Demonstrating for the 400 millionth time that pop stars lead lives of beauty and wonder, Nicki Minaj showed up to her 26th-birthday bash last night at Tao in Las Vegas clothed in what appeared to be a bejeweled version of one of those foot-glove thingies they make you put on when you forget to wear socks to the shoe store.

Guests at the party included Cassie, Amber Rose and the recently freed-from-prison Lil Wayne, who was photographed popping bottles of ... delicious spring water. Party on, Wayne!
