Get all the deets on Selena and Amy’s newborn friendship HERE.
Selena Gomez presented an award to comedian Amy Schumer at the Hollywood Film Awards, but it was extra special for the Good For You singer. Selena is a huge fan of Amy’s! Amy Schumer, if you aren’t already familiar, is a comedian whose jokes can sometimes be raunchy and mature, but always keeps it real which we love. She’s a huge advocate for body positivity and women’s rights, and her jokes are relatable to the point where you find yourself screaming “YASSSS” at the screen. So when Selena said she’s a huge fan of Amy’s work, we weren’t surprised but we were definitely excited.
“Amy, you’ve inspired me not to take myself too seriously when I sit on my couch and I’m depressed about certain things. You constantly made me feel like I’m a bad [bleep] even though most of the time I’m not. You say the things I wish I could say and you never ever make me feel bad about anything I do in my personal life,” Selena said.
During an interview with Zach Sang, Selena opened up more about why Amy inspires her.
Amy loves Selena too and was grateful for her kind words and even put Sel in one of the sketches on her Comedy Central show! Watch “Down To Earth” from “Inside Amy Schumer” below.
These two ladies are both hugely inspiring in different ways with their work, so we hope that this isn’t the last we see of this friendship.
