Selena Gomez: Perfect Meaning
Kiss me, but your kiss don't taste the same
Is it real or am I going out of my mind?
Curious 'bout the company that you keep
'Cause I hear you talking 'bout her in your sleep
And now you've got me...

Selena is a side piece, and she can't help but feel how distanced her guy (that's cheating with her) is when they're together. He is physically present and yet emotionally absent, lost somewhere with his main chic. Selena is envious of how much he loves his girl, so she can't help but imagine how perfect she should be to have such an effect on him. She is even willing to copy and be more like her, just to have a taste of the love they share

From my interpretation from the song, Selena struggles to face her inner demons and insecurities. Selena is aware that she is being cheated on, yet remains in a toxic relationship and wants to change - be more like the main chick who is ‘perfect’. This is one of Selena’s most personal songs that reflects upon her insecurities and fragility. She wants to be customise herself to be this ‘perfect’ women that he loves so much. Selena can feel that her man is being off with her and wants to ultimately be this girl so that her man will love her. She questions and doubts herself to the point that she wants to change herself and be this vision of perfection.

So did this song end up being about Hailey? Selena said in an interview that she really felt all these feelings and that it was almost too personal to put in an album for the world to see...

Selena is being cheated on and like most girls who get cheated on, she wonders what this other girl is doing that she isn’t.
“Maybe I should be more like her”. Selena feels if she wore more like this other girl he’d love her and want her just the same.
This song is deeply sad and is a true reflection of what cheating on someone can do their self reflection.

Her bf is cheating on her and she thinks that the other girl is perfect and she knows hes cheating on her and so thats why his kisses dont taste the same because they have been on another girl and she knows that and it makes her upset.

Selena Gomez thinks that her boyfriend is cheating. She thinks she is perfect but he doesn't. He sees another girl perfect. Because of him constantly repeating so, Selena started to want to be like that girl to please because she loved him with all her heart.

Selena thinks she should be more like the other girl bc Sel thinks she's perfect and sees how head over heels her boyfriend is
