Selena Gomez made a rare return to Instagram Monday night (February 11) to share some pics of herself living it up on her best friend Courtney Barry’s bachelorette trip.
“My best friend is getting married, so we celebrated her! Future Mrs. Lopez,” Gomez captioned the snaps of herself and a few friends. They’re all wearing swimsuits and lounging on some beach, which is just rude to us mortals who are currently trekking through the snow. I guess my invitation was lost in the mail.
From the looks of these photos, it looks like it was a great, relaxing trip. Check out the snaps, below, including a casual shot that Barry posted of Gomez riding a horse on the beach. (She captioned it with a simple blue heart emoji.) Is this how Gomez is going to come riding into 2019 to save pop music? Fingers crossed, because we need her!
Gomez has been celebrating Barry’s upcoming nuptials for a while now. In January she attended her bridal shower, looking stunning in a red dress.
In August 2018, Gomez posted a tribute to her longtime friend on Instagram. “You are an incredible woman,” she wrote. “The way you handle life’s most confusing moments is indescribable and graceful. You are moved by the littlest stories to the most heartbreaking ones, you will give someone your perfume if they say you smell nice, you are freaking hilarious and always stand firm in your faith, a loving sister, an amazing friend and a beautiful daughter. You are the definition of FEARFULLY and WONDERFULLY made baby!”
Selena Gomez returned to Instagram in January after a fourth-month hiatus and opened up about her challenging 2018. (The singer reportedly sought treatment in October following an “emotional breakdown” about low white blood cell count, though this was never confirmed by her team.)
“It’s been awhile since you have heard from me, but I wanted to wish everyone a happy new year and to thank you for your love and support,” she wrote in January. “Last year was definitely a year of self-reflection, challenges and growth. It’s always those challenges which show you who you are and what you are capable of overcoming. Trust me, it’s not easy, but I am proud of the person I am becoming and look forward to the year ahead. Love you all.”
