A departure from her Disneyesque style, the song catered to western obsession with the exotic.

"A bindi is not a costume" said one user, while another urged Selena Gomez to "leave bindis for Indian women."

With a shortage of supply, and growing demand, we certainly cant afford for the brightest minds to be snared by the Citys big ...
