Selena Gomez's health has been the top concern for many of her fans – ever since the singer revealed her lupus diagnosis and took some time off to rest and recover. What's not going to be one of her focuses? Her weight or appearance. While visiting radio stations in New York City to promote her new song, "Bad Liar," Sel shared that she's getting to a place in her life where she's shrugging off any criticisms people could ever have with her body.
Which is amazing – since she looks great and it's none of anyone else's business!
"I'm hoping that's changing, if anybody told me to go on a diet, I don’t think they'd be working with me anymore. That’s not how it's going to work," Selena told Elvis Duran and the Morning Show. "I think it’s very overwhelming. I have a lot of amazing people around me, Carl [Lentz] included, that kind of encourage me to know what’s really good for the choices I make for myself. Because it's hard, it's really hard when everyone around you is saying 'you should do this,' it should look like, people are going to relate more to this, and deep down in my gut I’m like,' I don’t know if this is what I want, this isn’t where I want to be. I want to do this, I want it to feel like this, very genuine and honest and raw and real' and I kind of have to go with my gut, so it’s hard."
Not only is the star cutting negativity right on out of her life, Selena also shared that she's purposely working on her health and overall personal well-being out of the spotlight.
"I haven’t really been all over the place lately and that’s kind of intentional," she shared.
I think it’s important to balance out where I am and I've been doing this for a really long time and my sanity has meant everything to me, and a lot of that is my faith. I took 90 days off, I went away, I was very vocal about it because to me, where I get my confidence is my vulnerability. I can’t sit there and pretend that everything is good because I’ve done that for years, and it doesn’t really work for me."
As always, we are so inspired by the star's words.
