It’s Hollywood. She’s a woman. They’ll forget about her in a few years. If that’s her goal, she’s set. Look older than 15 over there and they either chop you up ’til your nose collapses or throw you in shark pit.
Selena Gomez had a lot of shit to say in a recent interview with Vogue:
“Look, I love what I do. And I’m aware of how lucky I am, but — how can I say this without sounding weird? I just really can’t wait for people to forget about me.”
In case you live under a rock and didn’t know, Selena Gomez has lupus and has been having a really terrible time. She even went to rehab for anxiety and depression for 90 days in 2016. She said of the experience:
“You have no idea how incredible it felt to just be with six girls, real people who couldn’t give two shits about who I was, who were fighting for their lives. It was one of the hardest things I’ve done, but it was the best thing I’ve done.”
Selena Gomez is having about as easy of a time coming to terms with the fact that the world sucks as all of us, which is to say, not an easy time at all. And she has the added fun of assholes like me poking at her with a stick for money all day long.
“I was so used to performing for kids. At concerts I used to make the entire crowd raise up their pinkies and make a pinky promise never to allow anybody to make them feel that they weren’t good enough. Suddenly I have kids smoking and drinking at my shows, people in their 20s, 30s, and I’m looking into their eyes, and I don’t know what to say. I couldn’t say, ‘Everybody, let’s pinky-promise that you’re beautiful!’ It doesn’t work that way, and I know it because I’m dealing with the same shit they’re dealing with.”
At least dating The Weeknd might help cheer her up. If his music is anything to go by, he’s probably an optimistic and fun-loving guy.
Good luck, Selena.
