Selena Gomez debuted a fresh-faced look in a teaser video for her new song — and the look has people talking more than the song itself.
Although a full-length “Fetish” music video isn’t available as of yet, clips of Gomez singing can be seen in a Spotify video and on Instagram.
What really sparked people’s interest though was a snap that her makeup artist, Hung Vanngo, shared. The pic is an extreme closeup of Selena’s face with a splatter of faux freckles across her cheeks and nose. Although the post was promoting the song, the comments almost solely focus on her freckles.
“Fake freckles,” one Instagram user bluntly wrote.
“She doesn’t have them in the (Spotify) video,” another stated.
“She looks better without.”
While many were adamant that Selena doesn’t have freckles, a few believed that Gomez’s splatter of speckles was real.
“A lot of people can develop them at any age especially from being out in the sun and then they can disappear! People are just rude,” wrote @stunningselenamg.
“Omigod how beautiful some people are without makeup and the freckles!” @edisabelle wrote.
No matter how the freckles got their, the majority of comments were supportive of Vanngo’s impressive makeup skills (Gomez does look flawless) and praised the singer for the new look.
“We all know Selena doesn’t have freckles but clearly maybe she wanted to try them out. That was her choice. There is no need for you brats in the comments to come on Hung’s page and attack him. Get a life,” advised @stunningselenamg. Meanwhile @earianabuteraw said “Omg them freckles got haters shook CTFU iconic. Keep doing your amazing job @hungvanngo king of Selenation. We love you.”
@meeshambhavi_ took a more diplomatic approach: “Who cares about freckles when it is about Selena Gome?z”
With #Frecklegate on full blast, people seem to have forgotten that Gomez is a master of switching up her style. Last month, the flawless brunette gave us blond feathered locks reminiscent of Farrah Fawcett’s iconic Charlie’s Angels blown-back waves for her music video “Bad Liar.”
For the video, Gomez took on four different roles — a father, a mother, a daughter, and a gym teacher who both the father and daughter secretly have a crush on.
We cant wait to see what Selena comes up with next!
What do you think about the faux freckles? Is it a look you’d try out for yourself?
