Don’t be jello because you can’t have what she has.

Carmen Oliva on

A big Happy B-day to you, Jennifer Lopez. We, love you. You are the best.

Carolyn on

Love People magazine, especially when you cover my favorite celebrity such as Jennifer Lopez. She looks so young , as a matter of fact, she never ages. Always, looking beautiful and amazing.

Jack on

Sea food is my favorite. Yummy, yummy and yummy. Good for you, Jennifer. You work hard and play hard.

Dave on

We guess Jlo and her team doesn’t have any decent news to offer since her music career flop after her latest new album A.K.A only sold 40K? Now that real news?

Rick on

Hayley, your so correct, I’m so jealous because I never had a transsexual for a lover? It sounds like you live the same lifestyle?? Your sick like JLo

Danielle on

a simple note to Jennifer Lopez, always, Be who you are, and No what the world wants you to be. I think she is doing that. She is a smart, amazing person. Don’t worry about those obnoxious, egotistical, nasty and judgmental haters.

Celi on

Interesting how many people waste time reading and commenting about a celebrity they hate. They must live very boring lives…. Glad JLO had a nice time. She works hard and deserves to enjoy herself.

I was a fan until the last season of Idol. I did not dig her attitude. Jlo seems to be all about herself end of story if you ask me. She can use photo shop all she wants. I won’t be watching Idol if she is on the show next season.. Come on. Her latest song out is called something papi. Lol. She has no Whitney nor Mariah talent. Who ever chose her to be a judge on Idol was an idiot.
