Selena Gomez Reveals She’s Kinda Disgusted With Adults Obsessed With Child Stars

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.”

I: What?!

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.”

Selena Gomez Tells Senate to Pass Equality Act, Credits Gay Community with Launching Her Music Career

Selena Gomez Tells Senate to Pass Equality Act, Credits Gay Community with Launching Her Music Career

After the Equality Act was recently passed in the House, Selena Gomez is now telling the Senate to pass the bill that would give added federal protections to the LGBTQ+ community. The Mexican-American pop star also talked about her history with the gay community and how they helped support her music career.

The Equality Act would extend protections from the Civil Rights Act to the LGBTQ+ community.

The Equality Act was first introduced in 2015. The bill would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to extend protections against discrimination on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity when it came to employment, housing, education, and other public and federal accommodations. In 2019, the Senate under President Donald Trump refused to vote on the bill.

The Equality Act recently passed through the House and now Gomez wants the Senate to pass it as well.

In February, the Equality Act was reintroduced to the House of Representatives. The bill passed through the House for a second time on Feb. 25. In a recent interview with the Recording Academy, the institution that hosts the Grammy Awards, Gomez is telling the Senate to vote on the bill this time and pass it through.

“We’ve come a long way in the last 10 years, but we have so much further to go,” Gomez said about the progress of LGBTQ+ rights in the country. “The Senate must pass the Equality Act. It’s absurd that this is even being debated in 2021.”

Gomez says the gay community helped support her 2009 breakthrough hit “Naturally.”

While Gomez was promoting her Latin music EP Revelación, she also revisited a few of her past hits. In 2009, she launched her music career with her band The Scene. Later that year, Gomez got her first top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with her breakthrough smash “Naturally.” While talking about her relationship with the gay community, she says they were the first ones to show that song love.

“Earlier you mentioned my song ‘Naturally’ and I remember when it was released, it truly started getting played in the gay bars before anywhere else,” she said. “I would hear from older friends that they heard when they went out. I was so jealous that I was too young to be out and dancing to it with everyone. The LGBTQ+ community has been there for me and I don’t take them for granted.”

The Equality Act is waiting to be debated by the Senate. This is Gomez’s first time speaking in support of the bill. Last year, she launched the Black Equality Fund to support groups like the Movement for Black Lives.  In March, she also asked for the Senate to pass the People Act.

Selena Gomez and Myke Towers’ “Dámelo To'” is Everything: Listen to the ‘Revelación’ Standout

Selena Gomez’s Revelación EP is finally here! That also means her collaboration with Puerto Rican superstar Myke Towers is out. Their Spanish song “Dámelo To'” was so worth the wait.

Gomez said this EP was a Latin “labor of love.”

“This new music is a labor of love for all my Latin fans,” Gomez said in a statement. “Whether you speak Spanish or not, I hope you can feel the emotion and passion. For me, that is the beauty of Latin music.”

Towers is one of three featured artists on Gomez’s Revelación EP. The Mexican-American pop star previously dropped music videos for “Baila Conmigo” featuring Boricua singer Rauw Alejandro and “Selfish Love” with French producer DJ Snake. Her fans had to wait for the whole EP to get the Towers collaboration.

Gomez and Towers are a dream team.

Gomez wrote “Dámelo To'” with Towers, Puerto Rican hit-maker Tainy, and his production team NEON16. Reggaeton beats wrapped around a hypnotic flute soundtrack Gomez’s demands for more. Apparently, Towers is not giving her what she wants, so he steps up to the plate with a slick guest verse. “I’ll give mom grandkids,” he promises in Spanish. This Gomez-Towers dream team gives us everything we needed.

“To be reunited with Selena on this project was amazing,” Tainy added. “We wanted to merge work I’ve been doing with the pop arena Selena has always mastered. To create something that was authentic to who she is. I’m a huge fan of her work and to have this responsibility has been an incredible honor.”

The Revelación EP features 7 all-Spanish songs done by Gomez. This isn’t her first time singing in Spanish, but it’s her first major Latin music project.
