Selena Gomez Thanks Fans For Helping Her Cope With Media Pressure
Former Disney star Selena Gomez has opened up about the pressures of living in the media spotlight in a new interview with The Insider, where she goes on to thank her fans for their continuous support.
Not only is Selena a star in her own right, rising to fame on the Disney channel TV show Wizards of Waverley Place, before making her way into movies as well as launching a successful music career, she is also the long-term girlfriend of teen pop superstar Justin Bieber.
Unsurprisingly there is a huge amount of media attention aimed towards Selena, from her high-profile relationship, to her blossoming career; every one wants to know what she is up.
Speaking of living in such an intense spotlight, Selena admitted to The Insider that stardom can be a lot tougher than most people realise, she said:
“I just don’t think that people realize how hard it is. I mean you’re always doing something wrong. I have a great family, I have a wonderful mom, I have great friends that keep me grounded that I’ve had for years, and I think that’s where it starts- a support system. But it so easy to get caught up in this… if I read everything online about myself it would put me in a state of depression.”
Selena went on to reveal the true reason she keeps going, is down to her dedicated fans, stating: “I do everything for my fans. I do my clothing line, my fragrance, my TV show, my music- everything is based on them, what they’re going to live, and their opinion means everything to me.”
Whilst Selena is known for her squeaky clean image, she is working hard to make the transition from teen star to an adult, currently concentrating all her efforts on her acting career, whilst making steps towards more edgy and challenging roles.
Selena admits that whilst she will be scrutinized for the change in direction, she feels it will be work she can always be proud of, and knows that her loyal fans will always support her, when others may not, as long as she continues to give back to them.
