Selena Gomez made it pretty clear a few days ago that she was in need of a change.
Following a concert in Indonesia, the 24-year old scared fans a bit when she posted a lengthy note on Instagram.
It made references to how she felt “unauthentic [and] unconnected to both myself and my music.”
Gomez wrote that she felt “stagnant” in life and that she needed to “rethink” certain areas of her life.
Here. Take a look at the full message below:
It’s unclear just what prompted this self-diagnosis from the superstar, although it’s safe to assume it had something to do with the beating she took the week before on social media.
Soon after Kim Kardashian outed Taylor Swift as a liar by sharing a video of Kanye West clearing lyrics to “Famous” with Swift, Selena jumped on Twitter to defend her best friend.
Upset over all the grief Swift was taking, Gomez wrote:
“There are more important things to talk about… Why can’t people use their voice for something that f-cking matters?”
Her frustration was understandable at the time, but many Internet users turned the question around and asked Selena why she only took this stance when her pal was under attack.
It’s not as if Selena goes around using her enormous social media following to enact any kind of change in the world, they argued.
Based on the mini meltdown illustrated above, it seems as if this criticism really hit home for Gomez.
So this is a long-winded way of confirming that Selena has undergone at least one kind of personal makeover since opening up to her fans:
She has a new hairstyle!
Upon touching down in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for the latest stop on her Revival Tour, Gomez shared a trio of photos on Instagram.
As you can see from these examples, Selena now has choppy bangs and wild waves.
And she seems to feel pretty good about herself:
It’s so nice to see her smiling again, isn’t it?
What do you think of Selena’s fresh look? Was it time for her to change things up? Did she do so in order to attract Justin Bieber once again?
And why do you think she broke down on stage over the weekend?
Relive that unfortunate incident below while you consider her new look.
