Gomez's "Spring Breakers" co-star Ashley Benson also sent well wishes her way.

Zendaya, who's followed in Gomez's footsteps as a Disney Channel star, took the time to pay the former child star a compliment.

Gomez herself posted a clip that shows her partying with pals to her tune "Birthday." The track is from "Stars Dance," the first album Gomez has recorded without her backup band, The Scene, which comes out on Tuesday.
