Selena Gomez has been very busy these days. She’s recently received recognition from Time magazine for having the most Instagram followers, is filming a Woody Allen movie, gave a heart-wrenching speech for Hand in Hand, a Benefit for Hurricane Relief, and granted an interview with Business of Fashion. In the interview, she discussed many issues, including fame, Hollywood, and feeling lonely, though she’s surrounded by many people. She also opened up about her issues with mental health and her stay in rehab.
Selena Gomez currently has more than 126 million Instagram followers and her star power is huge. During her interview she spoke about how she can go anywhere and regularly finds people with whom she can say hello to and talk to, but when it comes to close friends, she has few.
The child of a teen mom, Selena Gomez first broke into Hollywood when she appeared on Barney as a child. She was then scouted by Disney and landed the show Wizards of Waverly Place.
She was well known for her relationship with Justin Bieber and is now romantically linked to The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye. Her singing career has taken off but through it all, Selena is not as comfortable with fame as you might think. Selena Gomez is currently filming Hotel Transylvania 3 and an untitled Woody Allen project.

Speaking to Business of Fashion, Selena said that she feels like she knows everyone but doesn’t have any real friends. She then clarified that she does have three good friends whom she can confide things with.
It’s surprising to think that someone like Selena Gomez could feel loneliness, but it shows that success, fame, and money do not guarantee happiness.
Selena then explained that it’s important to have boundaries when you’re in Hollywood and to keep a close circle of friends with whom you can trust.
