Becky G Claps Back at Troll Who Accused Her of ‘Dragging’ Selena Gomez
During a recent episode of Seventeen's "Lyric Challenge" video series, the "Mayores" singer was asked to identify songs based off snippets. "Oh I know this one. I'll never forget this one because when I heard it I was a little confused because it says, 'Come in the party, have a fiesta, blow out the candles and have a siesta,'" she said in the clip. "But I don't want to have a siesta in the middle of the fiesta. Like, I want to party. I wouldn't take a nap, you know what I'm saying? But of course I know this one."
The playful criticism struck a nerve with Gomez' fans, who accused Becky of "dragging" the pop star. "Becky G dragging Selena's verse as if her discography it's not one of the worst of a Latin woman lmao" one particularly irate fan tweeted along with a link to the clip. Becky saw this as an opportunity to clear the air, as well as question "stan" culture.
"I have always loved & supported a true queen like Sel. To cut a snippet of a video & take it completely out of context is what is so wrong about this 'Stan' culture," she replied. "Sad to see yet another 'fan' going against what their favorite artist believes in by putting other females down."
And she didn't stop there, taking the opportunity to declare herself a Gomez. "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," Becky continued. MAY I ADD THAT THIS VIDEO WAS TAKEN FROM A GAME I PLAYED WHERE I WAS CONFUSED ABOUT MY OWN LYRICS EVEN. the industry breaks us apart & pits us against each other enough, sad that 'stans' have to do it too. Someone will always have something to say I guess. Ok. I’m done now."
