According to E! News (opens in new tab), Beyoncé's mother, Tina Knowles Lawson, was also in attendance. The star-studded event was attended by a plethora of celebrities including Oprah Winfrey, Halle Berry, Ava DuVernay, Taraji P. Henson, Kelly Rowland, and Viola Davis.

Speaking to reporters at the event, Winfrey discussed Perry and said (per Fox Business), "He didn't wait for other people to validate or to say you should go this way or that way. He said I'm going to create my own way and as we can see here, become a force for himself."

Per AJC (opens in new tab), Perry's new studio "is the only major film studio in the nation owned by an African American." Fox Business (opens in new tab) described the incredible venture as a "330-acre studio" that "cost $250 million to build."

Beyoncé recently surprised fans by sharing a huge collection of previously unseen family photos (opens in new tab) on her website. Fans were given a behind-the-scenes look at Blue Ivy (opens in new tab)'s rose gold birthday party, as well as sweet photos of the twins, Rumi and Sir (opens in new tab).
