Two years ago, the world watched as Selena Gomez, now 23, went to rehab. I can only only imagine what it might be like to have so many eyes on you at such a difficult time.
In a new interview with Vanity Fair, Selena opened up about using public platforms as a public figure.
The interviewer, Derek Blasberg, asked her about her social media strategies, and Selena replied she had none.
Blasberg then joked he would try not to get her in trouble at the party they were heading to. Selena laughed, saying,
She also spoke about how her own struggle inspired her recent songs -- as a way to talk to people about what she went through.
When speaking of the songs on her new album, Revival, Selena said,
I'll be honest, I haven't yet listened to Revival with much scrutiny, but this gives the album a whole new weight.
Kudos to Selena for turning her struggle into art that can resonate with people maybe going through similar things.
