Lovely in leather! Selena Gomez flashes tummy in crop top during tour stop in Singapore after being asked to downplay her attire in Malaysia
Selena Gomez's Revival Tour has encountered its share of troubles.
Yet on Wednesday night, the 24-year-old was the consummate professional during her one-night-only engagement in Singapore.
The Good For You singer was seen taking the stage at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, rocking tight black leather pants and a matching sleeveless turtleneck top that bared her midriff.

Her debut in Singapore follows a string of worrisome developments for Gomez during the Asian leg of her tour, which is named for her 2015 sophomore album.
On Friday night, she rang in her birthday with a performance in Jakarta, Indonesia. Yet the next night, she posted a message to Instagram detailing her feelings of discontent.

'Tonight I felt extremely unauthentic [sic], unconnected to both my myself and my music,' she wrote. 'I’ve never really felt like my materials, wardrobe or a video could define me. I act on a moment and fear something that hasn’t happened.
'I’m stagnant,' she fretted, 'I stay still and don’t just sit with myself first and ask "is this where I am, whole heartedly?"
'I’ve always told the truth,' she insisted. 'I’m always true to my word, I’ve shown who I am but I need to rethink some areas of my life creatively and personally.'

The Slow Down performer closed the message: 'Had to get that out.'
She did clarify in her caption, 'Not being negative about anything I've done. I'm grateful for every single moment I get here - Indonesia you were LOUD and clearly inspiring. Love you so much.'
Moreover, the entire post has since vanished from her Instagram.
The source of her unhappiness - and whether or how it was resolved - remains unconfirmed.

Hafez Sabri, their dakwah committee chairman, claimed, 'The presence of the American-born singer, who is synonymous with sexy appearances, would tarnish the sanctity of the month of Syawal which is being celebrated in earnest and further stoke the hedonistic culture among the country’s youths.'
This time, it's clear how the most followed person on Instagram got through the crisis. According to the Malay Mail, she 'kept to the guidelines for attire' in the region, and the show went on.
