Selena Gomez Makes Fun of Her Met Gala Spray Tan While Meeting Fans

By  | 

Everyone expected Selena Gomez to come out and slay the Met Gala red carpet hard this year, but she instead showed up rocking a too-dark spray tan that some people said was blackface.

The 25-year-old reportedly “felt great” in person, but when she saw the pictures from the event she realized the whole look didn’t translate as well as she hoped.

“Me when I saw my pictures from MET,” she captioned a funny Instagram video poking fun at the whole situation last week.

Me when I saw my pictures from MET ??‍♀️

But the jokes didn’t end there! SelGo was meeting fans at Puma’s Defy City Los Angeles event yesterday when one Selenator commented, “Oh my god you look beautiful!”

“Thank you so much. I fixed it from Met Gala,” she quipped back as she gestured to her less-tan skin before cracking up.

It’s pretty clear that Selena wasn’t the biggest fan of her bronzed Met Gala skin, but you know what they say — if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em!
