Although they previously collaborated on the group’s hit song “Ice Cream,” Selena Gomez and Blackpink have just recently dated. It’s not their fault though – the band and Gomez were forced to film their parts of the music video separately due to COVID restrictions. On Saturday, Nov. 26, the “Calm Down” singer posted a photo of herself and the South Korean pop group to her Instagram account with the caption, “Selpink chillin.”
In the first photo, Gomez is sandwiched between Jennie, Rosé, Jisoo and Lisa, all of whom are wearing their own merchandise. Meanwhile, Gomez donned a long black jacket, jeans and a black shirt for the occasion. In the second photo, the band and Gomez appear to be having a group hug.
During an interview with CR Fashion Book, Gomez revealed that she had met Rosé and Jisoo before, but was excited to meet the rest of the group one day. It seems that she has now made this encounter a reality.
“I adore them and their energy,” she told the publication. “We had a lot of fun together, but unfortunately due to the virus, we couldn’t do anything in person. I had met Jisoo and Rosé at a fashion show a few years ago, but I looking forward to meeting the other girls in person one day. Shooting the music video was a lot of fun. My videos tend to be a bit moody and they are known for their colorful and fun videos and it was exciting for me to get into their world.
Blackpink are currently on their “Born Pink” world tour, so chances are they’ll be hanging out with quite a few artists along the way. However, thanks to their remote collaboration, the group’s meeting with Gomez is very pleasant.
