Is Selena Gomez Getting Edgier, Sexier on Tour? (photos!)

Selena Gomez appears to be cranking up the sexuality in her tour shows to distance herself from her good-girl Disney image, although she’s nowhere near the level of raunchiness of other top stars like Rihanna or Miley Cyrus.

Rihanna has played the sexual vixen and even dabbled in BDSM during her tour shows, while Miley has become a full-fledged rocker chick.

While the “Wizards of Waverly Place” star’s outfits are definitely more risque, they are still tasteful. Think Britney Spears early in her career.

They’re more like Vegas show costumes than barely there tee-shirts, ripped jeans, leather hotpants and thigh-high boots.

Check out Selena’s photos; click to enlarge.

During her show at Darien Lake Theme Park in Darien Center, NY, she wore a sparkly, silver hooded crop-top and low-cut sparkling purple harem pants and sneakers.

At another show in Clarkston, Mich., where she wore a gold basque with a barely there pelmet skirt, short in the front and with a longer train in the back.

Although the costumes are tame relative to other teen stars, they are a departure for her.

Previously, while part of the Disney stable, her dress has been conservative, family friendly fare.

But Selena may be feeling more confident about herself and sexuality.

“When I was 11 years old, I had a grown woman who was a casting director tell me I was not strong enough to carry the lead in any project,” she told Glamour magazine.

“Now I’m doing things that I love, and I’m working really hard. I never want to play the victim or anything, but of course everybody deals with it.”

    I just saw Selena at the DTE Music Theater in Clarkston, MI. (August 10) She put on an awesome show! :) I have never understood why people are so overly worried about what a celebrity is wearing during a concert. Her outfits look fine to me. Have you ever been to a beach?

    If Selena’s outfits offended you this much, then make sure you NEVER go to a beach. You will be surely traumatized by the swim suits people are wearing. As a fan, I was paying attention to her singing. Not her clothes.

    Selena You rock!…

    Jesus, all these sad little girls commenting on here and calling her a slut and whore …it’s kind of pathetic.

    We all know you’re all just jealous, ugly, fat girls who use the internet to vent your anger due to the constant bullying you all endure at school.

    Sort your lives out you sad gits, fair play to her being comfortable in showing some skin. Don’t be haters because you don’t and never will have the talent to perform on stage, let alone lose all that excess weight you girls probably have to look half as good as her.

    It was inevitable. Sooner or later selena gomez had to play the grown up play card. This may signal the beginning of the end. As she transition from children entertainment to adult audiences, her fan base will diminish. The adults who listen to her will not be seduced by her music, her singing or her acting. The latin community may continue to support her. But her popularity will fade. She can’t sing, and her acting is questionable. Smaller venues and a drop in record sales and I see Hollywood not gambling on her floundering movie career.

  • TaylorSwift13Lovers

    jeez. she really needs to calm down. i bet most of the parents with children were trying to cover up their kids eyes.

    Remember when Miley first started dressing sexy and we thought it was because she’d recently had sex with Liam Hemsworth and was finally getting comfortable with her sexuality? We think Selena has recently had sex with Justin Bieber and is finally getting comfortable with her sexuality.

  • Jess

    she is a slut

    She’s 19 and not 12 anymore, what the hell is the big deal? Be quiet, and quit fussing. This is a tour, she can’t wear the same stuff as she does on the red carpet or on the streets duh. Plus, as you said, her costumes are still tasteful. They aren’t barely there stuff. She looks awesome in everything, and it’s still age appropriate. Again, she is 19!!!! Yeah, she’s a really wholesome girl and especially compared to other girls from Disney like Miley, but that hasn’t changed! She’s still the same girl we loved before, now she’s just growing up. We can’t not allow her to do that, and at least she is definitely not taking the same path as other stars. I know y’all are coming up with some pretty harsh judgements just from how she dress and that too on friggin tour, but it’s Selena Gomez. She’s way to careful and intellectual to take the path some others have to ruin her career. You guys just need to stop making a big deal over nothing. She said she wants to make this a PG-13 rave type of tour so if she dresses like this, it isn’t a big deal. She is trying to show is growing up, but not too fast or in the wrong way. She isn’t like Miley who thinks she can do whatever she wants just because she’s 18/older now. So shush. Yeah, she still does have young fans but it’s not like she doesn’t care about them and not cater to them. She’s even said so before she loves her younger fans a lot because like them, she’s also still growing. Just because she was a Disney girl, doesn’t mean she can’t do some things later. And remember, she has left Disney now. Her contract is up, she is onto bigger and better things. :)
