I have the best friends, the best fans in the whole world and I just couldn't be happier. I'm good. I love who I am. I don't care. I'm big. I'm not. I don't care. I love who I am.” She continued, "And yeah, I'm gonna be taking a second from social media, 'cause this is a little silly."

What happened between Selena Gomez, Kylie Jenner, and Hailey Bieber?

Lately, there have been more than one instance when Selena Gomez has made headlines because of social media.

Recently, a video featuring Hailey Bieber surfaced on social media, where the model could be seen pretending to gag at the mention of Taylor Swift on Drop The Mic – Hailey’s former rap battle show with Method Man. Selena took to the comments section of the post and came to the defense of her BFF as she wrote, “So sorry, my best friend is and continues to be one of the best in the game.”

Before this, Selena commented ‘I love you’ on a video which termed Jenner and Bieber ‘nepo babies’ and said that they were acting like ‘mean girls’.

However, Jenner slammed these claims and wrote, “This is reaching. no shade towards selena ever and i didn’t see her eyebrow posts! u guys are making something out of nothing. this is silly."

Selena replied to her comment as she wrote, "Agreed @kyliejenner It’s all unnecessary. I’m a fan of Kylie!"

In the video, the women could be seen lip-synching the words to a trending audio that said, “I'm not saying she deserved it, but I'm saying God's timing is always right." Bieber took down the video after fans accused her of poking fun at Gomez.

The singer commented on the fan’s video and wrote, “"It's ok! I don't let these things get me down! Be nice to everyone! X.”
