Selena Gomez’s Newest Project Is The Horror Film Of Your Nightmares

Selena Gomez is going full horror for her new project with director Petra Collins. While the two have worked together in the past on some of Gomez’s music videos (most notably for “Fetish”), their new project, A Love Story, well make your skin crawl.

Collins posted a clip of the project on his Instagram on Wednesday, and it’s definitely bizarre. It shows Gomez taking a bath with a disembodied face, and while it’s not exactly clear what’s going on, it is clear that something unsettling is happening.

The short film will seemingly be in conjunction with IGTV, Instagram’s new video platform that will allow filmmakers (and others) to upload hour-long videos, similar to YouTube. While the project has yet to be released, Collins did upload a few other clips to his Instagram story, including one where Gomez eats frosting off her legs with a butcher’s knife and another where she sucks on a human(?) eyeball.

Melissa Broder, author of The Pisces and So Sad Today, revealed that she’s also helping with the short film, so you know it’s going to be weird af (and somehow also perfect). Broder is known for her nihilistic wit and dark humor, which I’m sure will translate into the film somehow.

It’s a new era for Selena Gomez, and I’m already loving it. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.

“Everyone could use a book like this at some point in their life.” – Heather

Let go now

How do you tell your partner about a chronic skin condition?

Living with a chronic illness like Hidradenitis Suppurativa alone can be bad for your mental health. You owe it to yourself to find a significant other who wants to be there for you through good times and bad.
