Selena Gomez Finally Releases 'Bad Liar' Single And Music Video And It's As Brilliant As We Imagined

The 24-year-old singer has released her long-awaited music and we couldn't love it more if we tried.


The day is finally here.

As promised, Selena Gomez has released her much-talked about single 'Bad Liar', weeks after teasing the track on social media.

This morning, the 24-year-old released the single to YouTube, and several clips from her up-coming music video on her Instagram account, as well as the lyrics to the song.

#BadLiar 5.18

In the song, Gomez – who has teased numerous lyrics from the single on her Instagram over the past fortnight – can be heard singing:

I was walking down the street the other day/Trying to distract myself/Then I see your face/Ooh, you got someone else.

I see how your attention builds/It's like looking in a mirror/Your touch like a happy pill/But all we do is fear/All my feelings on fire/Guess I'm a bad liar.


Unsurprisingly, the Texas-born star hasn't given us any clues (as yet) to whom she's referring to but I'm sure you're already thinking who we're thinking...

All my feelings on fire... #BadLiarOutNow

In the clips from the video, Selena - who is currently dating Canadian singer, The Weeknd – can be seen singing on an old-school VHS player before writhing around in bed with what appears to be ribbons tired around both her wrists and a yellow suicide risk bracelet on her left forearm.

Gomez's latest posts come a day after she uploaded an make-up free image of her in bed with said hospital bracelet, which suggested her new video might bring to light subjects of mental health and suicide, as seen in her Netflix series, 13 Reasons Why, of which she is an executive producer.

However, the photographer who snapped Gomez's pic, Petra Collins, has now come out to explain the reason behind the hospital bracelet and bandaged wrists.

'Selena came straight from the hospital to this shoot—from being there for lupus,' she wrote on the star's Instagram post, about the stars condition which can result in skin rashes and joint pains.

We're glad to hear Selena is back.
