Song Meanings and Facts
“ghost of you” by selena gomez.
by Amanda London · Published March 27, 2021 · Updated March 27, 2021
As pointed out later in the article, Selena Gomez’s “Ghost of You” made headlines in 2021, over a decade after it was released, due to comparison in name it drew to a song Justin Bieber dropped in March of that year entitled “ Ghost “.
At the time we debunked the theory that the two were related since fans of pop stars as monumental as these tend to search for even the most superficial evidence to link their lyrics to true-life romances, for as you probably already know Bieber and Gomez dated for some time.
However, in now researching “Ghost of You” also, it must be said that the two tracks are not only similar in name but also very alike in sentiment.
And we’re not going back now and say that “Ghost” is actually about Selena or anything like that. Rather let’s just say it wouldn’t be completely ludicrous to believe that it was inspired by “Ghost of You” overall.
Similarities between “Ghost of You” and “Ghost”
For instance, both cases are in fact love songs in which the singer is missing the “ghost” of an ex. And whereas on the surface, using such terminology may imply that said individual is dead, again in both cases this is apparently not the case.
Rather the titular terminology is more of a metaphor. And what it actually points to is this ex, whom the singer was close to, no longer being in her (or in Bieber’s case his) life.
And even more specifically despite this person being permanently gone, his “ghost” still lingers, which is an allegory for her being unable to get over him.
But there are some differences also between the songs also. For instance, Selena doesn’t focus so much on the present per se. Or rather, it’s more like the way she has changed in the aftermath of falling in love.
She isn’t the same person that she was before, being “ too naïve ” back then. And apparently the reason she refers to her former self in such a less-than-flattering manner is because in the midst of everything falling apart, she kinda feels dumb for falling in love with this guy in the first place.
Or as she puts it in the first verse, she “ feel(s) so much better now ” that he’s gone. So it’s pretty apparent that she considered him to be akin to a toxic partner.
Sentiment of “Ghost of You”
Yet and still, as stated earlier such is not the thesis sentiment. Instead it is the fact that this ex still holds a lasting presence in her heart.
The vocalist is hopeful that with enough time and prayer, she will be able to completely get him out of her system. Yet for the time being, she concludes that she must still be stuck on him for “a reason”.
So it is arguable that the reason she no longer views him favorably isn’t so much because he mistreated her during their relationship. Rather she really lost faith in him after their romance fell apart, insinuating that his behavior may have been the catalyst which caused such to happen.
In other words, what she is primarily upset about is him leaving in the first place.
So conclusively, the vocalist of this song is heartbroken in the worst kind of way. And that is likely due to being jilted by the man who stole her heart.
Selena Gomez was actually an actress before becoming a music star. In fact she was a young child actress, appearing on Barney & Friends from around the time she was 10 years old.
Then later she got down with Disney before fully venturing into music. And upon doing so she had her own band called the Scene.
In fact she released three albums as the lead singer of Selena Gomez & the Scene before eventually going solo. And they were pretty successful. For instance, those three albums (which are listed below) all made it within the top 10 of the Billboard 200.
- “Kiss & Tell” (2009)
- “A Year Without Rain” (2010)
- “When the Sun Goes Down” (2011)
And the song “Ghost of You” is from the second of those projects, which reached fourth place on the Billboard 200.
But of course upon going solo, Gomez became an even bigger success. In fact all of the solo albums she has released to date, “Stars Dance” (2013), “Revival” (2015) and “Rare” (2020), scored a number 1 on the Billboard 200.
Release of “Ghost of You”
At that time this track was dropped, on 21 September 2010, the main membership of the Scene consisted of Greg Garman (drums), Joey Clement (bass guitar), Dane Forrest (keyboards) and Ethan Roberts (lead guitar).
Writing and Production Credits
This song was produced and co-written by Jonas Jeberg, a musician from Denmark. And the other cowriters are Ahmed Bittar, Shelly Peiken and Rasmus Seebach.
Resurgence in Popularity in 2021
This track experienced a slight bump in popularity – or at least quite a few mentions – in early 2021 when some people began speculating that Selena Gomez’s ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber, named his track “ Ghost “, which came out during that time, after this one.
