When Selena Gomez returned with new music, we were all kinds of excited.
Her new song “Fetish” came with a Spotify video which featured a close-up of her lips singing the lyrics and the teasers that she’s been releasing on Instagram suggest that a full-length video is definitely on its way.
However, it’s not the music and the video that’s got people talking, but her make-up… or lack thereof.
Selena’s go-to make up artist Hung Vanngo posted a photo including a detail that you may not have noticed before.
Selena. Has. Freckles.
We’re used to seeing Selena super glammed-up but for the artwork, she was pictured with barely any cosmetics on her face. She wears a light coat of beam on her lips, leaving her brows and complexion bare with just a splattering of freckles across her nose and cheekbones.
However, some fans were not happy.
Things escalated quickly and the freckles became the topic of a social media fight. Commenters called them ‘fake’ and accused Hung of Photoshopping the picture.
So yea those freckles were fake on Selena lmao... Hung & people in his comments bickering about it— len (@Mariesrhythem) July 13, 2017

That said, some Instagrammers were quick to defend their gal.

Selena decided to try out faux freckles and some disgusting rats really left awful messages on hungs page & he had to block. Tf— (@stunningselmg) July 13, 2017
Not gonna lie, we reckon that Hung’s faux freckles are the most realistic that we’ve probably ever seen which is a massive testament to his talent.
Remember when THIS happened?
