Selena Gomez might be one of the most-recognizable people of her generation. Gomez was a singer on Barney, a teenage star on the Disney Channel, and eventually, an international pop star. Selena is a great singer and actress with a beautiful, distinct voice and the face of an angel.

Recently, she surprised her fans (and the world) with two new songs, "Lose You to Love Me" and "Look at Her Now." Unlike "Lose You to Love Me," "Look at Her Now" is an upbeat pop song that makes you dance. This song is about her past relationship, where she has been a victim of cheating and has now risen up from that heartache. It's about not letting anyone get you down. In the music video, she mentions that the song is a reminder to rise up to life's challenges.

Of course she was sad

But now she's glad she dodged a bullet (mmm)

Took a few years to soak up the tears

But look at her now, watch her go

— Selena Gomez ("Look at Her Now")

I'm a million trick pony

The number one and only

On a scale of 1 to 10, I'm at 11

Turn pain into a paycheck

Should see me in a sundress

I do it all with ease, I should give lessons

Get kicked to the curb, ya kicked out

Never kick a girl when she kicked down

Who you gon' kiss now?

Know you gon' miss how I move from the top

To the bottom of my kicks now

Album: Thank U, Next

This upbeat pop song exudes confidence and that "I am in charge" aura that's so powerful. It emanates the independent, boss-minded, and strong-willed image of modern women who know what they want and won't take crap from anybody. While this song has gained a fair amount of backlash, because of the accusations of cultural appropriation, we cannot deny how many girls feel confident when listening to this song.

Been through some bad shit,

I should be a sad bitch

Who woulda thought

it'd turn me to a savage?

Rather be tied up

with calls and not strings

Write my own checks

like I write what I sing, yeah

— Ariana Grande ("7 Rings")

without you, boy, I'm stronger

have a cold heart

But it was your game that left scars

Ooh, I'm over you

I'm the pudding in the proof

Gotta blame it on my juice
