Selena gave a seriously sexy and feisty performance at the April 14 MTV Movie Awards, but many fans slammed her Bollywood performance on Twitter for being culturally insensitive. Is this totally unfair?
Selena Gomez stunned the audience at the MTV Movie Awards with her sexy performance of “Come & Get It,” but not everyone loved it! Wearing a bindi and dancing like a Bollywood star, Selena has come under fire for “cultural appropriation.” Do YOU think her performance was culturally insensitive?
Selena Gomez’s Performance: Culturally Insensitive?
Selena, 20, gave her first live performance of “Come & Get It” at the MTV Movie Awards, and she began with a scarf over her head, before pulling it out and starting her sexy show.
Selena wore a bindi on her forehead, she danced barefoot and she did an Arabian nights style dance routine.
While her performance was fun and sexy, many people took to Twitter to accuse Selena of cultural appropriation.
Fans Tweet About Selena Gomez’s Performance:
“HOLY WHAT THE F**K SELENA GOMEZ. LET’S TALK ABOUT SOME F**KING CULTURAL APPROPRIATION #NOTOKAY” wrote @RitaTherPita.
“selena gomez makes the horrible cultural appropriation surprisingly not-sexy” said @xstripes.
“Deal Selena Gomez the bindi is not just some fashion accessory you can throw on, cultural appropriation man” wrote @nat_dee.
“so did like no one think to tell selena gomez beforehand that her entire performance was eight kinds of super bad cultural appropriation????” said @diannamv4.
“Selena Gomez, take that bindi of your head, cultural appropriation is not cute. And neither is your singing.” wrote @realanisha.
I thought Selena’s performance was fun and sexy, and Arabian nights was a cute theme. I don’t think it was offensive, but she certainly upset some people!
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Do YOU think Selena’s performance was offensive?
