Posted on March 16, 2017
Selena Gomez graces the April 2017 issue of Vogue magazine. Selena wears a bralette and skirt from the Michael Kors collection on the cover. She also wears hoop earrings by Jennifer Fisher. This is her Vogue cover debut.Selena also models bikinis and other fashions by Tory Burch, Coach, Hilfiger, Dolce & Gabbana, Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton in the cover shoot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. The Vogue interview discusses Selena's fame and focus on mental health. She has a staggering 113 million followers on Instagram known as Selenators.
Selena opened up about her emotions on tour. She says, "Tours are a really lonely place for me. My self-esteem was shot. I was depressed, anxious. I started to have panic attacks right before getting onstage, or right after leaving the stage. Basically I felt I wasn't good enough, wasn't capable. I felt I wasn't giving my fans anything, and they could see it-which, I think, was a complete distortion. I was so used to performing for kids." She explains that performing for adults is more difficult because she felt she had no wisdom to share with her audience.
She also discussed her struggle to distance herself from her Disney character in Wizards of Waverly Place. Selena says, "For a guy there's a way to rebel that can work for you. But for a woman, that can backfire. It's hard not to be a cliché, the child star gone wrong. I did respect my fans and what I had, but I was also figuring out what I was passionate about and how far I was willing to go."
Selena has always been busy in both films and music but she currently has no films in the works. For once this isn't causing her stress. She told Vogue, "For a change, It feels like I don't have to be holding my breath and waiting for somebody to judge a piece of work that I'm doing. I'm not eager to chase a moment. I don't think there's a moment for me to chase." She also explained that a therapy called Dialectical Behavior Therapy has completely changed her life.
