Selena Gomez performed her latest single, 'Come and Get It', at the MTV Movie Awards tonight. Although the song itself continues to receive strong reviews, many fans have criticized her for wearing a Bindi while dancing a Bollywood-inspired dance routine to the number.

Popdust tweeted, "We could go our entire lives without seeing another white girl in a bindi and that would be completely fine. #MTVMovieAwards." Popdust also added, "Not digging the appropriation here, Selener. #MTVMovieAwards."
 
Others tweeted slightly more harsh comments, such as "No @ selenagomez. Cultural appropriation is not cute. It's racist. #goaway." Another said, "I guess Selena Gomez couldn't convince any Indian women to participate in that mockery of a dance. Not surprised. #culturalappropriation."

Do you agree with the comments? 'Come and Get it' does begin with an Indian tune, and the influence of Indian music on the song and music video is clear for everyone to see, but most of the criticism seems to stem from the fact that Selena wore a Bindi. Some might argue that she was trying to showcase the cultural influences in her song, but it seems that the majority find it offensive and racist.
