Selena Gomez was born on July 22, 1992. Selena Gomez is an American actress and singer. Selena Gomez was born in the Texas Grand Prix. Selena Gomez's mother, Amanda Down Mandy Tiffany (who also has an acting background) gave birth her at the age of 16.
While Selena Gomez might be one of the most-followed people on Instagram, at this point we all know (and love) that she’s a step back from sharing too much online for the sake of her mental health. In fact, she’s personally been off social media for a few years. This means that updates about the star often come from other accounts.
Selena Gomez has been on the planet for a very long time. She is a worldwide pop star with three number-one albums, the fifth-most-followed person on Instagram, an actor since the age of 7, an exec director of documentaries and t.v, a tabloid fixation, a philanthropist, a mental health advocate, and, most recently, the founder of an inclusive beauty line, all at the age of 27. She’s also a lupus survivor, having been diagnosed with the inflammatory condition in 2013 and requiring a kidney transplant in 2017. There were doubts about whether a girl from Grand Prairie, Texas, could handle it. It turns out the answer is a resounding yes.
Gomez returned to the public eye last year with “Lose You to Love Me,” a self-empowerment hymn that alchemized personal anguish into public catharsis, following a known struggle with anxiety and depression and the therapy that followed. The song was the lead single from Rare, an intimate dance-floor confessional that converts vulnerability into strength and failure into success. It was her first Billboard chart-topper. Gomez assures her pal, comedian Amy Schumer, that she will be OK.
SCHUMER: Pay attention to your body’s signals. I listen to mine, and it advises me every day not to do Zumba. Because you have such a magnifying glass on you, I want to be really cautious in this interview. It’s impossible to cough without becoming hot news.
SELENA GOMEZ: The unfortunate thing is, I can’t recall a period when that wasn’t the case. What’s kept me afloat is the knowledge that it’ll be someone else eventually—and I don’t mean that negatively. It’s been horrible for my work at times, but at others, it’s like, “Now I can talk about things like my depression and anxiety, things that I’ve fought with and am completely honest about because I believe in seeking assistance.” But, aside from that, what keeps me grounded is that I try to stay away from it. It’s not like I don’t have a life of my own.
SCHUMER: On Instagram, I believe I have almost 10 million followers. What I go through, you go through 10 or twenty times as much. What drove you to open up about your personal life in front of such a large audience?
SELENA GOMEZ: It was never my desire to work for a tabloid. So when things went that way, everything spiraled out of control. Then I thought to myself, “Wait, none of this is real.” The way the media has tried to describe things has sometimes made it sound incredibly horrible, but there’s nothing wrong with me needing to go away or falling in love. People were stealing my story and it was killing me, so I had to start opening up. I’m still young, and my life will continue to change, and no one has the authority to tell me how to live my life.”
Selena Gomez Shows A Good Heart With Mental Health Announcement
Selena Gomez is making it about others and showing a good heart as she announces she's launching a mental health platform. The "Rare" singer and beauty founder, herself a sufferer of mental health issues and diagnosed bipolar, is fresh from the news that Wondermind - the name of the platform - will be offering support, and it's all launching this week.
The Only Murders in the Buiding star has partnered with Daniella Pierson for Wondermind, with a social media message explaining more.
Joined by mom Mandy Teefey in the launch, Selena is bringing a community-based platform offering both mental health content and support for sufferers.
"We’ve each had our own mental health struggles, and we realized there was no inclusive, fun, and easy place where people could come together to explore, discuss, and navigate their feelings. So we created it. Welcome to Wondermind," a statement reads. The platform touts the benefits of therapy, but likewise the possibility to hit up Wonderland more casually - like going to the gym.
