 Barack Obama’s star-studded 60th birthday party a week ago in Martha’s Vineyard was the place to be, with nearly 200 guests enjoying a weekend of activities, including a boy’s night, a Sunday brunch, and golf. It was so much fun, Erykah Badu forgot the rules and now is apologizing to the 44th president.

The celebration at Obama’s sprawling estate was attended by a who’s who of entertainment including Beyoncé, John Legend and Chrissy TeigenOprah WinfreyGabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade, according to the Washingtonian.

Erykah posted photos and video of the big, private bash, but then then quickly deleted them, then tweeted an apology to Barack and his wife, Michelle.

“Mr. and Mrs. Obama, Please forgive me 4 being the ‘terrible guest’ at such a sacred event for your family. I was so inconsiderate. Thank you for all your love. What an example of “how NOT’ to be….. erica.”

One fan commented, “They made you take down the video and apologize publicly.”

The four-time Grammy winner replied, ‘Naw sis. It’s just the right thing to do.”
