Watch Selena Gomez Talk About Sleeping On An Air Mattress Before Becoming Selena Gomez

For their “City Of Angels” music video/short film, 30 Seconds To Mars sat down with celebrities and street performers to talk about why they love Los Angeles. Selena Gomez, who had been living in L.A. since she was a child, talked about her less glamorous lifestyle in L.A. before the crazy fame. Who knew she was living in a house full of women sleeping on air mattresses. Celebs are just like us, right?

When she was little, Selena Gomez and her mother moved to L.A. and rented a small loft in downtown.

She was not alone in that loft, either.

Gomez lived in cramp quarters in her tiny loft and slept on an air mattress, all in the name of chasing her acting dream.

She continued saying how much he actually really enjoyed that time in her life as a small smile flashes across her face, but as her fame grew bigger, she struggled to deal with the constant attention.

“You get your first paparazzi, and then you get, you know, your first fan letter and it’s all super exciting and you like that,” Gomez says in the video. “I loved that.”

“Then it just kind of got very weird very fast because then it became very quickly about where I was going to eat and who I was meeting up with.”

Her advice? Chase your dreams because they are important and real.

Selena Gomez Offered A Special Commencement Speech To Immigrads Celebrating Their Special Achievement

It is graduation season and Covid-19 has changed how we conduct graduation ceremonies. This year, few high school seniors will be able to walk across the stage as states and counties protect their health and offer graduation alternatives. Celebrities have stepped up to give these seniors special commencement speeches.

Selena Gomez wanted to give immigrads a special commencement speech honoring their experience.

“Congratulations to all of the Immigrads,” Gomez says int he video. “I know that this is a virtual ceremony, but it is very real and it is very real to all of the families, and all of you, and your communities. I want you guys to know that you matter and that your experiences are a huge part of the American story.”

Gomez used her speech to connect with the immigrant graduates by relating to their stories.

“When my family came here from Mexico, they set into motion my American story, as well as theirs,” Gomez says. “I’m a proud third-generation American-Mexican, and my family’s journey and their sacrifices helped me get me to where I am today. Mine is not a unique story. Each and every one of you have a similar tale of becoming an American.”

Gomez gave her address for Define American, an immigrant-led organization.

Define American “is a narrative and culture change organization that uses media and the power of storytelling to transcend politics and shift the conversation about immigrants, identity, and citizenship in a changing America,” reads the website.

Gomez fans are here to support the singer and her speech.

Gomez has used her platform to confront major topics in American politics and society. She produced “13 Reasons Why” to enter the conversation about teenage suicide and has used her social media platform to celebrate undocumented immigrants chasing the American Dream.

Gomez ended her speech giving all of the immigrads some words of encouragement.

“So, regardless of where your family is from, regardless of your immigration status, you have taken action to earn an education, to make your families proud, and to open up your worlds,” Gomez says. “So, I’m sending all of my love to you guys today, and congratulations, and I hope that you guys are set off to be everything that you want to be.”

How Selena Gomez’s Decision To Let Her Natural Curls Loose During Quarantine Is The Ultimate Form Of Self-Care

How Selena Gomez’s Decision To Let Her Natural Curls Loose During Quarantine Is The Ultimate Form Of Self-Care

Even while in quarantine, singer, actress, and soon-to-be makeup mogul Selena Gomez is managing to promote her new cosmetics brand, Rare Beauty. Before quarantine, Gomez would have followed the go-to-recipe for media promotion of her beauty products while in public: flaunting them on red carpets and rocking them on the street for paparazzi to capture and post on celebrity blogs.

Today, the producer/ businesswoman is promoting her new brand by proving the comfort it brings to her in her own home. Which makes for some pretty smart marketing if you ask me.

In a recent post to her Instagram page, Gomez shared a series of selfies wearing her natural curls and makeup from Rare Beauty.

“I had an urge to put my make up on,” Gomez wrote in the post’s caption. “My papa noticed then proceeded to ask “why do you look like that?” He whistled as he walked away. So there’s that. Wearing all @rarebeauty.”

In the picture, Gomez appears to be wearing a creamy nude lip product, winged liner, foundation, and concealer (which we know are meant to come in quite a few shades).

Gomez’s beauty launch might be impacted by the current pandemic but the singer is clearly unruffled.

The global pandemic has led many brands to put a pause on production to comply with necessary health measures.

Still, much to our delight, Rare Beauty seems to be trucking along with their plans for a summer on rarebeauty.com and Sephora. This gesture is something that we are particularly grateful for considering the fact that makeup has proven time and again to give us a sense of empowerment and confidence that we can all need in this time filled with so much doubt. From the looks of it, Gomez is using her own Rare Beauty products to help with her own self-care and we really can’t wait to do the same!
