Gomez just landed her very first American Vogue cover on the high-end magazine’s April issue. Channeling all the summer vibes, the singer/actress rocks a wet-look bob as well as some pieces from Michael Kors, Balenciaga and Coach.
Gomez opens up to the magazine about everything from her time in rehab to what it’s like transitioning from a child star to being a woman in the spotlight. She even tells Vogue that she no longer has Instagram on her phone, instead she’s passed off the password to her assistant.
“As soon as I became the most followed person on Instagram, I sort of freaked out. It had become so consuming to me. It’s what I woke up to and went to sleep to,” Gomez says. “I was an addict, and it felt like I was seeing things I didn’t want to see, like it was putting things in my head that I didn’t want to care about. I always end up feeling like shit when I look at Instagram. Which is why I’m kind of under the radar, ghosting it a bit.”
The interview also discusses Gomez’s upcoming collaboration with Coach. “There’s a very warm and inclusive way that Selena has with her fans,” Coach creative director Stuart Vevers tells the magazine. “That’s the nature of her power. What fashion house wouldn’t want to tap into that?”
In the end, Gomez has this to say, “Look, I love what I do, and I’m aware of how lucky I am, but—how can I say this without sounding weird? I just really can’t wait for people to forget about me.”
