No distance could stop “Cats” star Taylor Swift from ringing in BFF Selena Gomez’s 26th birthday over the weekend. Swift wished Gomez, who was in Los Angeles this weekend, a happy birthday all the way from NYC. She even baked her a cake, which Cosmo captured from Instagram.
Swift was on tour in NYC for her album Reputation. Gomez has been filming a project in upstate New York near the Catskills, so she should be back to fête with Swift IRL soon.
But Gomez still had fun with her LA pals over the weekend. According to a report by Elle, artist Grace Vanderwaal surprised Gomez backstage at her concert with Imagine Dragons in Inglewood, California.
But the party did not stop there. Gomez celebrated her birthday with an Italian-style yacht party with a group of friends as well. There was pasta and great lighting galore. Many of Gomez’s non-famous friends showed face, too, which was nice to see.
Fans who are eager to see Selener rebound after her breakup with Justin Bieber (who is currently engaged to Hailey Baldwin) noted that she and Andrea Iervolino were pretty cozy at her boat bash.
Iervolino is an Italian film producer and has been spotted with Gomez in Italy in the last few months.
Who knows if they’re friends or more, but either way, Selena Gomez’s 26th birthday looked pretty, for lack of a better word, “lit.”
