Selena Gomez is surrounding herself with only the best of friends.
The “I Can’t Get Enough” singer and a slew of her closest gal pals threw their friend Raquelle Stevens an epic birthday party, filled with pink balloons, a sun-shaped cake and even an adorable tiny puppy! Stevens took to Instagram on Thursday to share a photo of herself with Gomez, Simi Khadra, Haze Khadra, Ashley Cook, Zahra Ayub and Caroline Franklin.
The singer is seen kneeling and wearing light blue jeans, a gray sweatshirt and white booties. She’s all smiles as she wears her hair up in a ponytail and rocks hoop earrings.
Khadra also took to her Instagram Story to share a cute snap of Gomez cuddling up with a small pup.
Earlier this month, a source told ET that Gomez has been focusing on her new music and hanging out with those who keep her grounded.
“Selena is working out a lot, taking different workout classes and hiking. She has also been spending time with her close friends, most who aren’t in the Hollywood scene,” the source said. “Selena does a good job of hanging out with people who aren’t in Hollywood — it’s always been her thing. She has famous friends, but the friends that keep her grounded have been around forever and Selena can be her true self [around them].”
Last week, the former Disney Channel star also went on Instagram Live to reveal that a new record was on the way.
“I’m just nervous about it, honestly,” she stated. “‘Cause I feel like the next few choices that I’m gonna make are very crucial. So I’m trying to be really, really diligent and just patient with everything…the album is coming very soon.”
