Just like the rest of us, Selena Gomez loves kicking back in her comfy clothes without makeup, and she shared a behind-the-scenes photo of what her downtime looks like!
Selena Gomez shared several pictures from a gorgeous, sexy photo shoot on her Instagram Story on Feb. 16. However, she also wanted fans to know that most of the time she didn’t look like the woman in those glam photos! To end her series of pictures, Selena revealed what she looks like in “real life” by posting an image of herself wearing glasses and no makeup, as well as a bathrobe and her hair in a messy ponytail.
In the shot, she’s in her natural state, lounging on the couch with a blanket draped across her lap. She’s also holding a coffee mug and seems completely uninterested in the camera that’s snapping a picture of her. For years, Selena has talked about the dangers of social media and how it gives users a false view of someone else’s life, so it’s obviously important for her to show both the glam and not-so-glam moments that she experiences!
“I think our world is going through a lot, obviously, but for my generation, specifically, social media has been terrible,” Selena said in 2019. “It can be great in moments, but I would just be careful and allow yourself some time limits when you should use it and when not.” Selena, herself, has admitted to taking breaks from social media for her own mental health.
In another 2019 interview, she explained, “I noticed, with me, I got kind of depressed looking at all these people who look beautiful and amazing, and it would just get me down a lot. Taking breaks is really important. Just know that most of it isn’t real. And I hate to say that, I don’t mean to be rude, but it’s very unrealistic in a lot of ways.”
Selena has dealt with her fair share of body-shamers, bullies and trolls during her years in the spotlight, and she’s done her best to try and tune out the noise. However, she also recognizes the ways that social media has been beneficial for her. “I’m very grateful I have the platform in any way, I can still share things I’m passionate about,” she admitted. “I don’t do a lot of pointless pictures. I like to be intentional with it.” In 2020, Selena turned her Instagram account, which has more than 200 million followers, over to various leaders in the Black community so they could spread their messages with a larger audience, as well.
8 Most Shocking ‘Bachelor’ Endings Of All-Time: Peter’s Change Of Heart & MOre
As this season of ‘The Bachelor’ winds down, we’re taking a look back at some of the show’s endings that didn’t quite go as planned!
The Bachelor has become a lot less cut and dry from the simple days of meeting a group of women, narrowing them down and choosing one to propose to! Through the years, several seasons did not end in a proposal, and many seasons had finales that totally shocked viewers, as things did not go as expected. Previews for the final two episodes of the show’s current season show star Matt James getting quite emotional as things dwindle down. Could it end just as shocking as some of these other Bachelor finales?!
Peter Weber — Season 24
Season 24 of The Bachelor starred Peter Weber. He narrowed his group of women down to two final choices, Madison Prewett and Hannah Ann Sluss. In the weeks leading up to the final rose ceremony, Madison started to have doubts about her relationship with Peter due to their difference in values. He urged her to stick around, but on their final date, she broke up with him and left the show. Peter went on to propose to Hannah Ann at the final rose ceremony, and they got engaged.
However, as the show was airing, Peter realized he still had feelings for Madison, and he and Hannah Ann ended their relationship. At the live After The Final Rose ceremony, Peter and Madison agreed to give their relationships another shot. It didn’t last long though, and they announced their breakup just days later. Weeks after filming, Peter re-connected with another contestant from his season, Kelley Flanagan, and they started dating during the spring of 2020. That relationship ended before the end of the year, although they sparked reconciliation rumors when they were spotted hanging out at the Super Bowl together.
Arie Luyendyk Jr. — Season 22
Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s season of The Bachelor may have had an even crazier ending! Arie proposed to Becca Kufrin at the final rose ceremony, but weeks later, as the season was airing, he realized he still had feelings for his runner-up, Lauren Burnham. Cameras were there when Arie and Becca met up for a “getaway weekend”, and they captured the pair’s emotional conversation as Arie revealed his true feelings. Becca was obviously devastated as they broke up.
Arie won Lauren back and wound up proposing to her on After the Final Rose. They tied the knot in Jan. 2019 and have a daughter together. In 2020, they also announced that they’re expecting twins, due in summer 2021! Meanwhile, Becca went on to star on The Bachelorette, where she got engaged to Garrett Yrigoyen, but they broke up in 2020.
