You can lead a horse to pink paint, but you can’t put it in a music video.
]]>Selena Gomez has opted to cut the controversial pink horses from her
“Love You Like a Love Song” video, after coming under fire by none other
than Pink, herself. E! News reports that the ponies will be left on the
cutting room floor when the video debuts on June 22nd.
“When Selena was presented the idea for the video, no one informed her
the horses would be painted and she had assumed they would be colored in
post-production,” a production source says. “When she showed up to the
set she was very surprised to see them painted.”
The outspoken rocker (who recently gave birth to a baby girl) tweeted
her disgust after learning that several horses had been colored an
artificial hue for Gomez’s “stupid music video.” The teen pop-star’s
camp insists that “no animals were harmed and all proper precautions
were taken. A nontoxic, vegetable-based powder paint was applied via an
airbrush and removed with water.”
PETA however, disagrees. “There is are no safe ways to paint a live horse or any animal,” a spokesperson for the group says.
