Selena Gomez is a hot ass mess in the worst way. She has an alcohol problem, a Justin Bieber problem and apparently she’s delusional about both. You see, for years people were pressuring her to be sexier, to look and act a certain way, but you know what? She’s not going to take it! She’s fighting back! By… posting “sexy”, half-naked pics of herself online to show those busybodies who’s boss?
She took part in the We Day conference in Oakland, California this week, where she gave a little speech to a crowd of screaming fans, and what she had to say was… inspirational, sure. If she actually lived what she preached!
“I’m surrounded by people who are supposed to guide me, and some of them have and others haven’t. They pressure me … you gotta be sexy, you gotta be cute, you gotta be nice. You gotta be all these things.”
“You all have pressure that you have to deal with every day I’m sure with school, with work, with friends, with parents, with family. … They tell me what to wear, how to look, what I should say, how I should be,” she continued, getting emotional.
“Until recently, I had given into that pressure. I lost sight of who I was. I listened to opinions of people and I tried to change who I am because I thought that others would accept me for it.”
Now that she’s learned she doesn’t “know how to be anything but myself,” Gomez is hoping her fans follow the same route.
“I know what it’s like figuring out what types of friends you have,” she said. “I’d be lying if I said I’ve never tried to make myself better by giving in because I have, but I’ve learned from my actions and for all of the things I’ve done, I’m proudest of that. I’ve learned from my mistakes.”
I mean, look – she’s 21, so of course she’s going to be an idiot in a lot of ways. We’ve all been there, done that, got the t-shirt. But this is why the trappings of celebrity are even worse, because kids are looking up to another kid, essentially, who has no more answers about life and the right way to live it than they do.
But sorry, Selena girl, I don’t think you’ve escaped that pressure. In fact, it looks like the exact opposite, if you ask me. I mean…