Colton Underwood — Season 23
Season 23, Colton Underwood’s season, also had a crazy finish. Cassie Randolph made the decision to leave the show during her fantasy suite date, after she found out that her dad didn’t give Colton his blessing to propose. Colton knew he wanted to choose Cassie, so he sent the other remaining women, Tayshia Adams and Hannah Godwin, home on the spot. Then, he fought to win Cassie back, and they left the show as a couple, but without getting engaged. They stayed together for more than a year before breaking up in 2020.
There were even more wild finishes where these came from, though! Click through the gallery above to check out the most shocking endings on The Bachelor over the years!
Ariana Grande & 17 More Stars Pairing Oversized Shirts With Thigh-High Boots — Pics
Who needs pants when you can pair your oversized shirt with a pair of thigh-high boots?! Stars like Ariana Grande and more have perfected this trend over the years.
It may be a weird name, but lampshading has become a popular celebrity trend in recent years. The fashion statement involves pairing thigh-high boots with an oversized shirt, sweatshirt or sweater. Ariana Grande is definitely one celebrity who favors the look, but she’s not the only one. We rounded up a bunch of stars who’ve nailed the oversized shirt/no pants look by pairing it with stylish thigh-high boots!
For the past year or so, Ariana has really stayed out of the public eye. Before that, though, she favored wearing baggy sweatshirts while out and about, and she was often caught by paparazzi in the look. Ari generally dressed up her oversized sweatshirts with a pair of heeled boots, like the cream-colored shoes in the photo above. She also wore her hair long and straight to go with the simplicity of the outfit.
We’re used to seeing Jennifer Lopez in sexy, skintight outfits, but even she likes to rock a more comfortable, baggy look once in a while. She was photographed in a white, oversized button down shirt, paired with denim boots. Of course, she still made the simple look stylish with a pair of fierce sunglasses and her hair slicked back into the perfect bun.
Olivia Munn showed off a dressier way to pair thigh-high boots and a big shirt. She wore her dress shirt with a vest and blazer, paired with sky-high black boots that accentuated her legs. She also rocked hoop earrings and her hair was styled in a half ponytail. Want to see how other stars have taken on the lampshading trend that Ariana and more love so much?

Rudy Giuliani’s Daughter Is Pansexual & Says Threesomes With Couples ‘Changed’ Her Life
In a revealing new essay, Caroline Giuliani opens up about her sexuality and how she found her voice and freedom after indulging in threesomes with couples.
Rudy Giuliani’s 32-year-old daughter, Caroline Giuliani’s, life changed when she started embracing her sexuality by becoming a “unicorn,” or someone who has threesomes with couples seeking a third partner. Caroline shared her experiences with polyamory in an essay for Vanity Fair. “I now understand that my curiosity, open-mindedness and sense of adventure are three non-negotiable, defining elements of my identity,” Caroline admitted. “But it wasn’t until I started sleeping with couples that I shed my shame about those qualities, let alone embraced them in all areas of my life.”
Caroline added that her relationships with couples, which are not always sexual, helped her “better cope with depression, anxiety, and the lingering cognitive effects of adolescent anorexia” because it “became the key to harnessing [her] voice and creative spark.” She also opened up about one specific encounter with a couple, which led her to define her sexuality. “My heightened response to their energetic flow also started me on the path to identifying as pansexual,” Caroline confirmed. “Which feels more precise than bisexuality.”
Being pansexual means that Caroline is not attracted to people based on biological sex, gender or gender identity. “I am attracted to people based on their presence and energy,” she explained, “Regardless of their biological sex, gender or gender identity.”
Caroline said that her experience as a unicorn helped her embrace parts of herself that she never was able to before. “I know now that I am empathetic, radically open-minded, profoundly adventurous and fiercely committed to telling stories that reduce the stigma surrounding sexuality and mental health — including this one, right now,” she wrote. “Before I started living the unicorn life, I wouldn’t have had the confidence to list those qualities or even feel certain that they are positive traits”
She concluded by explaining that the purpose of her essay was to clarify misconceptions about “sexually adventurous people,” including the notion that they’re “less responsible” because of their lifestyle. “Shining a communal light on sexuality makes it harder for darkness, like assault and trauma, to fester,” Caroline explained. “Because of my openness, I’ve dealt with everything from first dates spitting in my mouth (without consent!) to people assuring me I’ll never find a partner to start a family with. Through all of the judgement, the incredible moments of connection and transformation I’ve shared with these couples remind me that my expansive mind is a gift.”
