Selena Gomez Angers Hindus
The bindi is a religious symbol to Hindus, and the fact that Gomez sported one during her seductive performance had many unhappy.
"The bindi on the forehead is an ancient tradition in Hinduism and has religious significance. It is also sometimes referred to as the third eye and the flame, and it is an auspicious religious and spiritual symbol," Hindu statesman Rajan Zed said. "It is not meant to be thrown around loosely for seductive effects or as a fashion accessory aiming at mercantile greed."
Gomez has yet to speak out on wearing the bindi, but when she took the stage last night to perform the track on Dancing With the Stars, she changed her bindi to a simpler design. more on this story
