Selena Gomez looks gorgeous wearing tan bustier top and denim pants, stuns in new mirror selfie after VMAs meme fiasco


Selena Gomez makes headlines from time to time by merely existing. The pop star was most recently in the news for her appearance at the 2023 edition of the MTV Video Music Awards. Her expressions from the star-studded musical awards ceremony went viral and Gomez turned into a meme yet again. For the unversed, the string started when she first shared a picture of herself wrapped in a blanket. The image instantly became a meme online.

This was followed by her appearance at the Inter Miami vs LAFC game where her shell-shocked expression gave birth to another meme. The VMAs incident saw several of her reactions going viral including one about Chris Brown and Olivia Rodrigo. The singer recently posted a mirror selfie wearing a tan bustier and she looks stunning in the image.
