The older I’ve gotten, the more I’ve learned that I have to open myself up to all opportunities. Maybe I’ll get burned and not meet the right people, but I won’t know until I do it.
“I know my voice is very prominent, but I’m not careless with it. I’m selective. As far as my personal life, someone sees me having a glass of wine? I could give two shits. I’m not trying to hide. That’s my life. I’m living it the way I want to live it. But it’s about making a conscious effort—if I can have a moment to be with my friends, I’ll take that time. So I don’t have any of it. I had to make that decision.” – Selena Gomez
Autumn/Winter 2018 Collection
“I’m so proud of the collection,” the star said in a release. “What I love most about working with the Coach team is that they just know how I dress. Everything felt authentic from the beginning.”
– Selena Gomez.
I think the beginning of my career, it was very tailored, it was very precise. Sharing the vulnerable, raw, messy side wasn’t necessarily encouraged. I think the definition of strength is being vulnerable and being honest. That doesn’t mean you have to be like, ‘I’m strong I’m amazing, look at me’, you can have those moments but you won’t have those moments unless you’re like ‘I’ve been broken, I’ve felt things and messed up a lot and I’m okay saying that’.
“Meaning through all your imperfections, you’re flawless. You’re not striving. It’s me encouraging a younger version of myself. Even when you’re imperfect, even when you’re feeling worthless, you are flawless. It’s a song I’m going to sing for the rest of my life.”
The first time I recorded an album I was 15, so how am I really gonna talk about heartbreak and devastation and loss then? I’m just gonna talk about dancing and jumping around. I’d come in and I’d want things that were uplifting and positive, and then once I started living life, I guess I realized I’m definitely not jumping around all the time and I’m definitely not super stoked every damn day.
Alright. Speaking from my heart for over an hour to someone who puts those thoughts into paid words can be hard for me. The older I get the more I want my voice to be mine. This is all apart of my work within an industry that’s been around longer than all of us have been. The purpose of my interview was three fold. My work with A21, my new collection with Coach, and some new music. As I’m aware there will always be interests in one’s personal life because that’s the pace of our ‘social’ generation. I’m grateful for my position and I will always find ways to make my job more about others and giving back— all while having the best time with my music, fashion, film and my love for learning about the world that I’m eager to tap into more and more.
Church is a name for something far more personal. There’s always agenda seeking information on such a subject and I understand why. Rarely do I mention church (and I didn’t) but I’ll always feel comfortable talking about my values and beliefs. I respect that from everyone and anyone.
I understand that reporters are working to grab the attention of a reader, however I will always work to ensure that what is public represents my truth.
I’m a bit bummed but rarely surprised.
Y’all know me and my heart. I can’t help it. So I’ll post some of MY photos from the collection and work with A21. My heart. And maybe edit my actual lyrics as you will all hear it soon 😊
I love you guys to the moon and back. For more information on the work I do with A21 please, please visit link in my bio. So much more on that soon!
I love how Pilates makes me feel, like it opens me up. I have the hardest time breathing, weirdly enough. Even when I have conversations, I need to work on my breathing, so it’s something I enjoy because it’s peaceful and it helps me relax.
She’s always met me where I’ve been, she’s encouraged me when I’ve had nothing to be encouraged about. The reason why she has been one of my best friends is because this person has never, ever judged a single decision I’ve made. – Selena Gomez
