Selena Gomez Admits She Felt Pressure to Be Overtly Sexual Earlier in Her Career

Selena Gomez is on the cover of Allure‘s “Best of Beauty” October 2020 issue, out now.

Here’s what the 28-year-old singer and actress had to say…

On feeling an expectation, earlier in her career, to be overtly sexual in her music videos: “I just did things that weren’t really me. There was pressure to seem more adult on my album, Revival. [I felt] the need to show skin…I really don’t think I was [that] person.

On limiting her media intake and why she doesn’t google herself: “I haven’t done that in years. I honestly can’t. I’m strong in a lot of ways, but I think I just have way too much of a sensitive heart.”

On being an entrepreneur and whether she considers herself anyone’s boss: “I would definitely like to say I’m an entrepreneur…. It’s more that I am in control. I am in full control of my life and everything that I do, what is out there, everything. So I would like to say, yes. I’m in charge of everything in my life.”

Selena recently got candid about her mental health diagnosis.
