Selena Gomez posted and then quickly deleted an Instagram story in which the Lose You To Love Me singer could be seen wearing a piece from Skims, Kim Kardashian's shapewear line. In the photo, Selena was wearing an onyx colored sculpting bodysuit, and the twenty-seven-year-old looked amazing, of course. The songstress also shared her opinion on the shapewear, calling it "legit" and expressing how comfortable she found the bodysuit to be, and made sure to tag Skims Instagram handle in the story too. So why did the Wizards of Waverly Place actress delete this perfectly innocent Instagram post?
Well, as much as Selena appeared to enjoy her new Skims bodysuit, she is one of Taylor Swift's best friends, and Taylor and Kim Kardashian have a long going feud. Therefore, Selena received a lot of backlash for her Skims appreciation post, after many of Taylor's fans called her out on promoting Kim K's brand, which they thought was disrespectful towards Taylor. Selena's fans, 'Selenators' were quick to defend the Hands To Myself singer, suggesting that she perhaps did not know Skims was Kim's brand. Others pointed out that there was no point in creating drama over the Instagram story since Taylor and Selena have a sold friendship that goes back many years.
As reported by Hollywood Life, Selena did, however, delete the Instagram story of her wearing Skims, and instead, the Spring Breakers actress uploaded a photo showing herself and Taylor Swift. In the post, Selena expressed her love for Taylor, calling the Look What You Made Me Do singer her 'ride or die' and said she would die for her.

“My ride or die”“I would die for this one”
“Thank you for forever being by my side. You have taught me so much, walked through all of this with me, STAYED & you remind me to be a better human being. I’m on your side for life.” pic.twitter.com/yEadZHT2Db
Selena also wrote that she will always be on Taylor's side, and thanked her for sticking by her and for having taught her so much. Selena and Taylor's friendship goes way back, all the way back to when they were both dating Joe and Nick Jonas from Jonas Brothers. They have publically praised each other's music since then, and Selena defended Taylor during the big fallout between her and Kim Kardashian over Kanye's lyrics to Famous.
Selena has not published anything explaining her original Skims post, but it is safe to assume that her friendship appreciation post directed to Taylor explains which team she is on.
