Selena Gomez praises the Iranian women whose “Calm Down” video went viral

Selena Gomez recently praised a group of Iranian women who created a viral video showing how to dance to her hit single, “Calm Down.” In an Instagram post, Gomez wrote that she was “so inspired” by the women’s video and encouraged her fans to watch it. The video, which has been viewed over 1.3 million times, features a group of four Iranian women dancing to the song as a sign of solidarity with women’s rights in the country. The video was created in response to the Iranian government’s crackdown on public expressions of dissent and has been widely shared on social media with the hashtag #LetsCalmDown. Gomez expressed her admiration for the women’s boldness and thanked them for using her song to make a statement. She also wrote that she hoped the video was a “small sign of hope” and a reminder “that we all deserve to express ourselves.”
