Selena Gomez’s MTV Movie Awards Performance Probably Made Justin Bieber Cry (VIDEO)

Wonder Woman 13

selena gomez mtv movie awardsDid you miss the MTV Movie Awards this weekend? Well if you did, you can still see the best part. All the talk this morning is about Selena Gomez's performance of her new single, "Come & Get It." She sang it live, she danced, and she looked like a boss. Way to go, Selena! It was a sophisticated performance that proved you don't have to go all obvious sexy vamp just to prove you're a grownup now.

Selena did a sort of Bollywood-themed dance, and it was sensual without being all butt-thumping, cleavage-baring, in-your-face sexy. And is it me, or was she channeling Beyonce a bit with the strutting? I thought it was killer. Just hope Justin Bieber wasn't watching, because this performance would have left him crying into his bong.

Okay, that said, there's the first part of the performance where she dances seated ... I don't know, it's not the best part. But that's just quibbling. It definitely picks up from there. Selena isn't the vocal or athletic powerhouse Beyonce is. (Doesn't anyone compare, really?) But she's got her own thing going on, and she looked like she was having fun.

Maybe I'm just an old, fuddy-duddy mom, but I was disappointed (see?) when Selena's new film, Spring Breakers, came out. Ugh, Selena, do we really have to rob banks in a bikini to prove we're no longer a sweet, innocent Mousketeer? But whatever. Young people, you know. They have to explore and push boundaries and all that. At least it's just a movie, and she's not having public meltdowns, unlike some people we know.

Anyway, rock on, Selena. This was fantastic.


Did you watch the MTV Movie Awards? Do you think Selena stole the show?

I think it was boring.

Her performance was decent, but her voice is just really not that good.

I thought it looked a little like she was lip-syncing.  Not that its a first for any performer.

Wow, reading the article and the comments left by others...REALLY??!!
As a mom to tween twins, I have had the pleasure of following Ms. Gomez's career for some time. She is incredibly talented, intelligent, down-to-earth, and best of all she knows who her fans are (and she keeps that in mind when performing). She is not overtly sexual, she dresses sexy without showing everything or being hoochied out, and she does NOT lip sync. I have been to her concert with my daughter, she put on a helluva LIVE performance, she engaged her audience, and even took time out after to greet fans, sign autographs and take pictures with them. To dismiss her, knock her down, call her voice weak, and compare her to use a favorite term of my kids...HATERS BE HATIN'. She is a positive role model, she has shown that you can be beautiful AND smart, that dedication to your craft and a strong work ethic will take you places. I'd choose her to be a role model for my daughter ANY DAY over Beyonce. Selena Gomez is extremely talented and has a bright future in front of her, and I wish her only the very best and applaud her.

I am impressed that she wasn't all slutty with boobs popping out like most Pop stars are. I never went to see the movie. Didn't look good!

UM! KUDOS for being genuine, NOT lip syncing, and keeping it completely classy. auto tune has ruined people's perceptions....and the way artists sing their songs KILLS their voices...she sounded great, looked great...perfect example of how it's done!!! YEAH!!!!!

It was kinda boring, and she went off key more than once.

Her movie Spring Breakers she didn't rob banks she was the good girl. She left as soon as the trouble began. Vanessa Hudgens on the other hand....
