Selena Gomez is our nation's best A&R, full stop. She picks the best songwriters (often the aforementioned Michaels, with her lyrical partner Justin Tranter) and producers in pop music. She shepherds new behind-the-scenes talent and turns them into the most in-demand music makers in the world once she's through with them. The Talking Heads-indebted "Bad Liar" is the synthesis of all that legwork. A breathless, hyper-obsessed song with deeply weird lyrics (please chisel "But just like the Battle of Troy / There's nothing subtle here" onto my headstone, cheers) finds Gomez warbling in utmost control over one of the year's best samples (Tina Weymouth and your magical bass, we thank you). Maybe you'd written Selena off before. Maybe you still do. So maybe stop doing that, put "Bad Liar" on a loop, and get with the times.

Congrats to her.

Personally I dislike the song and it is probably at he bottom of her discography for me. But that is the great thing about taste that it can be different for every person. I just find the fact it 'defined 2017' a too much of a statement though.

Any song by Kim Petras is better than this overrated song

The song is excellent. It's also a refreshing change to the other mainstream music that's out.

Selena Gomez is for music like alternative medicines for health. Both have no use but people still consume them.

i'm not even necessarily a selena fan, but like what are you even going on about? do you think that every artist needs to have a profound impact on the landscape they inhabit? :skull:

I think that artists should be creative. If not, at least have good vocals, performing skills, dancing. If not, have an entertaining, controversial career. I can't think what good does Selena for pop.

I don't get why people are so up her ass.

 

She's awful, like how anyone can listen to that is beyond me.

Seriously it's ridiculous. 'Fetish' is the best song she released this year. :'(

plenty of people find her creative and even if not that, her relationship drama has entertained a lot of people on this site. why are you so bitter over her? it's really super strange.
