After a fan told her she looked beautiful at PUMA‘s Defy City event in Los Angeles, the 25-year-old singer referenced her controversial look by saying she “fixed it from Met Gala.” She also gave a grimace that further summed up her sentiments.
Two weeks ago, the “Bad Liar” singer raised a few eyebrows by showing up to the 2018 Met Gala looking tanner than usual. Her look generated a slew of negative comments on social media.
“Terrible spray tan,” one Twitter user wrote .
“whoever did Selena Gomez’s tan needs to be fired immediately. Wwwwoooooowwwww,” added another .
Makeup artist Hung Vanngo addressed the look in a statement.
“After seeing Selena’s dress for the Met Gala, we decided to go for a warm, glowy makeup look with dramatic, golden eyes and a nude lip,” he told James News.
However, even Gomez seemed to regret the tan. Two days after the soirée, she posted a picture of her running away in her gown and wrote, “Me when I saw my pictures from the MET.”
“I don’t know what to do!” she replied.
Just keep being you, Selena.
