Fans Rage After Selena Gomez Replaces Ariana Grande’s Magazine Cover w/ Hers
Selena Gomez and Ariana Grande are, arguably, two of the biggest pop superstars in the world right now. Ever since they rose to fame on Disney Channel and Nickelodeon, respectively, people have tried to pit the girls against each other, with only slight evidence (Ari allegedly shaded Sel for lip-syncing at a Jingle Ball concert a few years ago) to back up their theories. All has been silent on the AG vs. SG front for quite some time now, until Ms. Gomez decided to get sneaky.
The 24-year-old celebrity recently covered Vogue magazine‘s April 2017 issue and, as expected, was super excited and proud. Selena obviously wanted people to see the mag, so she decided to cover a bunch of others on display with her own.

The action was
obviously most likely meant to be a joke, but not everybody was laughing — especially not Arianators, who noticed one of the magazines Selly covered was the 23-year-old singer’s Cosmopolitan cover. While some people tried to remind fans that the “It Ain’t Me” crooner covered everything and didn’t mean to target Ariana specifically, stans were not willing to forgive so easily.

Yikes. Can’t we all just get along?!
All the worst things Selena Gomez said about other celebrities:
Yes, Dems and Selena have been BFFs for a very long time, but that doesn't mean Selena can't throw shade her way from time to time. In fact in 2013, the Spring Breakers actress gave Demi a backhanded compliment when talking about her drug problems. "I'm very proud of Demi and her being able to accept the challenges she went through, but also for staying a good role model to people who do struggle with the things that she's gone through," she told reporters.
"I've always been taught that you are who you surround yourself with. So if you surround yourself with good positive people you can only do good things for them and they can only do good things for you. It is frustrating at times when certain things are being said, but other than that I'm just a normal girl living a normal life," she added. Oh, Selena you're better than that.
