Pop star Selena Gomez gets flak from fans for topless photo shoot
US singer-actress Selena Gomez's risque and topless photo shoot for V Magazine has made some of her online fans very uncomfortable.
Her "Lolita" look had many fans calling it inappropriate as they believe she had been purposely made to look younger than her years, reported The Daily Mail. Gomez is 22.
A Twitter feed dedicated to the star called SelenaGomezWatch wrote that the shoot had been branded as 'disturbing' due to her childlike appearance.
One fan said: 'How disturbing is @selenagomez' topless shoot for @vmagazine? She looks like an absolute 12-year-old. What is up with that make-up?"
One fan on Twitter wrote: "Can't tell (if) that Selena Gomez V cover has Lolita written all over it or is it just because she has a baby face?"
Another fan Twittered: "Ummm...this is beyond creepy. Not only does she look 12, they styled her like a 12-year-old. The hat and the little bows on her hair while topless, not okay."
NOT DISNEY KID ANY MORE
Wearing only high-waisted denim shorts on the glossy magazine cover while covering her breasts with her hands, Gomez has come a long way from her days as a Disney child star.
Another picture had her long hair hanging over her bare chest, with a single red polka-dotted bow clipped to the side of her head.
In the accompanying interview, she did not talk about the shoot but discussed her past relationships. She has an on-and-off relationship with Canadian pop star Justin Bieber.
She also spoke about the downsides of being in the public eye, reported The Huffington Post.
She said that over the years, their relationship has been the subject of tabloid scrutiny, which Gomez said causes her anxiety.
There were a few months when she did not leave the house as much as she was a little depressed.
"I think I drove myself crazy for a little bit. It was just easier to say, 'Hey, do you mind running to the grocery store and picking some stuff up, I don't want to get photographed?'" she said.
"I think the next time will be much different...which will definitely not be anytime soon... I was 18 years old, and it was my first love."
Gomez's issue of V Magazine hits US newsstands on Thursday.
