Selena Gomez Throws Shade at Justin Bieber in New Dance Video
Selena Gomez may not officially badmouth Justin Bieber in the press, but she’s not against passive aggressive tactics to show her disapproval of his behavior. Case in point: her new choreographed video, in which she and her pals poke fun at the Biebs’ smoking and insinuate that he’s a “douchebag.”
In this clip, Gomez and her pals reenacted the same vibe that they did when they danced to her BFF’s Taylor Swift’s song, ‘I Knew You Were Trouble.’ This time, they groove to the song ‘Everybody Knows’ by Dustin Tavella, which samples heavily from Ginuwine’s ‘Pony.’
The lyrics to ‘Everybody Knows’ include “Your boyfriend is a douchebag / And everybody knows,” which Gomez and her gal pals seem to relish in reciting. While it’s true that they technically could be talking about anyone, Gomez makes a motion similar to toking up, and one of her pals actually tweeted that it was a pointed video.
We danced tonight. It was awesome. Especially cause we all dedicated it to someone ✌….. and then ate Chinese food after.

It does seem like a blatant jab at J.B., and it couldn’t have come at a worse time. He just got out of the hospital, had the worst birthday ever (during which Sel dissed him as well) and got into a scuffle with a paparazzo. To Gomez’s credit, she has since made the clip private, but it already went viral and was copied several times — hence the video above.
C’mon, kids. If you’re gonna play up your failed relationship for press, please play nice!
UPDATE: Gomez’s pal’s tweet has since been deleted, but screenshots are forever!
