Crediting a woman’s success to the man who abused her is weird behavior.

btw abused or not, their relationship was one of the most mediatic things of the last decade and you can't ignore it when half of her (and his) discography is about that. :cm:

Exactly! People really need to stop with the disrespect towards Selena like... I truly believe at this point she is a legend. A successful music career, ventures into fashion/makeup, a huge social media influencer, an immigration/Latin-American Activist, a child star, a spokeswoman for lupus, a media titan... like stop. Enough!

Dua has been bigger musically since "New Rules". Gomez has never had an humongous global hit like "One Kiss" or "Don't Start Now' or an universally acclaimed album like "Future Nostalgia" - no one takes seriously as an "artist" besides her stans. Her career as an Instagram model is flourishing though, good for her.

? He was already signed by Usher & recording his first album in 2008, with the first single dropping in May 2009. Everything you just said happened in 2009. They rose in fame around the same time, with their relationship accelerating both their statuses.

The Selena stans talking about her frontloaded #1 that plummeted :rip: DSN is bigger than LYTLM

Dua has more weeks in the BB200 top 10, and is about to surpass Selena's total weeks in the top 10 on the hot 100.

Oh and Grammys:

Dua: 3

Selena: 0

Says who? Are you forgetting she had one of the most critically acclaimed songs of 2017 (Bad Liar)?

Selena is a BIGGER CELEBRITY of course (thanks to Justin Bieber and Disney and Instagram)but GP don't know her as a singer. SORRY

this is so sexist. the reason why jelena was big because Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. It's not just justin. the relationship helped both. Also selena was enjoying her 4x platinum  hit "Naturally" and 3x emmy, acclaimed show "WOWP" before even met justin :rip:

She hasn't.

but she will with her next era, if this keeps on going..

 

Selena isn't really a big huge pop girl in the end.

She may be the 3rd biggest ex-act, but she really was just one of those failed potentials for bigger things.

I like her but it feels like she is a bit overrated. Revival is the only reason for that imo.

 

 

But yea, Selena's streaming power has been dying so if it's a competition..Dua will deffo win

After all, Selena is from the 00s..and isn't she even trying to go into acting now :rip:

We couldn't be bothered about xenophobic and corrupt grammys, it's clear they're unwilling to reward a hardworking latina woman for her art :michael: Luckily critics know the tea!

Dua has an album and a single in the IFPI year end chart, but Selena has a #1.
Dua has the most streamed female album on Spotify, but Selena has a #1.
Dua has more weeks inside B200 top 10, but Selena has a #1.

Dua has it easier than Selena bc she doesn’t face xenophobia/discrimination for her heritage the same way Selena does.

When she stepped into the music industry with TALENT, something the other girl doesn’t and will never have.

Selena's career has not declined lmao. you are delusional. 

to claim because 1 album didn't have longevity due to lack of singles that a career has declined.

Positions also only had 2 singles like Rare yet had great longevity so it’s probably not that

It’s now 42 weeks total vs Selena’s 46

A number #1 is that important? Selena begged and cried for people to stream Rare so she could get the #1, only for it to spend less than 30 weeks on the BB200. And from what I remember, Selena also released multiple versions of Rare, and she's released remixes to her songs? So what's the difference? Why won't her songs stick? Is the GP tired of her whispering pitchy vocals?
