Sweet Selena Gomez? What is she doing on this list?! We'll enlighten you with one word: Bindi. Over the past few months, Gomez has been sporting the spiritual symbol as an homage to the Bollywood-vibe of her "Come & Get It" single. But what at first seemed like a harmless fashion statement to the former Disney darling, has quickly turned into a religious debate as Hindu groups have lashed out at the frivolity of her adopting the bindi.
"It is not meant to be thrown around loosely for seductive effects or as a fashion accessory aiming at mercantile greed," said Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, to which Gomez responded on The Z100 Morning Show: "The song kind of has that almost Hindu feel, that tribal feel. I kind of wanted to translate that. Plus, I’ve been learning a lot about my seven chakras and bindis and stuff... If you’re fully aware of [a symbol], you should have the freedom to enjoy it."
