A day off from work, the use of mild explosives for recreational purposes, maybe a little swimming, maybe a little day drinking — the Fourth of July is an unquestionably fantastic holiday. But no matter how good you think your Independence Day was this year, we can assure you of one thing: Ellen Pompeo’s was way better. Prepare your jealousy accordingly.

According to E! News, the Grey’s Anatomy star celebrated America’s birthday in high style at a party at Nobu in Malibu, California, and she was joined by some huge names in Hollywood. We’re talking the likes of Paris Hilton, Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford, James Marsden, Elle Fanning, and Mel B.

Yep, a Spice Girl was there. Seething with envy yet?



And as if the star-studded guest list wasn’t impressive enough, the party’s entertainment was also top notch. Tyga and Jamie Foxx both performed at the get together, and so did Chris Brown (even if we’re not too crazy about him these days).

Fingers crossed that while Ellen was at the party, she made some negotiations for her famous friends to appear as patients on Grey’s in Season 11. Probably not, but we can dream, right?

How did your Fourth of July plans measure up to Ellen’s? Do you think yours were way better, or does she win this round?
