On Tuesday, while the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show
aired on television, Victoria's Secret posted a striking photo of Gomez basked in an angelic light after one of her two performances.
However, a number of commenters suggested that the 23-year-old performer might have been performing to a pre-recorded track. Instagram user melzblush_4 posed the question, "She sings live?"
Gomez took to the comments section to seemingly defend her performance, strongly writing, "Yes I f**king sing live."
While some commenters weren’t sold, there were a slew of fans who came to Selena's defense. "Be strong and ignore the haters," Instagram user ProudOfQueenSelena, a Selena Gomez fan, wrote.
Gomez has not yet addressed the criticism on any of her own social media platforms, but it's clear she feels strongly about defending her ability to sing live.
