Selena Gomez has called on world leaders including our very own PM Jacinda Ardern to "help everyone around the world fight the Covid-19 pandemic".
Reaching out to Ardern on Twitter she said, "Can we count on your support too? You've helped New Zealand fight Covid-19 domestically. Now we need your help globally to ensure everyone can access the vaccine."
Ardern has yet to respond to the tweet, while multiple people have replied to Gomez informing her that NZ has already begun its vaccine rollout programme - "The NZ government purchased enough vaccines for our Pacific neighbours. This was announced months ago."
Selena also reached out to other leaders, including US President Joe Biden, and France's President Emmanuel Macron, writing: "Please join me and send a message to France's Emmanuel Macron and other #G7 leaders asking them to pledge dollars or doses to help everyone around the world fight the Covid-19 pandemic. #VaxLive"
President Macron responded by thanking her for her powerful message.
We love to see Selena using her voice and platform to help others!
