So, Taylor Swift has what? 10 exes so far and she's only 27 years old? Now maybe that doesn't seem like too much, but I thought the average number of boyfriends someone has before getting hitched is like 3 or 4? That's just my guesstimate, at least. Although, Selena Gomez doesn't have enough exes for them to start their own broken hearts club, she does seem to go back to Justin Bieber over and over again. She's clearly crazy about him even when they're not together. Don't believe me? Then check out this music video below and tell me she didn't draw inspiration from her own true feelings for him. But that's not even the half of it!
Now clearly she is still crazy about him (and probably vice versa). Selena Gomez has a few other skeletons in her closet who only but the truest of fans know about it. Think you know everything there is to know about Selena Gomez? Well, read this article to update your Selena Gomez trivia. Also, fangirl beware—you may be shocked (and disappointed) to learn some of the following facts about her! From rehab to possibly lip-synching her performances to the movies and TV shows she’s working right on, you’ll learn how our favorite pop princess has been toying with our emotions lately.
16 She Possibly Lip-Synced Her Entire Show At The 2017 AMAs
I swear some fans (if you can call them that) are so harsh and insensitive when it comes to social media. I'm not sure if you've seen her latest performance—her latest performance in almost a year, mind you--but she did an awesome job singing while laying on the ground in front of a car (yes, a car— the video).
Even if she lip-synched some of it, she still did an amazing job considering her illness and the fact that she almost (maybe) had a panic attack right before taking the stage. Of course, many of us have stressful jobs where we need to give a big presentation in front of business managers and Selena handled her job no differently—she handled it with superior grace and poise. Some may have noticed a "sad face" she wore towards the end of the music video. If that was her only hiccup, I'd still say she gave an extraordinary performance.

15 Desperate To Create Any Possible Stir, She Becomes A Blonde Overnight
Hey Selena fans, get this! According to her personal stylist and colorist it "took 9 hours, about 300 foils and 8 bowls of bleach, all with 2 stylists working together simultaneously" to color this star's hair. Wow, what a commitment to beauty! I'm not gonna lie, after seeing how beautiful her hair transformation was from brown to blonde, I kinda want to get the same done. Wish me luck! If you're wondering how someone gets the audacity and willpower to sit in a chair for 9 hours straight getting their hair done, then just remember her recent breakup with The Weeknd. Haven't we all gone to a tattoo parlor or hair salon after a bad breakup? Well, sometimes it's typical for women to get an extreme cosmetic job to help them move on. And apparently, Selena Gomez is no different.

14 Her On Again Off Again (And On Again) Relationship With Justin Bieber Is Exhausting And Immature
Gee whiz maybe her breakup with the Weeknd has to do with her keeping tabs on Justin Bieber. The Weeknd and Selena broke up in mid October, and just a mere few weeks later she shows her face at one of Justin Bieber's hockey games. So, maybe there was some possible emotional cheating going on? Who knows—maybe! There have been no reports of them doing anything more than friend-like behavior. According to PopSugar, they have broken up (and gotten back together) at least three times so far. That's quite a bit. I think everyone has that ex that they keep going back to. I mean, at least once, right? I think this couple should call it quits forever. But that's just me. And yes, I know there are probably a lot of Selena-Justin shippers out there that are breathing down my neck right about now. That's just my opinion, everyone!

13 She Kept The Reason Why She Went To Rehab Hidden For A While
Okay, so 2016 was a rough year for poor Selena Gomez. She was diagnosed with lupus and her mom had a very public miscarriage. For all those who don't know, lupus can be a chronic autoimmune disease that can affect any part of the body. It's called autoimmune because at that point the body can't tell which cells are the disease that it needs to kill and which are the body's defense mechanism (also known as antibodies). Plus, I believe Selena's breakup with Justin was around that time, too. So, it makes sense for our girl, Selena Gomez, to check into some long-term therapy. Good for her for knowing where her limits are. That's a crucial adulting skill everyone should have. Fortunately for Selena, her lupus condition was not chronic. Phew!

