‘Jelena’ Is Back: Selena Gomez Dropped A Single Hinting At Relationship With Bieber, And Hailey Had Something To Say

It appears Selena Gomez’s newest hit isn’t just doing some healing for her. After an intense week that included the drop of two insightful songs and some fan speculation, and even some bullying, Gomez and her ex’s wife Hailey Baldwin might be ready to set aside their grievances.

After fans threw shade towards Baldwin earlier this week, the model showed support to Selena through an Instagram like.

Soon after Gomez’s song “Lose You To Love Me” first dropped, Baldwin posted the song “I’ll Kill You” by Summer Walker to her Instagram Story. Fans speculated that Hailey was throwing shade at Selena, but Baldwin quickly shot down the speculation and called it “BS.” Typical to social media culture, the bullies swarmed and struck at Baldwin until Gomez intervened.

Then recently, after a friend of Gomez shared an image celebrating the singer, Baldwin liked it.

Could this mean it’s all over?

Earlier this week, Gomez dropped a new song called “Lose You to Love Me,” and literally everyone thinks it’s about Justin Bieber. This morning, Hailey Bieber posted Story of Summer Walker’s song “I’ll Kill You,” on her IG story and she had the entire internet reading into the whole thing. Here’s everything that went down.

Selena Gomez sings, ”You promised the world and I fell for it, I put you first and you adored it.” “Lose You to Love Me” traces a toxic relationship with some pointed lines that have fueled speculation that the tune is Gomez purging her heartbreak over Bieber.

Bieber and Gomez’s nearly decade-long on-again-off-again relationship officially ended in March of 2018. A few months later, Bieber reportedly began to date Baldwin. By July, the two were engaged.

Yes, Justin is now a married man, but that hasn’t stopped the internet from talking about “Jelena,” again.

Justin Bieber married Hailey Baldwin —or Hailey Bieber rather— in the autumn of 2018. After a few weeks of speculation, the singer took to social media to confirm the marriage. Bieber published an Instagram photograph of the duo walking hand-in-hand with the simple caption: “My wife is awesome.” Baldwin promptly changed her social domain to @haileybieber and the Beliebers went wild. “It took some getting used to, for sure,” Baldwin told Bustle of changing her name. “It’s definitely strange, it takes adjusting.” 

In September of this year, the couple threw a larger celebration.

Justin and Hailey exchanged vows in front of 154 guests, according to People. The ceremony took place at the Somerset Chapel of Montage Palmetto Bluff hotel in Bluffton, South Carolina. The couple reportedly “fell in love” with the venue after visiting the area. The Biebers apparently “changed their minds so many times” about the ideal venue (past reports said they were eyeing Canada), but they ultimately agreed on this idyllic southern location.

Selena’s new song “Lose you to Love me,” is her first single since 2018.

The piano-driven pop ballad was released worldwide with an accompanying music video that —fun fact— was filmed using an Iphone 11. The song was dropped more than a year after Selena’s last single titled “Back to You” in 2018, which was released for the second season of Netflix‘s 13 Reasons Why

After the release of “Lose You to Love Me,” Selena fans were completely outraged by Hailey.

Selena fans everywhere think the song is a not-so-subtle dig at her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber. After Hailey’s recent Instagram activity Jelena stans had the perfect bait to come for her yet again in some more of that three-way drama that has been going on for approximately 5ever now. Selena fans were completely outraged by Hailey’s “I’ll Kill You” Instagram story because it looked like Hailey was shading Selena for shading Justin… or so they thought.

On Instagram, literally moments after the song’s release, Hailey posted a screenshot to her Instagram Story of Summer Walker’s song “I’ll Kill You.” It wasn’t a good look. Naturally, Selenators started calling out Hailey. Some people online claimed that Hailey was actually threatening to kill Selena (which is honestly such a reach), while others swarmed Hailey’s IG with quotes from Selena’s song and dragged Justin for moving on from Selena so quickly post-breakup.

Following the online backlash, Hailey made sure to set the record straight. After Just Jared posted about the drama to its Instagram account, Hailey replied and said, “Please stop with this nonsense…there is no ‘response.’ This is complete BS.” Hailey later deleted her comment, but since the internet is forever, there are screenshots—we have receipts.

So what does this all mean, exactly? Well, it mainly means Selena fans will never not hate Hailey, so long as Justin is married to her. Only time will tell if there’s more Selena shade directed toward Justin and Hailey, so we’ll just have to wait for another new single.

“Love You To Lose Me”is expected to be the lead single from the 27-year-old’s potential upcoming third studio album, which would serve as a followup to 2015’s Revival.

Over the weekend, singer Justin Bieber was accused by two women of sexual assault. On Sunday, he took to Twitter to refute one of the allegations but has not commented on the other.

In a lengthy series of posts shared on Twitter this past Sunday, Bieber denied sexual assault claims made by a woman, known only as Daniel.

