Selena Gomez ‘takes aim’ at exes Justin Bieber and The Weeknd in new song Boyfriend

The music video for Selena’s new song sees the star seduce a trio of men before transforming them into frogs, while the lyrics make reference to repeated mistakes in the love stakes

They say you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your Prince Charming but Selena Gomez is turning dates in to frogs and seemingly taking a swipe at her exes with her new single, Boyfriend.

The 27-year-old American star famously dated Canadian singers Justin Bieber, 26, and The Weekend – real name 30-year-old Abel Tesfaye.

Selina and Justin had a high profile on-off romance that raged from 2010 to 2018 before they called things quits and Justin went on to marry model Hailey Baldwin, 23.

While Selina also enjoyed a romance with The Weekend between 2017 and 2018 – however her latest single laments making repeated mistakes when it comes to love.

“I want a boyfriend/But I just keep hitting dead ends/Try to take a shortcut, but I get cut again and again,” the chart topping beauty coos in the song.

“I want a boyfriend/Tell me, are there any good ones left?/I keep finding wrong ones, but I want love again and again,” she adds.

The accompanying music video shows Selena on dates with a trio of men before transforming them into frogs via a magic potion.

Some fans have noted a similarity to Selena’s video and that of ex-lover The Weeknd’s single Heartless which saw him lick a frog.

Taking to Instagram to discuss the release of the new single as well as a deluxe version of her US number 1 album Rare, Selena stressed the fact that she does not have nor want a boyfriend currently.

“Many of you know how excited I have been to release a song called ‘Boyfriend’,” she began.

“It’s a lighthearted song about falling down and getting back up time and time again in love, but also knowing that you don’t need anyone other than yourself to be happy,” she wrote.

“We wrote it long before our current crisis, but in the context of today, I want to be clear that a boyfriend is nowhere near the top of my list of priorities,” she continued.

“Just like the rest of the world, I’m praying for safety, unity and recovery during this pandemic,” she went on, adding that proceeds from the album sales will go towards a coronavirus relief charity.
