Selena Gomez Actually Defends Hailey Baldwin, Tells Fans to "Be Kind"

by at .  Updated at .

Selena Gomez knows what everyone is talking about right now.

And it's not what she hoped they'd be talking about after she released her first new single in four years.

Earlier this week, you see, Gomez delighted fans with the dropping of "Lose You to Love Me."

It's a powerful ballad... that is rather transparently about Justin Bieber and her romantic history with the artist.

Just consider this lyric from the track:

I gave my all and they all know it/You tore me down and now it's showing.

In two months you replaced us/Like it was easy/Made me think I deserved it/In the thick of healing.

Those who followed the journey of "Jelena" know well that Bieber and Gomez split up for good in 2018 -- and it didn't take very long from there for Bieber to start dating Hailey Baldwin.

Nor did it even take very long after that for Baldwin and Bieber to get married in a civil ceremony last summer.


Not long after Selena unveiled this single, reaction poured in from the Internet.

Many observers even took note of what Baldwin posted to her Instagram Story, which was a reference to the song "I'll Kill You" by Summer Walker.

Was Hailey hurling shade at Selena for singing about her husband?

Was she even threatening to murder Gomez for it?!?

Such questions became so prevalent online that Hailey was forced to issue a statement in response.

"Please stop with this nonsense," she told Just Jared on Wednesday. "There is no 'response.' This is complete BS."

That's a pretty strong denial, we must say. We believe Hailey on this one.


And it appears as if Gomez does as well.

She actually just released a snippet of a more upbeat song titled "Look at Her Now," writing on Instagram along with it:

"And here's my special gift to all of my ride or dies! I created this with Apple especially for you.

"Y'all have been through it all with me and I thank you for pushing me to be the best. Look At Her Now is out now."

The pop star also hosted an Instagram Live, where she thanked her fans for supporting her during this new journey... and then seemed to address this while Baldwin hullabaloo.

"I am so grateful for the response of the song. However, I will never stand for women tearing other women down," the singer said during this session.

She added: "So please be kind to everyone."


Amen, right?

Concluded Gomez on this subject:

"Please be kind, I don't like seeing people being disrespectful or rude to other people, so please don't do that."

Truth be told, we could all learn a lot from how Selena has handled things here.

There have been unconfirmed rumors of her still being in touch with Bieber and, hey, maybe they really are pals.

For the most part, however, she has managed to remain quiet while Bieber and Baldwin earn headline after headline for their marriage,  taking the high road at every opportunity and channeling her feelings into her art.

That's how this is supposed to work, right?

Well done, Selena!
