Selena Gomez Nixes Painted Horses From New Video “Love You Like A Love Song”

Jun 3rd, 2011 // 10 Comments

Yet another reason for new mommy Pink to celebrate today – after being blasted by the “Raise Your Glass” singer and animal activist via Twitter for using painted horses in her new video “Love You Like A Love Song”, Selena Gomez has decided to cut the horses from her video altogether.

About two weeks ago, Pink took to Twitter to criticize a music video production using painted animals on the beach in Malibu. “If there are any animal activists around Malibu- at Leo Cabrillo State Beach, there are horses being painted for a stupid music video. Shame.”

She continued after learning that Justin Bieber’s sweetie was the artist in question whose music video was being shot: “whether u r a fan of mine or whomEVER’S, i won’t stop speaking out about animal cruelty. i’ve taken responsibility in the past, so should she.”

Selena’s camp released a statement saying “no animals were harmed and all proper precautions were taken. A nontoxic, vegetable-based powder paint was applied via an airbrush and removed with water.” But it appears that the “Who Says” singer wants the horses out of the picture completely.

“When Selena was presented the idea for the video, no one informed her the horses would be painted and she had assumed they would be colored in post-production [via special effects],” a production insider tells E! Online. “When she showed up to the set she was very surprised to see them painted.”

That should appease Pink, all animal lovers and horses alike.

    I mean, the horses have already been painted. They might as well be used in the video. If I were the horse, I’d be more pissed about being cut out of the video than being painted pink. There goes your 15 minutes of fame, ponies!

    Wait, Lady Gaga also had a pink horse on Paparazzi (Director’s Cut) yet she’s not criticized for it?! WTF!

    And Pink had her five minutes of fame as well. She is really selective to critize other people about this.

    Ok, so these horses are pure white, look at there eyes they look weird don’t they? It’s because they have a rare horse skin disease that comes with birth.. when there skin is pure white.. The skin can get very sensitive in the sun and it can burn them very badly and they could die without any coverage. So the horses must be painted with a color like brown or black and pink is a choice also. around their eyes the white around their eyes can reflect into their eyes when sun touches them and it can make them go blind. so these horses are perfectly fine being pink, they are actually safe being pink it saves them.

  7. Pink should close her mouth and start acting like a mom. Since she didnt like the horses being painted she should have called an official organization about animal cruelty. Instead she decided to tweet and we know the rest.

  8. Nice web site, smart information, nice design on http://idolator.com/5888072/selena-gomez-pink-painted-horses, added you to my favorites so I can return back when you post once more

  9. So she’s an animal protector… And theres so many animal abuse going on in the world but she’s critizing that horses got pianted, yeah, sounds logic. So this means she’s a vegetarian too and does’nt own anything animal made or what? Give me a break lol
