Selena Gomez Defends Relationship with Benny Blanco Amid Fan Backlash

Selena Gomez, 31, recently took to Instagram to confirm her six-month-long relationship with music producer Benny Blanco, 35, but what should have been a joyous revelation quickly turned into a heated exchange with fans.

In the comment section of her Instagram post, fans brought up a resurfaced interview in which Benny seemingly threw shade at Selena, calling her a “cookie-cutter pop artist” while praising her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber. This sparked criticism from fans who accused Benny of disrespecting Selena.

Undeterred, Selena responded fiercely to defend her new beau. When one fan labeled her as “corny” for sticking by Benny despite the apparent shade, Selena retorted, “Lol yeah, and he’s still better than anyone I’ve ever been with. Facts.” She later added that Benny has been “the best thing that’s ever happened to me.”

The back and forth didn’t stop there. Another fan accused Selena of consistently dating “crusty, problematic music men,” suggesting she should pursue someone “rich, educated, mature, handsome” instead. Selena dismissed these comments, stating it was “so off” and clarified that she is currently at her “happiest.”

Responding to a troll who suggested she “can’t get [a man] better” than Benny, Selena laughed it off and declared that she would “never be with a f**boy ever again,” alluding to her past relationship with Justin Bieber.

In the middle of the online drama, Selena announced her decision to take a break from Instagram “for a while” to focus on work. She emphasized that she stands up for what she believes in and won’t let others’ words guide her life.

While some speculated that Selena and Benny’s relationship might be a publicity stunt, Selena vehemently denied this, saying, “Never trolling.”

The singer also addressed Benny’s previous criticism of her in an interview with Zach Sang. Benny had seemingly insulted Selena by calling her a “cookie-cutter pop artist” while praising Justin Bieber for being more genuine. Despite this, Selena stood by her man, expressing gratitude for their relationship.

Before officially confirming their relationship on Instagram, Selena and Benny had already been interacting on the platform. Selena had liked and commented on one of Benny’s posts, hinting at their connection. The couple has been dating for six months, with Selena sharing a cozy snapshot of them on her Instagram stories.

In July, Benny attended Selena’s birthday party, and the two have collaborated on several songs, creating a musical connection alongside their romantic involvement. Selena, known for her high-profile past relationships, including Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, and Nick Jonas, seems determined to make things work with Benny Blanco despite the online controversy. As she takes a break from Instagram, fans will be eager to see how this latest chapter in Selena’s love life unfolds.
