YES!! It may be Selena Gomez’ birthday, but she’s the one giving a great big gift to her fans for all their support and love. She recorded a brand new version of her hit ‘Kill ‘Em With Kindness’ so click though to hear the passionate new teaser of it.
“Did this on my birthday… coming soon. Thank you for all the love. I love you guys, God bless.” Selena Gomez wrote on her Twitter, implying she just recorded the track. And she easily could have, as it’s nothing but Sel’s gorgeous vocals while she’s playing the piano to the opening lyrics of the song. She slowly and emotionally sings, “The world can be a nasty place/You know it, I know it, yeah/We don’t have to fall from grace/Put down the weapons you fight with,” and it is SO breathtaking. Selena stripped down to just her voice and one instrument is such a thing of beauty, and we totally can’t wait to hear the recording in its entirety when she decides to release it.

So are you as blown away as we are? OMG, Sel is SO incredibly talented we can’t stop listening to just those 20 seconds of it. What an amazing gift this is for her fans. As for what the birthday girl herself wanted, she asked for both loved ones and fans to donate to a charity for lupus, an autoimmune disease that the singer has battled for years. She wrote on her Twitter, “I asked all my friends and family to make a donation for my birthday. If you want to, would love you for to join,” and posted a link for the Alliance for Lupus Research. What a sweetheart, using her birthday as a way to raise money for such a worthy cause.
Of course there’s no way the day could go by without birthday wishes from Taylor Swift, 26, who broke her social media silence for the first time the Kanye West secret tape scandal to send major love to her BFF. She posted an old photo of the pair making a heart shape with each of their hands and captioned it, “I can’t imagine my life without you, Selena. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!” Aww, so sweet. Now that Taylor is back in L.A., we hope the ladies get together for a big birthday bash!
