Spelling “Palestinians” with Selena Gomez: a Joan Rivers-inspired production

Joan Rivers thinks “that college grad” Selena Gomez can’t spell the word “Palestinians”:

What follows is an evaluation of Selena Gomez’s real-life spelling abilities. Take it away, Spell-ena!

But first, a disclaimer: I am aware that the ability to spell does not make you intelligent, and the converse is certainly true as well. It’s about how you choose to express yourself, it’s all your own and I can spell, it comes naturally, it comes naturally — or it doesn’t. Selena could certainly be an excellent speller, even if not — as Joan pointed out — a college grad. So let’s find out!

First, and most obviously, we know Gomez can spell Gaza — that’s kind of how this whole thing started:

But that’s a four-letter word. How about some other ones?

F-A-V-O-R-I-T-E

Y-O-U

This is America, speak English.

W-A-N-T T-O

D-R-E-A-M-I-N-G

#-M-Y-F-A-C-E-T-H-O-U-G-H

P-R-E-A-C-H-I-N-G

G-I-R-L-S-‘, T-A-L-K-I-N-G, M-O-R-N-I-N-G

I-‘-L-L

T-H-O-U-G-H, grammar

W-O-R-D/W-E-I-R-D (pick one)

M-Y

Not sure how to help here. Friends + Fans + z?

M-O-R-N-I-N-G

P-A-R-K-I-N-G

L-A-D-I-E-S-‘

I-T-‘-S, I-T-‘-S, M-O-R-N-I-N-G

W-H-I-P-P-E-D

B-E-L-I-E-B-E

I think it is safe to conclude that if Selena has trouble with simple words like the ones cited herein, she could not possibly spell “Palestinians.”

Joan 1, Selena 0.
