Justin who? Selena Gomez's star-studded birthday bash proves she's over Mr Baldwin
Selena Gomez had a fun weekend as she was surrounded by her friends and it makes us wish we had friends like hers.
Selena Gomez is 26! The singer celebrated her 26th birthday on Sunday (July 22) surrounded by her friends. While there are many speculating that Selena may not be too happy to hear about her ex, Justin Bieber's engagement to Hailey Baldwin, her pictures from the weekend says otherwise.
Selena's day was filled with surprises all thanks to her loving friends. The night before her birthday, Selena attended the Imagine Dragons concert. Little did she know that a bigger surprise was waiting for her as Grace VanderWaal, who was opening for the band for the concert, had a surprise planned for the singer backstage. While Selena did not share the details of the event, Grace was quick to keep all the fans updated on social media.
Surrounded with cupcakes that read "Happy Birthday Selena" to boxes of pizzas along with fruit plates, it was everything that Selena had wanted. At the same time, Selena's longtime best friend, Taylor Swift also made sure that she did her fair share of work for the 'Wolves' singer. Taylor could not be there with Selena as she is currently on her Reputation tour in New Jersey but that did not stop her from celebrating Selena's birthday.
Taking to social media Taylor showed her fans the cake she had baked for her gal pal. With the number 26 and the all-caps phrase "GOMEZ OR GO HOME," the cake looked flawless. Captioning the picture Taylor wrote, "Will I let distance stop me from celebrating my best friend's bday?" She then added, "I mean, I could but why would I?"
While Taylor indulged in some sweet treat, Selena was also not far from her sweet wonderland. The singer took her birthday celebration to a yacht. Guests included good friends Raquelle Stevens, Courtney J. Barry, Sam Lopez, and Connar Franklin. The Italian-themed birthday also had Happy Birthday written in Italian as "Buon Compleanno, Selena". There was also an unlimited supply of pasta for people to give into their pasta cravings.
On Monday (July 23) Selena took to Instagram to share some of the snaps from her celebration. While the singer did not share everything from the celebration, she did share a few polaroid snaps which showed fans what the weekend was all about. No doubt, Selena was beaming with happiness throughout the evening and who wouldn't with so many friends around her on her special day.
She also took to Instagram to thank her fans for their wishes. "Another year down.. Thank you for all the bday love. I couldn’t be more appreciative of you and my best friends for celebrating with me. I love you guys like crazy! God bless!" she wrote along with the series of pictures she shared.
