Tears over the cheese and pineapple sticks?
Although she'd already been seranaded by the entire auditorium at the Teen Choice Awards, the night wasn't over for Selena and El Biebo apparently whisked her family and friends out for a birthday dinner at a posh Beverley Hills restaurant after the show.
"Justin made sure that everyone at Il Cielo treated Selena like a princess last night. He was really adorable about it. You could tell that her birthday dinner party meant a lot to him," an insider told Hollywoodlife.
“There were rose petals on the tables, which was Justin’s idea. He is quite the romantic. The party was held in the back room and was very intimate. There were about 30 guests. There was plenty of food to choose from including grilled calamari, baby spinach with sliced pears, goat cheese and candied walnuts, homemade pappardelle with lobster, grilled salmon and grilled rib-eye steak."
Sounds slightly less intimate that cheese and pineapple sticks for two, but apparently the spread was so good that it made Selena break down into a blubbering heap of joy.
"Justin made a speech which brought tears to Selena. It was basically about how wonderful and exceptional Selena is and everyone stood up and applauded. It was very sweet. There was a beautiful birthday cake for Selena along with a variety of desserts like Tiramisu, sorbet, and apple tarts.
Posting a snap of her enormous, rose covered cake of Facebook, Selena said: "Beyond blessed, so much love. Thank you for the most incredible birthday yet! I'm truly, truly grateful. I love my family, friends and all of you."
To be honest, if someone had presented us with that much food, we would have been crying big, snotty tears of happiness too, but what do you think?
