Selena Gomez
"Bad Liar"
3 mins 52s
16 June 2017
UK Promos

If you’ve ever wondered whether Selena Gomez could rock a moustache, you’re in luck. The songstress plays multiple roles in this sultry promo, including a self-conscious student, a lecherous faculty member, and a gym teacher channeling Farah Fawcett.

The setting and costume design evoke Richard Linklater’s ‘Dazed and Confused’, while the Seventies vibe is strengthened courtesy of Talking Heads. The smouldering bass line from ‘Psycho Killer’ complements Gomez’s breezy vocals.

Cheating husbands and forbidden crushes are a far cry from Gomez’s Disney days. We didn’t expect nods to Greek mythology either - “But just like the battle of Troy/There's nothing subtle here” - but this is an accomplished musical shift.

Apparently Selena Gomez has had a much publicised romance with Justin Bieber, and her tearful words at the start of this video are presumed to be about the way he suddenly dropped her for someone else. By including this outpouring at the start of the video for The Heart Wants What It Wants, director Dawn Shadforth has nudged the clip from broody promo to fanbase gold dust.
