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?

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?
