Disney star Selena Gomez has painted a horse pink for her latest video shoot.

The 18-year-old was pictured filming a clip for her new single I Love You Like a Love Song on Malibu beach yesterday.

And not everyone is best pleased. Particularly the singer Pink (although we're sure she likes the colour), who is a PETA supporter.

The star branded the video 'cruel' on Twitter, writing: "If there are any animal activists around Malibu - at Leo Cabrillo State beach, there are horses being painted for a stupid music video. Shame.

"Artists should be more aware and responsible for their actions."

However, Selena's camp insists that no animals were harmed during filming.

"It was important to the Production Company, Record Label and Ms. Gomez that no animals were harmed and all proper precautions were taken,' Gomez's spokesperson said in a statement to People magazine.

"A non toxic, vegetable-based powder paint was applied via an airbrush and removed with water. An official from the Humane Society was on set supervising."

Selena shot the video in a floaty tie-dyed dress with a long-haired lothario co-star.
