Marc Anthony follows show with 44th

Speaking of Latin heartthrobs (and when aren’t we?), Marc Anthony was in town Sept. 14 for his Gigant3s show with Antonio Solis and Chayanne at Mandalay Bay, and stayed on another night to celebrate his 44th birthday at Tao.

Anthony was with his girlfriend, Shannon De Lima, and Jada Pinkett Smith, who had the night off from sculpting Willow’s inevitable early 20s Dana Plato-style breakdown. Anthony and company started the night off in the restaurant before moving to the club, where Mario Lopez delivered birthday wishes.

Michael Buffer shouted out Anthony’s birthday, and a Frank Sinatra impersonator crooned “Luck Be a Lady.” As long as that lady isn’t Jennifer Lopez, anyway. The lucky part was Anthony trading J-Lo for someone hotter and (probably) less crazy.

Because Ashlee Simpson at a dayclub is no different than a 6-year-old at a state fair, apparently.
