Every Tuesday, we ask you to weigh in on questionable celebrity style moments by voting whether you’re obsessed with them or find them to be a “hot mess.” And ordinarily, we don’t mind waiting a few days to get your feedback. But every so often, we encounter a look so divisive that we need your immediate input. This is one such moment.

Selena Gomez was snapped heading into the Late Show With David Letterman in a look that was very I Dream of Jeannie goes to N.Y.C., from the Versus Versace crop top to the golden accents to her top-of-head updo. And it’s that updo we’re here to discuss.

RELATED: Vote on more bold star beauty looks here!

First, the star pulled her hair tightly into a slicked-down pony right at the top of her crown. Then she wrapped a scrunchie around the base and braided it into a thick, messy fishtail.

Scrunchies are coming back (just ask Cressida Bonas) but we have yet to see them deployed un-ironically — until now. So what do you think: Is Selena making the scrunchie sexy, and are you obsessed? Or does this look get a big “hot mess” stamp from you? Vote below and weigh in in the comments.

Reminds me of Janet Jackson in the 80s

Don’t really care about her scrunchie ‘do, but what amazes me is her face! …And I don’t mean that in a good way. You can tell so obviously that she’s a heavy drinky due to how puffy her face has gotten. :/

Nothing flattering about her particular hair-style. She has beautiful, long, hair- she should show that off more!!

It’s Madonna circa 1990.
