‘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.

While the United States is as of publication, has vaccinated over 75 million people against COVID-19 since mid-December, the rest of the world is still catching up. Poorer countries, for example, are struggling to procure enough vaccines for essential workers–let alone their entire population.

Luckily, certain charitable business are making it their mission to get vaccines to the most needy. For example, anti-poverty organization Global Citizen has organized a charity concert with the aim of getting COVID-19 vaccines to developing countries.

Selena Gomez will be hosting the concert, called “VAX Live: The Concert to Reunite the World”. And none other than Jennifer Lopez will be headlining.

Selena Gomez took to Twitter to announce her involvement in the exciting project. “I’m honored to be hosting ‘VAX LIVE: The Concert to Reunite the World,’ ” she wrote.

“This is a historic moment to encourage people around the world to take the COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available to them, call on world leaders to share vaccine doses equitably and to bring people together for a night of music in a way that hasn’t felt possible in the past year. I can’t wait to be a part of it.”

Jennifer Lopez also took to Twitter to announce her involvement with VAX Live, saying that she is “calling for equitable COVID-19 vaccine distribution for all”. That’s a statement we can get behind!

Jennifer Lopez isn’t the only superstar performing. Other acts will include J Balvin, H.E.R., and the Foo Fighters.

Global Citizen has one goal: to raise $22 billion for global vaccinations via corporate and philanthropic donors. They’re hoping VAX Live will bring awareness to their efforts.

“There are 27 million healthcare workers globally who don’t have access to the vaccine,” said Global Citizen CEO Hugh Evans to the Associated Press. “I’m 38 years old, and it’s not ethical for me to have access to the vaccine before these heroic first responders and community health workers. So we need governments to start urgently donating those doses.”

Tom Hart, the executive director for another anti-poverty organization, The ONE Campaign, also reiterated the importance of getting vaccine doses into the hands of developing countries.

“Low-income countries not only need this welcome fundraising effort; they need access to COVID-19 vaccine doses,” Tom Hart said.

“The United States has secured over 550 million excess doses that could be used to help end the global pandemic faster.”

You can catch VAX LIVE on ABC, CBS, and iHeartMedia stations on 8:00 p.m. ET on May 8th. It will also be airing on Fox starting at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT the same day. You’ll also be able to catch an extended version on Global Citizen’s YouTube channel on May 8th as well.

Chris Pérez and Joe Ojeda Have Mini Los Dinos Reunion With Empowering Corrido “Nuestra Tierra”

Chris Pérez, the widower of Selena, is back with his first taste of new music in over a decade. The Mexican-American musician regroups with his old Los Dinos bandmate Joe Ojeda for the new single “Nuestra Tierra.” The song also features Victoria La Mala and Yorch.

“Nuestra Tierra” is a song that reflects on the Mexican immigrant experience.

Chris Pérez’s last musical project was with Kumbia All-Starz. They teamed up for the song “La Vida De Un Genio” in 2010. He returns to the music scene in “Nuestra Tierra.” The corrido reflects on the life of a Mexican immigrant moving to the US in search of the American Dream.

“I love this song because it truly reflects the times that we’re living in as immigrants in this country,” Victoria La Mala said in a statement. “We come here looking for a better life, but we sacrifice and leave so much behind. It was so incredible to have the opportunity to work with people that I’ve admired and looked up to for years like Chris and Joe. Yorch is also super talented and like me and so many people, moved to this country looking to follow our dreams and search for more opportunities.”

“Nuestra Tierra” is filled with Mexican talent like Victoria La Mala and Yorch.

Pérez played the guitar on the empowering “Nuestra Tierra” while Ojeda and Roberto “Bobbo” Gómez handled the production duties. Victoria La Mala and Yorch trade verses about the struggle Mexican immigrants face while trying to find a better life in the U.S.

“Bobbo, Joe, and myself came up with the chord structure, the arrangement basically,” Pérez said. “Jorge Eduardo [Yorch] and Victoria were doing their thing, scribbling away like crazy on their notepads. I wasn’t quite sure what they were coming up with but the second I heard them singing their part, well, it was like magic. And to be a part of something like that is a rarity these days, so I am truly proud of the song.”

The song also marks a reunion between two old Los Dinos bandmates.

“Nuestra Tierra” also marks a mini-reunion between two of Selena’s Los Dino band members, Chris Pérez and Ojeda. The two say this song was created “on the fly” during downtime in the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The song’s power and message moved us all,” Ojeda said. “This song really focuses on us, los Mexicanos, los Paisanos, especially La Raza that is still living ‘on the other side’ and simply wanting a better life for their families. And isn’t that what we all want? My hope for this song is that it resonates with a lot of people and that everyone understands its message.”
