Selena Gomez gives off creepy fetish vibes in Petra Collins' new Instagram short video and fans find it difficult to take in
Collins' latest short film starring Selena Gomez might be called A Love Story but it's every bit different from what one would expect a stereotypical love story to be.
Gone are the days of Selena Gomez whipping a wand around and being all cute and awkward as Alex Russo. The 'Bad Liar' singer is now bold and unabashed and kind of creepy too in her new avatar as a horror flick star that seemingly likes to do weird stuff in the bathtub with a cake and an eyeball... Strange, right?
Wait till you see the entire video. Canadian artist Petra Collins' latest short film on Instagram might be called A Love Story but it's every bit different from what one would expect a stereotypical love story to be. Released on June 20 as Instagram launched its new IGTV project, the clip is not for people who aren't fond of disturbing content. In short, it might make you feel uneasy if you're still basking in the glory of Selena's Disney days.
The string of pics from the clip shows the 25-year-old singer/actress in a dazed state, taking a bath and looking not-so-alive. And another one of those pics takes it a notch higher by showing her sitting laughing while sitting between the legs of a woman - and this said woman is wearing a mask of hands.
And if that hasn't made all hardcore 'Selenators' go "WTF!?" multiple times in their mind already, there's more: In another photo, Selena is seen bathing with a realistic mask in her hands. Other scenes show the mask appearing on her back, before slipping into the water.
A Love Story dir by mee 🎥 lil short with @selenagomez 🥀 u can watch excerpts from it on IGTV on my profile⛓ bts: @monibelle dp: @kevinhayden prop master: @sarahsitkin set: @davidjameswhite_ cd: @nathanmitchell_ edited by : @sofia___________ producded by: @itsevaevans @anchor_light first ac: @kudos2yuya written by: @realmelissabroder wrangler lol : @annaballins
Fans and followers of American Horror Story might find some inspirational resemblance with the project as the background score is that of a persistent humming from Selena's side - very much like the anthology series' Season 6 anthem style that is bound to prove unsettling to the viewers. It just makes you prepared for a jump scare that just never seems to come.
But it doesn't stop at that. Remember the cake obsession mentioned before? Yeah, when Selena is not playing with masks, she eats cake off her legs. Slathered all over her calves, she scrapes it up and laps it onto her mouth with a kitchen knife. And in a very 'Neon Demon'-esque style, she also happens to pop a human eyeball in her mouth.
As expected, Selena fans are not taking too keenly to whatever creepiness Petra Collins has brewed up with the former Disney star. One of them even slammed her on her Instagram page, saying: “Petra Collins you better get away from Selena Gomez. Don’t influence her with your weird plans and behavior.”
And certain other fans seem to be adapting quite well into this artistic evolution of the "Fetish" singer. “This is so creepy and cool at the same time,” wrote one such fan. Another one chimed in, saying: “Love Selena trying out new things!”
But we believe that one particular fan's honest opinion of the clip was the best of all. They simply wrote: “WTF???”
