Selena Gomez Posted a #nomakeup Selfie

One of the worst things on Instagram is the #nomakeup trend. First of all, half the girls who post selfies with that hashtag are MOST DEFINITELY WEARING MAKEUP. Second of all, does anyone really care that you’re not wearing makeup? I’m not sure what the statement is supposed to be there – that you look good without it? That you’re “brave” enough to show your hideous beastly face without covering it up in layers of foundation, powder, mascara, blush and God knows what else? Meh, I just don’t get it.

Selena Gomez decided to join in on the fun by posting her own #nomakeup photo on Instagram on Saturday and… you know, whatever. She looks nice, I guess? I’m not sure what the reaction here is supposed to be. She looks like a normal human being. Bravo! The pose is a little try-hard, but she’s in that “desperate to be sexy” (but not slutty!) phase right now, so we’ll give her a pass.

I think we can all agree the best thing about this photo is the girl in the background. That reaction! Now that’s a picture I want to see.

Selena Gomez Hopes to Be Happy By 30

Selena Gomez seems to be doing okay in life. She finally got rid of that Canadian thorn in her side, she’s not slutting it up, gets along with everyone pretty well… it’s all coming up Selena. The only problem is, with everything going so well, she doesn’t really know what to do from here on out.

Asked by Jared Leto (LOL why) in an interview for Flaunt what her life goal is, she said:

“Oh, God. I don’t know. I hope that I’m really happy by 30.”

I mean, I guess it makes sense that a 21-year-old wouldn’t really know what the hell they want to do with their lives – I only sorta did even at 25, and it took me a bit longer to get on that path. However, what’s kinda said is that she’s not happy now. What’s wrong, girl? You’re rich, you’re conventionally attractive, you’ve got a pretty tight family… what’s not to love? (Yes, I’m being facetious, if that wasn’t abundantly obvious.)

Also, how YOUNG does Selena look in this photo? God, she’s got the face of a baby!

Listen Up: Selena Gomez Is No Slut

I enjoy the fact that Selena Gomez is still hanging on to her pure-as-the-driven-snow Disney image, in a lot of ways (yes, I know ‘Come and Get It’ was anything but, but you know what I mean). What I don’t particularly like is the fact that while she’s proud of her status as a lady your family might like to meet, she simultaneously shuns those that are anything other than that.

From Teen Vogue:

“So a part of you is broken when that’s gone. And part of you wants to have that rebellious feeling where you’re just like, forget it – I can do anything I want.

[But] I’ve tried it, and I’ve never been that girl. I’m always going to be the girl you want to take home to your parents, not for the night.”

Well, that’s cool, Selena. I’m with you on that – I have never had a one night stand and never could. I’m too emo for that shit, so I feel you. However, I know people who are into more casual encounters and while it’s not my style, I won’t really hate on anyone whose it is.

Before y’all hop on the Feminazi train, I’m not at all saying that Selena is slut-shaming or openly bashing anyone, but unfortunately the implication in quotes like this – because of how women are viewed in society at large – is that it’s good and virtuous to be a prim and proper young lady and not so much to be anything else, because that just makes you a slut, and ew, who wants to be a slut?

I’m so torn on this! It’s not like she hasn’t had her share of feminist dialogue before…
