In Focus: When "It" Girls Became Fangirls

In Focus: When

On July 31, Manila totally got why Justin Bieber has been saying sorry, as Selena Gomez wowed a jampacked Mall of Asia Arena with her hotness—in looks, talent, and attitude.

If there was even an inch of doubt on anyone's mind about Selena's worth, the 24-year-old pop star banished it the moment she stepped on the stage. She's just total #goals through and through—whether in the kickass all-leather ensemble for her opening song or in the billowy bright pink number she donned for the final segment of the Philippine leg of her Revival Tour, presented by Smart Music Live.

And mind you, her crowd last night was a star-studded one—in the sea of Selena-tics danced, screamed, and cheered for Selena are no other than some of the Philippine's most beautiful faces, "it" girls in their own right: Liza Soberano, Kathryn Bernardo, Alex Gonzaga, Ylona Garcia, and Angel Locsin. Yep, Selena's got a lot of star power packed in her petite frame, that makes even our famous celebrities get uber excited about seeing her:


Liza was the luckiest of them all as she was able to sneak in backstage for a photo op with her idol.


Kathryn, meanwhile, can't get over Selena's abs (I don't think anyone will ever able to anyway!).


This outfit + her perfect body!!! Aaahhh ?? I love you ??

Alex expressed out loud exactly what most (single) girls were thinking.

Who says, who says you're not perfect, Selena? You are—and as you closed your concert with a reminder to rise above and just "Kill Them With Kindness," Manila couldn't have been in more awe of you.
