NEW YORK, N.Y. (WUNF) — Although Selena Gomez has been an extremely successful musician over the past few years — she admits to feeling held down and trapped in the same place. Selena opened up to Yahoo and shared with us what her upcoming album, Revival really means to her.
“I’m not good with change. I’m very loyal and committed, and I like being that way. But at the same time, I was being shoved into this corner … not forcefully or anything, but I felt like I was being held in one place, and I was just desperate to be out of it and to feel something else,” Selena shared.
She also added, “I wanted to be heard. That’s why I reached the point where I needed to make some really big changes in my life and do it all at once and take a chance.” AW! We hear you Selena!
Selena also opened up about dealing with social media. Just because she has been in the industry for a while — does not mean she is immune to the hate and negativity that social media is capable of bringing.
Selena spilled, “I’ve had a week of deleting my Instagram off my phone, so I didn’t have it, and I would have to go to my laptop if I wanted to post something — so that I wouldn’t get caught up in it. You always get wrapped up in it.”
“I don’t know how I can get through it other than to just know that it isn’t real. I have to put my phone down and look up and look at life and know that I’m in this moment that I’ll never have again, and I need to enjoy it and not give in to those people,” she also added.
We totally agree! Social media can be super fun and helpful but you should also log off and just enjoy life right in front of you!
Selena even gave some advice to younger fan about dealing with social media! “You just have to challenge yourself and guard your heart, because now with social media there is so much access to people’s feelings and their hearts more than ever. That’s my main thing. I am so terrified for my little sister to go to school because everything has changed and gotten a little bit more intense.”
We are sure with a big sister as wonderful as Selena — her sister will be totally fine at school and know how to handle the toughest situations!
