Selena Gomez celebrated her 21st birthday with a gigantic cake!
LOLs to all y’all who thought Selena Gomez was going celebrate her birthday with some teeny-tiny cupcake! Not only did the birthday girl ring in the big “2-1” by unveiling her “Birthday” video, but she also went all out with A GINORMOUS BIRTHDAY CAKE (that pretty much trumps most wedding cakes we’ve seen). Now, please take a moment to notice the masterful details on that pastry — this ain’t no last-minute purchase from a local grocery store! That cake has perfect piping and fondant, and stellar layering fit for a pop princess. (We watch “Cake Boss,” so we know cake vocab.)
The “Slow Down” singer shared her birthday photo on her Instagram along with the caption, “Thank you to @bagatellela for an amazing bday!!!! It’s a birthday WEEK! #werk #becauseIcan.” First, we applaud Sel for taking an entire week to celebrate her birthday because, well, that’s just how it should be done! (That and ogling 21 flawless photos of her.) Second, we are DYING to know what she wished for when she blew out the cake’s candles! Maybe she wished that her just-released Stars Dance album would go a bazillion times platinum? Or maybe she wished she’d take home the Best Pop Video VMA? Orrr maybe she wished what we wish every year: that her birthday cake was calorie, fat, and carb-free so she doesn’t have to feel guilty shoving leftovers in her face for the next week.
