Selena Gomez Opens Up About Authenticity On Coach’s ‘Dream It Real’ Podcast | Music News


Selena Gomez released her first interview of the year with Coach‘s brand new platform, the Dream It Real podcast. The singer and actress spoke about authenticity on the show and truly opened up about many important themes that affected her life in the past and that sometimes still do in the present.


She’s no stranger to opening up about her struggles with anxiety and depression. The 26-year-old star’s latest interview touched upon the often-stigmatised concept of therapy, and how important it is to her. 


“I am a believer of therapy….I wish I could have done a lot of things and experienced things maybe a little differently [when I was younger]. But I go to therapy.” She laughed. She also explained that therapy it’s hard, but it’s amazing. “I think that it’s just one of the most important things to get to know yourself.” she added.


Selena also shared why Instagram can be so “unhealthy” for her and everyone, explaining how looking at these people who look beautiful and amazing, just got her down a lot. Breaks are really important, she affirmed, adding how on Instagram most of it isn’t real. “I want to protect the youngest generation because they are exposed to so much information, and I feel like that causes a lot of anxiety at the youngest age.” She also said.


She opened up on how her friends have literally saved her life, underlining the importance of the friendship, how lucky she is for having found three true friends that saved her in several situations. 


“I think it’s so important to have healthy friendships. I really do. I mean my friends, without a doubt, have saved my life in multiple situations. I mean that. Because they’re honest, they’re loving, they unconditionally love, they never judge, and they give me sound advice.”


And last but not least, she spoke about her new album, that is coming out this year. There will be no collaborations on it, Gomez said. “Working on this new record, I just wanted it to be me, all me. Every song is a story I’ve experienced. To that point, I think there’s no one who’s going to tell my story better than myself. I just really wanted to kind of just live with my story a bit and create it into something that means a lot to me.”
