Selena Gomez has made her return to Instagram after a long break and shared an emotional post as she celebrates her 27th birthday.
Selena Gomez has officially made her return to Instagram to send a loving message to her fans and explain why she's been 'crying grateful tears' as she celebrates her 27th birthday with friends and family in Italy.
The pop star has remained pretty low key in recent times, but has been papped strolling the streets of Rome, and reportedly continuing the Italian getaway in Capri.
Writing to her 153 million Instagram followers, the 'Back To You' singer posted a heartfelt message to commemorate turning the big 2-7.
"Well I’m 27 now. I wanted to thank each and every one of you for your words on my bday. Not just the quick notes."
"The thought that goes behind every word you write usually ends up with me crying grateful tears like I did last night. Praying for all of you!! I LOVE YOU."
The singer had previously announced a social media hiatus, letting fans know she was "taking a social media break. Again. As much as I am grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I am equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given."

Mood lol (I was looking at myself in the mirror -like an idiot!) Update: taking a social media break. Again. As much as I am grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I am equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given. Kindness and encouragement only for a bit! Just remember- negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings. Obvi.
She's recently walked the red carpet for the star-studded new Zombie movie set for release, The Dead Don't Die, which also stars Vanessa Hudgens' boyfriend Austin Butler and Bill Murray looking stunning, as usual, and we couldn't be more excited to have her back on the big screen.
