Selena Gomez adds humor to the VMAs with a cheeky comment on a red carpet snapshot alongside Taylor Swift.
Hollywood, September 13, 2023 – Selena Gomez, a familiar face in the public eye since her early days on “Barney and Friends” in 2002, continues to captivate her audience not just with her talent but also with her sense of humor. In a recent Instagram post, she brought humor to the forefront as she shared a photo taken with her close friend, Taylor Swift, at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) held on Tuesday.
In the snapshot that captured the two stars sharing a joyous moment, Gomez playfully captioned it with, “She looks stunning, I look constipated. Typical.” Her self-deprecating humor added a charming touch to the red carpet glamour.
While it’s true that Gomez’s expression might resemble that split second when you’re caught mid-sneeze, it only enhanced the candidness of the moment, making it all the more endearing.
Taylor Swift, who dominated the VMAs by taking home eight out of ten awards she was nominated for, including Artist of the Year, Video of the Year, and Song of the Year for “Anti-Hero,” was visibly thrilled for her friend Selena Gomez. Swift blew kisses as Gomez took the stage to accept her own award for Best Afrobeats for her collaboration with Rema, titled “Calm Down.”
Gomez didn’t just limit her expressions to the red carpet. On her Instagram Stories that night, amid the celebrations and her self-proclaimed “constipation face,” she added a text-only slide that read, “I will never be a meme again. I’d rather sit still than be dragged for being myself. Much love.”
Apart from her playful social media presence, Gomez has been keeping herself busy with various projects. She’s currently starring in the third season of “Only Murders in the Building” on Hulu, and she’s recently released her new single, “Single Soon.” It’s impressive how she manages to juggle all these commitments and still find time for some good-natured self-irony.
Selena Gomez’s ability to find humor in everyday moments and share them with her fans makes her not only a talented artist but also a relatable and endearing personality in the entertainment world.
