Becky G Claps Back At Haters After Backlash Over Her Supposedly Shading Selena Gomez
As you may know, Becky G was accused of throwing shade at fellow singer Selena Gomez after she made some comments on her singing parts in Taki Taki. But did she really try to attack Selena or not?
After the backlash she received, Becky decided to address the situation, making it very clear that was not the case at all!
It all started with Becky being part of a lyric challenge for Seventeen magazine, during which she was required to identify a song based on some of the lyrics.
‘Oh I know this one. I will never forget this one because when I heard it I was a bit confused since it says, 'Come in the party, have a fiesta, blow out the candles and have a siesta.’ But I do not want to have a siesta in the middle of the fiesta. Like, I wanna party. I would not take a nap, you know what I'm saying?’ she joked as she correctly identified the song as being Taki Taki.
As you can imagine, it did not take long for people to just assume that her comments were a personal attack against Selena Gomez.
But now, Becky G is clapping back at the haters.
In response to a fan who cut that part of the video and shared it, she tweeted that ‘I have always loved and supported a true queen like Sel. To cut a snippet of a clip and take it out of context is what's so wrong about this 'Stan' culture. Sad to see yet another 'fan' going against what their favorite artist believes in by just putting other females down🤦🏻♀️.’
She went on to argue that people are free to love their favorite artists but that doesn’t mean they should be speaking badly about others
The singer then joked that she is even more confused about that sort of behavior than she is about that line about the siesta in the middle of the fiesta!
Becky then gushed over Selena, saying that: ‘WHO DOESNT LOVE A KIND AND PRECIOUS SOUL LIKE SELENA GOMEZ!? You got your facts wrong. I’m a Gomez myself, we don’t do that here.’
