About

Selena Gomez Crying is a reaction image and photoshop meme based on a still shot of American teen pop idol on the brink of crying during a radio interview in December 2013.

Origin

On December 9th, 2013, the LA-based radio show The Hot Hits uploaded a video to their official YouTube channel[2] featuring Selena Gomez. In the video, Gomez is presented with the winning video submission from the “biggest Selena Gomez fan” contest hosted by the program, which makes the singer emotional to the verge of tears. As of March 2014, the video has over 1 millions views.



Then on January 1st, 2014, a newly launched Twitter account using the handle @SELENASADMEZ[1] tweeted a still of Gomez’s eyes welling up with tears from the interview clip, adding “when you open your christmas presents and its not concert tickets.” As of March 2014, @SELENASADMEZ has over 4,700 followers.




Spread

On January 1st, 2014, Twitter account @CryingGomez[3] sent out its first tweet, an image of Gomez crying with the caption “when you write a good tweet and it’s more than 140 characters.” Throughout January, the Twitter account continued to showcase photoshopped images featuring Gomez’s teary-eyed face (shown below). As of March 2014, the Twitter account has over 24,000 followers.



On March 12th, BuzzFeed[4] published a post titled “The Selena Gomez Crying Meme Is Literally Applicable To Everything That Could Ever Happen," compiling the best use of the crying Gomez as a reaction face in text messages and tweets. On the following day, the international news site IB Times[5] also reported on the photoshop meme.
