"We gonna party like it's your Bat Mitzvah!"
- Rapper 50 Cent, stating the obvious at the $10 million Bat Mitzvah of Elizabeth Brooks, the daughter of multimillionaire Long Island defense contractor David H. Brooks. Also on the bill: Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith, Tom Petty, The Eagles' Don Henley and Joe Walsh performing with Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks; DJ AM (Nicole Richie's fiance) and rap diva Ciara. Overheard by one of the guests at what The Daily News dubbed "Mitzvahpalooza":
"Hey, that guy looks like Kenny G."Sadly, it was Kenny G. who had the dubious honor of playing sax during pre-dinner cocktails.
