Selena Gomez is back from a short break and seems to be doing better than ever!
Last October, Selena canceled her tour which she was in the middle of and decided to get treatment for her emotional health and exhaustion. I can only imagine being one of the biggest celebrities and having the spotlight on you from the time that you are a child. At some point, you need to take a break and it was great that Selena decided to put her well being before work obligations.
In the new issue of InStyle magazine, the 25-year-old entertainer opens up about her break, her boyfriend and more…..
On taking a 90 day break: “Last year I canceled my tour and went away for 90 days, and it was the best thing that I ever could’ve done. I had no phone, nothing, and I was scared. But it was amazing, and I learned a lot. Everything I cared about, I stopped caring about. I came out, and it felt like, ‘OK, I can only go forward.’ And there are still days. I go to therapy. I believe in that and talking about where you are. But I’m in a really, really healthy place.”
On what it was like to leave for 90 days and then come back: “I was in the countryside and never did my hair; I took part in equine therapy, which is so beautiful. And it was hard, obviously. But I knew what my heart was saying, and I thought, ‘OK, I think this has helped me become stronger for other people.’ When I came out, I was asked to go to the American Music Awards, and everyone around me was like, ‘Do whatever makes you comfortable.’ I didn’t want my fans to have a negative view of taking care of yourself, so I just went in head-on, and I’ll tell you, the first time stepping on that carpet was so overwhelming. I felt like my back was sweating.”
On her boyfriendThe Weeknd: “I don’t depend on one area of my life to make me happy. It’s really important for me to love and nourish my friends and family and make sure I never get influenced by a guy… I’m lucky because he’s more of a best friend than anything else.”
