Selena Gomez is charming, relatively scandal free, talented actress. What she is not, is a talented vocalist. Her performance at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards was sub par to say the least; it was straight up karaoke. And before someone claims that the dancing was reason for her lack luster performance, the dancing was not very rigorous at all. It would be understandable if she hit one or two bad notes with the routine, but an entire song of flat notes? Not okay.
Selena's new single is very Indian inspired, with the drums filling up the chorus and being its only real substance. She put on a PG-13 at sexiest inspired performance that would please everyone below the 12 year old threshold. She gave her best dance moves, and hopefully not her best vocals, and tried her best. But it still fell flat (literally).
The reviews for the performance have been unrealistically positive saying "Justin doesn't know what he's missing." But to be honest, he knows what he's missing. And it seems like this performance would've been an epiphany if anything.