As argued earlier, that may have been the case – and then some. However, some fans then took the theory a step further to actually postulate that “Ghost” is about Selena Gomez, which seems less likely.

So, what is Justin really singing about in ‘Ghost’? And is Justin back with Selena?
Let’s take a look…
Justin Bieber’s ‘Ghost’ lyrics meaning explained
Speaking about the importance of putting his heartfelt track ‘Ghost’ on his new album, Justin revealed during an interview with a US radio station that, to him, the track is about losing someone, which can relate to what people have gone through during the coronavirus pandemic, as well as losing loved ones in other ways.
He said: “I think that a lot of people in this day and age, in this time, are losing loved ones due to this crazy virus. But there’s a lot of people who have lost people from other things and just lose people, might not be a death, but have lost people that were in their life for a season and now that person isn’t.
“So, that can feel like a loss almost like you’re grieving that person so this song is kind of like that vibe of grieving that person but still having hope in the process.”

Is Justin Bieber ‘Ghost’ about Selena Gomez?
The many fan theories out there have sparked rumours that the track is about his former long-term girlfriend, who he was in an on-again-off-again relationship with for eight years.
One theory claims that the title of the track gives a nod to Selena’s 2014 track, ‘Ghost Of You’, which also alludes to missing someone after a failed relationship.
Despite JB not confirming the track was penned about his ex, it hasn’t stopped people thinking that the lyrics allude to their turbulent failed romance, with JB singing: “I miss you more than life”.

Is Justin Bieber back with Selena Gomez?
The fan theories about Justin’s ‘Ghost’ alluding to his romance with ‘Lose You To Love Me’ songstress Selena has led people to even question if his heartfelt lyrics mean the pair are somehow involved again.
The short answer is no, as Justin is happily married to his wife, Hailey Baldwin after they tied the knot back in 2018.
He has also penned a number of tracks on ‘Justice’ about her, sharing his affection for the model.
Selena has also moved on from JB, tapping into a new musical era following the tracks she released about heartache in 2019, revealing she has healed from her past relationship with the 'Yummy' star.

A lot of questions. The cumulative drama between Hailey Bieber and Selena Gomez has online fans wondering: Is “ Ghost” by Justin Bieber’s lyrics about Selena Gomez?
The song was released on March 19, 2021, as part of Justice , his sixth studio album. The album was recorded during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. In an interview with Vogue , he revealed why he named his album, “I named it Justice because there’s so much injustice in this world and there has been since the beginning of time […] My name [Justin] actually means justice, so there’s that. I’m really honored to play a small part and be able to make music that inspires and can uplift people in this time.”
The backbone of the album has inspiration from civil rights champion Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and includes love messages to his wife, Hailey. “I’m a hopeless romantic. This is one of those songs where I get to talk about how much I love my wife,” he told Vogue, before singing along enthusiastically to lyrics such as, “I don’t want to fall asleep / I’d rather fall in love […] Two seconds without you is like two months, ” and “I love the way you love your mom,’ and ‘I still relive that second I met my biggest blessing / Pray for you, look what God has done.”
So are “Ghost” by Justin Bieber lyrics about his relationship with his wife or with Selena Gomez? Read more below.
What is the meaning behind “Ghost” by Justin Bieber’s lyrics?
What is the meaning behind “Ghost” by Justin Bieber’s lyrics? The “Stay” singer told Capital XM the true meaning behind the song. “There’s a lot of people who have lost people from other things and just lose people, might not be a death, but have lost people that were in their life for a season and now that person isn’t,” he revealed . “So, that can feel like a loss almost like you’re grieving that person so this song is kind of like that vibe of grieving that person but still having hope in the process.”
Bieber explained to Vogue that the song is about “losing somebody you love. And I know a lot of people have; I know this has been a really challenging year where we’ve lost loved ones and relationships too. The hook is saying, ‘If I can’t get close to you, I’ll settle for the ghost of you.’ That works for this quarantine situation […] we’re not relating and connecting in the same way. It has allowed us to only really have these memories. I hope this resonates and I hope it fills your heart up with joy or comfort in some sort of way.” In the music video of the song, Justin stars as he is consoling his grandmother after the loss of his grandfather.
