We caught up with the adorable Christina Milian last night at Meatpacking’s Beaumarchais restaurant for the singer’s 30th birthday dinner celebration. Milian was joined by family and celebrity friends including BET’s 106 & Park co-host Rocsi Diaz and singer Maxwell.

Guests toasted to the birthday girl with signature Harmonie cocktails as she blew out the candles to her Harmonie-inspired birthday cake. We were lucky to steal a moment with the woman of the hour to discuss what she learned about love in her twenties, her upcoming album and her need for lashes. Check out the video below.
