In Swift’s case, that’s O.G. pal Selena Gomez, who turned 26 on July 22. Despite being apart from her longtime buddy on her special day — Swift spent the weekend performing in New Jersey on her “Reputation” tour — the pop star and newly minted Cats actress couldn’t resist marking the occasion in an adorable way.
Cue the cake!
Despite the distance, Swift took the time to bake a homemade cake for Gomez, complete with gooey layers of pink icing, a heart design, and the message “Gomez or Go Home.” Sure beats the standard belated birthday card and empty “I’ll buy you a drink when I see you next” promise.
Swift wasn’t the only Gomez pal to honor her birthday. Photographer Petra Collins, who has collaborated with the singer on several recent projects, called her a “constant and strong woman in my life.” Supermodel Miranda Kerr also devoted a post to the birthday girl.
