Billboard is going for broke in its quest to pander to Selena Gomez and her fans. The publication recently revealed its year-end ranking of the year’s best songs and one of Selena’s sleeper hits topped the list ahead of Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” and the Justin Bieber-assisted “Despacito” from Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee.

Selena Gomez’s music video for “Bad Liar” was an ambitious film project. Starring Selena in four different roles, the visual followed a story of love, lust and infidelity in a small town, high school setting. But the video’s drop had some people confused about what exactly was going on. Without any dialogue to offer up exposition, fans and journalists had to piece together the video’s narrative by guessing at the relationships between the characters.
A new clip shines a light on these characters and confirms some fan theories about who is who and what everyone is up to in the video. A brief credit sequence showing Selena in all four of her roles reveals that she was in fact playing Corrinda Leon, the daughter of a couple struggling as the husband/father Robbie Leon is flirtatious at work with a blonde bombshell.
Selena Gomez dropped the extended music video for single “Bad Liar” on Wednesday. And Selenators were quick to notice that snake queen Taylor Swift made a cameo in it. While the singer isn’t acting alongside one of the many characters played by Selena, she does show up around the end of the visual as one of Charlie’s Angels.
Selena may play a Farrah Fawcett-lookalike in the video, but it’s Taylor who’s front and center on the TV series poster that once starred Farrah in the late ’70s.

Selena Gomez is putting her acting chops to the test in the film for “Bad Liar.” The singer plays a high school character obsessing over a Farrah Fawcett lookalike who is shamelessly flirting with an older male version of Selena who turns out to be high school Selena’s dad. The visual features is a more narrative plot compared to the singer’s Spotify video that featured Selena singing in bed.
At the end of the film, Selena announces what will be her next single and possibly the continuation of the “Bad Liar” visual called “Fetish.”

Selena Gomez is ready to drop a bomb. The singer teased a new video project for her song “Bad Liar” in a series of Instagram posts. Keeping with her style of social media blasts, Selena revealed a poster for a film version of her Talking Heads-inspired single.
Selena’s name appears four times on the new poster–once for her song and three more times apparently as the film’s cast. It sounds like three different Selenas could pop up in the film adaptation.
Selenators from all over the world lost their minds about the news on Twitter, where Selena also shared the poster.

Selena Gomez recently chatted with MTV News to talk about her single “Bad Liar” and the video that was released via Spotify. Selena claims the track signals the shift she’s plotting to make in her sound. “I just want it to be simple and beautiful and I want music to sound refreshing,” she says. “To me, that’s what I want to hear on the radio. I feel like that’s where my approach has been.”
The video features the singer in a bed wearing a bracelet and her wrists tied together in a white ribbon. She shares that the video was shot after she’d gotten back from her Lupus treatment. Petra Collins, the woman who took the pictures and directed the video, wanted to shoot Selena after the treatment because she looked like she was “in this really sweet place.” Selena noted that that sentiment mirrored what the song represents to her.
