Selena Gomez posted an old interview that reads off lyrics to a song, saying “I got every material thing I could ever need/ I got the love from my fans that adore me … But my love for myself is lacking a little bit.”
The Instagram post from Tuesday is an interview with Mary J. Blige about her 2007 album “Growing Pains” — and maybe Gomez is feeling a little of the same.
“I’m not saying I haven’t made progress, but I have got a lot of work to do,” it continues. “And stay in a positive state of mind.”
This comes after Gomez unfollowed everyone, including BFF Taylor Swift, on Instagram. She is now following 0 people with more than 8 million followers.
Gomez has been sharing her insecurities as of late. She shared a personal story with fans last month during We Day California.
“I’m surrounded by people who are supposed to guide me and some of them have and others haven’t,” she said. “They pressure me, there’s so much pressure. ‘You gotta be sexy, you gotta be cute, you gotta be nice, you gotta be all these things.’”
She continued, breaking down a bit, saying, “They tell me what to wear, how to look, what I should say, how I should be. Until recently I had given into that pressure, I lost sight of who I was. I listened to opinions of people and I tried to change who I am because I thought others would accept me for it. And I realized I don’t know how to be anything but myself.”
