Last summer, SELENA GOMEZ bagged on her tour and checked into a psychiatric facility in Tennessee. And in a new interview with “Vogue”, she explains why.
She says, quote, “Tours are a really lonely place for me. My self-esteem was shot. I was depressed, anxious. I started to have panic attacks right before getting onstage, or right after leaving the stage.
“Basically I felt I wasn’t good enough, wasn’t capable. I felt I wasn’t giving my fans anything, and they could see it.”
Part of that had to do with her fans getting older . . . quote, “I was so used to performing for kids. At concerts I used to make the entire crowd raise up their pinkies and make a pinky promise never to allow anybody to make them feel that they weren’t good enough.
“Suddenly I have . . . people in their 20s, 30s, and I’m looking into their eyes, and I don’t know what to say . . . I felt I had no wisdom to share. And so maybe I thought everybody out there was thinking, ‘This is a waste of time.'”
