Happy (belated) birthday, Miley Cyrus! The “Flowers” singer rang in her 31st birthday on Nov. 23. And in true fashion, the actress celebrated her special day by putting on a concert—for herself.

The Tennessee native donned a figure-hugging black bustier-style mini dress for the occasion, and shared several video snippets from the intimate performance on Instagram the same day. She wore her hair in a slicked-back bun and accessorized with sheer tights and over-the-elbow black opera gloves. Cyrus also offered up still images of her outfit, in which she wore a slightly longer black midi skirt and accessorized with a leopard print handbag and oversized black sunglasses.

“My birthday gift to MYSELF this year was VERY on brand,” she quipped in an Instagram caption. “I performed for MYSELF and sang my favorite songs including my own. First ‘live’ performance of Flowers was to an audience full of my friends and family. Taking this song back to the seed… she sprouted sensationally. Grateful for the growth in us both. 🌹💋❤️ With Love, Miley.”

While tons of Cyrus’s 215 million followers piped in to the comments to wish her a happy birthday, others inquired when she’ll put on a show for a larger audience.

“Well… when is the performance for the fans? 🙄,” one person inquired with some sass.

“a voice that ages like WINNNNEEEEE,” a fan noted of Cyrus’s signature rasp.

“Forgot it was thanksgiving because the only holiday that matters is your birthday,” another user joked.

“So happy you chose to do this for yourself. FAITHFULLY cover is INSANE. ❤️🔥😍,” someone else added of Cyrus’s cover of the 1983 Journey track.
