Selena Gomez Claps Back At Hailey Bieber Gagging At Taylor Swift
Selena Gomez is standing up for her good friend Taylor Swift after a video resurfaced of Hailey Bieber pretending to gag at the mention of the “Cardigan” singer’s name.
It happened on Thursday (February 23) when Gomez, 30, left a comment under a TikTok calling Hailey a “mean girl” and showing a clip from what looks to be Drop the Mic, the model’s former celebrity rap battle show with Method Man. In the video, Method Man describes a rap battle as having “some of the meanest lyrics about a celebrity since Taylor Swift’s last album.” In response, Hailey, 26, points a finger at her mouth and pretends to gag with her eyes rolled back, before shrugging as the audience laughs.
“So sorry, my best friend is and continues to be one of the best in the game,” Gomez commented on the video. One person commented on the TikTok: “THIS is the real Hailey!” While another person said of Hailey, “she can’t stand talented successful women.” Another person commented, “what is she even known for like fr [crying face emoji] isn’t she just justin’s wife and kylie’s friend like??” Before commenting in defense of Swift, Gomez wrote “I love you” in response to a video calling Kylie and Hailey “nepo babies” who were acting like “mean girls.”
The Only Murders in the Building star’s response comes hours after Hailey and Kylie Jenner were accused on social media of making fun of Selena’s eyebrows on Instagram. The Kylie Cosmetics founder addressed the accusations by commenting on a TikTok, “this is reaching. no shade towards selena ever and i didn’t see her eyebrow posts! u guys are making something out of nothing. this is silly.” Fans didn’t believe her, as many people commented things like, “Kylie and Hailey are giving high school vibes,” “Mean girls,” and Haters!!! Selena Gomez is way above them !!” Gomez replied to Kylie’s comment: “Agreed @kyliejenner It’s all unnecessary. I’m a fan of Kylie!”
Despite all the high school drama between the three women, Selena seems unfazed enough, posting a hilarious TikTok yesterday about her love life.
