Selena Gomez is perfectly fine with you forgetting all about her.
Gomez is on the cover of the April issue of Vogue and revealing even more of her true feelings about her place in show business. The singer/actress has been decidedly more candid since her stint in rehab last year and is now making some bold statements about being in the public eye.
"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," Gomez reveals in the Vogue interview.
Gomez is one of the most followed Instagram users in the world with over 113 million followers, but she often feels overwhelmed by the social media site.
"It had become so consuming to me. It's what I woke up to and went to sleep to. I was an addict, and it felt like I was seeing things I didn't want to see, like it was putting things in my head that I didn't want to care about," she admitted. "I always end up feeling like s--- when I look at Instagram. Which is why I'm kind of under the radar, ghosting it a bit."
Gomez spent 90 days in rehab as she dealt with lupus and her own mental health. She ultimately resurfaced at the American Music Awards in November and gave an impassioned speech about staying out of the limelight because she felt "broken," even when she had it all.
The "Kill 'Em with Kindness" singer told Vogue about her rehab experience being a transformative one.
"You have no idea how incredible it felt to just be with six girls," Gomez said. "Real people who couldn't give two s---s 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."
She now speaks with a therapist five days per week, and is hoping that the stigma about treating mental health would start to ease up.
"I wish more people would talk about therapy," she said. "We girls, we're taught to be almost too resilient, to be strong and sexy and cool and laid-back, the girl who's down. We also need to feel allowed to fall apart."
Gomez is the executive producer on the upcoming Netflix series 13 Reasons Why, adapted from the young adult novel of the same name.
