If one thing is for sure, it is the fact that everyone wants to know what Selena Gomez is up to. The fans, the haters, the Jelena shippers, and the people who have just genuinely followed her kidney transplant story. Whatever the reason may be, millions of people are fascinated by the "Wolves" singer at the moment, so when she chatted with Billboard and seemingly dropped major bombshells, all heads turned. Her most recent ex, The Weeknd, was mentioned and the topic of Justin Bieber wiggled his way in there too. But Sel actually posted a cryptic message on her Instagram story over the words at beginning of the article, where it mentioned a five-foot stuffed teddy bear lying on her kitchen floor.
The part of the story she referred to read, "There’s a five-foot teddy bear sprawled across the kitchen floor in Selena Gomez’s North Hollywood home. 'I know, I know,' says Gomez, rolling her eyes, acknowledging that the stuffed animal doesn't quite blend with the trio of armchairs nestled in the inviting, marble-accented nook. 'It was a gift, and at first I thought, "This is so ridiculous, I can’t wait until I give it away to another person."'”
Selena put words in red over the article, saying, "Never will I let another human guess my words again. Or invite them in my home. That is so hurtful. The most 'ridiculous' part of that is no one knowing my heart when I say things." Yikes...so clearly, she is referring to her wording of "ridiculous" in the story. And she's not happy, to say the least.
Selena made her Instagram completely private. Just 24 hours after doing that, she went back to being a public page. Why she did this, we'll never know. Did her management make her shut things down? Did she want to get away from it all for a couple of hours? Seriously, we need some answers here. But, just in case this story didn't have enough layers as it is, we've found another one. Last year, Justin deleted his whole account for months after fans threw major shade at his then-girlfriend, Sofia Richie. Not to mention, Selena was also someone who commented on his behavior with Sofia. But, it looks like she may now finally realize where he was coming from. Of course, she didn't delete her entire page, but making it private it is enough of a statement in and of itself. Could she have been taking some notes of her own during Justin's Instagram silence? Sure looks like it!
There are a few reasons she may have been upset about the quote used in Billboard's article. For starters, she may not have known that part of the conversation was 'on record.' Meaning, she didn't realize that anything at any point, from the time the reporter stepped in her front door to the time they left, could have been used. Another reason why she may have been upset could be because the person who gave Selena this bear is someone special to her, and now her true feeling of wanting to give it away may upset them. Of course, the easiest person to think of is Justin. But we're also thinking about her family. Maybe her little sister gave this to her. Or her mom. Or maybe even her best friend Francia Raisa. Now, they are reading that she hates the gift, which is probably not a good look and probably something she did not want to be printed.
But that's not even the most confusing part. Selena also posted a photo on her actual Instagram feed of her Billboard cover shoot with a caption that thanked them endlessly and praised their Women in Music event where she was given her award for Woman of the Year. So, yes, everyone is confused AF. Her caption read, "Thank you beyond for your acknowledgment and honor @billboard but honestly thank you more for the event you held for women. That night was so inspiring and every woman spoke eloquently and with such force. I’ll try to continue to give my best to even remotely live up to a title. In the mean time I hope we all continue to give our best when the world wants to give us the worst. We aren’t stopping the fight."
Hmmm...Selena has yet to address her Instagram story message and we have a feeling she's not going to. This isn't the first time she has made a questionable post on the 'gram lately either. Just yesterday, she posted a selfie video on her Instagram story with the words written on her face that read, "I need some alone time." Again, there was no rhyme or reason for it.
Aside from that, she was clearly hurt by the Billboard story and, when that happens, she doesn't usually speak on a public platform to voice her feelings straightforwardly. She just changes her mindset. So, if you thought you'd get the chance to interview Selena inside her home at any point in the near future, think again. It's probably not going to happen.
