Selena Gomez is trying to change her “sad and hurt” image by her latest album, Rare.
At this time, it can be seen that she made this conscious decision of changing.
The singer, 28, opened clearly to the Rolling Stone Magazine, which includes making the record. She dropped that in January, and she strictly revealed that she had had more control than ever for the album and what she’s willing to say.
“I wanted people to take away that this was a journey and that it was completely closed. I don’t want people to see me as just sad and hurt. I didn’t want that anymore. I wanted people to know that I experienced something real, and that part of me is over,” she said.
“I spent years of my life being very conscious of what I say and what I do,” Selena explained. “Not because I was scared – I just didn’t know if I had a right to say something. I didn’t know if it would get messy and cause any sort of uproar. I wanted it to be very safe.”
“The moment I started working with Interscope, I was listening to Good for You, and that’s obviously Justin and Julia. I fell in love with the song. It was exactly where I was stepping into: being more of a woman and being OK with who I am, and not so scared to explore deeper into that.”
