Selena Gomez is a bit of an enigma to me, I must admit. I don’t really “get” her. She is trying to be taken seriously as some sexy adult pop star, but all I can see is a tiny child and Justin Bieber‘s ex-girlfriend, so I can never really get fully on board. It’s one reason why I can’t buy the bullshit of her new single, “Good For You”, which features A$AP Rocky and is trying so hard to be sexy, it kinda has the opposite effect and just makes me laugh really, really hard. Here, have a listen:
Premiering the song Elvis Duran’s Z100 morning show, Selena basically said she’s letting her music speak for her lately and express her innermost thoughts and feelings, because she has a “trust no bitch” mentality.
“If you’re going to sit here and talk about my life, I have a right to say what I want and obviously I’m going to do it the way I wish to. I don’t trust anyone. It’s something that I have to live with and I have to find the balance of who I want in my life and who isn’t good for me.”
“People are like, ‘We want you to be better!’ And everybody’s like ‘I want you to be better’ and everybody’s like ‘I want you to be healthy,’ ‘I want you to be happy,’ ‘I want you to be this.’ And then the moment you’re trying to find some sort of happiness, it’s so crazy. It’s not safe for anyone! You can’t talk about anything that you want to share with people because it’s going to be ripped apart, and that’s what makes me really sad.”
I don’t even know what to say. I’m sure she’s a nice girl and all, but sorry, I just can’t take her seriously.