Songwriter and producer Jon Bellion made a tribute to his grandmother through this song. “Wrote this one about my grandmother. Really cool to feel her every time I turn the radio on in the car. Miss you Gma.” he tweeted . On April 2, 2022, the song peaked at #5 on the Hot 100. It is Bieber’s 26th song to reach the top 10 on the chart.
Fans of Justin and Selena speculated that the lyrics were about their tumultuous relationship and his subsequent marriage to Hailey Bieber. One Selena fan tweeted, “so, if we look really carefully at the ghost music vid by justin bieber, it’s obviously about losing your soulmate. he is singing from his grandmother’s perspective who lost her husband, and same thing happened to justin, he lost selena, his true love” Another fan tweeted during the release of the song, “Listen I’m not a jelena shipper,” one fan tweeted, “and I’m not even one to throw selena into everything involving justin bc at the end of the day they’re two separate people living two separate lives…but ghost screams selena like…SCREAMS her.” There are also similarities between this song and Selena’s 2010 song “Ghost of You.”
Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber were in a very public on-and-off relationship from 2010 to 2018. The couple had its ups and downs but ultimately ended in 2018. Shortly after their breakup, Justin married model Hailey Baldwin in a courthouse ceremony in 2018.
In an episode of Call Her Daddy, Hailey denied the rumors that Justin cheated on Selena with her. “When him and I ever started, like, hooking up or anything of that sort, he was not ever in a relationship ever — at any point,” she explained. “I’m not interested in doing that and I never was. … I can say — period, point blank — I was never with him when he was in a relationship with anybody,” Hailey said on “Call Her Daddy.” She continued, “It’s not my character to mess with someone’s relationship.” Hailey added that she could “understand” how her and Justin’s relationship could look different “from the outside.” She continued, “That was a situation where I know for a fact that it was the right thing for them to close that door. They were not in a relationship at that time, but of course, there’s a very long history there. … It has nothing to do with me. I know that it closed a chapter and I think it was the best thing that could have happened for him to move on and be engaged and get married and move on with his life in that way.”
Hailey also revealed during the podcast that she and Selena have spoken since she married Justin. “That’s why I’m like, it’s all respect, it’s all love,” she said. “That’s also why I feel like if everybody on our side knows what happened and we’re good and we could walk away from it with clarity and respect then that’s fine. … Which had brought me a lot of peace and I’m like, ‘We know what happened it is what it is.’ You’re never going to be able to correct every narrative.”
She also responded to claims she “stole” Justin from Selena. “This is so crazy, I’ve literally never talked about this ever,” she said. “A lot of the hate and perpetuation comes from [people thinking], like, ‘Oh, you stole him.’ It’s about people knowing the truth. Because there’s a truth.”She continued, “It just comes from, like, the fact that they wished he had ended up with someone else, and that’s fine,” she said. “Like, you can wish that all you want but that’s just not the case.” She also claimed that Justin was also hurt by the comparisons between her and Selena. “I know that for him that’s hurtful because if we have moved on, why can’t you?” she said.
The drama continues to unfold online when fans uncovered different activities between the Rhode and Rare Beauty founders. In one instance, Selena thanked a fan for acknowledging her struggles after her breakup from Justin in 2018 in a comment in a comment on a TikTok video in February 2023. “Does anybody just feel really bad for Selena Gomez? Like can you imagine going through a breakup so publicly with a guy who you were in love with for seven years and then like two months later he just marries someone,” TikTok user @ essymakingsounds said in the video. “And then you have a chronic illness or an autoimmune disease — I can’t imagine that it’s fun. Living with that and the flareups in the public eye while people are watching you.”
The user continued, “And then dealing with mental health when life is hard enough already. Kudos to her for being so brave and so public and so open about her journey. But I bet if we ever walked a day in her shoes — where everything is so publicized — that would be so hard. So whenever I think about a hard day, I think about Selena Gomez. I feel bad saying that but if she can do it then everybody can.”
Selena thanked the user in the comments and revealed that the TikTok “made” her “cry.” “That made me cry thank you!” she wrote.

