After teasing the short film earlier this week, Selena Gomez has officially released the music video for her recent single, "Bad Liar." Directed by Jesse Peretz, the Seventies-esque video follows a young Gomez in school, where she has confusing interactions with a cast of characters also played by Gomez, including a male principal (who may or may not also be her father), a mysterious woman with Farrah Fawcett hair, and her own mother.

Our interpretation is that her father is the principal, who she sees flirting with another woman, causing Gomez to be bashful and avoid her mother when she gets home. Things get confusing, though, when she falls asleep with a polaroid of the blonde woman. Perhaps she has her own crush on the blonde woman, or maybe she's jealous of her father's affections? Gomez did tease the video by posting the polaroid to her Instagram stories saying "let's get weird tomorrow."

In the last few seconds, she teases another project, apparently titled "Fetish." Watch the music video and attempt to decode it for yourself below.