In a series of tweets, which were shared by the account PopCrave and have now been deleted, Danielle accused Bieber of assaulting her on March 9, 2014, after his performance at SXSW. She claims the singer took her to a Four Seasons Hotel in Austin, where he sexually assaulted her. In response to the tweets, Bieber said he’d been encouraged by his wife to speak up and claimed that “there is no truth to this story.” He also shared various receipts from AirBnbs and an article in an attempt to show that he had not been at the hotel mentioned in the claim.

“I don’t normally address things as I have dealt with random accusations my entire career[,] but after talking with my wife and team I have decided to speak up on an issue tonight. Rumors are rumors but sexual abuse is something I don’t take lightly. I wanted to speak out right away but out of respect to so many victims who deal with these issues daily, I wanted to make sure I gathered the facts before I made any statement,” Bieber wrote in his Twitter post. “In the past 24 hours, a new Twitter [account] appeared that told a story of myself involved with sexual abuse on March 9, 2014[,] in Austin[,] Texas[,] at the Four [S]easons [H]otel. I want to be clear. There is no truth to this story. In fact, as I will soon show I was never present at that location.”

In his claims, Bieber said that while he had performed at SXSW that year he attended the festival with his then-girlfriend Selena Gomez.

To back up his claims, Bieber shared photos of two of them together at the time. He also shared a series of email correspondences and receipts to show evidence of his Airbnb reservation. “I stayed with Selena and our friends at an Airbnb on the 9th and on the 10th stayed at a Westin because our hotel reservation at LÀ Quinta and not the four seasons was messed up. Here are the receipts for the hotel on the 10th,” Bieber wrote in his tweet.

Bieber also shared tweets from March 2014 that showed people had claimed to have seen him at the Four Seasons Hotel around the same time.

Bieber asserted that while he was at the restaurant he had not gone to the hotel. “Every claim of sexual abuse should be taken very seriously and this is why my response was needed,” Justin replied to the claims. “However this story is factually impossible and that is why I will be working with [T]witter and authorities to take legal action.”

In a separate claim, a woman identified only as Kadi also accused Bieber of sexual assault.

In response to Danielle’s claim, Kadi wrote “I believe Danielle, I am a victim of sexual assault by Justin Bieber too.” Kadi, whose tweets remain up, accused the singer of sexually assaulting her in New York City in 2015. Kadi claimed that after a brief encounter outside the Langham Hotel, where Justin was staying she was invited to his room around 2:30 a.m.

In her tweets, Kadi claimed Bieber’s bodyguard invited her up to his hotel to join a party where he took her to a separate area and assaulted her despite her asking him to stop. “I asked him to stop and continued to say that I cannot have sex whit[h] anyone prior to marriage (traditional and cultural thing) So Bieber started pushing me to the bed and have his body against mine, he pinned me down pulled my leggings down and his shorts and penetrated me (which is considered a very bad thing unless by the husband) it aggravated me and I pushed him and kicked him between his legs and run out to the living room,” she claimed

Selena Gomez Offered A Special Commencement Speech To Immigrads Celebrating Their Special Achievement

It is graduation season and Covid-19 has changed how we conduct graduation ceremonies. This year, few high school seniors will be able to walk across the stage as states and counties protect their health and offer graduation alternatives. Celebrities have stepped up to give these seniors special commencement speeches.

Selena Gomez wanted to give immigrads a special commencement speech honoring their experience.

“Congratulations to all of the Immigrads,” Gomez says int he video. “I know that this is a virtual ceremony, but it is very real and it is very real to all of the families, and all of you, and your communities. I want you guys to know that you matter and that your experiences are a huge part of the American story.”

Gomez used her speech to connect with the immigrant graduates by relating to their stories.

“When my family came here from Mexico, they set into motion my American story, as well as theirs,” Gomez says. “I’m a proud third-generation American-Mexican, and my family’s journey and their sacrifices helped me get me to where I am today. Mine is not a unique story. Each and every one of you have a similar tale of becoming an American.”

Gomez gave her address for Define American, an immigrant-led organization.

Define American “is a narrative and culture change organization that uses media and the power of storytelling to transcend politics and shift the conversation about immigrants, identity, and citizenship in a changing America,” reads the website.

Gomez fans are here to support the singer and her speech.

Gomez has used her platform to confront major topics in American politics and society. She produced “13 Reasons Why” to enter the conversation about teenage suicide and has used her social media platform to celebrate undocumented immigrants chasing the American Dream.

Gomez ended her speech giving all of the immigrads some words of encouragement.

“So, regardless of where your family is from, regardless of your immigration status, you have taken action to earn an education, to make your families proud, and to open up your worlds,” Gomez says. “So, I’m sending all of my love to you guys today, and congratulations, and I hope that you guys are set off to be everything that you want to be.”
