Selena Gomez Gets Candid About Dating Celebs In The Spotlight In Her New Album ‘Rare’
Selena Gomez IS BACK IN FULL SWING.
She’s just dropped her third studio album Rare, and it’s garnering some well-deserved attention.
As Variety puts it, “Five years ago, saying that Selena Gomez had released one of the best pop albums in recent memory probably would have invited scepticism at the very least. In 2020, believe it.”
It’s been five years since Revival, and a lot has happened in her world over that time: rekindling with Justin Bieber, dating The Weeknd, advocating mental health, executive producing 13 Reasons Why, and undergoing a kidney transplant as a result of her lupus.
Giving her first in-depth interview on the body of work, she told Beats Radio 1’s Zane Lowe about dating celebrities in the spotlight.
"Well, if I could be honest, it is so cliché," she began. "It’s just everyone dates everyone [in Hollywood]. It always seems to be within a little bubble and it’s because it’s safe, right? You’re wanting someone to understand what you’re going through, you’re almost wanting a counterpart of creativity as well and it’s, you know, interesting and fun, but the problem with that is that you end up—whether you admit it or not—you’re having a relationship for people and not even for yourself. There’s almost this point where it’s like, 'Oh we’re making it known that we’re together.' Or whatever it is. It’s just like you need to decide within our world if it’s for you, or is it for show?" she revealed.
If we’re honest, that sounds like such an internal struggle that would be very difficult to decipher.
Although it was a long wait for this collection of tunes, it was well worth it. Her dark pop seems to have worked through the nasty to produce respectful nods to her past experiences – no explicit character bashing here!
Happy listening, Selenators. She’s a good one.
