Letting the sun rays go where they normally don't, Selena Gomez posted an apparent nude selfie by a big window that was camouflaged with a sheer curtain.

The popular svelte singer shared an image of herself that revealed lots of skin, conspicuously covered by a large transparent curtain and some subtle blurring. While it is evident Gomez is probably quite nude in the shot, she did a good job at concealing any private parts.

Obviously, unless Gomez has a good automatic shutter and/or a great hand at placing the camera in the right spot, someone else must have taken the "selfie" for the stunning star. It's also safe to say that the apparent impromptu shot was a pre-planned share. However, the stunt is decidedly a successful way to get herself some added attention in a classy way.


While the photo itself contains no nudity, the way the image is presented suggests she is wearing nothing else but the curtain and the sunlight that surrounds her. She is facing away from the window, so the shape of her backside can just be made out behind the veil.

Meanwhile, some fans argue that she's wearing a bathing suit, although with the way the sun is hitting Gomez's body — making her form almost into a silhouette — it is impossible to tell whether she has on a bikini or not.

Since the "Come and Get It" singer is known for not promoting controversial body-exposing antics, this selfie is already causing lots of buzz among Gomez's fans. She always makes a point of not being overly risqué, even though she's been showing a more sexy side to her singing and videos lately.
