"Wishing to be Bella Hadid": Selena Gomez Experiments with TikTok Filter

TikTok has proven to be a platform for celebrities to showcase their creative side, and Selena Gomez is no exception. The 30-year-old actress recently tried a filter inspired by supermodel Bella Hadid, which transformed her appearance to resemble the beauty.

"I wish I was as pretty as Bella Hadid"

At the beginning of the clip, Gomez wrote a caption expressing her admiration for Hadid's looks. The filter then took over, and the actress playfully introduced herself as the supermodel. "So my name, my name is Bella Hadid," she said in a teasing tone.

Reality Check: "Instead, this is me"

The next shot showed the "Lose You To Love Me" singer without the filter. She humorously acknowledged that her attempt at beauty was not entirely successful. "Instead, this is me. I accidentally laminated my brows too much," she stated, followed by a chuckle.

Gomez then emphasized her real identity with a sultry tone, "My name is Selena Gomez. See, it doesn't even sound s*xy."

Common Ground: Both Dated The Weeknd

Despite the playful jest, the two brunette beauties have more in common than one might think.

Both Hadid and Gomez have had romantic relationships with musician The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye). The couple dated from April 2015 to November 2016, and then the singer moved on to date Gomez from January 2017.

"Love Hurts, But You Have to Pull Through"

In an interview with Teen Vogue, Hadid opened up about the heartbreak she experienced from the "first" and very "public" breakup.

"As an outsider, you might think I handled it so well, but it's always in your heart, and you always feel it very heavily. It'll be hard for a while. Love hurts, but you have to pull through," she said. Selena Gomez's TikTok video serves as a lighthearted reminder of the beauty in self-expression and the common ground shared by two successful and beautiful women.
