Selena Gomez still hasn’t forgotten about that fake Met Gala tan.

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.”


Me when I saw my pictures from MET 🤷🏽‍♀️

Gomez’s comment wasn’t her only candid moment at the PUMA event. The artist also shared a video of her asking to hold a toddler—resulting in the little one grabbing onto the parent.

“I don’t know what to do!” she replied.

Just keep being you, Selena.
