Selena Gomez gives a shout-out to nurses grooving to 'Boyfriend' in TikTok video: 'This made me smile'
Two nurses have shown their love for the new Selena Gomez song 'Boyfriend' by pulling a few dance moves on TikTok. Gomez has taken notice of the clip and shared it on social media, linking to the TikTok video of a nurse named Kala.
'Boyfriend' is the first single off the deluxe edition of her third studio album 'Rare' (which released in January), and the LP's fourth overall single. The song released on April 9 while its official music video released the following day.
Gomez wrote about the nature of the song on Instagram. "It's a lighthearted song about falling down and getting back up time and time again in love, but also knowing that you don't need anyone other than yourself to be happy," she said.
"We wrote it long before our current crisis, but in the context of today, I want to be clear that a boyfriend is nowhere near the top of my list of priorities. Just like the rest of the world, I'm praying for safety, unity and recovery during this pandemic," she added.
It seems the nurses have picked up on the "lighthearted" spirit behind the song. In the 15-second clip, we see the two healthcare workers pulling some cute dance moves to the pop star's song after pointing out the words "SINGLE" and "NOT TAKEN" on each other's PPE.
On April 25, Gomez wrote a comment on the video saying, "This made me smile so much!! Thank you to every single medical professional on the frontlines. You guys are heroes."
Gomez has shown great regard for healthcare workers and first responders since the coronavirus pandemic started. On March 31, Gomez decided to send donations to the staff of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, the non-profit Los Angeles hospital where she underwent a kidney transplant in 2017. The songstress revealed on social media on March 31 that she is making a donation to the hospital to help provide crucial coronavirus medical equipment for doctors and nurses who are working overtime to treat patients. At the time, she said, "So thankful for every single medical professional who is putting their health on the line to take care of others."
