Selena Gomez Thinks You’re Creepy

Selena Gomez, who I thought was Vanessa Hudgens until very recently, gave an interview with Business of Fashion in which she discussed how uncomfortable the attention she got from older men as a teenager made her. I wasn’t aware that Selena had even met James Woods. I seriously didn’t realize her and Vanessa Hudgens were two people, though. I just rolled them into one brunette Disney-girl blob in my mind.

Anyway, Gomez said this when asked if she found the idea of fake appealing:

I think it changed when I started getting known for things that weren’t [related to] my work. That’s when my passion started to really feel like it was going further and further away. And that scared me. When I was younger, it was all fun to me. When I did state fairs and 100 people would show up, I would be stoked. That was the best feeling in the world. But when I got older, I started to become exposed to the truth behind some stuff and that’s when it flipped a little bit. I realised that, “Oh this is actually really hard, and kind of slimy in certain areas,” and I didn’t realise that certain people wanted certain things from me. My confidence went through a lot with that.

She went on to add:

I remember just feeling really violated when I was younger, even just being on the beach. I was maybe 15 or 16 and people were taking pictures — photographers. I don’t think anyone really knew who I was. But I felt very violated and I didn’t like it or understand it, and that felt very weird, because I was a young girl and they were grown men. I didn’t like that feeling. Then, I would say the last season of my show, I was probably 18 years old, is when I felt like the flip happened. I didn’t feel like it was about my art as much. I was on the fourth season of the show, and I felt like I was outgrowing it. I wanted something different and obviously I fell in love for the first time. There was all this stuff that was happening and I didn’t know what to do.

I’m sorry, but she was on Wizards of Waverly Place, not a West End production of Hamlet. Why is she talking about “her art”? She got cast on a show because Disney has basically been hiring girls who fit into one of two molds for two decades, ever since they found Christy Carlson Romano and Hilary Duff. There’s a reason Disney shows only air for three seasons or so, and it’s because they consider them completely disposable.

Of course, I have a bit of empathy for her. Sure, she’s rich and famous basically because she used to sing with a giant purple dinosaur, but she has some issues. She’s got lupus (take that, Doctor House) and she wants everyone to forget about her. She’s also apparently been trying to get The Weeknd, who looks exactly like her dad, to get her pregnant so he won’t leave her. So, I mean, maybe cool it with the calling other people creepy, Ivanka.

So … a teenage girl is disturbed by the idea of thousands of creepy old men having sexual fantasies about her. This is what we used to call “healthy”.

Such objective journalism. You must be proud. Justin has actually been completely supportive of his girlfriend’s stint in a facility, which was clearly triggered by her psychotic mother dragging her for her role in a Woody Allen movie and her ongoing lupus condition.

Considering the author of this trash post claims he has – probably deservedly – suffered from depression, how repellent that he would seek to dump guilt undeservedly on Bieber’s shoulders over Selena’s timeout, which would exacerbate Bieber’s own depression (which he lives with and previously revealed). Kindness and accurate reporting matter.

Justin is not the cause of Selena ‘s depression. I think Selena works too much after her horrible year. If the author thinks that, it’s obvious he does not know anything in medicine. Having cancer does not make you an oncologist… If this fake journalist knowed anything in internal medicine, he would have heard of neuro-lupus even the main cause of Selena’s problem has a name : Mandy ! I think Justin is the solution and not the cause of Selena’s anxiety. When you see them together, there is a rare alchemy. As usually, RockrollerBlues has a good opinion about… Read more »

Having had a kidney transplant myself, you don’t just go back to partying. You are taking drugs that keep you alive, and without them your body will attack and destroy the new organ. Other substances can interfere with that balance, so you’re told to not do any drugs without consulting your kidney doctor first so they can greenlight them or not. The girl is an addict. Once and always. So she probably needs help because the consequences for her to relapse are higher than a normal person because of that new kidney. Plus, it is flat out disrespectful to the… Read more »

Do you know personnaly Miss Gomez ? Do you think that you say about any transplant (which is right), Miss Gomez does not know it ? What makes you think she is an addict ? Is it because she looks happy? Has she ever been taken (or Justin Bieber) with narcotics? If yes when? Do you think she is so inhuman and stupid to despise the wonderful gift that her friend Francia has made for her? Sorry, this seems to me to be a web of preconceived ideas. To be a millionaire does not make you a fool. What would… Read more »
