Selena Gomez's MTV Movie Awards Hair Reminds Us Of A Dr. Seuss Character (PHOTOS)

Selena Gomez was slated to perform her new single, "Come & Get It," at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards. But she kicked things off a bit earlier on the red carpet, showing up in a hair-raising new 'do. (See what we did there?)

Complementing her gold minidress, Selena had her hair teased up at the top, and the voluminous braid snaked down the back of her head.

We're having trouble deciding if this is dinosaur chic (kind of looks like something from the Triassic era), Dr. Seuss-inspired (Cindy Lou Who, much?) or if it was just an instance of Selena's hairstylist getting creative. Regardless, we can't stop staring at it.

See for yourself below. What do you think of Gomez's hair?
