Summer is ending, but Barbiecore is here to stay.
Selena Gomez kept the trend going at Universal Music’s Music and Health summit in West Hollywood yesterday. The singer wore a bright pink pantsuit with a sleeveless top from Giuseppe Di Morabito. She accessorized with Tiffany & Co. jewelry.
She shared a selfie with a close-up of her glam on her Instagram Story before photos of her full look at the event were released.
This isn’t Selena's first big Barbiecore moment. The singer made headlines for hosting a private Barbie screening as part of her 31st birthday celebrations in July, where she dressed up in the pink hue.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, Selena spoke during yesterday’s panel about AI’s threat to the music industry and how it scares her.
“I don’t think anybody in my field wants to feel like they need to lean on a computer in order to translate their story or what they’re trying to say,” she said. “It terrifies me, to be honest, the whole AI thing, but I don’t think you could ever replace what a human being can write….Lil Wayne said it really well, and he was basically saying that there’s no other human like who you are. And that’s all it should be.”
She also addressed her feelings on being Instagram’s most-followed woman with over 429 million followers. “I’ve never really cared about that stuff,” she said. “I suppose I’m grateful for the platform, and I would love to continue to use it for what I’m able to do, but numbers are just numbers.”
Regarding the responsibility she feels having such a big platform and fan base, Selena said, “It can be a little heavy. I feel for people, and I think that’s what kind of keeps me in check, to be honest. I think I can be a little reckless with my emotions and having conversations with young people, women who are going through divorces or going through chemo—it’s not just about me, and I’m fully aware of that. I will just always cherish it. It’s a big responsibility, though. It’s a little scary.”
