TGI鈥 almost Friday! We鈥檝e got a listen to Selena Gomez鈥檚 *fire* new single, Lena Dunham鈥檚 loyalty to Taylor Swift and more in today鈥檚 top news tidbits. Check 鈥檈m out below.

1. This love triangle is too good to look away from. After analyzing the previous tiny snippet we heard of Selena鈥檚 single, we were sure she might be singing about her ex, Justin Bieber. 鈥淪omewhere along the lines/We stopped seeing eye to eye/You were staying out all night/And I had enough,鈥 she sings in one part, and the rest of the lyrics don鈥檛 stray far from this sentiment. The Weeknd also just dropped a new song that seemed to be throwing some shade Bieber鈥檚 way, and Bieber seems to have rejoined Instagram just to throw subtle digs at the couple. Now, all that aside: The new Selena song is one of her best and most mature sounding songs to date, with a chopped-up chorus from producer Kygo that you might as well get used to know because you鈥檙e gonna be hearing this ALL over the radio. Welcome back, Selena!

2. Lena Dunham defended Taylor Swift鈥檚 silence about the election, saying 鈥減eople are nuts.鈥 Taylor Swift took a lot of heat during and after the election, with people wondering why she wasn鈥檛 speaking up in support of Hillary Clinton, given Tay鈥檚 stance on female empowerment 鈥 and her massive influence on young voters. When Lena was asked by Rolling Stone if the criticism was unfair, she said, 鈥淚 just think everyone has to do it their way. When I was lesser known, I was like, 鈥榃ho could not share their opinion?鈥 Then I found out that when you talk about politics, people straight up tweet you the floor plan of your house and say they鈥檙e coming to your house. You have to fucking watch it because people are nuts.鈥 (Photo via Christopher Polk/Getty)

3. Heidi Montag congratulates her former Hills co-stars on their pregnancies and reveals baby plans of her own. Lauren Conrad鈥檚 friendship with Heidi Montag might have went south on the Hills, but Heidi has since expressed no hard feelings and that she still hurts over how things ended. She鈥檚 doubled down on that sentiment in a video on Faithwire鈥檚 YouTube channel, wishing both Lauren and Whitney Port 鈥渁 huge congratulations鈥 on their pregnancies, saying they were both going to be amazing moms. She also revealed that her and husband Spencer Pratt have family plans of their own, and that while she鈥檚 eager to have kids, she can鈥檛 compare her life to others (too true, Heidi!). 鈥淚t stirs up excitement with what鈥檚 going to be coming up in my life hopefully soon too,鈥 she says. 鈥淚t hasn鈥檛 been the right timing for me. So I think in life it鈥檚 important for us to pray and prioritize God鈥檚 timing in our lives and not compare [our life] to other people鈥檚.鈥

4. Holy crap: Starbucks is releasing their version of ice cream coffee floats at certain locations. Yes, you read that right! Starbucks will start serving affogatos (that鈥檚 basically a shot of espresso over ice cream) at 10 of their more upscale Reserve bars in Los Angeles, Boston, Washington, DC and more. While the initial roll out is limited, it鈥檚 still a sign that these treats might be available more widely eventually. You can check out the full location list and Affogato menu at Thrillist.

5. Paid puppy leave is a now a thing at this company. Getting a new pet is a ton of work, and a brewery in the UK is now offering paid puppy leave for new dog owners to make the transition a little easier. BrewDog鈥檚 Puppy Parental Leave also enables staff to bring their pets to work after the paid leave has finished. 鈥淲e always want to raise the bar when it comes to offering our staff the best possible benefits,鈥 BrewDog co-founder James Watt said, according to Metro. 鈥淎t BrewDog we care about two things above all else. People and beer.鈥 Um鈥 what about puppies!?

6. Quote of the day: 鈥淢y sexual orientation is up for grabs, I guess you could say.鈥 Susan Sarandon gets candid about her sexuality and its openness in a new interview with Pride Source about Feud.

Would paid puppy leave encourage you to get a pet? Let us know over @BritandCo!
