Weeks after releasing the song “It Ain’t Me”, Selena Gomez is admitting that she has no plans to drop more new music anon.
The popular singer made this unexpected confession in a new interview recently, as she revealed that she’s not even working on music right now. Selena shifts her focus to more important things, including her personal life.
Claiming that Selena is “putting a pause” on new music, she’s instead “taking time to have a personal life.”
“I’m doing things that I love that I’m passionate about that I care about,” Selena said when discussing her new music plans this week. “It just makes me happy.”
The news that Selena doesn’t have a new album to follow the release of “It Ain’t Me” will likely come as the blow to her fans. Though, it was revealed last year by Harper’s Bazaar in December that she was back in the studio with Justin Tranter.
But this isn’t the first time Selena has admitted in recent weeks that her music career and a new album isn’t her priority.
Selena Gomez said earlier this month that she has no plans to put any new music out there just yet, during her cover shoot for the April 2017 issue of Vogue magazine that she’s just not feeling the desire to get creative and put out a new album right now.
“I love what I do, and I’m aware of how lucky I am, but, how can I say this without sounding weird?” Gomez asked of her career. “I just really can’t wait for people to forget about me.”
“For a change, it feels like I don’t have to be holding my breath and waiting for somebody to judge a piece of work that I’m doing,” Selena said after admitting in the pages of the latest issue of the high-fashion magazine that she’s ready to be forgotten. “I’m not eager to chase a moment. I don’t think there’s a moment for me to chase,” continued Gomez.
Selena also confirmed to the magazine that she has no plans to continue on with the “Revival Tour” that she canceled last year after Us Weekly reported that Selena entered rehab for several weeks to treat her lupus.
“Tours are a really lonely place for me,” Selena said of why she decided to cancel more than 30 shows across the globe in 2016, cutting her “Revival Tour” seriously short as she sought help. “My self-esteem was shot. I was depressed, anxious.”
“I’ve cried on stage more times than I can count, and I’m not a cute crier,” Gomez then added of how she would break down on stage during her most recent tour.
