Selena Gomez Talks Bullying: ‘People Are so Mean, It’s Exhausting’
Selena Gomez is opening up about bullying. The 22-year-old has faced a lot of hate in recent weeks, and now she’s revealing how she feels about her haters.
It’s been a tough couple of weeks for Gomez, she’s had to deal with a lot of body shamers after photos of her wearing a bathing suit surfaced online. People have been criticizing her weight and basically just being awful. But, Gomez is keeping her head held high, and rising above all of the hate.
Earlier this week, Gomez did a Q&A with Adidas NEO in celebration of her new collection. During the chat, one fan asked Gomez, “If you could change one thing in the world, what would you change and why?”
Gomez immediately replied, “Bullying. I would deactivate every single comment on any social media. I think that you should have an email where you can send in questions. But you should be able to post what you want, say what you want, be what you want, without anybody judging you or making you feel like your self-value is from an Instagram post or from people liking your post. People get so affected by that, and I would change that, because they don’t need to worry about that they need to live their life and be happy. I don’t care how many likes I get, I get a lot but I don’t really care. Like I just do it for you guys, I do it for my friends and my family and that’s how you have to look at it. I would get rid of bullying, people are so mean, it’s exhausting.”
Gomez was also asked to tell everyone “weird facts” about herself. “I feel like I love scary things, I love getting scared,” Gomez revealed. “So, I find myself putting myself in situations like haunted houses or going to haunted hospitals for my birthday, yes I’ve actually done that. I kinda like the idea of being scared, I don’t know why. Maybe I should be in a scary movie, but we’ll see.”
