Thanks to Taylor Swift, 22 has become a monumental age. It used to seem significantly less special than turning 21, but now there's a whole song about it. So that makes it pretty great, right? On July 22, Selena Gomez joined the club of 22 year olds. Can you believe she's already that old? It seems like just yesterday she was a wizard from Waverly Place. Okay, so that was actually a few years ago. So what did she do to mark the occasion? Selena Gomez celebrated her birthday a day early with her pal Cara Delevingne. They reportedly hung out on a billionaire's boat all day. Obviously they posted evidence to Instagram showing them casually posing in front of a helicopter. Because how else would they travel around? Birthdays deserve fancy transportation.
Sadly, her bestie T. Swift wasn't there. This is super disappointing since Swift is the queen of turning 22. She probably would have crafted her a super cute gift, too! At least she posted this thoughtful Insta. I mean, it's almost equivalent to a homemade needlepoint. (Except not at all.)
Since Tay's photo tribute was a bit mediocre, here's a better one to honor the occasion. Because I don't know about you, but Selena's definitely feeling 22. For your convenience, here's the song so you can listen as you scroll down:
It feels like a perfect night to dress up like hipsters
And make fun of our exes
It feels like a perfect night for breakfast at midnight
To fall in love with strangers
Uh-huh, uh-huh. Yeaaah.
We're happy, free...
Confused and lonely at the same time
Tonight's the night when we forget about the deadlines
It's time. Uh-oh!
I don't know about you, but I'm feeling 22
Everything will be alright if you keep me next to you
You don't know about me, but I'll bet you want to
Everything will be alright
If we just keep dancing like we're 22
Enjoy dancing like you're 22 while you still can, Selena. Since according to Blink-182, nobody likes you when you're 23... Just kidding. Happy birthday!
