As per Elle magazine, Selena Gomez might have decided to skip the red carpet at the 2023 SAG Awards today because she is busy shooting for the third season of her show Only Murders in The Building, in New York City.

Recently, Gomez opened up about Martin and Short in an interview with Vanity Fair. She expressed that she loves them and even though she does not like calling them her grandpas, she said that they ‘kind of are’. Selena also revealed that she would laugh at the same jokes that the actors tell her time and again.

The Rare Beauty founder further revealed that only Martin Short texts her, while Steve Martin prefers to send emails to her team. “What’s funny is Marty will text me, but Steve will not,” she said. “He has my email, but he won’t send me the email. He will send it to [my assistant]. I think he wants to be polite. It’s very endearing, but he makes it a whole thing.”
