Selena Gomez posts had a crazy week with the sudden spotlight on her. After releasing two back-to-back singles, Lose You To Love Me and Look At Her Now. Both tracks have been majorly praising. And are already on everyone’s playlist.
The 27-year-old singer got a major seal of approval from bestie. Taylor Swift, who could not get enough of Selena’s new music. However, T-Swift fans were in for a major shock when Gomez did the unthinkable. And promote Kim Kardashian‘s shapewear brand SKIMS on her Instagram Stories.
We all know about the ‘famous’ feud between Swift and Kim Kardashian-Kanye West, which kickstarted in 2016. Given the rivalry, Swifties were appalled to know that. Selena would compliment Kim for her brand calling it. “Legit so freaking comfortable. @skims” Gomez quick to react by not only deleting says post about Kim K.
But also share another Instagram Story dedicate to her “ride or die” Taylor Swift. In the photo shared by the singer, the besties pose for an adorable selfie along with Taylor’s cat.
Check out Selena’s IG Stories below:
On Selena Gomez posts wrote, “My ride or die, I would die for this one. Thank you for forever being by my side. You have taught me so much, walked through all of this with me. STAYED and you remind me to be a better human being. I’m on your side for life.”
Squad goals for life, indeed!
Meanwhile, in her interview on New Music Daily. So Selena got candid about how Taylor cried when she was first made to hear Lose You To Love Me. “I played her the song, and I played it with her mom and dad. And I showed her the video and her mom and Taylor started crying,” Gomez reveals.
Selena Gomez can’t catch a break. On Wednesday, Oct. 23, when Selena finally drop a new single—following a 4-year hiatus from her last album. So people quickly began speculating that Hailey Bieber was throwing shade at her husband Justin Bieber‘s ex.
Where would they get this idea from, you ask? Shortly after the release of Selena’s new track, “Lose You to Love Me,”. So Hailey posts a song she was listening to on her Instagram Story. The song in question was “I’ll Kill You” by Summer Walker and well, people quickly began forming their own theories. And thoughts on what that could possibly mean.
Soon thereafter, Selena also took to social media to address the alleged “shade” telling her fans. So that she will never stand for “women tearing other women down”. And urged for her fans to “please be kind to everyone.”
Now, the “Look At Her Now” is catching flak from Taylor Swift fans. So after Selena Gomez posts mirror selfie on her Instagram Story of herself modelling Kim Kardashian’s new shapewear SKIMS. “Legit, so freaking comfortable,” Selena wrote on her selfie, tagging the SKIMS brand.
In case you forgot, Taylor and the KUWTK star and her husband Kanye West don’t have the most amicable track record. (however, earlier this year, Kim seemingly move on from the drama). Consequently, Taylor fans took to social media to share their criticism.
But after the alleged harassment from Taylor fans. So Selena deletes the photo of herself wearing SKIMS. So then took it down hours later—right around the time she posts an Instagram shout out to her good friend Taylor Swift. It’s coincidental timing, at the very least, as Pop Crave point out on Twitter.

And then post a selfie of herself with the “You Need to Calm Down” singer.
“My ride or die, I would die for this one,” Selena wrote alongside a selfie of she and Taylor. “Thank you for forever being by my side. You have taught me so much, walk through all of this with me. STAYED and you remind me to be a better human being. I’m on your side for life.”
It looks like Selena definitely read the backlash she was getting. But need to make it clear that her post didn’t mean she didn’t have her BFF’s back.
In a recent interview with Zane Lowe for his Apple Music Beats 1 show, “New Music Daily,”. Taylor gushes about her longtime gal pal.
“I’m so proud of her. She’s been through so much. I’ve watched so much happen in her life,”. Taylor told Lowe of Gomez. “She is such a revelation because now she’s making her best stuff”.
In a separate interview with Lowe, Selena heard audio of Taylor‘s comments about her and became emotional.
“[Taylor has been an] amazing [friend]. For sure. She frustrate when I was frustrated. She was sad when I was sad. But more than anything, my friends stood by my side. I think they visibly saw me in so much pain. And they didn’t want it for me. But they,” Selena says, with tears. “They never stopped loving me. And I played her the song, and I played it with her mom and dad. And I showed her the video and her mom and Taylor started crying.”
