After releasing her new single, “Bad Liar,” at the end of May, Selena Gomez has debuted a highly anticipated music video, helmed by former Girls director Jesse Peretz.
You haven’t seen Selena Gomez like this before.
The 24-year-old superstar plays four parts in the video for Bad Liar – and one of them, a student, is clearly attracted to her gym teacher – also played by Gomez.
Throughout the 1970s-themed video, she smiles at and pines after the teacher, who it seems is having an affair with Gomez’s married father, also played by the singer.
After coming home and turning away from her mother, who – you got it – is also played by Gomez, she goes upstairs to think about her lesbian crush.
Earlier this month, Gomez opened up about her mum surprising her with “the most beautiful drag queen singing my favourite song” at her 16th birthday party. In the letter for Billboard, the Good For You singer described how she grew up around LGBT people, crediting her mum “for raising me in an environment that was incredibly open-minded and non-judgmental.”
And she also credited songwriting partner Justin Tranter with opening her eyes to the LGBTQ rights movement, after she watched Madonna documentary Truth or Dare.
Gomez said: “I loved it and was especially struck by how groundbreaking it was for the gay rights movement and how far LGBTQ rights have come in my lifetime.”
