Selena Gomez was recently cast as gay Peruvian mountain climber Silvia Vásquez-Lavado, and given her past relationships with prominent celebrities, we know that she’s not gay. However, the internet has taken by storm with fans now wondering if she’s bisexual.
Singer and actress Selena Gomez has had her fair share of high-profile relationships from Justin Bieber to Nick Jonas. Still, after she was cast as famous gay Peruvian mountain climber Silvia Vásquez-Lavado in the new biopic, fans are wondering about her sexuality.
While there have always been rumors that Selena Gomez is bisexual, she has never made any public revelations regarding her sexual orientation as of yet. Let’s attempt to understand the singer’s sexual identity.
Is Selena Gomez Bisexual?
Selena Gomez has spoken extensively about mental health and sparingly about sexuality, but she hasn’t explicitly stated, “I am bisexual,” so anything we would conclude is merely an assumption. Selena doesn’t have to declare her love to the world, but playing an LGBTQ+ character has undoubtedly brought her back into the spotlight and led to rumors from fans.
Selena responded, “I think everyone does, no matter who they are, when asked whether she ever questions her sexuality in a Q&A with PrideSource in October 2015. Yes, I do, of course. Absolutely. I believe it is beneficial to reflect on your true self, to challenge yourself, and to ask yourself tough questions. Selena inspires us all because she is honest about wondering who she is.”
Although we oppose outing anyone, there have been reports of Selena hooking up and dating other women in several internet and gossip media. One of the most enduring memories is when there were rumors that Cara Delevigne and Selena Gomez were dating after the two were spotted having fun together in a bar and on vacation in the French Riviera. Since Cara is out as bisexual, it was inevitable that romance rumors would surface, and Selena even admitted that she “loved it!”
Are the rumors about Selena being bisexual true?
One of the most well-known instances is when Selena Gomez’s relationship with Cara Delevigne was rumored to be going on after the two were seen dancing together in a pub and on a trip to the French Riviera.
Rumors of a relationship between Cara and Selena were unavoidable because she is openly bisexual; Selena even stated that she “loved it!” In addition, the rumor that Selena dated Charity Baroni, her backup dancer, was widely investigated by the gossip website ExposingMSG.
Selena began posting multiple pictures of herself with Charity in 2013 with the hashtags “mine” and “my…” According to reports, several dance crew members spotted Selena and Charity kissing, and when questioned, Selena referred to Charity as one of her “girl crushes.”
Additionally, Selena and Julia Michaels, who is closest friends with Selena, shared pictures of themselves in 2019 sporting identical tattoos and sharing an intense kiss. If Julia were a boy, there would undoubtedly be rumors of a relationship, according to one fan, who added, “Wow, this is such a cute friendship.”
