Just because she's still (occasionally) running around with Justin Bieber doesn't mean Selena Gomez doesn't have her priorities straight. On Wednesday afternoon, the 22-year-old former Disney star stopped by the Children's Hospital in Los Angeles to brighten some patients' days… and she seemed to enjoy it as much as the kids did.
"Spending time with @ChildrensLA :)" she tweeted during her visit.
Clad in a flowing white blouse, ripped jeans, and dramatic wine-colored hat with just a touch of makeup, the "Come and Get It" singer was nothing short of glowing as she made her rounds visiting with the kids. A series of Instagram posts documented her new friendships.
In one shot, she's hanging out with a little boy, watching him intently (though he seems to be more interested in whatever's in his own hands than in the pop star sitting next to him).
In another, she flashed a "Team Connor" bracelet to show her support for a patient.
In her final shot from the day, Selena's cuddling up to an adorable little girl, who looks thrilled to be meeting the songstress. "Princess," Selena sweetly captioned the snap.
Not surprisingly, she succeeded in cheering up these brave kids. "Selena took the time to stop and visit with each one, hear their stories, give hugs, share laughs and provide encouragement," the hospital said in a statement to E! News. "It was a much-needed lift for these children and their families during an incredibly difficult time."
This isn't the first time the triple-threat has taken the time to cheer up children. Gomez, who currently serves as an ambassador for the Ryan Seacrest Foundation, has visited many other pediatric hospitals over the last few years, including the Children's Medical Center of Dallas and the Levine Children's Hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina.
"Thank you for visiting and spending a special moment with our kids!" Children's Hospital LA tweeted after Selena's visit. Hopefully Gomez knows how much her efforts are appreciated, though something tell us that the smile on that little girl's face was more than enough.