Some Fans Think This New Justin Bieber Song Is About Selena Gomez
Apparently, “Ghost” radiates big #Jelena energy.
Justin Bieber’s Justice album has finally arrived, and fans are already dissecting the lyrics. In fact, some listeners are convinced that one particular song radiates major #Jelena energy . “I miss your touch some nights when I'm hollow / I know you cross the bridge that I can't follow," Bieber sings on “Ghost.” But is he hinting at missing Selena Gomez while currently being married to model Hailey Bieber? Honestly, it’s very unlikely. But hey, Jelena shippers can dream.
While that one line certainly raised some red flags among Beliebers on the internet, it’s not the only lyric about missing a loved one. “Since the love that you left is all that I get / I want you to know that / If I can't be close to you / I'll settle for the ghost of you,” the pop star croons on the chorus. “I miss you more than life / And if you can't be next to me / Your memory is ecstasy.”
Upon hearing the song for the first time, fans flooded Twitter to share their thoughts and speculate about whether or not Gomez was the inspiration behind the track. “Justin Bieber wrote ‘Ghost’ about Selena Gomez you cannot prove me wrong,” one person tweeted . “The chorus in ghost... there's no way this isn’t about Selena,” another fan wrote . Several other people on social media agreed.
Clearly, it didn’t take much to convince some people that Bieber still has feelings for Gomez. However, many fans refuted that theory entirely, explaining that the song was actually written for anyone who lost a loved one to COVID-19.
Those who have been following along since Bieber and Gomez’s most recent split in 2018 know very well that Bieber is not here for anyone comparing his past relationship to his current one. Last year, for example, Bieber took to Instagram to slam a fan for saying that Jelena shippers need to “bombard” his wife’s Instagram live with comments about how “Selena is better.”
“This sad excuse of a human just encouraged people on video to literally go after my wife telling people to say that my previous relationship was better so on and so fourth [sic],” Bieber wrote on his Instagram story at the time. “I just wanted to share this so people get an idea of what we face on a day to day. It is extremely hard to choose to take the high road when I see people like this try and rally to gather people to bully the person I love the most in this world. It is not right.”
Hailey, for her part, took to Instagram after that incident to remind her followers to lift other women up instead of bringing them down. "It has truly gotten to a level of anger and hate that is shockingly unhealthy and sad," she wrote. "I would never in a million years wish for someone to be treated this way and I will never condone this kind of hateful behavior. I want only to support, uplift, and encourage other women in this industry and wish them nothing but love and success and I wish for all of my followers and supporters to do the same!!”

Selena Gomez on Her Mental Health and Life With Her Little Sister
By Margaux Anbouba
“I don’t think I’ve ever said this to anyone in my life,” Selena Gomez utters with a tiny cringe at the end of our interview. “But if you’re planning on buying something from Rare Beauty, please buy my products on October 10th.”
The day holds a special place for the singer, actress, and founder of Rare Beauty . October 10th is World Mental Health Day, and in celebration, Sephora will be donating 100% of all Rare Beauty product sales worldwide to the brand’s complementary nonprofit: the Rare Impact Fund . It’s something that truly excites her.
Gomez has been open about her own journey with mental health. Her 2022 documentary, Selena Gomez: My Mind and Me , shares the story of the star going public with her diagnosis of bipolar disorder. Since then, she has continued to speak openly about her mental health struggles, her battle with lupus (she underwent a kidney transplant in 2017), and how it’s all affecting her daily life.
“I don’t feel good all the time,” Gomez says. One of her biggest outlets is spending time with her 10-year-old sister, Gracie Elliott. “She reminds me of a perspective in life that can be a bit simpler and pure. Even just having a moment with her makes me feel better.”
The ability to be her true self around supportive friends, like fellow pop star Taylor Swift , also makes a huge difference in her life. “I can gauge the difference between someone who wants to actually get to know me versus someone who just wants to know me as a person,” Gomez says. “I’m grateful that I can tell.”
