Don’t look at her now.
Selena Gomez is not impressed by the internet making fun of the faces she made in response to Chris Brown’s nomination for the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards and Olivia Rodrigo’s performance at the awards show on Tuesday.
“I will never be a meme again,” Gomez, 31, wrote about her Instagram story Wednesday.
“I would rather sit still than be dragged for being myself. All the best,” she said goodbye.
The “Single Soon” singer’s terrified appearance during Rodrigo’s performance went viral on social media Tuesday night.
The “Vampire” singer’s stage purposely fell apart as curtains fell from the sky, fiery pyrotechnics went into action and a man dressed all in black led Rodrigo out of the planned chaos.
A camera trained on Gomez during the performance captured her covering her ear and watching in concern.
Later in the night, Gomez, who won Best Afrobeats for “Calm Down” with Rema, said made a stinky face when Brown was mentioned as a nominee in the Best R&B category.
iHeartRadio Australia posted the moment on Instagram and invites his followers to see it for themselves.
An unimpressed Gomez commented: “Who cares lol.”
However, a source familiar with the situation told The Post on Wednesday that Gomez “definitely wasn’t mad after the show” and was looking forward to it Participation in a small after party.
The Post has reached out to Gomez’s representatives for comment.
Gomez has been open about her controversial relationship with social media. In 2021, she deleted Instagram due to health reasons. “I say this because it’s a big, big reason why I feel like I’m as healthy as I have been,” she told WWD Beauty Inc. “I don’t know anything about what’s going on in pop culture, and that makes me really happy. And maybe it doesn’t make everyone else happy, but for me it really saved my life.”
She continued: “To be honest, I just thought, ‘That’s too much information.’ This is too much of my personal life scattered all over the place and it just felt uncontrollable. I felt like my thoughts and everything I consumed revolved around a million other people in the world saying good and bad things. And I just thought, ‘Why should I – I don’t have any of this.’ Nothing gives me life.’ And I just snapped and was over it. I wanted to delete it entirely, but my team was smart enough to convince me not to. But I’m glad I didn’t because it’s such a wonderful way to stay connected and as I move forward it makes me happy knowing that I’m just being completely honest and true to myself. ”
