Selena Gomez decided to talk about the time she spent in rehab. The famous singer seems to be in a good place now, Selena actually being very focused on her health and wellbeing. The young singer revealed that spending time in rehab has not been simple, and she was actually scared.
Selena underwent rehab treatment last year. She actually took a three months break from her career to focus on her health. Selena talked about this experience during a new interview with InStyle. Selena said that she took the time off to deal with the side effects of lupus, including anxiety or depression.
“It’s so weird, how one year can change everything,” Selena started saying. “Last year I canceled my tour and went away for 90 days, and it was the best thing that I ever could’ve done. I had no phone, nothing, and I was scared. But it was amazing, and I learned a lot,” she went on to add.
The star claimed that she really felt that she was able to move on. “Everything I cared about, I stopped caring about. I came out, and it felt like, ‘OK, I can only go forward.’ And there are still days. I go to therapy. I believe in that and talking about where you are. But I’m in a really, really healthy place.”
Selena also talked about her first public appearance following her time out. “When I came out, I was asked to go to the American Music Awards, and everyone around me was like, ‘Do whatever makes you comfortable.’ I didn’t want my fans to have a negative view of taking care of yourself, so I just went in head-on, and I’ll tell you, the first time stepping on that carpet was so overwhelming. I felt like my back was sweating,” she revealed.
Selena also said that she started to be less influenced by the bad comments and criticism. “Of course I care, but I care less and less, and that’s so freeing,” she said. And Selena has a lot to be happy for. She also talked about her famous boyfriend, musician The Weeknd. “I’m lucky because he’s more of a best friend than anything else,” the famous singer said when referring to her boyfriend.
