Selena Gomez made a cute expression that quickly became an online meme during the MTV VMAs
On September 12th (local time), the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards were held in the United States. Many popular stars, including Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, and Olivia Rodrigo, were present.
When Chris Brown was nominated for Best R&B, Selena Gomez pouted her lips and wrinkled her nose in a playful reaction. This moment was quickly captured and turned into a meme among netizens.
After the awards ceremony, Selena Gomez took to her social media and said, “I won’t become a meme again. It’s better not to react than to show emotions.”
Some agreed that Selena Gomez’s playful reaction was more of empathy rather than criticism towards Chris Brown. In fact, she expressed dissatisfaction with becoming a meme rather than denying her reaction.
In 2009, Chris Brown admitted to severely assaulting his former girlfriend Rihanna. He has faced allegations of assaulting his ex-girlfriend and acquaintances in the past and was recently caught on camera grabbing a female fan’s neck at a concert.
