Decoding Relationship Clues and Collaborative Sparks in the Social Media Spotlight
During this epoch of social media dominance, the pivotal moment of a couple unveiling their relationship to the public, commonly known as going “Instagram official,” has taken on considerable significance. Selena Gomez, however, has imbued a fresh dimension to this phenomenon by engaging in a series of remarks on the platform in reference to and in defense of the speculated romantic association with Benny Blanco.
While there has been no official affirmation of their relationship status through a public grid post or an overt declaration, Gomez made her presence felt across various Instagram posts this week, notably commenting “facts.” on a Thursday post from the Popfactions account regarding her romantic status.
Her commentary spree did not cease there, sparking speculation among some observers that her Instagram account might have been compromised. In one comment, she expressed, “He is my absolute everything in my heart,” and in another, she asserted, “He has treated me better than any other individual on this planet.” Additionally, a comment seemingly authored by Gomez appeared to subtly allude to her past relationships, including Justin Bieber, Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye, Zedd, and Nick Jonas, stating, “He’s still better than anyone I’ve ever been with. Facts.”
Gomez further added to the intrigue by posting a monochrome image on her Instagram Stories, depicting an intimate moment snuggled up to the chest of a figure closely resembling Blanco. Accompanying the image, she conveyed, “Just a reminder of how much I appreciate and love each and every one of you.”
In another Story post, Gomez showcased her left hand adorned with a ring embellished with a jewel-encrusted letter B. Notably, more than one of Benny Blanco’s names commences with the letter B.
Their professional collaborations extend back to 2015, with Blanco and Gomez collaborating on multiple tracks, including her recent release “Single Soon,” which she has openly asserted is unrelated to her past relationship with The Weeknd. Gomez, historically forthcoming about her relationship status, had previously shared a video in June where she vocally declared her single status during a recreational soccer game, adding, “I’m just a little high-maintenance! But I’ll love you soooooo much!”
