Selena Gomez poses in a revealing photo for her new photo feature in GQ magazine’s May 2016 issue, on newsstands nationwide April 26.
The 23-year-old actress and singer discussed her time in rehab, her life in the public eye, and more with the mag. Here’s what she shared…
On her time in rehab for Lupus: âNo, no, no, no, no. First off, this is something that everyone always wants to fixate on. I got diagnosed with lupus. My mom had a very public miscarriage. So I had to cancel my tour. I needed time to just be okay. And I was going through leukemiaâââ GQ notes that Selena most likely means chemotherapy here âand I went to two different locations for those treatments. Itâs really frustrating, because Iâm 100 percent allowed to have that, but I think people just want to have some sort ofââ I understand what youâre asking but Iâm just saying, I donât think it really matters. My past seems to be way more fascinating for people than my future, which bums me outâŚ I donât ever really like to sit and dwell on what that experience was. Was it fun? No. Is it fun to have it? No.â
On child stars being easy targets: âWeâre easy targets. Every single kid who was brought up like this is an easy target. Itâs disgusting, because itâs interesting to grown adults that these kids go through weird things because theyâre figuring out, âDo I like this? Do I love this? Maybe I love this person. Oh, Iâm exposed to this, people are reporting my every move and this and that because of Instagram and Twitter and you can find out everything.â Thereâs a difference between being a fanââthereâs a difference between that and what you have to doâŚ Because itâs, I donât know, fun, maybe? Itâs like watching a car crash as youâre driving past it. You want to watch it.â
On what is holding her back from roles she wants: âIâm young, and I look younger. So the roles that I want to go for, itâs all about how the face is. I can play like Iâm 16 still. Doesnât really work for the things I want to doâŚ I want to have an experience that I would go a little bit stir-crazy with. I like people pushing a little bit.â
