Selena Gomez became the heroine of the September issue of Elle US. The shooting was stylized in the spirit of “old Hollywood”: red lipstick, large curls and classic silhouettes. The pictures show a Chanel tweed suit, a Gucci lace dress and Amina Muaddi shoes.
In an interview, Selena talked about what she experienced over the last few years of her life. “My lupus, kidney transplant, chemotherapy, mental illness, experiencing a breakup in public – all of this should have led me astray.”
In quarantine, she launched her own beauty brand Rare Beauty, and also starred in the series Only Murders in the Building… For each kissing scene, she had to rinse her mouth with Listerine — 7 to 10 times. “It burned my mouth,” Selena says. “I thought I was going to vomit. I never had such a filming experience.” She is currently filming a cooking show as well. Selena + Chef.
The singer also spoke about her decision to leave social networks. “I’ve spent years of my life trying to be like other people,” Selena said, adding that it was “a relief” to put down her “tiny phone with 150 million people in it.”
“I saw the photo and asked myself, ‘Damn it, why do I look wrong?’ And it didn’t do me any good.” Now her assistant is engaged in instagram, and the singer herself does not even know the password for the account.
