Benny Blanco: The Man in the Spotlight

Benny Blanco's stature in the music industry is formidable. He has worked with a pantheon of A-list artists like Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Halsey, Kanye West, Rihanna, Britney Spears, and Gomez herself. His 2018 album "Friends Keep Secrets" showcased his versatility and artistic prowess.

Selena Gomez and Benny Blanco collaborated on her 2021 hit "I Can't Get Enough." The song also featured Tainy and J Balvin.

The Selenators: A Fanbase in Flux

Blanco's past comments about "cookie-cutter pop stars" and his praise for Justin Bieber's authenticity in an interview with Zach Sang raised in 2020 eyebrows among Gomez's fans, the Selenators, who recalled his critique with a mix of curiosity and concern.

As the story unfolds, the Selenators find themselves in a whirlwind of emotions. While many are thrilled at the prospect of Gomez finding happiness, some recall Blanco's past remarks and remain apprehensive. The dynamic relationship between Gomez and her fans, marked by openness and mutual respect, makes this unfolding narrative all the more compelling.

However, there seems very little doubt on the Latina artist's heart. "He has treated me better than any human being on this planet," and "He's still better than anyone I've ever been with. Facts," she defended him.

Only time will tell who is right.
