Former Disney star Selena Gomez spills the tea on being sexualized in the music business

Selena Gomez felt under pressure to “show some skin” earlier in her career.

The 28-year-old singer was encouraged to adopt an adult appearance in her music videos after rising to fame as a Disney child star, even though she was uncomfortable about it.

Speaking about being sexualized earlier in her career, Selena explained: “I just did things that weren’t really me. There was pressure to seem more adult on my album, ‘Revival’. (I felt) the need to show skin … I really don’t think I was (that) person.”

Selena also confessed that she hasn’t Googled herself “in years” because of her “sensitive heart”.

The ‘Lose You to Love Me’ hitmaker told Allure magazine: “I haven’t done that in years. I honestly can’t. I’m strong in a lot of ways, but I think I just have way too much of a sensitive heart.”

Selena has launched a number of business ventures during her career, including a make-up line and a clothing range.

And the chart-topping star now considers herself to be an “entrepreneur”.

Selena said: “I would definitely like to say I’m an entrepreneur … It’s more that I am in control. I am in full control of my life and everything that I do, what is out there, everything. So I would like to say, yes. I’m in charge of everything in my life.”

Meanwhile, Selena recently joked that all of her exes think she’s “crazy”.

The singer – who has previously dated Justin Bieber and The Weeknd – explained: “It’s hard to find a man in quarantine … It’s just funny that I release things that say I want a boyfriend and stuff … and I’m like, ‘I didn’t really mean it, though.’ Guys are a lot of work …

“Every one of my exes thinks I’m crazy but I don’t care.”
