There are two kinds of people in this world: those who hate surprises, and those who live for them.

Well, now we all know what kind of person Kelly Clarkson is!

The singer, who will turn 35 on April 24, woke up Friday to a birthday scavenger hunt with a puzzling finale. Once Clarkson unscrambled the letters in the Scrabble-letter anagram, she couldn't contain herself.

"Pack your bags ... wait, what?" she read aloud.

"We're going on a girls' trip, but we're not telling you where yet!" a friend responded.

"WHAT?!" Clarkson screamed, jumping to her feet. "I'm totally gonna cry!"

"That was the goal!" the friend said with a laugh.
