Selena Gomez Went Through A 'Bit of Depression' When The Pandemic Started

Selena Gomez got candid about how her mental health was affected at the start of the pandemic earlier this year.

In her conversation with Dr. Vivek Murthy, the former Surgeon General, on Instagram Live, the 28-year-old singer and entrepreneur revealed that she went through a bit of depression as the pandemic overtook the United States.

“In the beginning, I couldn’t deal with it that well. I kind of went into a bit of a depression,” she explained.

Selena continued, “My job is a lot of travel, connecting with people, making people happy, and that makes me happy, so it has been a struggle.”

Now, Selena explained, she is feeling better.

“Slowly, towards the end, I found thing things I’m doing are coming out, and that was extremely exciting for me. I’ve worked on personal things like a beauty line that has a goal of reaching $100 million in 10 years for mental health,” she shared.

“And recently, I’ve been able to go to the studio,” Selena adds. “So I would say right now, I’m fully coming out again and I just think I had to handle it the way I needed to handle it, and got through it with the right people and doing the right things and doing the right steps to not make me go crazy.”

Selena also opened up recently about what she learned about herself during quarantine. See what she shared here…