Gomez also has some advice for people who want to support a loved one who is going through a mental health struggle of their own: “Start with listening. One of the key components of a friendship for me is trust. I would also say: Be careful with who you trust. Hopefully someone can just hear you out and not judge you. I believe in unconditional love and that if you can’t be your authentic self, maybe you shouldn’t be around those people.”
On October 10, Sephora will be donating 100% of Rare Beauty product sales worldwide, both in-store and online, to the Rare Impact Fund in honor of World Mental Health Day.

Martin Short questioned whether Selena Gomez would be a 'pop princess nightmare' on 'Only Murders in the Building'
- Martin Short questioned whether Selena Gomez would be a "pop princess nightmare" before they met.
- The "Only Murders in the Building" costars met for the first time on set.
- However, Short said Gomez turned out to be "fabulous."
Martin Short questioned whether his "Only Murder in the Building" costar Selena Gomez would be a "pop princess nightmare" before they met.
While attending Gomez's inaugural Rare Impact Fund Benefit earlier this week, Short told People that Gomez turned out to be the opposite of a nightmare.
"The first day we shot, I had never met Selena . Because of COVID, we'd only Zoomed," Short said. "And I was driving to work and I thought, 'I wonder what Selena's could be like?' I mean, she could be a nightmare. She could be a pop princess nightmare."
The comedian added: "Right away — from the first second we started to the makeup room — it was, like, fabulous. Always on time, always knows her lines. So good, so talented, such a pro — it's fabulous."
The third season of "Only Murders in the Building" finished airing on Hulu earlier this week, and the show has already been renewed for a fourth season .
—Only Murders in the Building 🕵️♀️🕵️♂️🕵️♂️ (@OnlyMurdersHulu) October 3, 2023
Short and Gomez's costar Steve Martin , who also cocreated the show, revealed back in 2021 that the cozy murder mystery series was originally intended to star three older men solving crimes.
However, producers eventually decided to write a younger woman into the show — with Gomez landing the part of Mabel.
In 2021, cocreator John Hoffman told the New York Times that they created a younger character so that the main characters wouldn't be too similar.
"Don't we want an alien in their world? The thing that we're not expecting, that doesn't make sense?" Hoffman recalled.
Gomez, 31, told TheWrap earlier this year that she worried that she wouldn't bond with Short, 73, and Martin, 78, before they met.
"I remember when I was leaving LA to go and shoot the first season, I was worried that I'd be a little lonely because I'd be on set and most of the time I would be with Steve and Marty, who I had only met briefly on Zoom," she said. "And the moment I got on set they made me feel included."
Gomez added: "Eventually they kind of just took me under their wing and picked on me and made me laugh and had words of wisdom when I needed them... Some of my best friends are 70-year-olds."

Turn my back to the door Feel so much better now Don't even try anymore Nothing left to lose There's a voice that's in the air Saying don't look back nowhere There's a voice that's always there And I'll never be Quite the same as I was before This part of you still remains Though it's out of focus You're just somewhere that I've been And I won't go back again You're just somewhere that I've been I'm breathing in, breathing out Ain't that what it's all about Living life crazy loud Like I have the right to No more words in my mouth Nothing left to figure out, but I don't think I'll ever break through The ghost of you And I'll never be like I was The day I met you Too naive, yes I was Boy that's why I let you in Wear your memory like a stain Can't erase or numb the pain Here to stay with me forever I'm breathing in, breathing out Ain't that what it's all about Living life crazy loud Like I have the right to No more words in my mouth Nothing left to figure out, but I don't think I'll ever break through The ghost of you One of these days I'll wake up from this bad dream I'm dreaming One of these days I'll pray that I'll be over, over, over you One of these days I'll realize that I'm so tired of feeling confused But for now there's a reason that You're still here in my heart I'm breathing in, breathing out Ain't that what it's all about Living life crazy loud Like I have the right to No more words in my mouth Nothing left for me to doubt, but I don't think I'll ever break through The ghost of you Breathing in, breathing out Breathing in, breathing out Like I have the right to No more words in my mouth Nothing left to figure out, but I don't think I'll ever break through The ghost of you

