In June 2018 Selena Gomez’s pal Petra Collins used Instagram’s IGTV feature – which works as a video platform – to share short clips of the star naked in a bathtub. Yet these posts were nothing like the kind of sexy bath time photos Christina Aguilera shocked her fans with back in February. Instead, the videos were creepy and unsettling.
In one scene, for instance, the “Come & Get It” singer is holding what appears to be the skin of a disembodied face. Sat in a pool of murky green water, Gomez soon wears the face like a mask, staring into the lens of the camera with an intimidating expression. The video then cuts to what looks like a headless naked torso on an armchair in the next room.
In another shot, the 26-year-old leans in towards the strange face and sings to it in an eerie way. Later, too, the face is positioned on her back before it slides off and slips into the water. The only other sound that Gomez’s followers can hear are the echo of the bathroom and a dripping tap.
