Actress Selena Gomez is blunt about her psychiatric retreat, her social media breakout, and her authenticity. However, she’s not so chatty when it comes to romance.
“Look, I love what I do, and I’m aware of how lucky I am, buthow can I say this without sounding weird? I just really can’t wait for people to forget about me,” Gomez answered when asked about her new beau, The Weeknd, during her American Vogue interview for their April cover.
The couple was last seen walking hand-in-hand while sneaking some kisses in Toronto, Canada, the “Starboy” singer’s hometown.
As for the former Disney star, Gomez shared that she enjoyed spending time with children that she won’t mind being interrupted. She gladly took a short pause of what she’s doing to talk and take some pictures with them.
“Somebody I used to hang out with would always get very frustrated with me,” she stated, probably talking about Justin Bieber, whom she had a three-year relationship with. “But I have a hard time saying no to children,” she added.
The “It Ain’t Me” singer also talked about the time when she turned herself to a psychiatric facility in Tennessee. Gomez was in the middle of her “Revival” tour when she decided to walk away from the limelight. She denied having addiction or eating disorder.
“Tours are a really lonely place for me. My self-esteem was shot. I was depressed, anxious,” she explained and added that she started experiencing panic attacks before going onstage, or after leaving the stage.
“Basically I felt I wasn’t good enough, wasn’t capable,” she stated.
Gomez admitted that “People so badly wanted me to be authentic” which gave her a relief. She wants to be honest with her fans, which makes it easier for her to mingle with them because she has nothing to hide.
Sadly, for her Instagram followers, the most followed artist (bagging 110 million followers) has come to a decision to delete the mobile app on her phone. Her assistant is the one managing her account now. She felt that it’s more damaging than rewarding.
