Birthday Girl Selena Gomez's Circle of Hollywood Friends
As one of the sweetest girls in Hollywood, it’s no surprise that birthday girl Selena Gomez, who turns 21 today, is often surrounded by famous friends. (Her plans: she just told Ryan Seacrest in a new interview, “I’ll have a birthday party but I’ll have a dinner on the actual birthday and I will order my first glass at a restaurant.”) She’s made strong connections with other stars through work, most recently bonding with Ashley Benson, Vanessa Hudgens and James Franco on the promo trail for Spring Breakers. She and Demi Lovato navigated young life in the spotlight together when they both landed lead roles on Disney shows (they met at an audition).
And when it comes to confiding in someone about love or relationship problems, Selena turns to the girl who puts relationships at the centre of her music: Taylor Swift. Of Taylor, Selena told Seventeen, “Every single problem I ever have is healable by Taylor Swift! If I ever I have an issue, Taylor has gone through it, because she’s older than me, and she gives the most thought-out answers . . . We literally talk every day.” From Taylor to Demi and even Kristen Stewart, click through to see Selena’s inner circle, who she says are integral to staying grounded in the industry: “You are who you surround yourself with. I know that’s such a cliché quote, but it’s true.”
