      Selena Gomez is on a 70s kick. She has just released a Bad Liar visual inspired by the decade, with the singer rocking a Farrah Fawcett wig, paisley prints, and a handlebar moustache (... we'll explain that part later). The blast to the past makes sense — one of the most infectious parts about Bad Liar is its pulsating sample of Talking Heads's 1977 single, Psycho Killer.

      Touted as a "film," the sepia-toned project is directed by Jesse Peretz (who has directed multiple episodes of Girls and Orange Is the New Black). In it, a young girl watches from afar as her dad cheats on her mother with the gorgeous, blonde girls basketball coach. But here's the twist: Gomez plays all four characters.

      This is actually the second visual for Bad Liar. The first one was directed by Petra Collins and exclusively released on Spotify. The colorful, low-fi video featured Gomez wearing a hospital bracelet that had some believing she was glamorising a suicide attempt. Gomez later clarified that the bracelet was actually from a recent lupus-related hospitalisation.

      And this may not be the sole Jesse Peretz x Selena Gomez collab we receive. The video ends on a mysterious note, a notice that something called Fetish is coming soon. Bad Liar might just be the start of a longer narrative.
