Superstar Selena Gomez is opening up about her career. In the September 2021 issue of Elle magazine, out now, she speaks candidly about fame and what it means to be in control, and whether she’ll ever quit music!
On the challenges she’s faced over the years, Selena said: “My lupus, my kidney transplant, chemotherapy, having a mental illness, going through very public heartbreaks—these were all things that honestly should have taken me down. Every time I went through something, I was like, ‘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 would have done something to hurt myself.”
On whether she’d ever quit music, Selena revealed that she never will! “I don’t think I’ll ever quit making music…I’m not saying I want a Grammy. I just feel like I’m doing the best I can, and it’s all about me. Sometimes, that can really get to me. You’re pouring yourself out.” Read more here and let us know what you think.
