Selena Gomez is accused of stealing from another artist in her ‘Back to You’ video
The visuals are eerily similar
by Ari Bines
When Selena Gomez began uploading stills from the video for her latest single "Back to You", we were psyched to see Selenerrr releasing something super cute and non-Petra produced.
But upon further inspection, there's an undeniable similarity between her visuals and work by photographer Sarah Bahbah.
Sarah Bahbah is known for shooting photos of her subjects doing mundane tasks like they're happening in real time, complete with relatable captions coinciding with the emotions of the image. And Selena's video concept is virtually identical.
Fans on Twitter were lightning fast to call out the similarities
Not trying to hate but they are not unique. Check out Sarah Bahbah’s work. Selena’s latest video is way too similar to hers to be considered unique

Selena Gomez really needed to hire Sarah Bahbah for her recent insta posts. Sarah Bahbah’s work is 🔥

Bahbah caught wind of it and posted her feeling about the video to her Instagram story
I'm not too sure if Sarah Bahbah is willing to call her lawyers over stolen creativity, but I do know I'd be spitting mad if such a mainstream artist did that to me. Couldn't afford to give Sarah a shoutout, Selena? That's messed up.
