Selena Gomez celebrates her 'Birthday'

What do you do for your birthday if you are a former child star turning 21?

If you're Selena Gomez, you post a video of your new single - titled, appropriately enough, "Birthday."

On Monday the former Disney actress posted the music video with a message to fans: "I wanted to celebrate my 21st Birthday with all of you, so we made this video for us all to celebrate to," she said. "Thank You for all the love and support you have shown and continue to show me. I love you all so much!!"


Gomez has had a great deal going on leading up to her big day, including the release of her debut album "Stars Dance" and a sitdown with Ryan Seacrest to talk about the difficulty of being in the public eye - especially when it came to her very public breakup with Justin Bieber.

She also shared what she looks for in a guy.

"Egos turn me off, big time," Gomez said. "I mean it's hard to just date in this industry, it really is, because it doesn't have to be anything serious, it can just be something fun—and it should be because I'm young—but, you just can't really help the people that you meet or that you fall in love with or that you wanna date. I want someone who can make me laugh and just be normal and understand my lifestyle and how I wanna live it."

  2. Justin needs too be with a woman show has her head together.

    He cannot have this type of women she is of no use too him anymore and she is problems. In his line of business he does not need a woman that will make him look bad, he needs woman who will make him look good, he does not need the negative exposure he has received from her and has made him look like a fool.

    He cannot be degraded as a human being by this type of person...she needs too move on and allow him too move on.

    Have you ever heard Selena Gomez rap? She's fantastic, but it's doubtful she'll ever do it on record, at least not until she's older and well past her "Disney" stage. The best rap song I've heard her do is an original called "My Name Is...." It starts out like this: "My name is Selena / I have a v a g e e n a..."

    What a hypocrite! Justin Bieber is her best fiend on/off BF and she says Ego's are a turnoff. Yeah, right – totally believable! Just like your suicide story you just want sympathy and attention.

      Demi Lovato is the one who recently said that she considered suicide at a very young age, not Selena Gomez. I believe you're confused.

      Perhaps Selena is being genuine by saying that egos turn her off; that might be the reason she's no longer dating Bieber. She actually has a lot more going for her, or is at least more on the ball than some of her peers - Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato come to mind.

      Ok, I got her confused with the other one. All disney people look the same.

    "Egos turn me off, big time", Gomez says. Really? You dated the Biebs. Nobody has a bigger ego than him. This girl seems like a sweet girl. I hope she doesn't get all caught up in the craziness that a lot of these young "stars" are going through right now. Although, it does give us a lot to talk about, right?
