Selena wore a bindi while performing her hot new single ‘Come & Get It’ on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ on April 16. After she wore one at the MTV Movie Awards, she came under fire with a religious group. Do YOU think it’s offensive?

Selena Gomez, 20, rocked the stage at the MTV Movie Awards on April 14 with her sultry performance of “Come & Get It.” She was wearing a bindi and danced, Bollywood style, in a heavily choreographed number. On Ellen, the performance was more subdued with no dancing, but again, she rocked a bindi. What do you think about her sparkly new accessory?

Selena Gomez’s Performance On ‘Ellen’

Selena looked gorgeous wearing a blue Versace dress. Her hair was stunning straightened! She wore a small bindi on her forehead. Do you think she should stop wearing the spiritual symbol?

Universal Society of Hinduism Asks Selena Gomez For Apology

Selena has been asked to apologize by the Universal Society of Hinduism. Hindu statesman, Rajan Zed, told PerezHilton.com:

“The Bindi on the forehead is an ancient tradition in Hinduism and has religious significance. It is also sometimes referred to as the third eye and the flame, and it is an auspicious religious and spiritual symbol… It is not meant to be thrown around loosely for seductive effects or as a fashion accessory aiming at mercantile greed. Selena should apologise and then she should get acquainted with the basics of world religions.”

What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Should Selena stop wearing a Bindi as an accessory?

I don’t think that does make any sense! Even I am a Hindu, why do people take this as a wrong intension! If you wear a ‘Bindi’ as an accessory doesn’t mean you’re disrespecting the culture!

People need to chill out with this crap…how many people wear the Christian Cross as a fashion or decorative piece and they aren’t even religious. She’s done a great job with the song and has helped share a little piece of beauty in Indian music and fashion. This is probably why Hollywood struggles with the Indian market. We’re by far the most critical people ever!
