Selena Gomez is the latest star to catch flack for a culturally-insensitive look. The singer performed at the MTV Movie Awards wearing a bindi, a traditional Hindu symbol, on her forehead, a gesture largely unappreciated by Hindu groups. "It is not meant to be thrown around loosely for seductive effects or as a fashion accessory aiming at mercantile greed," Hindu statesman Rajan Zed told WENN.

Being a celebrity has its benefits-bulging bank accounts, private jets, assistants who cater to your every whim-but it also comes with some pretty key negatives, such as being under a constant microscope. It seem the more famous you get, the more everything you say, do, and even wear become topics of conversation-and in some cases, can cause a great deal of controversy.

This is especially evident in the wardrobe arena-lots of unthinking stars have made odd choices and worn ensembles that have been deemed culturally insensitive by everyone from civil rights organizations to bloggers. The most recent example? Former Disney queen Selena Gomez, who's being hounded for an apology by Hindu rights groups following her MTV Movie Awards performance last Sunday where she wore a bindi on her forehead.

Whether on the red carpet or in a music video, it's clear that wearing the wrong outfit can get stars into some serious hot water. Of course, this begs the question: Where are all the stars' handlers, and publicists, and entourages, and image advisors when they really need them?
