Taylor Swift And Her Mom Cried When They Heard Selena’s New Music Because Of The “Abuse” And “Emotional Chaos” She Experienced
It was definitely an emotional return to music for Selena Gomez. With all the rumors surrounding her hit comeback single ‘Lose You to Love Me,’ the alleged beef with Hailey Bieber and a controversial performance at the AMA’s Sel has definitely had a rough time. In a recent interview, she said that Taylor Swift and her mom cried when they heard her new music because of how proud they were of how she pulled through all “the abuse” that she experienced.
Taylor Swift And Her Mom Cried When They Heard Selena’s New Music Because Of The “Abuse” She’s Experienced.
In a recent interview, Selena said: “They were crying because of how proud they were for me stepping into a whole new era of my life and it not involving the horrible things — the abuse, the emotional chaos.”
Selena returned to the music scene just a few months ago.
Although Selena Gomez has remained a steady presence in pop music throughout the 2010s, this year marked four years since her last proper full-length, 2015’s Revival. This October, Gomez returned with a new song, “Lose You to Love Me,” on a Wednesday (Oct. 23) —and after giving listeners 24 hours to digest the gently sweeping ballad, she surprised us with another new track, the more uptempo “Look at Me Now,” on Thursday.
It’s been an emotional return to music for her.
Gomez has said that these two singles are some of her most personal songs to date after taking time away from the spotlight.
The personal ballad has been rumored to be about ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber.
‘Lose You To Love Me’ ended up hitting the top spot on Billboard’s Hot 100, becoming her first song to do so. “The song is about letting go of things that hold you back in order to find your self-worth —that inner love for yourself— again,” explained Julia Michaels, who co-wrote both “Lose You to Love Me” and “Look at Her Now.”
The following day, Selena switched things up and released an empowering single.
The up-tempo song called “Look at Her Now“, was released the next day, and again, was thought to be about Justin. “One is talking about needing to let go of something in order to find power, and the next one is owning that power. I think that’s the main reason why they work so well together,” Michaels told Billboard.
When Selena performed the two songs at the AMAs her BFF was there to support.
In November, when she performed both songs for the first time at the American Music Awards, her best friend Taylor Swift was in the audience supporting her every step of the way.
Taylor’s been Selena’s rock behind the scenes, too.
In fact, Selena said that when she played the new music for Taylor and her mom before its release, they all cried because of the journey she’d been on to get to that place.
“It’s gonna make me cry thinking about it.”
“I’ll never forget when I did play the video for ‘Lose You To Love Me’ and ‘Look At Her Now’ at [Taylor’s] house with her parents,” Selena told Kiss FM UK. “Her and her mom just started crying.” “It wasn’t just about how great the song was —which is a lot coming from her—“ she continued, “it was just that they had been on that journey with me intimately.”
Taylor and her mom know the “emotional chaos” that she’s been through.
Selena went as far as to say that Taylor and her mom cried when they heard the new music because they knew of the “abuse” and “emotional chaos” she’d experienced in the past.
Selena hasn’t explained what she means by “abuse and emotional chaos.”
“They were crying because of how proud they were for me stepping into a whole new era of my life and it not involving the horrible things — the abuse, the emotional chaos,” Selena said. And even though she didn’t expand on what she meant by “abuse and emotional chaos”, she did give a little more detail about why Taylor and her mom got emotional in a previous interview.
They were simply happy that she’s overcome her disease and mental health problems.
“It wasn’t because the song was emotional,” Selena told Beats 1 radio host Zane Lowe. “It was just because the first thing they said to me was, ‘We’re so happy that you’re here. After seeing all of that, this is such a cool moment.’ And that’s a huge thing for me.”
Selena has never mentioned Justin Bieber.
Although Selena has been careful to avoid saying names, Justin Bieber has also spoken about how he “abused” a relationship he was in at 19 years old. In a post on social media earlier this year, Justin said: “I started doing pretty heavy drugs at 19 and abused all of my relationships. I became resentful, disrespectful to women, and angry. I became distant to everyone who loved me, and I was hiding behind a shell of a person that I had become.”
