A Gif By Gif Account of Selena Gomez’s Incredible ‘Bad Liar’ Film
The ‘Bad Liar’ popstar returns to her acting roots in her latest music video.
Selena Gomez is back with a brand new video.
Having teased a new visual on Instagram earlier this week, the ‘Same Old Love’ singer kept her promise.
Selena uploaded ‘Bad Liar’ onto YouTube early last night.
IT IS AMAZING.
The clip sees Selena return to her acting roots and play not one, not two, not three but four characters in a twisted love story.
We’re here to take you through it step by step.
1. Selena cycles in a cute 70s outfit
So far so normal. Selena mouths the lyrics to ‘Bad Liar’ on a bike.
2. Selena bumps into a couple at school
So it turns out that Selena is teenage Selena riding her bike to school. She is also preoccupied, so preoccupied that she clumsily walks into people. Why is she so preoccupied though? What has happened to her? What is on her mind?
3. Selena’s peers are giving her dirty looks
WHY ARE THE KIDS AT SCHOOL GIVING SELENA DIRTY LOOKS?
4. Selena is distracted in chemistry
Something is up. What is going on? What have you done Selena?
5. Selena is being waved at by a blonde bombshell and there is a moustache man
Who is this blonde bombshell? Who is this moustache man? So many questions.
6. Selena is the subject of gossip
Or are the blonde woman and the moustache man the subject of gossip? We're so confused.
7. Selena is teenage Selena, the blonde bombshell and the moustache man
Yes. That’s right. In the most amazing directorial decision in recent music video history, Selena isn’t just playing teenage Selena but blonde bombshell Selena and moustache man Selena. We still have no idea what is going on but this is exciting.
8. Moustache man Selena waves at teenage Selena and her classmates snigger
Drama. The drama is still pretty unclear at this point but there is definitely some sort of drama happening. How does teenage Selena know moustache man Selena? Are they having an illicit liaison that all the school know about? We need to find out.
9. Moustache man Selena and blonde bombshell Selena are flirting
Oh okay. Moustache man Selena and blonde bombshell Selena are the ones having the fling.
10. Teenage Selena is watching and blonde bombshell Selena sees her
Right. This has thrown us off a bit but we think that Selena fancies moustache man Selena or blonde bombshell Selena.
11. Teenage Selena flirts with blonde bombshell Selena in gym class
Yes - we’re finally getting somewhere. Teenage Selena definitely has a thing for blonde bombshell Selena. She’s playing basketball but her heart's not in it at all. Blonde bombshell Selena is making Teenage Selena grin like a fool in love.
12. Moustache man Selena is perving on blonde bombshell Selena
Somebody give Selena and Emmy for this please.
13. Moustache man Selena is picked up by a hot housewife
Omg. Moustache man Selena is married. And the hot housewife is Selena too. We can’t believe it. Four Selenas in one video.
14. Moustache man Selena and Hot Housewife Selena are in a loveless marriage
THE ACTING. This is too good. Golden Globe Award winner Selena Gomez has a nice ring to it - doesn’t it?
15. Hot housewife Selena and moustache man Selena are teenage Selena’s parents
Okay – come through with this development. All the awards for Selena Gomez.
16. Teenage Selena gets her life to real Selena’s song
Of course she does because ‘Bad Liar’ is a perfect pop song .
17. Teenage Selena pretends to be asleep to avoid hot housewife Selena.
We’ve all been there. Plus eagle eyed fans will notice that there is a poster of Taylor Swift behind Selena.
18. Teenage Selena does indeed fancy Blonde Bombshell Selena.
Wow. This is all so much to take in. We’re obsessed. So moustache man Selena and hot housewife Selena are being bad liars about the state of their relationship. Moustache man Selena and blonde bombshell Selena are having an affair that they’re being bad liars about. And teenage Selena is being a bad liar about her feelings for blonde bombshell Selena. This film. This is art.
19. Coming soon.
WAIT. WHAT IS THIS? WHAT IS GOING ON?
FETISH?! A FILM? AN ALBUM? A SONG? WE ARE NOT WORTHY.
Further research reveals that ‘Fetish’ is Selena’s next single and it is apparently completely different to ‘Bad Liar’.
So there we have it. An incredible ‘Bad Liar’ video and the prospect of ‘Fetish’. We are so blessed.
As Nicki Minaj raps in her 'Beauty and a Beat' verse – you ‘gotta keep an eye out for Selen-er’.
