Selena Gomez is emotional in TikTok clip as she thanks people for happy birthday wishes after turning 30: ‘I don’t take that for granted’
‘I wanted to say thank you so much to every person that wished me a happy birthday,’ the actress-singer said as she sat in a room wearing an off-white fleece jacket over a black tank top with her wavy black locks parted.
Gomez, who plays Mabel Mora on the Hulu series Only Murders in the Building, continued: ‘I got to see some of your messages, I don’t read a lot of comments but the few that I read were really, really sweet and I just want you to know that I don’t take that for granted.
The latest: Selena Gomez took to TikTok on Thursday with kind words for her fans who wished her a happy birthday as she turned 30 last week
‘I could not be more grateful and … I’m 30!’ Gomez said. ‘I’m so far enjoying it and I just wanted to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for being in my life, for growing up with me, for putting up with me – thank you guys so much and I hope you have a wonderful evening, night day morning, wherever you are.’

In a message she posted on the Rare Impact Fund page, Gomez described mental health as a ‘personal’ issue for her, going into detail about her awareness and ambitions to help others with her efforts.
‘Figuring out how to manage my own mental health hasn’t always been easy, but it’s something I am constantly working on and I hope I can help others work on, too,’ she said. ‘Sometimes, my highs are really high, and my lows can take me out for weeks at a time. When I found out I suffer from mental health issues, in many ways it was a relief because I could better understand what’s going on.
‘I realized that there was a way to get help, and for me, that also meant finding the right treatments. Taking care of my mental health – just like my physical health – takes work, but when I do, I am happier, I am healthier, and more in control of my emotions and thoughts.’
She said that she wished ‘more people talked about mental health’ when she was younger as she ‘could have learned and understood what was going on with [her] own health earlier on.’
