The heart wants what it wants… just ask Selena Gomez.

Just hours after photos surfaced of Selena, 24, kissing The Weeknd (whose real name is Abel Makkonen Tesfaye), the former Disney Channel star posed topless for famed photographer Mert Alas.

Fans were quick to call the brunette beauty a hypocrite for posing for the scandalous photo following her powerful speech at the American Music Awards, where she called out those who show off their bodies for attention.

"I had to stop, because I had everything and I was absolutely broken inside," she said on stage. "I kept it all together enough to where I would never let you down but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down."

She continued, "I don't want to see your bodies on Instagram. I want to see what's in here. I'm not trying to get validation, nor do I need any. All I can say from the bottom of my heart is I'm so grateful that I have the opportunity to be able to share what I love every single day with people who I love.''

Someone else who was not impressed with Selena's selfie was Bella Hadid, who ended her relationship with the "Starboy" singer this past November.

The 20-year-old model promptly unfollowed Justin Bieber's ex on the social media platform just hours after seeing her getting cozy with her former boyfriend.

"Their schedules have been too hard to coordinate and he is focusing on finishing and promoting his album," a source told People magazine at the time. "They still have a great deal of love for one another and will remain friends."
