Selena Gomez was due to head over to Asia Australia for some concerts in early 2014 following the release of her latest album, Stars Dance, but that won’t be happening now. No, Selena’s not ill, there weren’t scheduling conflicts or anything like that. Instead, she just needs to… spend some time on her own and “become a better person”, apparently. Whut?
Here’s her statement (via Billboard):
“My fans are so important to me and I would never want to disappoint them,” comments Gomez in a statement issued by promoter Live Nation. “But it has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years of putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be. To my fans, I sincerely apologize and I hope you guys know how much each and every one of you mean to me.”
I mean, by all means, obviously. Touring is exhausting and spending time working on yourself is never a bad thing. It just seems slightly bizarre and really random. It’s not like she’s seemed on the verge of a breakdown like her former boyfriend has for the past year, but maybe she’s taking this break to make sure it doesn’t get that bad. Either way, way to make the smart choice and put your mental state first, girl. After she cursed her way offstage earlier this month, I’m with it.
What do you guys think is really going on here?