12 Her Music Videos Are Becoming...Not So Creative
Yes, it's true. Her Fetish music video is just a three-minute closeup of her mouth the entire time. Haha what's next—her nose? I watched the entire video and can confirm the rumors. Unfortunately, they're true. Now, one could argue that this wasn't supposed to be a smash-hit music video since it says "audio" next to the song title. Okay, okay so we shouldn't burn her to the stake just for this. She and her producers will probably come out with a new, "actual" music video later on this year or next year. But hey, it looks like people don't care too much considering it received 75 million views. I'm guessing that there are some strange men (and women) out there who get an extra special kick out her lips music video. All I can say is: gross!

11 She Has Just As Many Bad Boy Problems As Taylor Does
What did we count earlier? I believe Selena Gomez has a grand total of seven exes (assuming the other guys were just rumors—lookin' at you Charlie Puth, Orlando Bloom, and Niall Horan). Her most recent relationship was with The Weeknd which ended in late October of this year, having been together a whopping total of ten months. I guess according to some people that's not long at all, but it's pretty long if you compare it with the duration of Taylor Swift's past relationships. I would say ten months is a fairly long time if you ask me. A Hollywood insider said the breakup was mutual, although other sources say it was a surprise. Since we are talking about celebrity gossip it's probably the less dramatic of the two scenarios. That's right—it was probably a mutual breakup.

10 Rumor Has It That She's Cheated On Justin Bieber
Well, according to rumors they both cheated on each other. Pretty crappy, right? Apparently, there was a pretty nasty back and forth argument between Selena and Justin on Instagram. They seemed to have been taking jabs at each other when Selena called out Justin for not being able to deal with fan hate. To which, he accused Selena of rising to fame because she was piggy-backing off of his own stardom and fame by dating him. Basically once Selena accused Justin of cheating, he retorted right back by saying "I cheated...Oh and I forgot about you and Zayn [Malik]?" Outch! Let's hope for all you Selena fans that he just made that up to distract his fans from possibly his own cheating behavior. I guess as commoners we’ll never know for sure.

9 She Agreed To Work With A Notoriously Creepy Filmmaker
Woody Allen has taken a lot of heat in these recent years. He was one of my favorite directors before he was accused of abusing his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow. I guess, between him, Bill Cosby, and Louie C.K. we can't seem to catch a break, can we? But Woody Allen has been accused of doing more than that! Reportedly, he has been in relationships with people much, much younger than him—one being at least 35 years younger! What does this mean for Selena? Well, hopefully they don't get too close for comfort. After all, she is single now. I guess, I wouldn't too shocked if they started some kind of courtship. Ew? Yes, I know! Let’s hope our pop princess keeps their relationship strictly work related. *Fingers crossed*

8 She Was The Executive Producer Of A Show That Sensationalized A Very Dark And Serious Subject Matter
Yes, that's right. I'm talking about 13 Reasons Why. If you've never heard of the series then just know it's a drama-mystery web series about a girl named Hannah Baker who left behind her friend, Clay Jenson, a video detailing all of the people who wronged her and brought on her suicide. It's an emotionally gripping series and some people think it's too surreal for young people to watch. It's kinda like when people sensationalize mass killings (which unfortunately) only propagate the problem because they are drawing too much attention to it. People are worried this series may increase the risk of high school suicide victims. What do you think? It’s definitely a controversial topic that Selena Gomez has gotten some heat for. I don’t blame fans for airing on the safe side when it comes to keeping our country’s young people safe from harm.

7 She Doesn’t Seem To Care About Black Lives Matter Movement
So, it was only about a year and a half ago when Selena Gomez was accused of minimizing the Black Lives Matter movement via her Twitter account. Well, here's the story. One Twitter user called her out for not acknowledging the Black Lives Matter or police brutality. To which Selena retorts, "oh lol so that means if I hashtag something I save lives? No-I could give two f**ks about 'sides.' You don't know what I do." I kinda get what she means. To some people, the Black Lives Matter movement seem to just be a buzz phrase that drove social media crazy for awhile. Many people were taking sides when they had no idea what the full story was. Selena simply didn't want to take part because she didn't think a lousy hashtag would save lives. But when you're a pop star, you're no longer an ordinary person. I think that's something that Selena is forgetting.

