Selena Gomez Didn't Follow Dua Lipa's "New Rules" And People Are Losing Their Minds

If you're wondering, "who is Dua Lipa and why would she care?" that's frankly inexcusable at this point. But if you need a refresher, she sings one of the greatest pop songs of our time — "New Rules" — which lays out the rules for interacting with an ex:

hello @selenagomez don’t pick up the phone you know he’s only calling cause he’s drunk and alone two don’t let him… https://t.co/TTC7ByfunS

Others had a musical recommendation for Selena:

Hey @selenagomez what do you think of the song New Rules by @DUALIPA because if you haven’t heard it I definitely believe you should

Selena Gomez obviously needs to give new rules a listen 😬

Some imagined a confrontation between Selena and Dua Lipa...

selena: hey, how ar- dua lipa: 3, DON'T BE HIS FRIEND YOU KNOW YOU'RE GONNA WAKE UP IN HIS BED IN THE MORNING AND IF YOU'RE UNDER HIM YOU A
