Staff WriterSeriously, what blind person is telling Selena Gomez she's not that she's not sexy and cool? Who says that? Selena Gomez inspired the crowd at her concert in Connecticut the other day by launching into a monologue about self-worth. "I hear you guys," she started off by saying. "I hear what you're telling me when you tweet and when you meet me. The stories that you guys go through, and I have to say that I know exactly what you feel. Sometimes it is so hard." "But I have to tell you, I get it all day, every day," she admitted. "That I'm not sexy enough, or I'm not cool enough, or if I did this I would be accepted. Let me tell you one thing: the sexiest thing , I think -- actually, I know -- is class. I promise you that each and every one of you is made to be who you are. That is what's so attractive and beautiful. Please don't forget that, even when it gets hard."
Gomez, who has almost 17 million Twitter followers, has retained her Disney-innocent image in a way that stars like Miley Cyrus have not. Despite appearing in Spring Breakers and releasing sexually suggestive songs, her image remains relatively squeaky-clean. Recently, new pop sensation Lorde said that "Come And Get It" had a bad message. "I'm a feminist and the theme of her song is, 'When you're ready come and get it from me.' I'm sick of women being portrayed this way." Selena Gomez responded by saying "I think she is super-talented and I think it's awesome. But in my opinion, it's not feminism if you're tearing down another artist." Classy indeed!
She ended her speech with "And honestly, all of that stuff? Who really says that?" She then launched into her song "Who Says."
