Selena Gomez just proved that blondes really do have more fun after taking her new hairdo out for a test drive during a night out, and she’s even putting her impressive rap skills on full display.
Selena Gomez shocked fans last week after teasing a brand new hair color, and over the weekend, the blonde bombshell was clearly in the building AND rightly so, feelin’ herself after flaunting her daring ‘do. Sel was photographed in her new platinum blonde locks while grabbing dinner at Nobu in Malibu on Sunday night as she met up with some friends.
And just before her dinner outing, Selena was clearly deep into the pregame as she was recorded by good friend Anna rapping a verse to Saweetie and Doja Cat’s hit single “Best Friend,” and now I’m officially putting this on my list of verses to memorize… “Is that my bestie in a Tessie? Fresh blow out, skin on tan, ooh, she ready.”
Although it’s unclear what specifically prompted Sel’s sudden change in hair color, her hairstylists, Nikki Lee and Riawna Capri, recently spoke out about the cool tones she wanted just in time to kick off warmer weather.
Nikki and Riawna both revealed in a statement, “We’ve been doing Selena’s color for over a decade now. She typically keeps it pretty natural, but this time she went for a big change. This blonde is unique to her as we had to make sure there was an equal balance of cool and warm for her skin tone. It’s an edgier look and perfect for summer.”
Although Sel makes it look effortless, this transformation process was not just a quick trip to the salon… her stylists explained that the entire project took “200 foils, several bowls of bleach and eight hours of hair magic,” but that it was “definitely worth it!”
And we certainly agree! Naturally, fans love Selena’s new look, and some are even convinced that this wasn’t just a random urge she had.
One fan wrote, “She’s blonde for a reason, something is coming,” while another person said, “The last time Selena went blonde she came out with the wrong guy. Maybe she’ll come out with the right one this time.” The last time she surprised fans with blonde hair was four years ago when she debuted a much shorter blonde bob during the 2017 American Music Awards.
As many fans know, she recently wrapped filming for Only Murders in the Building, so with no prior engagements we know of, maybe she was craving a slight change for the upcoming summer season. This still won’t stop fans from keeping a close eye on Sel because you know what they say — when a woman changes her hair, she’s about to change the world!
