Everything that I’m attached to has a charity aspect. If something good isn’t coming out of it, I’m not going to do it. I don’t need money, I need people who want to fight with me. – Selena Gomez
For the story Selena is wearing selected pieces from top brands such as Chanel, Gucci, Giuseppe Zanotti, Louis Vuitton, Prabal Gurung, Alessandra Rich, and Brandon Maxwell.
I don’t have it (Instagram) on my phone, so there’s no temptation. I suddenly had to learn how to be with myself. That was annoying, because in the past, I could spend hours looking at other people’s lives. I would find myself down nearly two years in someone’s feed, and then I’d realize, ‘I don’t even know this person!’ Now I get information the proper way. When my friends have something to talk about, they call me and say, ‘Oh, I did this.’ They don’t say, ‘Wait, did you see my post?’ – Selena Gomez
Make sure to watch Selena in Hulu‘s new TV series Only Murders in the Building set to premiere on August 31th, 2021. 10 episode comedy series created by Steve Martin and John Hoffman, tells a story of three strangers who are obsession with true crime, and find themselves caught up in one.
