We’ve all been caught smack dab in the middle of an embarrassing moment, but for celebrities, these awkward photos are then plastered all over the web for the rest of us to gawk and sometimes laugh at. It’s not fair that celebrities are forced to live their lives underneath a microscope, and if the rest of us were followed around 24/7 with cameras shoved in our faces, we’re pretty sure we would be caught in some pretty unflattering angles at some point in time, too.
Selena Gomez is one celebrity who is literally hounded by the press. At one point, the pressures of the industry became too much for her, and she was forced to take a break and remove herself from the public eye. Growing up as a child actress and transforming herself into an internationally-known superstar means there are more than a few photos of Selena that have been captured throughout the years. Many of them show the world just how beautiful she really is, while others photos definitely make us cringe.
Keep reading to see 15 photos Selena definitely doesn’t want the world to see.
A Little Hairy
We all skip out on shaving from time to time, but at our hairy armpits aren’t making headlines, right? For Selena, her underarms, in all their hairy glory, were plastered all over gossip websites as soon as this photo was taken. The singer and actress was promoting her movie Spring Breakers, and when she stopped to take a photograph with her fan, she exposed a bit of stubble in her armpits.
Perhaps she was too busy traveling and promoting the movie to tend to her normal grooming habits. I’m definitely not going to fault her for slacking on the upkeep because we’re all mammals, and mammals are supposed to have hair, so what’s the big deal?! In this photo, Selena’s proving that she’s just like the rest of us, and even with her unshaved pits, she’s still technically flawless. On top of that, she’s very sweet to her fans. You just can’t beat that.
We’ve all worn outfits that we later regretted. But thankfully, we’re able to burn those photos, delete them from our Facebook photo albums, and pretend they never even existed. But for celebrities, all of their unflattering outfits are saved online for eternity.
This particular outfit has us really scratching our heads. Selena’s normally such a fashionista, so I’m finding it pretty unbelievable that she actually thought this outfit was a good look. There was a point in time when wide belts were all the rage in the fashion community, and girls were wearing the accessory above their natural waist. I’m not going to rag on Selena’s belt, but it’s the shirt that she paired with it that’s confusing. These belts looked much better when worn with a cute dress, not a T-shirt! And don’t get me started on her tights. I’m just going to pretend like I didn’t even see them.
