Selena Gomez goes Viral for Her Reaction to Chris Brown being Nominated for an MTV VMA


Selena Gomez recently made waves on social media for her candid reaction to Chris Brown’s nomination for an MTV Video Music Award (VMA). The “Single Soon” singer didn’t hold back her emotions upon hearing Brown’s name announced as a nominee during the awards ceremony.

Gomez’s reaction was captured in a viral video, where she appeared visibly unimpressed, turning up her nose and scrunching her face in apparent disinterest. This contrasted sharply with her cheerful smiles and applause for the other nominees that evening.

The reason behind Gomez’s reaction is not confirmed, but it likely stems from Chris Brown’s troubled history.

In 2009, he faced felony assault and criminal threat charges for physically assaulting Rihanna, leaving her with visible facial injuries and necessitating hospitalization. This deeply troubling incident resulted in a restraining order against him, as well as court-ordered domestic violence counseling and community labor.

Throughout the years, Chris Brown has faced multiple accusations of assault from women, further contributing to his controversial reputation. Given this history, it’s understandable why Gomez and others may question his eligibility for awards.

One user on social media expressed support for Gomez’s reaction, stating, “I would’ve reacted the same way. Chris Brown shouldn’t be eligible for any awards.” Another echoed this sentiment, saying, “Exactly, she’s so real.”

Many users applauded Gomez for her candid response, with comments like, “She represents all of us” and “As she should.” One user affectionately referred to her as a “queen” and expressed their love for her.

However, it’s worth noting that not everyone shared Gomez’s viewpoint, and some labeled her reaction as “disrespectful.”

In the end, SZA emerged victorious, winning the award for Best R&B VMA for her song “Shirt,” despite Chris Brown’s nomination. SZA had an impressive six nominations that evening, making her the second-most nominated artist, behind Taylor Swift. Swift took home the VMAs for Best Pop and Song of the Year with “Anti-Hero.”

Selena Gomez was also in the running for awards that night, alongside Rema, for their song “Calm Down.” While Gomez’s reaction to Chris Brown’s nomination may have sparked conversation, the evening ultimately celebrated the talents and achievements of various artists across the music industry.
