Selena Gomez has a new video out for “Bad liar”.
In the ’60s-set high school narrative, the “Come & get it” hitmaker plays not only her own character in the video, but also the character’s mother, the school principal, and a blonde woman. It was directed by Lemonheads co-founder Jesse Peretz who has directed episodes of “Girls”, “Orange is the new black” and more.
The track, which interpolates Talking Heads‘ 1977 classic “Psycho killer”, is her first new solo single in a year.
About it, Gomez said: “‘Bad liar’ kind of tells a story of that feeling when you’re obsessed with someone, when you are in the ‘honeymoon phase’, I like to say. I’m a sucker for that feeling. That’s the best feeling in the whole world. I think that this feeling, it’s like you can’t get them out of your head. You’re willing to dress differently, you want to speak differently but that’s not what I’m encouraging. It’s more about the feeling. You just can’t play it cool. This is what I’m feeling in this exact moment, and you don’t know how to play it cool. I’m not natural, I’m very much ‘This is who I am and this is kind of what you get’ and it’s worked out for me so far”.
