Selena Gomez has been one of the hottest celebrity topics this week so far. She released a photoshoot for a magazine in which she showed off a new look never before seen on her.
Some artists change their looks and there isn’t a whole lot of controversy, (Lady Gaga comes to mind) but when someone changes skin tone, hairstyle, and proportions of their body seem a bit off, fans tend to take notice.
In addition to the covers shown on the Instagram for the magazine (which we’ve inserted below) Selena also posted exclusive shots on her Instagram.
‘Interview Magazine’ has a history of polarizing images though that isn’t really what they aim for. Often their covers are the perfect opportunity for celebrities to try something new. Apparently that is exactly what Selena wanted!
This photoshoot has been a bit of an odd one. On one hand, we see Selena in a unique way, and on the other, some don’t think it is very flattering.
The singer was quoted saying this about her shoot, ‘I’m so young and I’m going to keep changing, and no one has the right to tell me how my life’s going.‘
As mentioned before, not everyone likes the look for Selena. We’ve included some comments from unhappy fans below. (Note we don’t share their views, we are just quoting)
‘This new look makes her look like someone else :/‘ – diario_gitano (Commenter)
‘that is not Selena lol‘ – ayawashingherhands (Commenter)
‘Who the hell is THIS????‘ – itsjada21 (Commenter)
‘why does she look black?‘ – seasonalaffectivedisstrack (Commenter)
‘gurl, WHO is THAT⁉️‘ – seanscotty (Commenter)
Although Selena has received criticism for a very different look, there are many positive comments as well.
Yep, quite a few fans shared how much they love this gritty look on Selena. We tend to agree with fans who like her look, any kind of new appearance on a celebrity is always awesome! (Especially when it is Selena Gomez!)
After she shifted from Disney channel styled music and appearances, fans have slowly but surely gotten used to ‘adult’ Selena Gomez.
‘I LOVE THIS PHOTOSHOOT AND INTERVIEW ?? WOW‘ – dailydoseofself (Commenter)
‘Selena Gomez is literally half-Indigenous Mexican. I don’t wanna see anyone talking about the fact that she looks tanned or whatever, y’all clearly haven’t seen her dad’s family. if she’s been seen looking more pale recently it’s just cause of her lupus.‘ – justinsxpurpose (Commenter)
We will be covering Selena’s ‘Boyfriend’ Music video shortly, for now, just know that the video released four days ago and has nearly 20 million views. Along with being one of the freshest beats we’ve heard in months, the music video is one of the most creative we’ve seen in a long time!
Her ‘Rare’ Album is doing extremely well, and this latest addition to the music she’s been rolling out is fantastic!
We’re eager to see some more releases soon, stay tuned!
