We would never have thought this?

Everyone collectively lost their shit when hottie extraordinaire Selena Gomez teased a new song called Fetish. Our first thoughts were whips and chain and S&M and all that other bold stuff… but now it seems we picked the meaning up all wrong.

Selena revealed the true meaning of her new song in a recent interview, where she was joined by Petra Collins, director of the new video.

“I made it very clear to Petra that I didn’t see ‘Fetish’ how most people know the word at face value. When most people hear the word ‘Fetish,’ they think of S&M and all that sexual sh*t, but Petra didn’t.” Selena told Dazed Digital.

Artsy new IT girl Petra also divulged her own inspiration for the video that features Gucci Mane.

“Um, do you think people would be shocked to know that ‘Fetish’ came out of our discovery that we are both avid horror fans?” said Petra.

“When I first heard ‘Fetish,’ I pictured it to the backdrop of horror. It’s one of my favorite genres to make a female look strong.

“I love the video because it shows the very dirty, gross, and weird love you can have towards someone. This is how obsessive some people get and how they release. I’m obsessed with these weird ASMR videos. I think about how our bodies react to sounds and movement.”

There you have it, wash your mouth out!
