Selena Gomez’s heart gets her in-trouble in the video for ‘Back to You’

Selena Gomez isn’t tired of the same old love

It officially the start of the era for Selena Gomez…again. Yesterday, the former Disney actress delivered the music video for her song off of the soundtrack for her show “13 Reasons Why.” It’s been awhile since Selena released a music video for one of her singles. The last one was for her song with marshmello called “Wolves.”

The video for “Back To You” follows suit with how she made the videos for “Bad Liar” and “Fetish.” It’s extremely artistic and tells a story that adds to the overall story that the song is telling. It’s pretty much Old Selena meeting the new classier Selena. You get the classic sound with the storytelling that has made her two videos up there with her past work.

Because it is an artistic video, it is a little too much to grasp in the first viewing. It’s going to take a while for you to soak up the tea that Seleners is spilling in this video. She is spilling soo much tea that it’s not even funny. The video is about Selena being at a party with one boy, a boy that looks like The Weeknd. She ends up sneaking off with another bad boy, who looks like Justin Bieber. The two steal a car and end have a picnic. She soon realizes that her new boy is wanted by the police and that he isn’t worth going to jail for. They end up going back to the party before doing it all over again. 

The video itself isn’t bad, just leaving you wanting more. Either way, I’m all for this new Selena era. I want more from it whether it’s like “Bad Liar” and “Fetish” or this one.

’13 Reasons Why’ lives up to expectations set by the first season

Hannah Baker might be dead, but her story continues in season two

After months of waiting, the next season of the controversial Netflix original series “13 Reasons Why.” Following suit with the first season, this season looks to continue with the story and the drama that made it as a massive hit. Instead of tapes, it looks like a picture will be worth a thousand words this season.

Season two of “13 Reasons Why” follows the events that took place after season one. The trial has begun as Hannah Baker’s parents sue the school for their part in the suicide of their daughter. As the students take the stand, the other side of what happened to Hannah is shown.

Inside of Hannah being a narrator, the characters that took the stand in each episode. They were the focal point of the episode. This was used to tell the backstory of the events on their tape. Because the book only covered the first season, season two was new and original material. I liked the way they did the second season because it allowed you to see the entire picture. You got to see more of the characters and know more about them. It fleshed out everything so much more.

Because you find out more about the characters, you like them more. Hannah and Clay are still the stands out characters. Their actors kill it this season, again. If I had to despise just one character, it would be Bryce Walker because frankly, he’s a massive toolbox full of douches. There’s no redeeming quality to him. His mother is the best part of the Walker family tree.

This season is extremely watered down compared to what was presented in season one. The show still tackles the same subject but it’s less intense than season one. There are some intense moments but they aren’t every episode. I appreciated this because I found myself enjoying the show more because it wasn’t an emotional rollercoaster. It wasn’t making me an emotional hot mess. I was able to fully enjoy the show.

The season finale was extremely satisfying. It acted as a series finale if they decided to end the show after this season. I hope they do continue the show just because there’s so much more they could tell with these characters. It was glad to see the characters get a happy ending after all. Even if the happy ending is short-lived.

The verdict

The second season of “13 Reasons Why” will leave people divided. Some will say that it’s not necessary but it honestly was. It fleshed out more of the story. It was nice to find out what happened afterward. Sure, it was watered down from the first season but it still told the story it needed to with the same amount of importance. It also covered a lot more topics.

How to you should watch ’13 Reasons why’ and not be depressed

It’s almost time to watch the new “13 Reasons Why”

With the newest season of “13 Reasons Why” come out tomorrow, I thought I would share my recommendation on how you should go about watching the newest season. I really haven’t seen anyone post about this and I think its something that should be mentioned. Frankly, everyone is going to try to binge watch it and I’m going to tell you why you shouldn’t.

If you haven’t seen the first season of it, then you need to watch that first. You wouldn’t read the second book of the series without reading the first one. When you watch the show, don’t binge watch it. If you try to binge watch the show, you will be an emotional mess. The show is extremely intense and not even the thickest-skinned person would be able to survive a binge watch of “13 Reasons Why.” 

What I did when I watched the show was I would watch two episodes, and then I would switch to a happier show, movie, or something that wouldn’t make me feel depressed. It didn’t really help but it was all this emotion bottled up at one time. It helps take some of the feelings away but it will constantly linger. “13 Reasons Why” will mess you up but it’s all in a slightly good way.

“13 Reasons Why” will make you take a look at how you interact with people. You will regret all the bad interactions and take pride in the little interactions that might have saved that person’s life. It will leave you having a better respect for people and have you looking at the bigger picture. Watch “13 Reasons Why” with an open mind. Don’t just rule it out or quit it just because you think that Hannah Baker was “weak.” You never know who would be your Hannah Baker. Your interactions could impact their life. Take the message and use it to make sure yourself better. Especially if you were similar to one of the characters that affected Hannah Baker negatively.

Selena Gomez returns with a banger from ’13 Reasons Why’ soundtrack

Seleners gives the world another “Back to You” song

It’s been seven months since Selena Gomez has given the world any sort of music. That song was a banger with Marshmello called “Wolves.”  Now, Selena has released a pre-order track off of the soundtrack for the second season of “13 Reasons Why.”

“Back to You” is a classic Selena Gomez pop song. It’s similar to the last couple of songs she has done with Kygo, Zedd, Marshmello, and her debut solo album “Stars Dance.” It starts off with a very nice acoustic guitar melody before kicking into EDM mode with the chorus. The guitar during the entire song is everything. It adds more depth to the song that the EDM wouldn’t have given it. It makes “Back to You” more emotional.

The lyrics are about going back to a love constantly. Let’s just address the muscular and ripped Elephant in the room whose penis we have all saw. Many people believe that the song is about Justin Drew Bieber. That is right, The Jelena Saga continues. If you have lived under a rock since 2010, Selena and Justin have been more off and on than a light switch at a whorehouse. They recently got back together in November 2017 and ended in March 2018. People are thinking the song is about him just because of lyrics of the song. Oy vey. I’m over Jelena. Back to regularly scheduled programming.

“Back to You” isn’t a bad song at all. In fact, it’s a certified bop. My only complaint about it is that seems more like a step back than anything else. If you look like “Bad Liar” and “Fetish,” they are a totally different style than what we got with this song. The new style was everything but this just seemed like she wanted to go back to what made her musically.

Overall, “Back to You” is a catchy and lovely bop that is just in the wheelhouse of Selena. I just wish it was less of classic Selena and more like the Selena we got before her hiatus. I like classic Selena but I liked this new Selena better. She seemed like she gave no fucks.
