It’s a bindi bonanza! Selena made headlines for wearing a bindi in April 2013 and, for no apparent reason, on Jan. 23, the bindi is back! Do you love this look?

Selena Gomez, 21, broke out her bindi! She was spotted wearing the South Asian head decoration at a gas station in Tarzana, Calif. on Jan. 23. Is her beauty statement a trend or a no-no?

Selena Gomez’s Bindi — It’s Back & Better Than Ever

Selena wore a bindi at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, on Ellen, and during a performance on Dancing With The Stars while promoting her song “Come & Get It.”

Selena had so many people talking, she explained the decision to wear the bindis on New York radio station z100:

“I think the song has that Hindu, tribal feel and I wanted to translate that. I’ve been learning about my chakra and bindis and the culture — it’s beautiful,” she said.

Selena’s Bindi Offends Some

In April, Selena was actually asked to apologize for wearing bindis. The Universal Society of Hinduism 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.”

Do you think it’s cool or crazy that Selena is wearing a bindi again, HollywoodLifers?

It’s an offense against the Indian religion unless you are Indian and you wear it. Frankly I thinks she looks stupid.

So, while the kid’s play there game of “notice”, the man becomes more obsessed with the idea that some thing that isn’t.. is. Man becomes irrational and unable to explain his own thoughts, because to the outside eye, it is unnoticeable because kid’s are tracking man on internet.. with cookies.. and making him believe something that isn’t.

Man becomes more “obsessed” or actually truly “obsessed”, but it is with the idea that something is, that isn’t.. based on visual confirmation of “notice”. Granted, if man was not already “obsessed” then there is no way to create a greater “obsession”, but this wouldn’t justify games being played in order for kid’s to get kicks.

So here’s the scenario, man gets “obsessed”.. kid’s get bored, kid’s hack man’s account and or follow family members, then.. reference small little things in interviews and or photos that have to do with recent events in man’s life.

There’s a part of me that truly thinks that these rich folks practice some strange voodoo/witchcraft garbage, but I don’t know. Also, this girl had a guy that was obsessed with her and murdered his whole family. I’ve thought about this and looking at the kid’s behavior toward her and his total disregard for law, and I wonder if him and this girl actually played a part in ruining that man’s life. It wouldn’t take much to hack a man and get in his computer, manipulate things, make him feel crazy. Not to mention, people’s email’s and social accounts get hacked all the time. I still don’t know about these two.

And this is, my dear children, is called cyber bullying. Exhibit A shows cyber bullying towards a celebrity that will never find out about it, and Exhibit B shows direct cyber bullying towards a person who probably will.
