“I love everybody! #21,” Justin Bieber tweeted, at the end of excited-sounding posts during his 21st birthday party with friends in the Caribbean on Sunday, March 1.
He later shared a clip of himself — shirtless and legally drinking from a champagne bottle — while dancing to 50 Cent’s “In Da Club,” surrounded by well-wishers waving sparklers.
Thanks to a stray tweet from a local, fans (then media), first discovered Justin and a bunch of pals would be ringing in the Canadian’s 21st birthday blowout on a rented private island near Grenada.
Social media posts by those present revealed who was invited to the Biebs’ bash, and who wasn’t.
The heartthrob’s former girlfriend Selena Gomez and Cody Simpson weren’t at the soiree. Instead, the two got together for a spot of baking. The “Heart Wants What It Wants” singer is supposedly romancing producer-DJ Zedd, while Cody is dating Maybelline model, Gigi Hadid.
Cody and Justin previously released the acoustic song “Home To Mama” from a collection of songs they co-wrote. However, due to their upcoming, solo albums, the release of their collaboration has been indefinitely deferred.

Meanwhile, model, Yovanna Ventura, was at Justin’s party. The pretty brunette was last seen spending clearly romantic time with the “Where Are U Now” singer last March, then on and off throughout the summer.
Yovanna posted an intimate Instagram pic of herself and the birthday
The curvy, Dominican-heritage, 19-year-old also posed with fellow guest Hailey Baldwin.
A kiss for the Biebs.
Hailey was previously rumored to be dating Justin. However, both she and the superstar have always denied any romantic involvement.
Clearly they were telling the truth, as Hailey’s morning-after-the-21st tweet indicates.

At some point during the party, the blonde model shared a photo on Instagram of herself with her arms wrapped around the singer.
She captioned it, “21 #21 #onlybecauseyoure21.″

Videographer Alfredo Flores also shared fun reveals from the birthday festivities.
Justin’s manager, Scooter Braun, subsequently shared a morning-after screenshot of their FaceTiming session on March 1.
Braun’s caption for the snap just below read, “The face you make the day after your 21st bday night. Lol. @justinbieber i remembered more than u. Enjoy the day buddy. Love yah. Now back to changing diapers ) #happybirthdayjustin.”
It followed Braun’s previous posts.
Party attendee, music producer Soundz, also joined in the online action. Viner Matthew Espinosa, producer Maejor Ali and Lil Za were also at the throwdown, as seen in the shot below.
As for the Biebs? The singer shared a pic of himself with his father Jeremy, following the celebrations.
The 21-year-old captioned it, “Look at pops double chin.”
Acknowledging the thousands of online birthday wishes posted by fans and others, Justin shared a thank you tweet that reiterated his stated decision to keep moving in a positive, controversy-free direction this year — and beyond.
The young singer wrote,
Thanks for all the birthday love. Grateful for everything. Let’s be better this year. Thanks
