We never thought we’d ever say this but… 5-year-old Selena Gomez is the sassy diva we all aspire to be! 

The singer’s mum, Mandy Teefey, posted the sweetest video of her from 1997 talking on the phone about her first day of school and it is everything. 

Teefey explained in the caption that she was calling her daughter from work to find out about her first day of school, and luckily, someone caught it all on tape.

“My teacher said I gotta do all this stuff again!” Gomez adorably states in the video. “I gotta do it by myself!”


“My sassy, independent, boss lady, adorable gigantic piece of my heart, first born love,” Teefey captioned the home video. “Gracie [her five-year-old daughter] is exactly like this. Diabolical. XO. My girls are born leaders. Why do they grow up? Her sweet little eyes and massive eyelashes.”

Only a few months ago, Selena visited her childhood home in Grand Prairie, Texas. “The home I grew up in, from birth to 13… (no one was home when I knocked this time lol) I visit this place every chance I get,” she wrote.


“In many ways it very well could have been better than my life today, but I’m grateful for a voice that can enable change today,” she noted. “Even when I don’t know how to do it well or actually want it. I love you Grand Prairie. Thank you.”

Is it just us or did this video make your day?
