Actress Selena Gomez has made her first public appearance following her recent Instagram controversy, where she faced criticism from fans for staying silent on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Gomez, who is 31 years old, was seen in New York City on a Saturday evening, accompanied by her best friend, Taylor Swift, in what was a star-studded girls' night out, as reported by Daily Mail.
The 'Only Murders in the Building' star looked effortlessly stylish in a tan turtleneck sweater dress, accentuated by a gold leather belt cinched at her waist. Her raven-black hair was elegantly styled in a bun, complemented by chunky gold hoop earrings. She completed her look with pointed-toe slingback kitten heels and carried a black leather bucket bag.
Gomez and Swift joined their circle of friends for dinner, while the NFL star boyfriend of the 'Cruel Summer' singer, Travis Kelce, was away with his Kansas City Chiefs team.
The dynamic duo was accompanied by the likes of Sophie Turner, Gigi Hadid, Cara Delevingne, and Brittany Mahomes during their night out.
Earlier this week, Gomez took to her Instagram account to address the criticism she received for not commenting on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In a post that has since been deleted, she expressed that a single post, whether made or not, could not "change the world." On Thursday, she momentarily announced her decision to delete her account on Instagram Stories, but later removed the post, and her account remains active.
On her Instagram Stories, Selena had written, “I am taking a break and deleting my Instagram. I'm done. I do not support any of what's going on.” The Story does not exist anymore.
