Selena Gomez goes full Eddie Murphy in the Bad Liar video

Bad Liar is a song about trying and failing to suppress your desires (specifically romantic desires, although it works equally well as an account of the emotions I encounter when passing a Krispy Kreme store).

So it makes sense that the video puts the lust in clusterfuck - as a schoolgirl catches her father flirting with her teacher, for whom she also holds a torch, while navigating her hastily-fracturing family life. It has the makings of a pretty good film... except Selena has opted to play all four main characters, with the unfortunate result that her "father" looks like a six-year-old in a trenchcoat. It's a distraction that spoils what could have been a clever, witty video.

Fortunately, the song is still a supple and slyly catchy pop gem.
