When you're an A-list singer traveling the world with your Canadian crooner boyfriend on tour, walking the red carpet at the Met Gala in Coach, and dropping a long-awaited album with bangers such as 'Bad Liar' and 'Fetish', it wouldn't exactly come as a surprise if Selena Gomez wanted to revel in her success and fortune by taking a private jet to the Bahamas for the weekend, cover herself in the latest Haute Couture creations à la Celine Dion, and show off just how much she's achieved in her 25 years.

However, Gomez decided the perfect way to celebrate turning the big 2-5 over the weekend would be to enjoy a low-key party at her home with family and friends in Los Angeles.

Taking to Instagram to share some snaps from the festivities, which appear to show a pyjama-clad Selena surrounded by a room of her loved ones, white and teal-coloured balloons, sitting on a kitchen counter in front of two teal-hued-iced cakes, the 25-year-old took the time to thank her fans for their continued support over the years.

'Thank you for all of my bday love. I couldn't be more blessed. A lot of you don't realise how much you mean to me. I. Love. You. --think 25 is going to be epic,' she captioned the snap.

In another picture she can be seen cutting her cakes, surrounded by her friends, and captioned the picture: 'My people'.

Unfortunately for the star, her boyfriend The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) couldn't be in attendance as he was gearing up to perform at the Lollapalooza concert in Paris on Friday night.

However, it appears his no-show didn't dampen the singer's spirits, with Selena deciding her birthday would be best celebrated by her fans by encouraging them to make a donation to the Lupus Research Alliance on her behalf via Twitter.

The star was diagnosed with Lupus – a chronic autoimmune disease where the body's immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks normal tissue – in 2013, which forced her to cancell a tour of Asia and Australia.

Fortunately, The Weeknd made it back in time to celebrate his Texan girlfriend's belated birthday on Saturday, and posted an adorable video of him driving back home while playing his own song, 'I Feel It Coming', on his Instagram Stories.

Adorable much?

Happy birthday, Selena!
