In a new interview with Rolling Stone for the publication's latest cover story, Gomez revealed that she threw herself a wedding-themed celebration to ring in the end of her 20s and the start of a new decade.

"I thought I would be married by now, so I threw myself a wedding," she told the outlet of the party, which was held over the summer.

According to Rolling Stone, Gomez invited various people to the event who played an important role in her twenties, whether she was still close to them or not. Some guests included Miley Cyrus, Olivia Rodrigo, Francia Raísa, Camila Cabello and Billie Eilish, as well as her little sister, Gracie.

I am walking forward encouraged by so many strong, empowering people around me. I want to try my best to take the beautiful and the painful one day at a time and let it all make me into the very best me that I can be for myself/others/you."

The Rare Beauty founder went on to share that her "heart feels full" and "grateful" after "a few days of celebrating," adding: "I can say that I'm starting to really like 30. Thank you SO much for being a part of my life, here's to another decade! Love you all inside and out so much it hurts!"

Gomez had previously opened up to PEOPLE ahead of her milestone birthday in January, when she said that she was "excited" about stepping into a new decade.

"I love growing up," the singer said. "When I was younger, I was scared of it, and I thought by now my life would look so different. But now I'm like, 'Wow, this is not what I ever expected, and I couldn't be more thrilled.' I've stopped caring about what people have to say, and that's been wonderful."
