Selena Gomez's representative insists no horses were harmed during filming for the singer/actress' new music video after pop star Pink expressed concerns about the animals having their coats painted for the shoot.

The "Trouble" hitmaker took to Twitter on Thursday and called on animal rights campaigners in California to take action after hearing about the stunt, which saw a number of horses being painted pink.

The singer wrote, "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."

But a spokesperson for Gomez is adamant the coloring did no harm to the horses – and video producers have the approval of an animal rights official to prove it.

The rep tells People.com, "It was important to the Production Company, Record Label and Ms. Gomez that no animals were harmed and all proper precautions were taken.

"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."
