Selena Gomez goes barefaced as she emerges from hotel the morning after wild night with pal Taylor Swift at MTV VMA after-party
The Single Soon hitmaker, 31, ditched her glam and showed off her natural complexion as she made her way out.
The Only Murders in the Building star opted for a comfortable look, sporting a loose fitting white shirt over a white tee, and matching oversized pants.
Selena wore her dark tresses in a side braid, and accessorized with a number of gold jewels.
The star graciously stopped outside to take a selfie with a fan.
The night prior she attended a star-studded VMA’s after-party hosted by Diddy.
She stunned in a deep purple corset-style mini dress and heels.
Earlier in the night Selena had all eyes on her as she arrived to the MTV Video Music Awards at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
She wowed at the star-studded event in a plunging red Oscar de la Renta gown with a floral pattern, a fringe, and a nude under layer.
The stunning halter-neck dress formed into a vine-like fringe towards the bottom, and Selena paired the outfit with strappy red heels.
She wore her raven tresses parted in the middle and styled straight for the occasion.
Selena was nominated for three awards at the event, including Song of the Year, Best Collaboration and Best Afrobeats for her song ‘Calm Down’ with Rema, and ended up winning in the Best Afrobeats Video category.
She also shared a number of cute moments with her pal Taylor Swift, including a warm hug. Both also cheered each other on from the crowd as they won awards.
The Bad Blood hitmaker, 33, dominated the award ceremony as she won in nine of the 11 categories she was nominated.
While Gomez accepted her award, Swift excitedly cheered her on, and was pictured standing in the front row and encouraging those around her to also cheer and stand up for Selena.
Meanwhile during Swift’s first acceptance speech of the night, Selena was pictured standing up for her friend in a sign of respect, while others around her remained in their seats.
It was the first sighting of the friends together in public in a while.
The duo first became friends in 2008, while they were both dating Jonas Brothers: Taylor dated Joe, while Selena was with Nick.
Selena also went viral for her reactions to Chris Brown’s name being read aloud at the MTV VMAs.
Social media users dissected her disgusted expression at hearing the rapper was nominated in the Best R&B category from last night.
In response to iHeartRadio AU sharing an Instagram video of Gomez sneering at Brown’s name, the two-time Grammy nominee commented: ‘Who cares lol.’
She also raised eyebrows for looking confused and somewhat scared during Olivia Rodrigo’s performance as the 20-year-old faked a huge stage malfunction as a nod to her music video for Vampire.
In response to the online discussions about her, Gomez also took to Instagram to write: ‘I will never be a meme again. I’d rather sit still than be dragged for being myself. Much love.’
The Only Murders in the Building actress appeared to hit back at fans making her nervous expression during Olivia’s performance into a meme, which began lighting up social media.
The Driver’s License singer was the second performer of the night, behind Lil Wayne, singing her new hit track Vampire on stage at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
After the song started to pick up, Rodrigo stood up, as pyrotechnics went off all around her, which appeared to startle the singer, as fake tree branches and a red drape fell from the stage, as a VMA stagehand quickly ushered her off the stage.
As she was whisked off stage, Selena even looked quite distraught, as the stage went dark, briefly cutting to her hit song Good For U before she started performing another new hit, Get Him Back, flanked by a number of pink-clad singers-dancers.
