Selena and Social media
Selena Gomez and Drake’s Spiral is about Instagram, Twitter, and other social media sites. Gomez herself revealed that she is someone who posts regularly on her Instagram. When she spoke to Vogue, she said, ” I woke up one morning and looked at Instagram. Like every other person, and I was done. I was tired of reading horrible things. I was tired of seeing other people’s lives. After that decision, it was instant freedom. My life in front of me was my life. And I was present, and I could not have been more happy about it. Lastly, I think the next time I do an album it’ll be different. I want to give it one last try before I maybe retire music”
Director Petra Collins took to Instagram and wrote,” 𝙎𝙋𝙄𝙍𝘼𝙇🔪💄🔥 I’ve been spiraling about this for 3 years and so excited to finally share💕!!!! @ Selena Gomez 🌟. @realmelissabroder and I started writing this and I think we created a beautiful monster.
