Selena Gomez Reveals She Feels ‘the Safest’ With Boyfriend Benny Blanco

Selena Gomez‘s love is turned on all the way for Benny Blanco. To celebrate the Thursday (Feb. 22) release of her new single “Love On,” the 31-year-old singer-actress opened up to Zane Lowe for Apple Music 1 about the person in her life who’s been giving her heart eyes lately.

“Without getting into too much detail, I think it’s just really important to meet someone that respects you,” she told Lowe of her ongoing romance. “And I think it’s really nice to also lean on someone who understands the world that I live in.”

Though the Only Murders in the Building star didn’t name Blanco specifically, she’s been very open on social media about their relationship. The pair first went public in December, with Gomez confirming via Instagram comments that she and the producer had been dating for six months at that point. In January, they snuggled up courtside at an L.A. Lakers game, then attended the Emmys together a couple weeks later.

Earlier this month, Gomez commemorated Valentine’s Day by posting a selfie with Blanco and writing, “I love you.”

“I’d have to say overall, it’s the safest that I feel and it’s been really lovely,” the Rare Beauty mogul added to Lowe. “I’ve only grown through it, so it’s awesome.”

Gomez is currently in the throes of her new musical era, which kicked off in August with the release of her comeback song, “Single Soon” — which just so happens to have been produced by Blanco. Debuting at No. 19 on the Billboard Hot 100, the track marked the “Lose You to Love Me” artist’s first proper English-language solo release since 2020’s Rare.

This week, Gomez dropped “Love On” alongside a new music video. “I’ve had a lot of fun lately, or I should say in the past few years, just experimenting and finding what those little ear charms are and that’s what they feel like to me,” she told Lowe of the new track.

“And I just have loved the song and I am so eager and excited, and I want people to feel good when they listen to it,” she continued. “That’s what I want to hear on the radio now.”
