Selena Gomez shows off huge new thigh tattoo prior to AMAs

Last night's American Music Awards has left plenty of talking points in the fallout, but it seems people simply cannot get over Selena Gomez.

The 27-year-old kicked off the American Music Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles with a performance of two of her new singles - 'Lose You To Love Me' and 'Look At Her Now'.

Check out Selena's AMAs performance in the video below:

The singer first appeared on the red carpet looking absolutely radiant - donning neon lime green mini-dress and pair of matching neon lime green pumps. This was the star's first red carpet since revealing how body shaming "messed her up".

Speaking to Raquelle Stevens on her podcast Giving Back Generation, Selena revealed that dealing with judgment online was really difficult, saying:

"I experienced [body shaming] with my weight fluctuation for the first time. I have lupus and deal with kidney issues and high blood pressure, so I deal with a lot of health issues, and for me, that’s when I really started noticing more of the body-image stuff."

She added how people commenting on her body "got to [her] big-time" and "really messed [her] up for a bit."

Selena's new album has been slated for release on January 10, 2020 - check out the trailer below:

However, it seems Selena's followers absolutely LOVE the latest modification to her body, in the form of a huge inking of praying hands holding rosary beads.

Sharing a collection of polaroid photographs to her 162 million Instagram followers, Selena revealed that she has indeed got a huge tattoo on her upper thigh. She captioned the image: "AMAs day.. more to come.."

Many of the singer's Selenators (that is the collective name for her fans, I promise I didn't just make that up) took to Twitter to share their appreciation of the new inking:

Gomez also tagged the New York City tattoo parlor Bang Bang Tattoo in her post.

Writing on her Instagram, Selena revealed the details behind her upcoming album: "You can now preorder my new album, out January 10, 2020. This album is my diary from the past few years and I can’t wait for you to hear it. Title, art and track list coming soon. [sic]"
