Selena Gomez “Birthday” Music Video; Pictures with Lily Collins and Julianne Hough

By  | 

Selena Gomez knows how to bring in the big 2-1 the right way. Prior to the clock striking midnight on her big day, the singer partied with a group of friends — including Lily Collins and Julianne Hough! (Okay, so that was really for Julianne’s birthday, but it was still the same weekend) — and announced that there would be a surprise for her fans at 12:01. And that surprise was… a new music video!

With her Stars Dance album dropping tomorrow, and “Birthday” being the first track, it makes perfect sense for the MV release to be now even though “Slow Down” just debuted last week. Not much production went into it; just a bunch of friends — like Francia Raisa and Sammy Droke — dancing and having a good time. Sel captioned the video, saying: “I wanted to celebrate my 21st Birthday with all of you, so we made this video for us all to celebrate to. Thank You for all the love and support you have shown and continue to show me. I love you all so much!!”
