People have been showing up in record numbers to cast their early votes at the 2020 election, and Timothée Chalamet is one of these. The celebrity waited predicated on Saturday, October 24 to vote New York City, where he passed the time by chatting with the one and only Selena Gomez.
“Right now, I’m literally voting at my early voting station in New York at Madison Square Garden, which feels particularly metaphorical because I’ve seen many great things happen here,” Timothée told Sel throughout their Instagram Live conversation, introducing her to a few of his “line buddies,” with whom he had been awaiting for approximately one hour. “It’s really moving to see this many people show up. It feels like people are motivated and everyone’s telling young people to vote.”
Timothée took a moment to praise Selena for her own efforts in getting the vote out; the singer-songwriter was vocal over the last couple of months about the value of engaging in the election, and she shared her own “I voted” decal selfie a couple of days back.
“I’m really proud of you,” that the Little Women celebrity informed the singer. “You’ve been all over this stuff and I know it’s making a difference. I feel like you’re really on the curve…and it’s really important. I’m inspired.” Timothée later announced “Selena for President, 2024,” and TBH, we’re here for this.
Selena was busy this weekend discussing the election. In addition to her IG Live conversation with Timothée, the “Rare” singer talked with Stacey Abrams at a livestream on Friday, as a member of those She Se Puede Latinas Make a Difference Tour 2020. During their dialog, Sel opened about why she chose to utilize her stage to inspire others to vote, especially those in younger age brackets. “A part of why I wanted to do so much around voting and around getting my generation going is because I believe that my generation specifically gets distracted and there’s so much going on in the world,” Selena clarified, per Billboard. “This is the one time that we can make a difference.”
