Selena ‘girlfriend of the Bieber’ Gomez has had footage of pink horses taken out of her next pop promo because of concerns as to how the pink creatures were pinked, not least from Pink herself, who is the UN’s chief ambassador when it comes to the use of the colour pink.
You’re following this, right? Basically pictures of Bieber’s girl posing with the pinked-up horses were posted on the net shortly after she filmed her new promo, causing animal loving Pink to tweet some outrage, she being offended that horses would be painted in that way for a stupid pop video.
Such was the stir created by the pink one, Gomez’s people – despite insisting no horses were harmed in the making of the promo, and that animal welfare types were on set to ensure that was so – have cut the horses from the final edit.
Which now means that not only were those horses forced to don pink body paint for a day, but doing so was a total waste of time. The horses of the world will not be impressed I’m sure. Let’s just hope they don’t decide to take out their anger on Selena’s boyfriend, perhaps by throwing things at him on stage.
