Selena Gomez has demonstrated her backing for her "best friend" Taylor Swift, following the emergence of a revived video where Hailey Bieber made some significant derogatory comments about her.
Take a look at the video, along with a snippet of Selena's response, below:
So, there are a few things to unpack here, but essentially it appears that Selena was displeased with a segment from Bieber's former rap battle show "Drop the Mic," where she was shown feigning gagging at the mere mention of Taylor Swift's name.
After the TikTok started to gain traction once again, Selena left a comment below, referring to Bieber as a "mean girl."
Within the brief clip, Bieber's co-host Method Man, known for his affiliation with Wu-Tang Clan, remarked that one of the rap battles featured on the show had "the most vicious lyrics about a celebrity since Taylor Swift's previous album."
Yet, the moment Swift's name was brought up, Bieber placed her finger into her mouth and pantomimed a gagging gesture.
She disregarded it at the moment, and though it was a minor incident, the internet is quick to observe everything.
It's worth reiterating that the internet observes everything.
However, the genuine drama took place in the comments section below that video.
A comment was posted by Gomez that read: "So sorry, my best friend is and continues to be one of the best in the game."
This occurred not long after Hailey and Kylie Jenner were charged with ridiculing Selena's eyebrows on Instagram.
Subsequently, the beauty entrepreneur promptly refuted the allegations of derision, asserting that they were "foolish."
She added: "No shade towards Selena ever. I didn't see her eyebrow posts! U [sic] guys are making something out of nothing. This is silly."
Truly, it is.
However, perhaps not for the rationale she intends.
Nonetheless, let us endure this together, shall we?
Following that incident, Selena resolved to clarify matters correctly, concurring with Kylie's remarks and stating that the rumors were "all unnecessary," concluding: "I'm a fan of Kylie!"
Having said that, Gomez returned to her Instagram, where she recently became the most tracked woman on the entire platform.
This indicates that she can earn a significant income from her sponsored posts, earning over $1.7 million for each one.
It's a pretty good gig if you can land it.
I suppose to obtain such work, you must be capable of showcasing a product to 381 million individuals on one of the world's most prominent social media platforms.
So, we're back to square one… There must be simpler methods to earn a million dollars.
