Selena Gomez chats with Blackpink about their upcoming single “Ice Cream,” BTS’ “Dynamite” is already breaking records on the Billboard Charts, two previously announced acts will not perform at the 2020 Video Music Awards and more in today’s top stories.
On Wednesday (Aug 26), YG Entertainment unveiled the latest "Ice Cream" teaser poster featuring Selena Gomez.
In the graphic, the pop star smiles wide in a midriff-bearing candy-striped pair of separates. She paired the retro look with a sailor hat, white gloves, chunky gold hoops and wind-tousled hair. The poster also reminds fans of the single's scheduled release date, which is scheduled to drop Friday (Aug. 28) at midnight EST/1:00 p.m. KST.
Gomez's adorable poster is just the latest in the series promoting her upcoming collaboration with Blackpink, following individual shots of Jisoo, Rosé, Jennie and Lisa. In their respective teasers, the members of the K-pop girl group wear similarly vintage fashion, rocking their own '70s-inspired looks filled with with lots of lots of bright colors, flower power and macrame.
If you're one of the 189 million people who follow Selena Gomez on Instagram, then you know that the singer tends to shy away from bikini pictures, but she's just gone and made a glorious exception.
To celebrate her upcoming collaboration with K-pop group Blackpink, Selena shared a sailor-inspired snap wearing a red and white stripe bikini, white gloves and a nautical-feel hat. It might not be our go-to beach look - what with the flawless makeup and long, mermaid-level (somehow untangled) hair - but Selena pulls it off effortlessly. I'm calling it now: this is going to be a popular Halloween 2020 costume.
Captioning the image with three ice cream emojis - because the new song is, as you might've guessed, called 'ICE CREAM' - Sel's giving us major pin-up girl type vibes with her look, finished with a swipe of bright red lip.
Can we also take a second to talk about how chic those bikini straps are, finished with a bow? They might not stand up to major wave action (we've all been there), but Sel doesn't look like she's about to jump into the sea anytime soon, so reckon we're all good on that front.
Blackpink in Selena Gomez’s area! The K-pop group have officially dropped its hotly anticipated collaboration with the singer-actor-chef, “Ice Cream,” along with a music video. Both the song and video are delicious bubblegum pop, and feature Selena and Blackpink sporting tennis rackets, serving ice cream (duh), and playing with a golden retriever.
It’s the second single off Blackpink’s upcoming Korean-language debut Blackpink: The Album, following “How You Like That.” The album, out October 2, contains over 10 tracks total, according to label YG Entertainment, and that’s about all we know for now. As collabs go, Blackpink’s meetup with Gomez follows the group’s feature on Lady Gaga’s song “Sour Candy,” along with their Dua Lipa collab “Kiss and Make Up,” which also makes a reappearance on Lipa’s remix album Club Future Nostalgia today after originally coming out in 2018. Do your record-breaking thing, Blinks.
Serving up a series of retro-inspired looks referencing 1950s pin-ups and 1970s flower power -- think high-waisted beachwear and macramé outfits -- the three-minute-long video boasts all the glossy visuals we've come to expect from both Blackpink and Gomez.
In the opening scene, the American star pairs a striped bikini with a sailor hat, white gloves, chunky gold hoops and wind-tousled hair, as she drives up to meet the K-pop group in an old-school ice cream truck. Lisa, Jisoo, Rosé and Jennie -- who are known for their maximalist fashion -- then appear with chunky gold necklaces, a Dior newsboy cap, pink hair and cherry-shaped earrings. The message is clear from the start: Bold outfits and highly curated embellishments are the order of the day.
In keeping with each member's signature image (cutesy Jennie; feminine Jisoo; street style queen, Rosé; and rapper with attitude, Lisa), the singers transition from feathered skirts and OTT tops to outfits that wouldn't look out of place in teen movie "Clueless," complete with pink headbands and plaid coordinates.
