Pink Blasts Selena Gomez Over Painted Horses Used in Video Shoot
“If there are any animal activists around Malibu – at Leo Cabrillo State Beach, there are horses being painted for a stupid music video,” tweeted Pink, adding, “Artists should be more aware and responsible for their actions.” Later, after learning that the horses were involved in the Gomez shoot, Pink wrote, “oh lord, THAT’s whose video it was? Disney fans unite. here we go.”
The backlash from Gomez supporters apparently won’t stop Pink from speaking her mind on the issue. “Whether u r a fan of mine or whomEVER’S, i won’t stop speaking out about animal cruelty,” vowed the singer. “[I’ve] taken responsibility in the past, so should [Gomez].”
The young Disney star has yet to respond on her own Twitter account, but her rep tells Gossip Cop the horses were safe. “It was important to the Production Company, Record Label and Ms. Gomez that no animals were harmed and all proper precautions were taken,” the rep says in a statement. “A non-toxic, vegetable-based powder paint was applied via an airbrush and removed with water. An official from the Humane Society was on set supervising.” What do YOU think?
