Selena Gomez has been busy promoting her new single “Come & Get It” but the 20-year-old beauty has been caught up in some controversy after wearing a bindi during her 2013 MTV Movie Awards performance as well as on the ‘Ellen DeGeneres Show‘ and during her performance on ‘Dancing With The Stars.’
At least one Hindu group wants Gomez to apologize for wearing the forehead decoration,”The bindi on the forehead is an ancient tradition in Hinduism and has religious significance,” Rajan Zed, leader of the Universal Society of Hinduism, said in a statement. “It is also sometimes referred to as the third eye and the flame, and it is an auspicious religious and spiritual symbol.”
“It is not meant to be thrown around loosely for seductive effects or as a fashion accessory aiming at mercantile greed,” he added. “Selena should apologize and then she should get acquainted with the basics of world religions.”
