*Music legend Diana Ross celebrated her 75 birthday in March with a star-studded party that boasted celebrity attendees from Beyoncé to the Kardashians.

Footage emerged of Bey singing “Happy Birthday” to the icon, and Ross had plans to release additional highlights from her lavish party. But she has confessed that such plans have been squashed, for now, as she has lost all the footage from the event. 

During a Q&A held at the end of her concert at the Borgata Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on Saturday night,  Ross revealed that she accidentally lost all of the photos and video that was taken at Diamond Jubilee, Page Six reports.

“I had a birthday party, but I didn’t just want to have a party for my close friends without having a party with my fans,” the singer explained to the audience. “So I did a show and we didn’t start until midnight, and I did a show especially for you guys, really. That’s what it was all about.”

She continued, “We invited a lot of my celebrity friends and so they would get up on the stage and sing with me. You should have seen Stevie Wonder! Was he amazing? He was amazing! And Puffy [Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs], and my son, my daughters, everybody performed with me. It was a lovely night.”

Unfortunately, “What happened is, I lost the drive. I can’t find the drive! You know how you film it on a hard drive? I didn’t find it! But it’s not lost, it’s gotta be found somewhere, and then you can see it. You’ll be able to see it. But it was a lovely night.”

The bash featured A-list guests such as Tom Ford and Leo DiCaprio and performances from Diddy, Robin Thicke, and Stevie Wonder. 

Ross also gave a concert of her own, “delivering five over-the-top outfit changes throughout her performance,” writes Page Six.
