“Kinda Crazy” by Selena Gomez
The lyrics of Selena Gomez’s “Kinda Crazy” find her addressing an ex-boyfriend. Whether or not it is one of her real-life famous exes is not specified. But perhaps time will tell considering the details she gives about what transpired between the two of them. And what she is harping on specifically is this individual possessing some unfavorable interpersonal skills. In fact she has basically come to the conclusion that he is “kind of crazy” – and “not the good kind” of crazy.
Indeed the way the story reads is that she was at first fascinated by his personality. But as time progressed he starting “acting super shady”. This of course implies that he was cheating. And considering that Selena Gomez has used common terminology and themes throughout her “Rare” album, it is very much possible that the ex-boyfriend she is more or less dissing throughout is in fact one particular individual.
And within the context of this particular song, what she is calling him out for specifically is initiating their romance but then trying to flip the script by displaying a degenerative character towards her.
