From the past two years, Selena Gomez has been vocal about dealing with her mental health issues. She has spoken about being diagnosed with bipolar disorder, how she overcame from her breakup with Justin Bieber and The Weeknd. Selena also launched her makeup line named Rare Beauty and her upcoming music album is also titled Rare. Now, during an interaction with Newsette, Selena sat down with her mother Mandy Teefey and they spoke about the singer’s mental health.
When asked if the launch of Rare album will be ‘easier than those that came before it because of [her] new focus on mental health and being happier’, Selena stated, “None of what I’m doing now would have stemmed from the mindset I had before. My best stuff is happening now. And then the greatest thing ever in my music was ‘Lose You to Love Me‘ [Gomez’s breakup song believed to be about Bieber]… I remember I had a moment where I couldn’t believe it, because the first and second day, the reactions were crazy, and I remember I smiled and I was like, ‘That’s why it’s worth it.”
She further shared, “All of these years of confusion and being in love, and all of this stuff… and it was finally a clean slate.’ And it wasn’t even because everyone liked it; it was just a realization of why I went through everything I went through…”
Talking about how having a therapist isn’t a taboo, Selena said, “Because I was raised by a mom who wasn’t afraid to talk about things, it didn’t seem like a taboo thing for me. It was like, ‘Oh, ok, I definitely know it’s possible to have a mental illness,’ so I was much younger when I started therapy… and it was great, but I was still figuring it out. I think it takes a special person for you to match up with, but as my mom said, we do have all of these other free resources because many people can’t afford traditional therapy. That’s why I’ve always had dreams of having centres like Planned Parenthood but just dedicated to mental health. I believe mental health care should be accessible to everyone.”
