Terry Richardson is a world-famous, 47-year old fashion photographer and he probably has the best job in the world for a guy. Sure, he’s been accused of sexually exploiting young models in the past, but those models and the equally famous fashion designers have almost always come to his defense. Andif he was, in fact, a creepy ol’ pervert, models and actresses would probably stop agreeing to put on his trademark eyeglasses and give him the thumbs up after each shoot.
His latest subject is 20-year old Spring Breakers star Selena Gomez, whom Richardson shot for the April issue of Harper’s Bazaar. I really only know three things about Gomez:
- She’s the star of Spring Breakers, in theaters now.
- She sang that “Love you like a love song” song and the lyrics kill my brain cells at a terrifying pace every time I even think about them.
- She used to date Justin Bieber, who currently seems to be teetering on meltdown, while Gomez appears poised to break out as a big(ger) star.
It certainly can’t hurt her chances that people go nuts over Richardson’s photo shoots, and these trademark shots of flannel and nerd glasses – previously seen on our dear friend Kate Upton – are probably about to be posted everywhere. So it’s safe to say that this is going to be a pretty good weekend for Gomez.
