Selena Gomez shared that she felt 'unconnected'...
We can imagine that sometimes being famous is a teeny tiny bit annoying.
Sure, you get the free clothes. Sure, you’re guaranteed over 11 likes on all Instagram photos. But paparazzi taking pictures of you on your Tesco run? Yeah, we think we’ll pass.
So we were totally unsurprised when Selena Gomez took to Instagram to vent a little of that ‘being famous is kinda annoying’ steam yesterday.
Via a lengthy post, the 24-year-old shared that she felt ‘extremely unauthentic, unconnected to both myself and my music’.
The post elaborated: ‘I’ve never really felt like my materials, wardrobe or a video could define me. I act on a moment and fear something that hasn’t happened… I’ve always told the truth. I’m always true to my word, I’ve shown who I am but I need to rethink some areas of my life creatively and personally. Had to get that out.’
Selena captioned her post: ‘Not being negative about anything I’ve done. I’m grateful for every single moment I get here -Indonesia you were LOUD and clearly inspiring. Love you so much.’
Many fans were supportive of the singer, and the post gained over 1,000,000 likes. Comments read: ‘It’s not always easy to state your opinion, especially being in the public eye, but you should always put your own happiness first’ and: ‘I think this is a reflection of how mature and brave this girl is, this kind of honesty is just beautiful’.
Although Selena also received some negative attention, she responded with a string of utterly fabulous pictures. She shared a snap of herself on stage, which she captioned: ‘Beautiful people’.
