Selena Gomez Sends Prayers To Taliban Shooting Victim Malala Yousufzai

Selena Gomez leaves the Steven Spielberg Pediatric Research Center after visiting the clinic on Thursday (October 18) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The next day, the 20-year-old entertainer tweeted her thoughts and prayers to a gunshot victim from the Middle East.

“My prayers, thoughts, and wells wishes to your speedy recovery. Such a symbol of strength,” Selena wrote, along with a link to an article about 15-year-old Pakistani activist Malala Yousufzai, who was shot in the head by the Taliban for promoting female education.

Malala is reportedly doing better, but still faces a long recovery.

Our thoughts are with Malala and her family during this time.

    wow these celebs are sure scary looking without their professional makeup.

  • rikki

    @Katie Butler: some of them. but selena? i don’t think she looks much different without makeup. this isn’t the first time she has been photog’d without any makeup on — she goes natural a lot

  • rikki

    it’s the fake hair that bothers me more. lol.

  • ashhey

    oh my God! Whatever she’s on she should stop it right now! Her face is huge!

  • Sera

    Forget that why does a girl get special treatment for defying what the
    Taliban. Hates! Why did she do it..and she got sent tom nice comfy
    Hospital in London..when thousand of kids get killed every year!
    They don’t get special treatment! Throw her out on the London Street!

    As 4 Selena well wishes door that wipe poo!

  • Muffin meister

    pretty girl, she looks like she has put on even more weight in her face and legs but the pics are rally far away so hard to tell.

  • krista

    malala is an activist and was fighting for women’s rights, the taliban want to target her (kill) because well one of the taliban’s beliefs is to ban girls from going to school and they are notoriously known for their repression of women
    this girl is trying to make a difference, nearly died for it and you want her to be kicked out of London?
    what difference in the world have you made lately?
    do you have any compassion? what the f—- is this world coming to?

    @ashhey: usually alcohol does that

    One of the most frustrating mistakes often made in the American media is the labeling of Pakistan as part of the Middle East. Pakistan is not part of the Middle East. Pakistan is part of South Asia, along with countries like India and Bangladesh. Having a Muslim majority population does not automatically put a country in the ‘Middle East’ category.

  • georgia

    @Sera: you disgust me. why did she do it? because she has every right to an education! can’t imagine how you’d fare if you were in her position.

  • Lacie

    Pumpkin head.

  • Tanya

    Is she sick?

  • taz

    @Anna: if it did Australia would be called ‘the middle east’

  • Laila

    Thank you, Anna. God forbid the folks on this website actually make the correction even after you’ve pointed it out…

  • m

    @Laila: calm down.. its a celebrity blog thats filled with 14 yr olds

  • hannah

    Pakistan is not part of the Middle East!

  • lmao

    @taz: omg this is so true most of melbourne and sydney are full of muslims! haha

  • Danae

    Alright, we all know you passed geography classes with an A.
    Stop bragging.

  • Nataliya (Natasha) Stasyi

    OH, What a HUGE face!!!

  • ph

    I like her fuller figure, so damn sexy!

  • Cate

    Knew there was a reason I liked her more than the other Disney/Nick stars. Good to see that at least one of the young actresses around at the moment giving some attention to such an important issue rather than just posting vapid pictures of her hair, clothes, dogs or whatever.

  • Annie

    Her face looks really bloated like she’s retaining a lot of water. I think maybe she’s on a bc pill that doesn’t agree with her or perhaps some other sort of medication. She needs to talk to her dr about getting it changed because she doesn’t look healthy. This isn’t natural weight gain.

  • Chiara

    still a baby face

  • mara

    she looks cute. I love her hair :)

  • coco

    Guys, this is just a normal girl who’s not turning into the classic hollywood skeleton like everybody else.
    Why would you accuse her of taking drugs or alchool just because she doesn’t look that good without makeup? Her face has always been puffy, her features are like that, now she just gained a little weight, which happens to normal people all the time, and her face gained a little weight too.. It’s the shape of her face, she doesn’t have a strong jaw, that’s it!

  • Salimata

    Thank you @coco. Somebody who is not putting a comment that says she is on medication. It is just the way people tend to look.

  • Trupti

    what the hell!
