Selena Gomez is an absolute stunner with curly locks and a sexy sequined gold dress and black knee-high boots while filming a music video for a single from her new album Rare. Selena's chart-topping album isn't the only thing making headlines recently, however ... the singer has caused quite a stir in Hollywood and beyond by claiming in a recent interview that Justin Bieber emotionally abused her!

NPR reached out to Justin Bieber for comment and didn't get anything back by press time. So far he hasn't made a public comment about Selena's accusations, but we're waiting ...
