Selena Gomez: 'I need to rethink my life'

24 July 2016 / 3 months 3 days ago

Selena Gomez has taken to Instagram to share an emotional message in which she said she needs to "rethink some areas of my life creatively and personally".

The 24-year-old singer took to Instagram after her gig in Jakarta, Indonesia on Friday (22.07.16), which was also her birthday, to explain that she is planning some major changes. 

She included a screenshot of a message from her iPhone notes app, which read: "Tonight I felt extremely unauthentic, unconnected to both my myself and my music. I've never really felt like my materials, wardrobe or a video could define me. I act on a moment and fear something that hasn't happened. I'm stagnant, I stay still and don't just sit with myself first and ask, 'Is this where I am, whole heartedly?' I've always told the truth. I'm always true to my word, I've shown who I am but I need to rethink some areas of my life creatively and personally. Had to get that out."

Selena captioned the screenshot: "Not being negative about anything I've done. I'm grateful for every single moment I get here - Indonesia you were LOUD and clearly inspiring. Love you so much."

And earlier on stage, Selena got emotional before performing 'Kill 'Em With Kindness'. 

She said: "The next song, before I go home, is a song that's so important to me. Because I get really frustrated, I get stupid sometimes, I say things that I don't mean. Or that come out wrong just because I care so badly.

"But the thing is, at the end of the day, no war in anger was ever won. I do know that deep down in my heart that I have to believe that we can love each other and always be kind no matter what it takes in us. I believe that we can do that, no matter what."
