Fans Accuse Selena Gomez Lip-Syncing Her AMAs Performance of “Wolves”
Uh oh! Selena Gomez found herself in some hot water after making her first musical appearance since undergoing a kidney transplant. During the 2017 American Music Awards, a newly-blonde Selena (we'll get to that later) took the stage to sing her new single, “Wolves.” However, while many were excited to see her, others have accused her of actually lip-syncing the song.
Unfortunately, immediately after her performance, fans flooded Twitter with savage comments convinced that Selena wasn't actually singing.
I seriously don't understand how selena gomez has a music career.. no stage presence, always lip syncing and can't even sing at all

Selena literally just stumbled around the stage, got carried around, dragged off the car, and lip synced yet y’all think she’s talented

Meanwhile, Selenators came to her defense by blaming it on the fact that she just underwent a serious surgery and so we should all give her a break.
may i remind y’all selena is still recovering from a kidney transplant and she just gave the performance of a lifetime. words can not express how emotional i’m feeling right now. literally shaking. #SELENAxAMAs #amas pic.twitter.com/gTtkfeBY63

If I see one more person bashing Selena for lip syncing I’m gonna beat someone’s ass SHE LITERALLY HAS A LIFE THREATENING AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE, HAD A KIDNEY TRANSPLANT, AND HAD A MASSIVE PANIC ATTACK BEFORE THE PERFORMANCE LEAVE HER BE

I rewatched Selena performance and she didn't lip sync, she did sing to a backing track and that did over power her voice in chorus but you can definitely hear in the bridges and verses that she is actually singing bc of the note changes she does. She seemed unhappy though

We all know Selena & Taylor will always get dragged when they perform, it doesn't matter how hard they work people Stans will tear then down.
Same happened to Taylor last week at SNL, people said she was lip syncing & criticised her dancing

But aside from being slammed for lip-syncing (which TBH, it's all that rare when it comes to televised performances, even if you do have the pipes), Selena made headlines after she showed up on the red carpet with platinum blonde hair! Yes, BLONDE! We never thought we'd see the day since she's been a brunette for her whole life. Maybe her rekindled romance with Justin Bieber inspired the change? As many noted on Twitter “new ‘do, old bae.”
After stunning the crowd at the AMAs, the 25-year-old posted her new look on Instagram too. Justin, as well as two million of her fans, liked the pic.
We have a feeling Selena's new ‘do might inspire others do chop theirs all off and give it the bleach treatment, too!
