Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson celebrated the big 4-0 with a bash Sunday afternoon at Bagatelle Miami, where, conveniently, he also toasted his partnership with Effen Vodka. The party was attended by about 50 people who were treated to food and a presentation of a boozy parade of 12 bottles of Effen Vodka, champagne with sparklers and a Statue of Liberty birthday cake to the tune of Fiddy’s biggest hit, In Da Club. The crowd, we’re told, “went bananas.” The rapper willingly posed for pix with his fans and was overheard saying he was heading home to take a nap before his nighttime celebration at LIV. On Monday he was expected to make an appearance at the newly opened 9beach Fusion Kitchen & Lounge Bar to sign Effen bottles.

The new Davidsons were serenaded by Cabaret singers crooning At Last and Saving All My Love for You.

When asked what one does with 11 magnums of Dom, we were told, “drink, spray it . ..” Duh.
