Selena Gomez Gives Zero Fucks Lately And We Absolutely Love It

"Of course I care, but I care less and less, and that’s so freeing."

Selena Gomez is InStyle magazine's latest cover star.

1. She made career sacrifices for a chance at inner peace: "Last year I canceled my tour and went away for 90 days, and it was the best thing that I ever could’ve done."

"I had no phone, nothing, and I was scared. But it was amazing, and I learned a lot."

"Everything I cared about, I stopped caring about. I came out, and it felt like, OK, I can only go forward.”

"And there are still days. I go to therapy. I believe in that and talking about where you are. But I’m in a really, really healthy place."

2. Selena only has room for positive vibes in her life: "I don’t depend on one area of my life to make me happy."

"It’s really important for me to love and nourish my friends and family and to make sure that I never get influenced by a guy."


"You want someone to add to your life, not to complete you, if that makes sense. I’m lucky because he’s more of a best friend than anything else."

"I’ve wanted to be in a strong headspace for years, and I really wasn’t. Before, I was so young and easily influenced, and I’d feel insecure."

3. People's opinions of her are kind of irrelevant: "Of course I care, but I care less and less, and that’s so freeing. My livelihood can’t depend on Am I liked?”

5. She's going to speak her mind, even if it makes people uncomfortable: "I want to use my voice to be a part of things and to speak out, whether it’s about health or happiness or charities."

"If I have this platform, why wouldn’t I use it?"

6. Finally, she's learning how to adult just like the rest of us: "I’m not afraid to be wrong now. I would rather say, I stand by this. You have to not be afraid to make mistakes because that’s how you figure it all out."

"I’m ambitious in every area of my life. I want to be a better daughter, a better friend, a better influencer. I want to feel something."
