Selena Gomez has caused a stir online with her latest magazine photo-shoot.

The former-Disney-princess-turned-‘Spring Breaker’ appears on the cover of the new issue of V magazine, posing topless in a pair of denim shorts.

However, it’s not the near-nudity that has caused outrage, but the fact that some people think the photos make Selena look younger than her 22 years.

In the topless photo, Selena looks out to the camera while sporting some tight curls, some 1980s-inspired hoop earrings and a Minnie Mouse-esque hair bow.

Several Twitter users have shared their distaste for the pictures online, with many saying the new photo-shoot makes them “uncomfortable”.

Meanwhile, photos inside the magazine see the ‘Come & Get It’ singer wearing a cow-print cowgirl hat, a gingham bikini and several flower hair clips, a look which has also been criticised for infantilising her.

The new issue also features an interview with Selena by her former co-star, James Franco, where she discusses her past relationships and opens up about having depression.

Selena isn’t the only former child star to be going topless this week, though, after her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber whipped his shirt off to promote his forthcoming comedy roast, in honour of his 21st birthday next month.

Justin is pelted with eggs in the new slow-motion clip, which alludes to an incident last year when he was charged for egging his neighbour’s home.

The latest issue of V magazine, featuring Selena on the cover, hits newsstands on 26 February.
