Who is Justine Skye? Singer Shades Selena Gomez in Snapchat Stories, Says Account was Hacked

I start by saying, Justine Skye and Hailey Beiber are best friends, and Selena shared a longtime relationship with Justin Beiber. Coming back to the recent controversy, it seems like the two best friends did cross some boundaries. Read on to know who is Justin Skye and what is the recent controversy.

Who is Justine Skye?

Justine Indira Skyers, known professionally as Justine Skye, is an American singer. Skye, whose initial fame was from Tumblr, found a career in the music industry and signed with Atlantic Records at the age of 19.

The 25-year-old singer was born in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, New York City to Jamaican parents. Her mother Nova Perry, an entertainment lawyer, is of Afro-Jamaican and Indo-Jamaican descent and her father Christopher Skyers, a corporate merchandiser VP is Afro-Jamaican.

Justine’s grandfather N. Nick Perry is a politician, who is set to become the United States Ambassador to Jamaica. Skye first gained notoriety in her teens when she tagged along with her mother to a music panel held by performance rights organization BMI. During the Q and A, Skye stunned the panel by asking to sing. She performed a cover of Sam Sparro’s “Black and Gold”

Justine Skye’s Career


Justine Skye started her professional singing career when she performed songs to go with the book  “Rules To Rock By”. She is known for having made a cover about “Headlines” by Drake which received 2 million views on YouTube. In 2012 she released her very first mixtape, Skye High.

As she continued on her rise to fame, her debut seven-track EP, Everyday Living, helped her land a deal with Atlantic Records in 2013. Her song “Hard Work” landed on BET’s 106 & Park Top 10. She released the album Emotionally Unavailable in 2015. During that time she made the song, produced by DJ Mustard, “Collide” which featured the rapper Tyga.

In October 2015, Skye performed at TIDAL10X20, an event created by Jay-Z and at a Tommy Hilfiger show in Brazil. She has also made television appearances including an appearance on the final episode of House of DVF.

In 2016 she left Atlantic and signed to Roc Nation and Republic Records. In December 2016, she released her EP 8 Ounces, which featured artists such as Wale. Her debut album Ultraviolet was released on January 18, 2018.

In the same year, she shared the video for “Build” on Instagram with an accompanying message that described an unnamed abuser who hurt her mentally and physically. In early 2021 she announced that her third studio album, Space & Time.

Justine Shades Selena Gomez

The contemporary R&B artist Justine Skye has been an inseparable part of Hailey Beiber’s close-knit friend circle for years now. This explains her beef with Gomez, who shared a long relationship with the “teen idol” Justin Beiber.  This time, Justine crossed some limits.

Skye’s controversial Snapchat story has received backlash from Selena’s loyal fandom. In the story, she wrote, “Making TikToks every day like you haven’t got a sh*tty makeup brand to run? Hmmm… Just whack as hell.” The Kill Em With Kindness” singer, however, denied posting such a story.

Justine Skye addressed the controversy and deflected blame, claiming that her account has obviously been “hacked.” She also mentioned that she had not posted on Snapchat “for years.” However, Selenators were quick to rebut, asking her why she was blocking them if she was innocent in the matter. Here are some of the tweets:

This is not the first time that the 25-year-old singer became a source of controversy.  In 2017, she kneeled down during a portion of her singing of the National Anthem at the Barclays Arena in Brooklyn, New York at a Brooklyn Nets game. Do you think Justine deliberately shaded Selena? Or was it Hailey who asked her to do so, eh?
