Selena Gomez might have started as a Disney starlet, but she’s evolved into an inspiring woman, with producer and philanthropist efforts to boot. Here are some other amazing aspects of the singer that you may not have known before.
1. She doesn’t fuel wars or beefs with fellow celebrities – instead, she celebrates the friendships and healthy bonds she has with friends like Taylor Swift, and Jen Aniston, empowering females and their bonds which is important for young girls to see.
2. Her fashion game is on point and she’s close with Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld, acting as the face of the Louis Vuitton and Coach campaigns. But somehow, she’s not one of those cliquey fashion girls. Instead, she stays relatable.
3. She’s open with her struggles and imperfections, raising awareness but also taking a break from the limelight to focus on her health. She openly discussed her struggles with autoimmune disease lupus, anxiety and depression. She famously cancelled her European and South American Revival Tour schedules to focus on her recovery instead.
4. On a related note, a big move she made for mental health during that limelight break was disappearing from IG for a few months. Some stars are simply obsessed with social media and ego, but Selena realized she needed to take a break and focus on herself. We celebrate her dedication to self-care and the message it sends to young girls.
