It would appear that Selena Gomez just can’t keep her hands to herself. (To be fair, she has been warning us since 2015.) Gomez, who stars in Only Murders in the Building and continues to release new music, combined her two great passions as of late: cuddling with apparent beau Benny Blanco and celebrating bestie Taylor Swift’s birthday.
Gomez, who has been spotted out with Swift several times in the last week and whose birthday wishes deemed her friend a “goddess,” shared a carousel of photos on her Instagram grid, featuring her cuddling up to both Swift and Blanco and one where she’s kissing Blanco.
“New York, my favorite moments w you this week,” she captioned the gallery.
The first photo features Gomez, Swift, a cake, and goblets of wine, evidently at one of Swift’s birthday celebrations. Other highlights pictured include hanging out with Blanco and friends in the company of some really cool wallpaper, watching How I Met Your Mother in a hotel room, an outing for high tea with pals, and, as a kicker, another smooch with Blanco.
Last week, Gomez went to bat for Blanco following mixed reactions to their pairing, defending him in comments on Instagram posts. Blanco is a producer and songwriter who has worked with Gomez and many others, including three of Gomez’s notable exes: Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, and Charlie Puth. Responding to Instagram comments, Gomez called Blanco “the best thing that’s ever happened to me” and “still better than anyone I’ve ever been with. Facts.”
Gomez has recently been sporting a diamond-encrusted ring with a capital B on it, and has posted photos of herself and Blanco several times on her stories recently. This most recent Instagram share is something of a modern relationship milestone: Congratulations, Benny Blanco, you’ve been promoted to the grid. Big moves.
