On Saturday evening, Selena Gomez shared some sexy selfies on Instagram, showing off a pair of thigh-high latex black boots that glided up her legs. The boots had stiletto heels and pointed toes. She shared a shot of herself wearing them on the edge of what looks like a hotel bed under a chandelier. She paired the boots with a no-pants look and an oversized white button-down. Next to the boots, she added a black heart emoji.
The “Single Soon” singer shared a second closer image of her makeup look. Her hair was parted down the middle and straightened down her back. In her ears were a pair of gold hoops, and there was a simple gold chain around her neck. She had a natural palette with a glossy pale pink lip. The shirt was open to reveal Gomez’s décolletage.
Gomez has been promoting her new music since the release of her single “Single Soon” on August 25. During an interview with SiriusXM Hits 1 LA, she talked about how she has high standards in relationships and that’s a good thing.
“I think I have standards, and I think I live in a world right now where boys confuse standards with high maintenance,” she explained. “I’m not ashamed to say, ‘I actually require X, Y and Z for you to be with me.’”
She added, “You got to be cool, man. Not cool in the sense that people think you’re cool. You just gotta be nice and, like, please make me laugh and also just be good to my family and people around you.”
But Gomez says she really is enjoying her single status at the moment.
“I think everybody goes through the phase of, ‘Oh, it’d be nice to, like, have someone,’ and I get that,” she said. “But I’m just enjoying where I’m at and I just want to be happy with who I am so that whenever that person comes into my life, I can just have them add on to me instead of being this insecure person that I normally used to be.”
