Selena Gomez is trying her Little Miss Relatable act again. The singer may have just made her red carpet debut with her Grammy-winning boyfriend, but that doesn’t mean she’s married to this whole fame and fortune thing. In a new post from Humans of New York, Selena revealed that she wouldn’t have a problem if her career died.
“I feel like I’m just starting, but I think I’d be fine if it all went away,” Selena said, echoing other sentiments she’s expressed about her life. Selena has long struggled to come to terms with her celebrity. Apparently, her willingness to give it all up is hereditary.
“I get that from my mother,” Selena said of her apathy. “From the moment I started singing, she always reminded me that all of this was a privilege, and could be taken at any moment. So singing is not how I define myself. I try to keep my identity rooted in my friendships and my faith.”
It’s a brave stance for the world’s most-followed Instagram user to take. Hopefully, she doesn’t back down on it.
