THE COUNTDOWN

Kanye West rings in his 30th birthday a day early with just a few of his friends at a star-studded party Thursday at Louis Vuitton's Fifth Avenue store in New York. On his way into the bash, West told PEOPLE: "I'm in my 20s as we speak right now, but at midnight, I'll be 30. I'm already 30 in Japan and London and everywhere else."
