Selener, also known as Gotta Keep An Eye Out For Selener, is a slang term and catchphrase that emerged from a 2012 song named "Beauty And A Beat" by Justin Beiber, featuring Nicki Minaj. The original phrase is sung by Nicki Minaj and the term "Selener" was used to refer to singer and actress Selena Gomez, who was rumored to be dating Beiber at the time. In the following years, the phrase entered stan and mainstream slang, often captioned alongside images of people with crooked eyes or strange facial expressions.


On October 12th, 2012, the official YouTube channel for Justin Beiber uploaded the music video for his track "Beauty And A Beat," featuring rapper Nicki Minaj. The video gathered over 1 billion plays in nearly a decade (seen below).[1] At the 3:18-minute timestamp, Nicki Minaj says, "But I gotta keep an eye out for Selener" in reference to Selena Gomez, Beiber's then-girlfriend.[2]

The word "Selener" was then added to Urban Dictionary[3] on October 24th, 2012, where it was defined as "someone we gotta keep an eye out for." The post gathered over 1,200 likes in over a decade (seen below).
