Kill Em With Kindness Lyrics

The world can be a nasty place
You know it, I know it, yeah
We don't have to fall from grace
Put down the weapons you fight with
Kill 'em with kindness
Kill 'em with kindness
Kill 'em, kill 'em, kill 'em with kindness
Kill 'em with...

    Selena is slaying it in the music industry, in life, and in her looks. She has haters and people are jealous of her success. Selena is saying that although, yes, she might make mistakes and deal with adverse situations the wrong way, she is still going to own up to those decisions because they make her who she is. Yes, the literal translation of this song is, "treat everyone kindly, even those who have hurt you." But, I think it goes deeper than that. It's her emotions that need to be read between the lines. If you just take the song for what it is, a catchy tune by a great artist, you're missing out on a great song. I feel that Selena may be slaying it in life, but in a way, this song seems like a cry for help and she wants people to know that she's struggling.

    "I’ve been frustrated and pissed off before, but my mom has always taught me, every single time, turn my cheek the other way. It is always the best feeling waking up the next day going, 'They gave me their worst, I gave them my best, and that's all I can do.'"
    — Gomez on the message behind the song

    It puuzzles me that she meant if heaters should be treated kindly whatever it is or we can be killed with fake kindness. Anyway i Love her so much.

    I think this song means to show people your kindness and to stand taller than them. This song did help lots of people to always be kind no matter what, or who.

    give mean people so much kindness that they won't survive as a bad person anymore... their soul will transform

    is that a cheesy interpretation?
