In the wake of the news, fans of the two A-listers were so excited by the unexpected collab. “selena x drake?? The best collab,” one fan tweeted, while another wrote, “let’s hope a duet is next.” It comes hot on the heels of Selena’s latest acting project Only Murders in the Building, a series set to debut on Hulu. The show also stars Aaron Dominguez, and Selena recently had to confirm again that the pair aren’t romantically involved.
When asked about it by the Los Angeles Times, Selena offered a candid reflection on how the intense media attention and scrutiny of her love life has made it practically impossible to date. “We had just started working together. I honestly thought, ‘No wonder guys don’t want to date me!’ I think people only care because I’m young,” she theorized.
“And the older I get the less they’ll care,” Selena continued. “For now it’s a part of the job that I don’t really like. I’m actually grateful that I’m not involved with anyone right now.” The pair are set to play love interests in the upcoming series, and PDA photos of the pair in character practically broke the internet. After confirming she and Aaron are just pals, Selena gave fans an idea of what to expect from the show, during an Instagram Live session in February. “The show is actually really fun. It’s kind of a dramedy, so there’s moments that are real and then there are other moments that are complete chaos and hilarious.”
