It’s hard to keep doing music when people don’t necessarily take you seriously. I’ve had moments where I’ve been like, ‘What’s the point? Why do I keep doing this?’ ‘Lose You to Love Me’ I felt was the best song I’ve ever released, and for some people it still wasn’t enough. I think there are a lot of people who enjoy my music, and for that I’m so thankful, for that I keep going, but I think the next time I do an album it’ll be different. I want to give it one last try before I maybe retire music. – Gomez
For the session Selena is wearing selected looks from top brands such as Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello (cover), Dior, Hermès, Gucci, Alberta Ferretti, Salvatore Ferragamo, and Etro.
I woke up one morning and looked at Instagram, like every other person, and I was done. I was tired of reading horrible things. I was tired of seeing other people’s lives. After that decision, it was instant freedom. My life in front of me was my life, and I was present, and I could not have been more happy about it. – Gomez
Selena Gomez will release her first Spanish language EP titled Revelación on March 12th, 2021.
