Selena Gomez, the Disney sweetheart that is loved by all, showed off her feisty side in her performance at the recent 2013 MTV Movie Awards. Selena Gomez performed her new track “Come and Get It,” a catchy song with Indian influences.
Gomez said her new album is more mature and has inspiration from music from all over the world. The song has an Indian/Middle Eastern melody with a tabla beat. Her Bollywood-esque/Arabian Nights style performance was amazing and she performed bare foot which added to the tribal feel they seem to be going for.
She looked great but she was NOT wearing a sari, like many journalists falsely state. Her red dress, red lipstick and dark eye-make up gave her a sultry look which fans are not used to. Gomez was also wearing a red bindi, and not just for the performance, she has been wearing that bindi for a while now! She’s even worn it to shows and interviews after her MTV Award performance! The Universal Society of Hinduism has spoken out against it, because they felt it was an insult to the importance of a Bindi which is traditionally worn by married women. They’ve even asked for an apology! Yikes!
What do you guys think, is Selena Gomez being offensive?
