Becky G Shuts Down Accusation That She Shaded Selena Gomez

Becky G is not here for 'stan-wars', and she is making sure her followers know.

The "Dollar" singer went to Twitter to clear the air after she was accused of throwing shade at Selena Gomez. During a lyric challenge game for Seventeen magazine, the L.A. native was asked to identify a song based on small snippet of the lyrics. She got to Gomez' verse in the smash hit, "Taki Taki", to which this was her reaction:

"Oh I know this one. I'll never forget this one because when I heard it I was a little confused because it says, 'Come in the party, have a fiesta, blow out the candles and have a siesta. But I don't want to have a siesta in the middle of the fiesta. Like, I want to party. I wouldn't take a nap, you know what I'm saying? But of course I know this one."

People on the internet quickly assumed Becky was "shading" Selena Gomez, but Becky G had to make sure fans knew this was not the case. She took to Twitter to clap back at the trolls

Her response to a fan was (see below):

"I have always loved & supported a true queen like Sel. To cut a snippet of a video & take it completely out of context is what is so wrong about this 'Stan' culture. Sad to see yet another 'fan' going against what their favorite artist believes in by putting other females down🤦🏻‍♀️."


The "Mayores" singer wasn't done yet. She continued:

"I mean honestly, why do people do this? You can love your favorite artists but it doesn’t mean you have to go out your way to speak badly about others. I’m even more confused about this behavior than I am about the siesta during the fiesta line. 😩🤷🏻‍♀️"

Becky G had more words for the trolls. She went on to praise Selena saying that she is part of the Gomez family herself:

"WHO DOESNT LOVE A KIND AND PRECIOUS SOUL LIKE SELENA GOMEZ!? You got your facts wrong. I’m a Gomez myself, we don’t do that here."


Before logging off, she left the trolls with one last message. She talked about context and the importance of unity:

"The industry breaks us apart & pits us against each other enough, sad that 'stans' have to do it too. Someone will always have something to say I guess. Ok. I’m done now," she concluded


Selena Gomez just celebrated her 27th birthday, and Becky G continues to drop some bops! We stan to Latina legends!
