Selena Gomez Is Rumored To Be On Taylor Swift’s New Album And People Can’t Contain Their Excitement

Taylor Swift has been in musical hiding since releasing “1989” in 2014. That all changed on August 23 when the singer announced the release of her sixth studio album “Reputation,” with a single expected August 25 at 12:01 a.m. While everyone has been freaking out that Swift deleted all of her social media posts and is finally releasing new music, one rumor has piqued everyone’s interest. It is being rumored that Selena Gomez will make an appearance as Swift’s only collaboration on “Reputation.”

Taylor Swift has given us a release date for her next album “Reputation.”

After three years without new music, fans will finally get a brand new album to memorize and obsess over.

And while that is exciting news in its own right, many fans are screaming over a rumor started by gossip blogger Perez Hilton.

Hilton got everyone’s attention when he tweeted that he had insider knowledge on Swift’s single and followed it up with a rumor heard around the Twitterverse: Selena Gomez will be on the album.

The mere possibility of a Taylor Swift/Selena Gomez collab quickly spread throughout Twitter and people are here for it.

There is really no way to know whether or not Gomez will actually appear on the album until it is released but when has that stopped Twitter?

Without any verification, fans have let their emotions take over and started to think about the collab-to-be.

But, what is it going to sound like? Gomez and Swift have very different sounds when it comes to the music they create. Will Gomez conform to fit Swift’s voice for the song? Is Swift creating a new sound for her fans to love? There are soo many questions.

Some fans have no words to express their joy.

Sometimes some well placed tears is all it takes to show just how hyped you feel on the inside. Plus, “Taylor Swift ft. Selena Gomez” is probably one of the most powerful statements ever typed on Twitter.

Some fans are going so far as to call it the “biggest duet in the history of duets.”

That’s a powerful statement.

And people stepped up to offer other duets that shook the world, like Beyoncé and Shakira.

All of the songs featuring Beyoncé and Shakira should be on everyone’s playlists, tbh.

Like, how could you forget the Britney Spears ft. Madonna track that literally stopped time?

However, fans are overwhelmingly in support of this possible duet.

We might find out as soon as August 25.

Yes, Beyoncé Really Did Run Into Selena Quintanilla At A Mall Back In The Day

Part 2 of Netflix’s “Selena: The Series,” is currently streaming, which means fans of the late Tejano singer are getting a chance to learn more about her origin stories. In the second part of the series, fans can expect to see more of the icon’s tragically brief but beautifully successful life. The new episodes chronicle Selena Quintanilla’s rise as a superstar and will no doubt make fans of the singer feel a deep sense of love for her.

Particularly when it comes to one episode in particular!

Part 2’s episode 6, called “Lo Más Bello,” sees the lives of two superstars collide.

The endearing episode sees Selena, played by Christian Serratos, on a shopping trip to an outdoor mall with her mother and sister. It’s then that the young singer catches the eye of a young girl who is also with her mother and sister.

Perhaps it’s real seeing real, but in either case in this episode, the young girl stops to gaze at Selena. She’s star-struck. In the episode, the young girl’s mother asks who she’s looking at and the girl replies, “Selena, a famous singer. Be quiet!”

Knowing that her daughter is a singer herself, the mother encourages her to introduce herself. Of course, the young girl is too shy to say hello but she does wave.

When Selena walks away, the young girl’s mother reveals a fun twist when she says “Beyoncé Knowles, you better learn not to be afraid of people if you ever want to be famous too.”

Like we said…

Real recognizing real.

While it might seem like the producers took creative liberty, it turns out they actually didn’t. And it makes sense. Fans of Selena and Beyoncé know that the two singers are Texan-icons.

In a recent interview for MTV Trés, Beyoncé revealed that she actually did see Selena, in the Galleria Mall in Houston. “I didn’t say much to Selena because I wasn’t a celebrity,” Beyoncé said in an interview for MTV Trés back in the day. “I just saw her and said hello and kept it moving. Definitely growing up in Texas I heard her on the radio, and I think listening to her album, even though I didn’t know exactly what she was saying, it helped me in the studio with my pronunciation.”

Fans of the Texan starlets might also remember how Beyonce, in a 2007 interview with People en Español, spoke about her love of Selena.

At the time, Beyoncée was celebrating her re-release of six Spanish-language tracks. “I listened to Selena all the time” she recalled at the time of the interview. “She’s close to me because of where I’m from.”

Both “Selena: The Series” Parts 1 and 2 are streaming right now on Netflix! Check them out!

Selena Gomez Launches ‘Mental Health 101’ Campaign, Wants Schools To Provide Mental Health Services To Students

On Thursday, Selena Gomez took to her Instagram page to reveal a new project she’s working on. And while Selena has been busy working on her Spanish-language album and makeup brand this year, this project is a little bit different. This project will be focused on a cause near and dear to Selena Gomez’s heart: mental health.

Along with Rare Beauty, Selena Gomez is launching a mental health initiative in Mental Health Awareness month to get more schools to provide mental health services to their students.

The initiative is called Mental Health 101. The campaign is meant to spark conversation with the question: What if mental health education was taught in school?”

Gomez posted a powerful short essay to her Instagram feed about how important mental health services have been to her. It read:

Today, I’m so grateful that we get to launch Mental Health 101. This campaign is so close to my heart because of my own struggles with mental health. I know first hand how scary and lonely it can feel to face anxiety and depression by yourself at a young age. If I had learned about my mental health earlier on – been taught about my condition in school the way I was taught about other subjects – my journey could have looked very different.

The world needs to know that mental health matters. It’s just as important as your physical health, and I wish we could acknowledged that, not just in words but through our actions.

For anyone who is hurting right now, I hope you know that you are not alone. I’m a believer in seeking help. Getting support and educating myself on mental health has changed my life, and it can change yours, too.

Gomez asked her followers to join her mental health initiative by doing three things: signing her change.org petition, donating to the Rare Impact fund, and spreading her message via social media.

Gomez’s Rare Impact fund has the goal of raising $100 million over the next 10 years to help connect people in underserved communities with mental health care. The fund will also be matching donations up to $200,000. You can donate here.

On the change.org petition, Selena Gomez wrote that it is “absolutely essential to offer mental health services in schools, and for the philanthropy community to prioritize this issue.”

The goal of Gomez’s change.org petition is to raise awareness amongst the philanthropy community about how important this issue is for you people.

She also wasn’t afraid to get candid. “Mental Health is personal for me,” she wrote. “Figuring out how to manage my own mental health hasn’t always been easy, but it’s something I am constantly working on. I hope I can help others work on it, too. I wish more people talked about mental health when I was younger, so I could have learned and understood what was going on with my own health earlier on.”
