“For the Met Gala I was getting ready and we wanted to add some colour,” she continued, “so put on some of this tanning lotion and it looked really beautiful and very even.

"As the evening kept going on it was getting a little darker and darker, and I didn't notice it.

Selena added while laughing: “I’m at the Met Gala, one of the most prestige, beautiful events and I'm walking trying to look all beautiful and I look at a photo of myself when I sit down and I'm completely orange."

"I was like this is going to be terrible because I'm going to get eaten alive about this. So I had my security take a video of me because my first reaction was just to get the hell out of there," she said.

Going on to explain she briefly addressed the mishap at the time, Sel added: “So I'm running to my car and I'm literally hauling a** to get to my car and I put it [the photo] online and said 'this was my reaction after seeing my Met Gala photos'".
