Selena Gomez looked incredible as she posed up a storm for her first ever US Vogue magazine cover shoot. It’s the first time the singer has appeared on the front of the prestigious publication, and while she looked her best in a number of floral dresses and designs, she also bared all in a revealing interview.
Selena has been very open with her friends about struggles with mental health, and she has admitted that touring is an incredibly lonely place for her to be.
Being on the road left her feeling depressed and anxious, and even suffering panic attacks just before she got on stage, or immediately after the show.
“Basically I felt I wasn’t good enough, wasn’t capable,” she said in the April 2017 issue of Vogue, while referencing her own fanbase getting older as her career progressed. “I was so used to performing for kids.”
Selena admitted she didn’t know how to talk to the more mature audiences – especially because she was struggling herself, and didn’t know how to help people deal with their “s**t”.
Now, the star has learned to take a step back from frame – and she’s currently got no movies in production, along with no pressure from record labels.
“It feels like I don’t have to be holding my breath and waiting for somebody to judge a piece of work that I’m doing,” she added, while explaining that while less than 20 people have her phone number, only a couple of them are famous.
She also championed Dialectical Behavior Therapy – which is used more broadly after originally being developed to treat borderline personality disorder.
“I wish more people would talk about therapy,” she said. “We girls, we’re taught to be almost too resilient, to be strong and sexy and cool and laid-back, the girl who’s down. We also need to feel allowed to fall apart.”
