‘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.

Selena Gomez Releases New Spanish-Language Single ‘De Una Vez’ and Teases Full Spanish Album: ‘I’m Targeting My Heritage’

Selena Gomez Releases New Spanish-Language Single ‘De Una Vez’ and Teases Full Spanish Album: ‘I’m Targeting My Heritage’

Good news, Selenators! Word on the street is that Selena Gomez will soon be dropping her first-ever Spanish language album. The rumors started after Gomez dropped a surprising (and beautiful!) new Spanish-language single, “De Una Vez”.

Soon after the single dropped, rumors of a full Spanish-language studio album began to swirl when murals promoting “De Una Vez” and a yet-unreleased single “Baila Conmigo” popped up across, Mexico.

To make matters even better, Selena already dropped “De Una Vez”‘s music video.

The lush and imaginative video has been garnering praise for its inclusion of Latin American visuals and symbols. Gomez hired Tania Verduzco and Adrian Perez to direct her video–a husband and wife team who hail from Mexico and Spain, respectively and go by the moniker Los Pérez.

Of hiring Spanish speakers to direct her video, Gomez revealed to Vogue online that the decision was intentional. “If I was going to completely immerse myself into a project inspired by Latin culture, I wanted to work with native Spanish speaking creators,” she said.

And indeed, Verduzco and Perez tried to infuse as much Latin spirit into the video’s conception as possible.

“Magical realism has always been part of the Latin culture, whether it be in art or telenovelas,” Gomez told Vogue. “I wanted [to capture] that sense of a supernatural world.”

They accomplished this sense of magical realism by utilizing motifs from Mexican folk art, like Milagro, which is symbolized by the glowing heart that is beating within Gomez’s chest throughout the video.

“We wanted to play with powerful language and images. We designed the heart—we call it the Milagro in Mexican culture—and its light to be a metaphor for the healing throughout the story,” Verduzco told Vogue.

Selena Gomez fans are especially excited about this project because Gomez has long hinted at her desire to release a Spanish-language album.

Back in 2011, Gomez tweeted about her plans to eventually record an entire album in Spanish. “Can’t wait for y’all to hear the Spanish record;) it’s sounding so cool,” she wrote.

She retweeted the sentiment on Thursday with the comment: “I think it will be worth the wait”–which many fans took as confirmation that a full studio album is on its way.

It’s worth noting that Gomez has already dipped her toe into the Latin music scene with 2010’s “Un Año Sin Lluvia” and 2018’s DJ Snake, Ozuna and Cardi B collab, “Taki Taki”.

As for the difficulty of recording songs in a second language, Gomez said that it was a practice that came naturally.

“I actually think I sing better in Spanish. That was something I discovered,” she said in an interview for Apple Music. “It was a lot of work, and look, you cannot mispronounce anything. It is something that needed to be precise, and needed to be respected by the audience I’m going to release this for.”

She continued: “Of course I want everyone to enjoy the music, but I am targeting my fan base. I’m targeting my heritage, and I couldn’t be more excited.”

Selena Gomez Is Holding Tech And Social Media Accountable After Trump Mob Shuts Down Congress

A pro-Trump mob stormed Capitol Hill Jan. 6 following months of President Donald Trump and his allies attacking the 2020 elections. Selena Gomez, like most Americans horrified by the attack, spoke out on social media about what happened. She made it clear that part of this falls on tech companies and social media companies.

Selena Gomez called out social media and tech companies for enabling hateful rhetoric.

President Donald Trump and his supporters have used social media to spread misinformation since he was elected in 2016. Americans have watched as President Trump used Twitter to spread falsehoods and conspiracy theories. There have been so many debunked claims that President Trump and his allies have spread with no consequence.

Recently, Twitter started to flag some of President Trump’s tweets as disputed or misleading. It was the first time a social media platform did something that checked President Trump and his rhetoric.

People quickly came to Gomez’s side to uplift her statement.

President Trump has a long history of hateful and dangerous rhetoric on social media. He has misled her supporters with false statements and has incited violence. The president has defended white supremacists on multiple occasions and even retweeted a video of a man shouting white power.

Social media platforms are finally muzzling President Trump with bans and suspensions.

Twitter has put the president on a temporary suspension after he incited the crowd that breached Capitol Hill. Meanwhile, Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg enhanced the original 24-hour ban to a indefinite ban that will last at least until President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration. However, people think it is a little too late for these actions.

“Disinformation and extremism researchers have for years pointed to broader network-based exploitation of these platforms,” Sen. Mark R. Warner, D-Va., said in a statement. “As I have continually said, these platforms have served as core organizing infrastructure for violent, far right groups and militia movements for several years now – helping them to recruit, organize, coordinate and in many cases (particularly with respect to YouTube) generate profits from their violent, extremist content.”

What happened Jan. 6 at the nation’s Capitol was avoidable, but it’s clear who incited this violence.

Congress has officially certified President-elect Biden’s win. What should have been a quick process to certify an election turned into a horrifying scene. It is a day that will always define President Trump’s legacy.
