Selena Gomez ‘never approached’ to co-star with ex Justin Bieber in Popstar video – Daily Mail

Selena Gomez never got a request to co-star with her ex Justin Bieber in the Popstar music video, contrary to a recent claim.

Justin was a major presence in the video for Drake and DJ Khaled’s song, even miming a lyric about Selena.

However an insider in Selena’s camp told People the 28-year-old songbird ‘was never approached and had no plans to participate in the music video.’

This source’s statement flies in the face of Imperium Group CEO Shazir Mucklai who claimed to Globe Newswire to have urged Selena to feature in the video.

Selena’s latest People source has also denied Shazir’s allegation that he has a role in her Rare Beauty brand with Sephora.

Meanwhile Justin fired up his Instagram page this Saturday to treat his fans to some behind-the-scenes photos from the music video.

In one smoldering snap he could be seen posing shirtless with a slew of his music video co-stars in brightly colored clothing.

Another picture showed him flopped facedown on a bed with DJ Khaled’s catchphrase ‘ANOTHER ONE’ splashed across the wall.

Justin also posted a picture of himself in a long bright blue coat while posing up alongside his creative director Nick DeMoura.

Internet personality Andrew ‘King Bach’ Bachelor could also be seen lounging on a sofa with Justin while shooting the music video.

Drake and DJ Khaled took a step back in the music video for Popstar, instead letting pal Justin take center stage.

While Biebs lived the high life in the video, seen sipping champagne while covered in diamonds and surrounded by girls, there was one more moment that stood out for fans.

Justin’s seen lip-syncing a Drake lyric mentioning the 26-year-old’s ex girlfriend Selena Gomez.

‘Look, Ariana, Selena, my Visa,’ the Canadian crooner mimes as he and a posse walk through a party at his mansion.

There are several other sly references to the Baby singer in the song, which also mentions his longtime manager Scooter Braun, who also sneaks in a cameo.

Drake also pokes fun at Justin’s pretty boy image, later rhyming: ‘S**t don’t even usually get this big without a Bieber face.’ 

The video opens with DJ Khaled self recording dozens of videos with ideas for the Popstar music video and sending them to Drake.

‘We have to shoot the Popstar video,’ the producer says. ‘I know the boarders closed, they won’t let me in the country, what do you want me to do? The song is too big. We have to shoot the video. We have to figure something out.’ 

The videos of Khaled overlap into an almost indistinguishable mix of his ideas. 

‘Khaled man, this guy’s off his rocker,’ Drake says exasperated opening the videos. ‘I don’t know what to say…It’s like you someone everything that you have and they’re like “anotha one. (sic)”‘

Wild night: The song starts rolling over film of people passed out in the hallways of a mansion, leading to Justin waking up in bed as he sings to the song 

 Called in a favor: It seems Drake ‘called in a favor’ to get Justin to star in the video

‘I can’t do a video,’ Drake says. ‘I can’t even leave the country and this guy wants me to do a video for him. There’s one thing I can do for sure but I’m gonna have to call in a favor though.’ 

The song starts rolling over film of people passed out in the hallways of a mansion, leading to Justin waking up in bed as he sings to the song. 

Justin walks down the hallways followed by a large security guard, with a bottle of champagne in his hand and diamond chains on his neck. 

He gets downstairs to the party still going on and he quickly makes himself comfortable in between two young ladies.

Justin heads upstairs to find people dancing, as he has a stylist undress and dress him quickly. 

He then heads to a studio with a red backdrop as the lyrics continue ‘Crown in my hand and I’m really playin’ keep-away / S**t don’t even usually get this big without a Bieber face.’ 

The Baby singer continues to enjoy the house party, dancing in the driveway with friends and sitting poolside in a large blue fur coat.

‘You okay?’ the 23-year-old model asks. ‘I had a crazy dream. Drake asked me to be in a video, but he wasn’t in the video it was just a bunch of people,’ Justin says shaking his head. 

He turns to his wife and says ‘I love you,’ before suggesting they take their dog out for a walk. 

While out on their walk, Justin pauses as his phone rings and ‘DRAKE’ appears on the screen.

Selena Gomez just shared a rare bikini photo and it’s sailor-themed – Yahoo! Voices

From Cosmopolitan

If you’re one of the 189 million people who follow Selena Gomez on Instagram, then you know that the singer tends to shy away from bikini pictures, but she’s just gone and made a glorious exception.

To celebrate her upcoming collaboration with K-pop group Blackpink, Selena shared a sailor-inspired snap wearing a red and white stripe bikini, white gloves and a nautical-feel hat. It might not be our go-to beach look – what with the flawless makeup and long, mermaid-level (somehow untangled) hair – but Selena pulls it off effortlessly. I’m calling it now: this is going to be a popular Halloween 2020 costume.

Captioning the image with three ice cream emojis – because the new song is, as you might’ve guessed, called ‘ICE CREAM’ – Sel’s giving us major pin-up girl type vibes with her look, finished with a swipe of bright red lip.

Check out the bikini here:

Um, amazing!

Can we also take a second to talk about how chic those bikini straps are, finished with a bow? They might not stand up to major wave action (we’ve all been there), but Sel doesn’t look like she’s about to jump into the sea anytime soon, so reckon we’re all good on that front.

The singer’s also gone and shared a sneak peek of the song, featuring Blackpink and one very ‘grammable ice cream truck:

It might only be a short snippet but this already sounds like a total bop. Make sure to check back in tomorrow when the song is scheduled for release for a cracker tune and a muchos cool music vid.

Selena Gomez Celebrates Blackpink Collaboration With New Ice Cream Flavor – Variety

Things are getting even sweeter between Selena Gomez and Blackpink.

After collaborating on the single “Ice Cream” from the K-pop group’s upcoming debut studio album,  Gomez is marking the occasion by creating a new flavor of — what else? — ice cream.

Serendipity’s new line of ice cream will release “Cookies & Cream Remix” on Aug. 28, the same day that the single drops. The sweet treat — which costs $5.99 for a pint —is made with pink vanilla ice cream, cookie bites and fudge.

“Basically it’s heaven and every bite is delicious,” Gomez said in a video announcing the flavor.

At the same time, Gomez announced she will become an investor in the Serendipity 3, the restaurant and brand that popularized frozen hot chocolate. The iconic flagship eatery on New York’s Upper East Side was founded in 1954 by Stephen Bruce. Marilyn Monroe and Andy Warhol were regulars, as was Jacqueline Kennedy. There’s also Serendipity locations in Tokyo and Boca Raton, Florida.

The Serendipity line of ice cream was launched at 7-Eleven in February 2019 with eight flavors, including Frrrozen Hot Chocolate, Strawberry Fields Sundae, Outrageous Banana Split, Birthday Cake, Forbidden Broadway Sundae, Cafe Espresso Chip, Humble Pie and Vanilla Vogue.

Gomez recently premiered a new cooking show, “Selena + Chef,” on HBO Max. She will also star in the upcoming Hulu comedy series “Only Murders in the Building” opposite Steve Martin and Martin Short. The series is about three strangers who are true crime fans that suddenly find themselves wrapped up in one.
