This is a Selena Gomez we didn’t know about. She gives ZERO fucks about what you think of her, and she is just trying to figure out her life like every last person on this earth.
Selena Gomez recently sat down with “GQ” to talk about life, but things got real. Here are the top five takeaways that let us know she just DGAF.
Because Gomez is just living her life, doing her job and trying to be like any other 23-year-old.
First, and most importantly, she is sick and tired of everyone assuming that she had to go to rehab for substance abuse when she was dealing with the very serious illness, lupus.
“No, no, no, no, no,” Gomez told GQ when asked about being in rehab. “First off, this is something that everyone always wants to fixate on. I got diagnosed with lupus. My mom had a very public miscarriage. So I had to cancel my tour. I needed time to just be okay. And I was going through leukemia [possibly meaning chemotherapy], and I went to two different locations for those treatments. It’s really frustrating, because I am 100 percent allowed to have that.” Yes, Selena! You tell them that you just needed to be a human.
Low-key, she is disgusted with adults who are fascinated by child stars growing up in the public eye.
“We’re easy targets. Every single kid who was brought up like this is an easy target,” Gomez told GQ about transitioning from child star to adult. “It’s disgusting, because it’s interesting to grown adults that these kids go through weird things because they’re figuring out, ‘Do I like this? Do I love this? Maybe I love this person. Oh, I’m exposed to this, people are reporting my every move and this and that because of Instagram and Twitter and you can find out everything.’” She totally has a point.
She’s not as easily offended as you might think. Just read this story of her awkward moment with P. Diddy.
Selena: “Or when P. Diddy gave me his valet ticket once. Do you know what I mean?”
Interviewer: Wait, no, I don’t—why did he give you his valet ticket?
S: “Because he thought I was the valet lady.”
S: “Yeah. Look, I see all of it. I don’t care — I actually laughed hysterically when it happened. But I get it. I know what all of it is.”
She is a risk-taker. Like, leaving her phone behind with the interviewer while going to the bathroom.
She was either so trusting of the interviewer that she though her phone was safe, or she was hoping for him to try to go through her phone to see how ballsy he really is. Either way, queen status.
She has been through it all in the entertainment industry, and she is having a hard time thinking anyone is being truly genuine. #Truth ✊
“It’s either of two extremes,” she says. “Either you’re going to succumb to it and be surrounded by all the noise and enjoy it and get the rush from it, or you’re going to be so far off of it because you don’t trust anyone or think any of it’s genuine. That’s the girl that I am.”
