AceShowbiz - Disney alum Selena Gomez made an appearance in a horror-themed short video for IGTV directed by her friend, artist Petra Collins. The video features Selena sucking on an eyeball and playing it inside her mouth in one of the scenes. Besides sucking on an eyeball, the songstress can be seen doing other disgusting things in the video.
One scene sees Selena taking a bath in a green-colored water. She hums as she puts her feet on the edge of the bathtub. The singer then holds a seemingly prosthetic face from underwater and kisses it. In another scene, a prosthetic finger can be seen hanging on a thin rope and later, Selena sucks on it. There's no background music featured in the video except from an ambient sound that successfully delivers the creepy vibe.
Another disturbing imagery in the video involves falling teeth from the "Monte Carlo" star's mouth. She catches them with her hand before the camera focuses on the teeth. Then there's an eerie and scary figure with a face full of hands stroking Selena's hair as the singer lies her head on the figure's lap. At the end of the video, the songstress can bee seen wearing white contact lenses which make her look like a blind woman.
Petra, who also directed Selena's "Fetish" and "Bad Liar" music videos, took to her official Instagram account to share some behind-the-scenes photos from the video. One of the photos sees Selena laying her head on the edge of a bathtub while staring blankly.

The artist told Vanity Fair that she and the singer wanted to make a horror film without any actual monsters. "I love 'The Exorcist' and the things that come from inside you, the things that are a little more subtle, and things that you deal with from inwards, and I feel like it's something Selena and I both love talking about... that topic is sort of dear to us," Petra said.
