If you have perused Twitter—or any celebrity news source—in the past 24 hours, you’d know there is a lot of chatter about Selena Gomez going on. She was just spotted making out with Canadian pop star The Weeknd, who very recently broke up with Bella Hadid, thereby prompting Hadid to unfollow Gomez on Instagram.

But Selena has given folks even more reason to keep talking. Photographer Mert Alas just shared a very sexy behind-the-scenes snap from a photo shoot with the “Hands to Myself” singer, and it lit up the Internet like a sexy candelabra.

In the sultry shot, Gomez looks back at her derrière in the mirror whilst Mert snaps the photo, his duck face the only low point of the shot. On proud display is both her string thong and her tasteful mid-back tattoo in Arabic, which translates to “love yourself first.”

With shots like these and too many sexy Instagram selfies to count, we’d say Selena is doing a pretty good job at that.
