Selena Gomez Poses in Thong, Confirms the Weeknd Is One Lucky Dude

by at .

It's been quite a tumultuous 24 hours in the life of Selena Gomez.

Yesterday, the world learned that Selena is dating the Weeknd.

It was big news, and not only because it means that a dude named after a period of time is slowly gaining Legendary Ladies' Man status.

He probably wouldn't be as successful if his name was the Tuesdy.

Anyway, the relationship has complicated Selena's social life in a number of predictable ways.

The most obvious of which is that Selena's friendship with Bella Hadid appears to be through.

Bella dated the Weeknd for much of last year, and they only just ended their relationship in December.

So it didn't come as much of a surprise when Bella unfollowed Selena on Instagram shortly after the news that she's working for the Weeknd went public.

We'd say this is all teen-caliber drama, but Bella is only a year removed from her teens, so we guess it makes sense.

The important thing is that Selena isn't letting all these distractions prevent her from doing what she does best.

Okay, we guess technically singing is what she does best, but having a bangin' body has gotta be a close second:

As though that pic needs any explanation, it's Selena posing in a thong for celebrity photographer Mert Alas, who's second only to Terry Richardson in his impressive ability to get famous people to take their clothes off.

It's hard to believe that anyone could object to such a thing of beauty, but believe it or not, the pic has drawn a fair bit of criticism.

Some folks have called Selena out for hypocrisy, as she discouraged other young women from posting explicit pics at the AMAs just two months ago:

“I don’t want to see your bodies on Instagram. I want to see what’s in [your heart],” Selena said, during her acceptance speech for the awkwardly-titled Favorite Female Artist- Pop/Rock award.

“I’m not trying to get validation, nor do I need it anymore.”

We'd echo the complaints that Ms. Gomez isn't practicing what she preaches, but ... #DatAss.

She should give an acceptance speech every time she catches a glimpse of that booty in the mirror.