6 She Made Us Think She Had Justin Bieber’s Name Tattooed On Her Wrist
This happened a few years ago, when Selena Gomez was only 19 years old. The paparazzi went totally nutso over a possible tattoo spotted on her right wrist. Of course it turned out to be just some black marker. And haven't we all done that when we were young? Heck, I still do it to be quite honest (only sometimes though). The paparazzi really dropped the ball on this one. It even looks crudely written so I don't think they had one leg to stand on in this claim. This is just an example of Selena expressing her love and telling other guys to back off since she's taken. Awww so sweet! I only wonder if Justin Bieber has done the same for her. If not, then I think Selena is fine with it since she seems pretty mature for her age.

5 She Gets SUPER Emotional On Twitter
Well, on second thought...maybe I'm wrong. On May 26th of this year she made twitter post after twitter post talking about how much heart and effort she is putting into her acting career. It seems like she is fighting some media backlash for 13 Reasons Why when she says, "Everything I touch I just wanna make sure I put my time and energy into it and I want it to be amazing." We can tell she takes her acting and her producer roles very, very seriously. She also comments on her acting a whole bunch that day saying things like, "I like to take my time. Balance and patience is my everything right now." Well, Selena, we are incredibly grateful for the entertainment you have provided in your acting and singing career. Cheers!

4 She's Seen Getting Cozy With Orlando Bloom, Despite His Romance With Katy Perry
Okay so just last year, things were seen getting real hot and heavy between the two Hollywood stars, Selena Gomez and Orlando Bloom. They were spotted being all over each other at a nightclub where Selena had her concert's after party in L.A.. However, there have been no signs indicating that they are heading towards a relationship. By the looks of it, it was probably just a one time thing. Which is good because there are reports that he was supposedly dating Katy Perry at the time. It's never smart to enter a love triangle (someone always gets hurt) and that's probably why the two didn't let their groping go too far. It seems that they were both each other's rebound after both having broken up with their significant others recently.
3 Her Friendship With Demi Lovato Is On Thin Ice
Although they seemed to have been on the outs back in 2015 for seemingly boy-related reasons (you guessed it!—Justin Bieber), they seem to be friends again. It seems that Lovato has finally come around and actually considers Justin Bieber to be "...actually a nice guy. I don’t really know him that well, but he seems to have grown up." Hopefully, it didn't take Demi Lovato finally coming around to liking Justin Bieber for Selena to be friends with her again. Remember the golden rule, ladies—sisters before misters. Personally, I know my girl friendships have lasted much, much longer than my boyfriend relationships. Thankfully, our girl Selena has finally come around for her BFF Demi Lovato. Also, that nastiness seems to be completely in their past because now in 2017 they seem to be closer than ever!

2 She Actually Turned Down A Role In High School Musical 3
She told New York Daily News that while she thought the role was cute, she thought the role would be best suited for someone else. This could stem from her desire to be a more prestigious actress and to be taken more seriously in her acting career. Who could blame her? She definitely heightened her prestige when we saw her in The Big Short. Remember? The part where broke the fourth wall to explain how the big banks crippled our economy during 2008-2009. She definitely acquired more fame by working alongside Ryan Gosling (swoon!) and Christian Bale in that movie. Well, good for you, Selena! Keep reading to discover the latest roles she has taken on in Hollywood to advance her career as an A-list celebrity. Some of the tasks she has accepted will make your jaw drop.
1 Sorry Edward Fans, She’s On Team Jacob
Okay, okay so Selena Gomez has had her fair share of the dating world. I mean let's count her ex's: there's Justin, The Weeknd, Samuel Krost, Nick Jonas, Zedd and—last but not least—Taylor Lautner. Okay so what is that? That's six exes in total. I guess, she's creeping up behind Taylor Swift in the ex-boyfriend count. Oh, well...who could blame her? I don't. Although she only dated him for less than a year, she was reported saying, "Taylor has made me so happy. I didn't know I could be that happy." Well, good for her for not totally trash-talking her exes behind their backs. I know way too many people who do that. It's typically a sign that they haven't moved on. Though, it seems Selena has.
