Selena Gomez expressed nothing but admiration for Bella Hadid in a recent, self-effacing TikTok. In the since-disappeared February 21 video, Gomez experimented with a filter designed to emulate Hadid’s facial features, one that thinned out her nose, gave her an eye lift, plumped her puckers and added a smattering of freckles across her nose. Gomez mouthed over a viral sound utilizing the supermodel’s voice, “So, my name is Bella Hadid.” Making it clear this was a tribute to the model, the “Only Murders in the Building” star’s on-screen caption read, “I wish I was as pretty as Bella Hadid.”
In a following clip, Gomez does a face reveal minus the filter, saying in self-deprecation, “Instead, this is me. I accidentally laminated my brows too much.” The actor also said, “My name is Selena Gomez,” commenting that, this time, “it doesn’t even sound sexy.” Gomez even added an additional self-critique to followers: “Also I need a lint roller guys.”
Only days ago did another one of Gomez’s TikToks make a splash for clapping back at body-shamers. Going live on the platform on February 16, Gomez addressed comments about her fluctuating weight. Having been open about her lupus diagnosis for a while, Gomez explained that her medication tends to make her hold and lose water weight off-and-on. “I would much rather be healthy and take care of myself. And my medications are important,” she stated firmly. Yes, girl.
