Selena Gomez responds to her AMAs backlash.
I won’t sugarcoat this: Selena’s opening number at the AMAs was hard to watch. The Internet criticized her for lacking energy and enthusiasm throughout her performances of “Lose You To Love Me” and “Look At Her Now.” There’s also video of Selena stumbling around the red carpet beforehand. I’ll let you connect the dots.
Gomez is owning it. She says she rehearsed for three weeks leading up to the big day, then apologized if she let her fans down.
“I rehearsed every day for 3 weeks. To be honest, I didn’t feel ready or confident enough,” she said.
“Everyone had so many expectations on me and i’m sorry that i let you down. I really tried, but it got out of control. I’m sorry.”
At least she didn’t defend it?
Britney Spears faced a wave of hate following her 2007 VMAs performance. She said sometimes you have good performances, and sometimes… not so good performances.
