Diddy's 40th bday bash lives up to the hype

Diddy's 40th birthday bash was everything that it was hyped up to be and more.

And the Twitter community couldn't stop buzzing about what was billed as the "party of the century."

 The star-studded extravaganza at the Plaza Hotel in New  York included guests ranging from Jay-Z to Bono to Al Sharpton.

Even Martha Stewart dropped by to celebrate this milestone birthday.

Stewart shared her party experience on Twitter saying, "Just left sean diddy combs fortieth birthday party at the plaza that man knows how to thow a party! al shapton,bono and hundreds of friends."

Russell Simmons used his phone to snap a bunch of Twitpics of various guests throughout the night. He caught Stewart, Susan L. Taylor (formerly of Essence), Mike Bivins and Ricky Bell (you know, the guys from New Edition/BBD).

"What a night. Funny I took all those pics and there was plastic in phone up till puffs party," Simmons wrote.  

Singer Estelle also had a blast.  

"Diddy's party...pretttyyyy sexy! Had a freakin ball! Happy bday @iamdiddy. Best party in a while," she wrote on Twiter.  

Partygoers at the black tie affair, organized by Bronson van Wyck, were also treated to a performance by R&B legend Al Green. 

Diddy must have had a great time because he didn't Tweet at all, which is quite unusual for him.

He did Tweet this afternoon, apparently still reeling from a night of bottle-popping.

"I haven't had a hangover n 5 years! But I have 1 now!!!! What do I do???? Lol," Diddy wrote.

His son Quincy Brown also tweeted about the experience last night, "Wit my two bros Justin and Christian. We bouto walk down to @iamdiddy's 40th birthday party!"  

Partygoer James Cruz had some of the best pics of the night featuring Jay-Z, Young Jeezy, Diddy and Andre Harrell.

Trey Songz closed out the party with an impromptu performance of his popular single, "Say Aah," according to DJ Clue's Twitter.  

"Was At @iAmDiddy Party..@songzyuuup was Tryin 2 Perform "Say Ahh" and Q-Tip Didn't have The Record in his Computer!!" the popular deejay wrote.

Actresss and model, Shannon Elizabeth wasn't completely thrilled about the party.  "Nice party-too crowded though-but it was snowing inside-pretty cool," she wrote.
