Selena Gomez's London interviews have come out, and in addition to giving Jason Derulo and all men tips on how to approach her, Gomez spoke more seriously about why Taylor Swift was so emotional hearing her Justin Bieber-inspired breakup songs, "Lose You to Love Me" and "Look at Her Now."
Swift and Swift's mother saw the entire nearly 1o-year saga and all the "abuse" and "emotional chaos" that Gomez endured throughout it.
Gomez recounted to KISS UK their initial reaction. "I was with her when I played her some of it," she started. "I’ll never forget when I did play the video for ‘Lose You to Love Me’ and ‘Look at Her Now’ at her house with her parents, and it was one of the coolest experiences because I’ve been friends with her for over a decade and love her family as well so I was like, 'Do you just maybe see the video?' and she’s like, 'Amazing, of course.' It was so hysterical. She just started turning off every single light off in the kitchen. And I was like, 'This is not that intense, Taylor.' And then she played it and her and her mom just started crying. Like, just tears and tears and all of a sudden, it stopped, and it’s going to make me cry thinking about it because it wasn’t about how great the song was—which is a lot, coming from her—it was just that they had been on that journey with me intimately, and 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. It felt like I had a huge sigh of relief and to see her and her mom feel that way, it was very sweet. It’s like an older sister and an aunt proud of their [friend]. It felt great to have people I love see it as that."
After a hiatus that left her loyal fans thirsting for music, she finally gave it to them and introduced the rest of the world to her two recent singles, “Lose You to Love Me” and “Look at Her Now.” It was very obvious to humans with ears that both songs were about her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber!
So that’s why when Selena decided to sing both songs live at the AMAs in November, everyone paid realllll close attention to how Selena was feeling that night...everyone including our body-language expert Blanca Cobb. Cobb gave us the rundown of what happened with Selena that night and provided us with some insider insight on what Selena’s movements in her performance meant. Grab a cup of tea, y’all!
If you look closely in the video, Selena begins to hold on to the microphone stand. While that doesn’t really seem like the biggest deal (she is a performer, after all), she did that small gesture as a way of emotionally stabilizing herself. “When you grab that microphone stand, it can be to steady yourself for support,” Cobb says. “Sure, it can be physical support, but I don’t think it was physical support for her. I think it was emotional support.”
Selena Gomez’s new single “Lose You To Love Me” from her upcoming album, Rare, is the pop singer’s first-ever number one hit. The album comes out in January 2020, and it sounds like it will be a very personal exploration of the hardships Gomez has dealt with over the past few years. Gomez explained in a recent radio interview that her very close friend Taylor Swift was one of the first people to hear the new song. Swift’s reaction to “Lose You to Love Me” will melt your heart.
Selena Gomez played her new song ‘Lose You to Love Me’ for her friend Taylor Swift and her parents Recently, Gomez said in an interview with KISS UK that sharing her new song “Lose You to Love Me” with Taylor Swift was an incredibly memorable experience.
“I was with her when I played her some of it,” Gomez explained. “I’ll never forget when I did play the video for ‘Lose You to Love Me’ and ‘Look at Her Now’ at her house with her parents.” Gomez explained that she has a close relationship with the Swift family.
The singer was vacationing in Honolulu a few days ago to ring in 2020, and while she was at the beach on Jan. 1 ... it appears she got zapped by a creature of the sea -- we're told it looked to be a Portuguese man o' war. It's a jellyfish-type of animal but is more than just a single organism. Bottom line ... they're poisonous and hurt like hell.
People seem to forget just how good a pop star Selena Gomez can be. Fair enough – the media coverage around her over the past few years has largely focused on her love life and her health struggles, overshadowing her career with tabloid headlines and gossip-mill rumours. But on her third album ‘Rare’, she’s serving up a reminder of her power – no famous exes required.
This new chapter feels like Gomez is trying to begin her emancipation from that whole narrative. Sure, she addresses break-ups and breakdowns in this new batch of songs, but she also moves the story on, coming at it from a position of power and peace. There’s barely any vulnerability here (except for, fittingly, on ‘Vulnerable’), whether in her lyrics or in her cool, confident delivery of them. ‘Look At Her Now’ – a minimalist pop gem – sets out her position clearly, at least from a romantic perspective: “Took a few years to soak up the tears / But look at her now.” Later, she adds a note to anyone thinking she might not be living life on her own terms: “She knows she’ll find love / Only if she wants it.” In other words, Gomez might have been through some shit in recent years, but she’s had her recovery time and now she’s ready to get back to business.
