When we peeped Selena Gomez's Flaunt Magazine spread last week, we were totally digging her blunt bob. Despite our positive feelings, in the corresponding short film that was just released, it's clear Selena was not feeling her new 'do.

The video begins with Selena in bed, in the same lingerie/skirt combo from the shoot. Also in bed? That shirtless guy! He's known by his family, friends, and fans as Shiloh Fernandez. He plays guitar (shirtless), nuzzles Selena (shirtless), and smiles (shirtless). Just as we were getting used to him, he disappears.

It appears that Selena sets out to find him (uh, yeah, we would too *stuffs wagging tongue back into mouth*), wearing the mustard yellow trench from her shoot. In the hallway, she passes a woman wearing a black plague doctor mask, black dress, and black coat. They pass without acknowledging one another, just as everyone does in hallways.

The strange thing, however, is that the masked stranger is also Selena: we'd recognize that messy crop anywhere. How is she in two places at once? Why is she masked? Where's that shirtless guy? This film raises many questions in just 3 minutes.

Non-masked Selena then changes into a shimmery sleeveless dress and heads up to the roof on her search. Up there, she meets a clothed man (bummer), shows him a picture, and he shakes his head. He hasn't seen the person she's looking for.

She changes AGAIN, this time into the white blazer and wool pants she wore to sit on the street in her shoot. Sel shows a woman the same photo, but she hasn't seen anyone either. Her search on the street is just as fruitless as her search on the roof. Selly is having a bad day.

Exhausted from her unsuccessful investigation, Inspector ClouSelena (BRB, seeking options from The Weinstein Company) returns home, strips down, and collapses onto her bed. Unfortunately, the shirtless man is not there. The photo falls from her hand, and we see she hasn't been searching for the man at all. She's been searching for herself with long hair. ... Hold up, what?

She's been showing strangers a glamour shot of herself, and they couldn't recognize the person holding the photo was the same person IN the photo because she got a haircut? Doesn't she know where her hair went? I wasn't there, but I'm pretty sure it went into the garbage after she/a hairdresser cut it off? Mystery solved, Selena: you didn't even have to show me the picture while wearing beautiful clothing!

But seriously, if I were you, Selly, I'd send out a whole search party for Shiloh. Last we saw of him, he was on the roof. Good luck.
