Selena Gomez wowed the crowd at last night’s MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto, hammering home the point that the 18-year-old Disney star has definitely bounced back from her recent hospitalization!
And the presence of boyfriend Justin Bieber, who grew up about two hours west of Toronto, at the show also seemed to have done wonders for her spirit!
Style-savvy Selena dazzled the crowd with a number of wardrobe changes, ranging from an ensemble of red heels, navy short shorts and a white halter top, to a shimmering gold gown, to a black and red nightgown-like gown.
Selena was full of energy from the moment she arrived on the red carpet, running up to fans, signing autographs and shaking hands.
And she sheepishly announced her love of Canada, which was perceived as a wink to her relationship with Canadian-born Justin.
“You guys may not know this, but I love everything about Canada,” Selena said in her opening monologue. “Hockey, I play. Back bacon? I just ate some backstage. And it’s just fun to say ‘Saskatchewan.’ Basically, I love Canada.”
Moments later, she presented Justin with his first award. “Selena? Nice to meet you, I’m Justin,” he said with a grin. “You’re very beautiful. Maybe we could go out sometime?”
Presenting duties aside, Selena also wowed the crowd with her performance of her band’s song “Who Says,” for which she wore yet another outfit!
And Selena isn’t slowing down! She tweeted Monday morning, “On the road promoting [my film] Monte Carlo out in Theaters July 1st!!” Her next gig is Monday afternoon, when she performs at Pennsylvania’s King of Prussia Mall near Philadelphia.
