Selena Gomez called ugly after she shared a video of herself, drunk, celebrating her 31st birthday on a yacht.
Selena Gomez, the multi-talented American singer, actress, and businesswoman, recently found herself at the center of a social media storm. The Disney star was labeled “mid” by a user known as Ali on the X “everything app” (formerly Twitter) after she posted a video of herself yachting with friends. The video, which appeared to show Gomez in high spirits, sparked a flurry of comments and reactions from fans and critics alike.
Born on July 22, 1992, in Grand Prairie, Texas, Selena Marie Gomez has been a prominent figure in the entertainment industry since her early days on the children’s television series Barney & Friends. As a teenager, she rose to prominence for starring as Alex Russo on the Disney Channel television series Wizards of Waverly Place. Alongside her television career, Gomez has appeared in numerous films, including Another Cinderella Story, Monte Carlo, and Spring Breakers, and voiced Mavis in the Hotel Transylvania film franchise.
Gomez’s musical career is equally impressive. She released three albums with her former band, Selena Gomez & the Scene, all of which reached the top ten of the US Billboard 200 and were certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Her debut solo album, Stars Dance, topped the U.S. Billboard 200, while its lead single, “Come & Get It,” reached the top ten in the US Billboard Hot 100.
Despite her successful career, Gomez has not been immune to criticism. The recent video, likely a celebration of her 31st birthday on July 22nd, drew mixed reactions from social media users. Ali’s comment, “Mid if she asked me out I would respectfully decline,” received 150 likes but was ratioed by another user who responded, “she would never ask you out.”
Others, however, took a more positive view, with some users referring to the actress as a “milf.” The term, often used to describe attractive women who are mothers, reflects the admiration many fans have for Gomez’s beauty and style.
The controversy surrounding the video and the subsequent reactions highlight the scrutiny that celebrities like Gomez often face. Yet, it also underscores the power of social media as a platform for discussion and debate.
Gomez, who has been named Billboard’s Woman of the Year in 2017 and one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine in 2020, continues to inspire millions with her talent, resilience, and philanthropy. She has worked with numerous charitable organizations and served as a UNICEF ambassador since the age of 17.
Despite the recent controversy, Gomez’s celebration of her birthday with friends on a yacht is a testament to her ability to enjoy life amidst the pressures of fame. It serves as a reminder that celebrities, like everyone else, deserve to celebrate their personal milestones in their own way.
In the face of criticism, Gomez continues to shine, embodying the spirit of a woman who is not afraid to live life on her own terms. As she navigates the challenges and triumphs of her career, Gomez remains a beacon of resilience and strength, inspiring millions around the world with her talent, beauty, and grace.
Whether she’s on a yacht celebrating her birthday or on stage performing for thousands of fans, Selena Gomez continues to captivate audiences with her undeniable talent and charismatic personality. Despite the occasional storm, she sails on, proving that she is anything but “mid.”
