Selena Gomez Apologises For Her “Only Friend” Statement
Selena Gomez recently after claiming that Taylor Swift has been her only industry friend in an interview with Rolling Stone, the pop-artist has been receiving heavy criticism.
After being reminded by social media users of her friendship with Francia Raisa, she issued an apology. In 2017, when Selena was experiencing kidney failure due to lupus complications, Francia donated one of her kidneys to the singer. They claimed to have known each other for many years. Some of Gomez's fans were quick to point out that Raisa is an actor, while Gomez could have been thinking of the music business. On Sunday, Gomez joined in the discussion by writing, "sorry I did not even mention every person I know," under a TikTok clip about Raisa stopping to follow her. Some of her supporters were unhappy with the way her comment made them feel. "Well, what about the ONE person who literally gave you a piece of her body to count as "every person I know"? Do you feel like you have that person's name on the end of your tongue? "Someone posted on Reddit.
The "Lose You to Love Me" singer's declaration about Swift was obviously hyperbole, and on Sunday, some other industry buddy, Nicola Peltz Beckham, posted a picture of a girls' night sleepover with Gomez, further emphasizing this point. Swift, who has been successful since the release of her album "Midnights," has remained silent on the matter.
According to Us Weekly, Gomez and Raisa have known each other for 15 years after meeting in 2007 at a children's hospital.
At age 12, Selena Gomez made her acting debut on Disney Channel's Wizards of Waverly Place, where she quickly became a fan favorite. She made the transition from TV to movies, began a singing career, took on the role of producer, and launched a cosmetics business. The thirty-year-journey, old's a taste of which can now be found on Apple TV+, has been eventful.
