Her new thriller Getaway bombed at the box office over the weekend.
But Selena Gomez showed no sign of disappointment as she took to the stage to promote her new album Stars Dance in Amsterdam, Netherlands, on Tuesday.
Although, the energetic performance may have been due to a gratifying development in her music career as she performed to a sold out audience at the Heineken Music Hall after topping the charts in the US earlier this summer.

The popstrel ran through her choreographed dance routines in black stiletto boots, featuring a sexy high lace up design.
Wearing a pair of extremely small leather shorts the 21-year-old showed off her slim legs in sheer leggings.
Completing her stage costume was a slinky white shirt as she wore her dark locks in a contrived mess of tangled curls, flowing over her shoulders.

And while the 5ft5in star’s performance was a triumph in the Netherlands, back home in the US was a different story.
The former Disney princess turned dramatic actress’ latest serious endeavour Getaway was a total failure at the box office over what is normally a lucrative holiday weekend in America.
The action thriller, co-starring Ethan Hawke, drew in less than the predicted $6million over the long Labor Day weekend.

Meanwhile, at the MTV VMAs last week Gomez cosied up to the We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together singer Taylor Swift, who looked older than her 23 years in a plunging black dress and smart up ‘do.
Scooping up the award for Best Pop Video with Come & Get Me, the songstress beat out hot competition from Miley Cyrus, Bruno Mars and Justin Timberlake.

Although she looked remarkably fresh-faced at the awards show, she is currently in the middle of a 56 city world tour for the album.
Having just played at various cities in Canada, the starlet has now moved on to the European leg of her tour.
The city she performed in prior to Amsterdam was Oslo.
