One source claims the 18-year-old was actually bullied for being there -- apparently not everyone thought she earned the right to walk the shows!

Selena Gomez was STRUTTIN' like a BOSS on her way to Good Morning America in NYC on Thursday.
The singer looked just a tad like a court jester in her print Peter Pilotto outfit, especially in the context of that regular street scene with average Joes rocking their sweatshirts.
HOWEVER! She downright OWNED every inch of the ensem, from the ruffled peplum and midriff cut-out all the way down to the tapered slacks and black patent pumps.
We salute you, Selenita!
