Selena Gomez took to social media on Thursday (July 23) to show fans how she rang in her 28th birthday earlier this week.
In the Instagram post, the pop star shared a trio of Polaroids depicting her posing in a flowing gold lame dress in front of giant pink balloons spelling out “Happy Birthday Selena” and making a wish before blowing out the candles on a colorful cake.
“Left my phone for most of yesterday to be present in the moment, but have been reading all of your posts today,” she captioned the snaps. “Just wanted to say thank you for every single message- I feel so much love from y’all…I love you guys so much and here’s to 28.”
Gomez certainly had plenty to celebrate in her 28th year: not only did the singer notch her third consecutive No. 1 solo album on the Billboard 200 with the release of Rare back in January, the album also spawned her very first Hot 100 chart-topper thanks to its vulnerable lead single “Lose You To Love Me.” A few months later, she added to Rare with a deluxe edition featuring three more tracks: fourth single “Boyfriend,” “She” and “Souvenir.”
More recently, the superstar teamed up with rising pop singer Trevor Daniel for the official remix of his 2020 single “Past Life” and launched a $100 million Rare Impact Fund for mental health services amid the ongoing pandemic through her Rare Beauty cosmetics company.
