Selena Gomez Fell Onstage, But Luckily She Was Lip Syncing, So We Barely Noticed

Selena Gomez performing in Virginia October 2013

After long years of lying in wait, Selena Gomez‘s shoes finally enacted their revenge last night, and made her fall down onstage during her own concert. You might think that they overreacted and did something out of line, but bear in mind that these little guys have been along for the ride for a long time now. They’ve been strapped onto her feet while she phoned it in at many a performance, and they’re just not gonna take it anymore.

Selena was performing at the Patriot Center in Virginia on October 10th when her shoes saw their opportunity. It was during the song ‘Slow Down’, when no one would suspect a tumble could be imminent. That way, even if Selena discovered her shoes’ devious plot and asked for help through her song, everyone would misinterpret it as an original lyric. She can say ‘slow down the song’ as many times as she wants, but nobody will every slow down that song. It’s like having a heart attack during a game of charades. No one will help you because they’ll think it’s all part of the game. These are very devious shoes.

And more devious than you even think, because at the same time they embarrassed her horribly by taking her to the ground during a dance move, they revealed that she was utterly and completely lipsyncing. When she accidentally jumps off the stage and falls to the ground, you can hear a little squeal of surprise that I’m pretty sure comes from her, but the vocal track never falters. It just sings all the way through it, without missing a beat. Makes it pretty obvious that she was singing over it or not at all. Which I’ve always suspected, but never been able to prove. Until the shoes. The shoooooeeeeeees!

Look for yourself, though, at their merciless take down of a pop star.

CURSE YOU SHOES. Let’s just hope that Selena takes the Beyonce road and admits the lip syncing right away instead of pretending that her dancing was the only thing she was half-assing that night.

    I can’t stop watching this oh my god.

      Slip and fall aside, I’m a big fan of the way she runs back onto the stage.

  • Rachel

    I’ve sadly listened to this song a lot and can tell she was singing over the track at the beginning, but once it got to the bridge, she just stopped singing along.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Hahahaha yeah based on previous performances I think her lip syncing is kind of doing us all a solid.

  • Beth

    Why do the male backup dancers look like little Biebers (oversized baseball caps, that same high topped sneakers he wears) – or is that just the fashion today?

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      She doesn’t know how to perform without his calming presence nearby.

    She can sing sitting down with a microphone and someone else playing guitar for her. When she dont have to do anything else. She can sing okey. But she to me isnt a strong singer. I mean I like her and have grown up liking her but Im slowly getting away from liking her. Its like Britney. When she started lip-syncing and not being honest about it, I stopped watching her live stuff cause if I want to hear the recorded version of a song I can do that on youtube or by buying it.

    Thats why I love Demi so much. She dont use that stuff cause she feels like its like cheating on your fans. She perform with strep throat and stuff without backtracks and pree record. She may not sound as good then but its still live and it gives her respect. So when she falls or mess up lyrics its just funny and makes it more real.

    I would actually rather hear Selena sing for real and really bad instead faking it. At least that would be her true self and not her trying to be something that she’s not. I hope she gets asked about it and is honest about not singing on that song at least It will make up for it being fake in the first place. To me that is a tad bit more acceptable if she’s honest.

    But I will never get why her album went to number 1 and Demi didn’t. It must be the promotion and Demi focusing on both the cd and x factor cause it sure as heck isn’t the quality of the voice, talent or even quality of the cd. And its annoying that Selenas fans think she is better then Demi cause her cd took the #1 spot. Its one thing saying Ariana is better cause at least she can sing so there its about taste, how you like music and vocals to sound. But to say Selena is better is just weird to say. Selena have catchy songs but Demi has a passion and slaying vocals. Ariana has a good voice but has some growing to do in my eyes. I get bored fast listening to Ariana but again its just my taste.

    And normally I dont even care who is better but its all over timelines on twitter and blog sites and Its annoying but at the same time really funny. (Funny in an annoying way).

      Yeah I’d prefer she give it her best effort instead of mouthing over a recorded track. Or just be honest about it, anyway, like you said.

    • imyourtroll^_^

      her voice is too weak…

    • MyBiggestFan

      Selena didn’t go #1 she made a video prematurely stating she went #1 only to find out she didn’t make it

    • Eyeballs

      Really? Then I should go hide somewhere cause I only heard she went #1. I Read that on twitter and didn’t hear anything about her not being #1.

  • noonecansaveu

    lmao mess !

  • Nice Try

    Are you kidding me? What a cruel, ill-written and biased article. You are trying to bring someone down for your own amusement. Whose the one sitting on their ass writing a bad article for a gossip site about someone they don’t know, and whose the one on a world tour making millions of dollars saving people’s lives and making people happy? Exactly. You aren’t doing anything. Put that in your blog – or better still, stop inflicting your opinions on the world.
