Selena Gomez breaks for a photo during quick change.

Let’s start with a disclaimer. This is not at all to say that we weren’t already attuned to the fact that Selena Gomez is undoubtedly one of the most hard-working starlets in the game right now. From covering magazines to launching perfumes to acting, hosting awards shows and dating Justin Bieber, the girl accomplishes more in one day than we can check off our to-do lists in a month. (Note: that may also just be a personal time management problem, but we digress…) But it looks like that balls-to-the-wall work ethic has finally caught up with Selenita, and she’s landed herself a case of the sniffles and right in the midst of her Latin American tour! *cue a wave of sadfaces*
Sel posted this pic to Instagram last night during a quick wardrobe change between numbers at her Argentina concert. At a time when we would be holing ourselves up in sweatpants, a messy bun, and the flu season’s hottest accessory, tissues stuffed up both nostrils, Selena is belting out dance hits in sparkly stagewear. Flooded sinuses be damned, Sel looks nary a degree under the weather in this hot pink one-shoulder frock with its sweetheart sculpted bodice and all that flattering draping. Her cheeks and lips are perfectly rouged while her nose gives no indication of facial tissue rawness. If she weren’t also THE most adorable girl in the world, we’d be shaking our fists screaming, “HOW IN THE??!?!” and a string of obscenities. Instead, we just look to Selena as inspiration as we sip a two-liter bottle of Emergen-C in preparation for the musical chairs of germs that is winter.
