When she was just a teenager — seventeen to be exact — Gomez took the title of the youngest UNICEF ambassador in its history! And before you correct us — we know that Millie Bobby Brown later went on to snatch the title!
Anywho, Gomez is passionate about changing lives and is a supporter of providing kids with the things they need to grow and have a good, meaningful life.
She Quit Social Media
Though the break was temporary due to the hate she received. It’s basically a golden rule in Hollywood that you shouldn’t a) Google yourself, or b) read online comments. Gomez clearly did the latter and quit due to the body shamers who had noted that she’d put on weight.
How rude! People are totally messed up sometimes! We still love you, Selena, no matter your size!
She’s Into Extreme Sports
Like skateboarding and surfing! She loves to skateboard and surf, and the star relishes the fact that she can get some downtime and be active.
We love all the glam and the parties and the eating, but you need an outlet too!
She Wears Her Heart on Her Sleeve!
Another reason to love Selena, this one is extremely relatable. Like any other person, she’s been through heartbreak, but she isn’t afraid of showing the world how she feels!
After her relationship with Bieber ended, she was filming a music video and broke down during it. She also then broke down performing the song at the AMAs. She’s just human!
She Suffered From Anxiety
Despite being one of the world’s most famous musicians and singers, Gomez isn’t impervious to online hate and online trolls. In her interviews, Gomez has shared that she suffered anxiety, panic attacks, and bouts of depression over the years in the spotlight.
Due to the online comments and hateful attitudes of people, she started taking more frequent breaks. Anything for your mental health gal!
