It seems to be a classic among all the ‘Disney girls’, but Selena Gomez (29) he has been through a lot throughout all his years of his career. That is why today, at 29, he is one of the few people in the world who they do not have any social network installed on their phone, even though they have an account on all of them. The reason? Years ago he gave control of the mimas to his assistant to ensure his mental health.
In an interview that the singer has given to the American edition of the magazine ‘Elle’, she spoke of the challenges she has faced in the last decade and why knowing that she was helping others made her keep going: ” My lupus, my kidney transplant, chemotherapy, have a mental illness, go through very public heartbreak… All of these things should have brought me down. Every time he went through something, he would say to myself, ‘What else? What else am I going to have to deal with? You’re going to help people. ‘ That’s really what kept me going. There could have been a time when I wasn’t strong enough and did something to hurt me. “
He also explained the reasons that led him to remove Instagram from his phone in 2017 and why he handed over the reins (and passwords) of his social media accounts to his assistant: “I don’t have it on my phone, so there is no temptation. Suddenly I had to learn to be with myself. That was annoying, because before I could spend hours looking at other people’s lives. I found myself going down almost two years on someone’s feed, and then I’d realize that ‘I don’t even know this person! Now I inform myself in the proper way. When my friends have something to talk about, they call me and say, ‘Oh, I did this.’ They don’t tell me, ‘Wait, have you seen my post?‘”.
In addition, she wants to be remembered for the good things she has done, not for what she has achieved with her social media posts: “I tell myself: ‘I have to do something else. When I’m gone, I want people to remember me for my heart. ‘ Everything I am linked to has a beneficial aspect. If something good doesn’t come out of it, I’m not going to do it. I don’t need money, I need people who want to fight with me. “
Finally, and to the delight of his fans, he has announced that he will never ever stop making music: “I don’t think I’ll stop making music … I’m not saying I want a Grammy. I just feel like I’m doing the best I can, and that everything revolves around me “.
