During the Philadelphia stop of her Stars Dance tour, the brunette beauty told concertgoers that making the transition from squeaky-clean child star to adult songstress has definitely come with hurdles.
Just before singing her hit “Who Says,” the 19-year-old explained that she’s had to face endless criticism but isn’t going to buckle under pressure.
“I get it all day, every day. I’m not sexy enough, or I’m not cool enough, or if I did this I would be accepted,” she shared to the crowd of screaming devotees.
“Let me tell you one thing: The sexiest thing…is class.”
Gomez’s powerful message echoes Rashida Jones‘ Twitter rant aimed at other female celebrities.
“This week’s celeb news takeaway: she who comes closest to showing the actual inside of her vagina is most popular,” the Parks and Recreation star wrote earlier this week.
“There is a whole generation of young women watching,” she explained. “Sure, be SEXY but leaving something to the imagination.”
The 37-year-old then added, “Let me clarify. I don’t shame ANYone for anything they choose to do with their lives or bodies…BUT I think we ALL need to take a look at what we are accepting as ‘the norm.'”
Looks like these two ladies are on the same bandwagon.
And between Nicki Minaj‘s pasties parade, Rihanna‘s bathtub confessions and Miley Cyrus‘ well, everything it seems, there certainly has been an influx of skin-baring stars lately.
