miranda cosgrove whitedress Miranda Cosgrove turns 18, wishes for a tandem bike (and a car)It’s the simple things in life for Miranda Cosgrove.

  ]]>“iCarly” star celebrates her 18th birthday on Saturday (May 14), but don’t expect her to have a mega list of demands on her special day. “I’m excited,” she tells E! News of becoming an adult. “I get to vote. And I can drive. I could already do that when I was 16, but I’m going to actually do it now.” When it comes to a set of wheels, Cosgrove is refreshingly similar to millions of teenage girls across the country — aside from having a thing for VWs, she admits to caring more about the color of her future ride than a logo. “I wanted a Volkswagen bug for a long time,” she explains. “Jerry [Trainor], who plays Spencer on ‘iCarly,’ actually has this really cute little BMW. So I was thinking about maybe something like that. I’m more into like color than like the type of car and stuff. I don’t know much about cars so I’m just more into picking the right color.” Okay, so a car isn’t exactly a minor purchase… but how many teen superstars hope for a new bicycle on the anniversary of their birth?  “This is going to sound really lame, but I like bike riding,” she says. “I tandem bike ride a lot with my friend so I would like a new tandem bike. That would be awesome.” Happy Birthday, Miranda. We hope all your bike riding dreams come true.