Ghost Of You
Turned my back to the door Feel so much better now Don't even try anymore Nothing left to lose
There's a voice that's in the air Saying: Don't look back nowhere There's a voice that's always there
And I'll never be quite the same As I was before this Part of you still remains Though it's out of focus
You're just somewhere that I've been And I won't go back again You're just somewhere that I've been
I'm breathing in, breathing out Ain't that what it's all about? Livin' life crazy loud Like I have the right to No more words in my mouth Nothing left to figure out But I don't think I'll ever break though The ghost of you
And I'll never be like I was The day I met you Too naive, yes I was Boy, that's why I let you in Wear your memory like a stain Can't erase or numb the pain Here to stay with me forever
One of these days I'll wake up From this bad dream I'm dreaming One of these days I pray That I'll be over-over-over you
One of these days I'll realize that I'm so tired of feeling confused But for now there's a reason That you're still here in my heart
I'm breathing in, breathing out Ain't that what it's all about? Livin' life crazy loud Like I have the right to No more words in my mouth Nothing left for me to doubt But I don't think I'll ever break though The ghost of you
Breathing in, breathing out Breathing in, breathing out Like I have the right to
No more words in my mouth Nothing left to figure out But I don't think I'll ever break through The ghost of you
Fantasma de ti
Le di la espalda a la puerta Me siento mucho mejor ahora Ni siquiera lo intentes más Nada que perder
Hay una voz en el aire Diciendo: no mires atrás a ninguna parte Hay una voz que siempre está ahí
Y nunca seré lo mismo Como era antes de esto Parte de ti aún permanece Aunque está fuera de foco
Estás en algún lugar donde he estado Y no volveré otra vez Estás en algún lugar donde he estado
Estoy respirando, exhalando ¿No es eso de lo que se trata? Viviendo la vida locamente ruidosa Como si tuviera derecho a No mas palabras en mi boca Nada queda por resolver Pero no creo que alguna vez me rompa El fantasma de ti
Y nunca seré como era El dia que te conoci Demasiado ingenuo, sí, yo era Chico, por eso te dejé entrar Usa tu memoria como una mancha No se puede borrar ni adormecer el dolor Aquí para estar conmigo para siempre
Uno de estos días me despertaré De este mal sueño que estoy soñando Uno de estos días rezo Que voy a estar por encima de ti
Uno de estos días me daré cuenta de que Estoy tan cansado de sentirme confundido Pero por ahora hay una razón Que sigues aquí en mi corazón
Estoy respirando, exhalando ¿No es eso de lo que se trata? Viviendo la vida locamente ruidosa Como si tuviera derecho a No mas palabras en mi boca Nada me queda para dudar Pero no creo que alguna vez me rompa El fantasma de ti
Respirando, exhalando Respirando, exhalando Como si tuviera derecho a
No mas palabras en mi boca Nada queda por resolver Pero no creo que pueda romper El fantasma de ti

Selena Gomez’s ‘Mystery Man’ in Paris Isn’t Actually a Secret Boyfriend
Fans quickly identified him—and his connection to her friend group.
It didn’t take long for Selena Gomez’s visit to the City of Love to spark some dating rumors. On Monday, Page Six reported that Gomez was photographed holding hands with a “mystery man” while leaving a hotel where she had dinner with friends, including Brooklyn and Nicola Peltz Beckham. The group also attended a Paris Saint-Germain soccer game that day.
But the man isn’t Gomez’s boyfriend, fans quickly pointed out . He’s Ramsey Austin, and he’s dating Theresa Mingus, one of Gomez’s closest friends.
Mingus is also with Gomez and the group in Paris. She even shared photos of her and Austin having a cute PDA moment there.
She appeared with Gomez at the game, wearing a gray blazer at the end of the group’s row:
Gomez, meanwhile, went viral over the weekend when she posted a TikTok poking fun at her single status. She has been vocal about not being taken on her social media for months:
However, Gomez is very dedicated to her friends. Mingus and Gomez, in particular, have a years-long history, with Mingus once working as Gomez’s assistant. Mingus even discussed how it felt watching Gomez’s mental health struggles in the singer’s documentary, My Mind & Me .
Mingus also runs La’Mariette, a swimwear line that’s featured Gomez as a model and a collaborator. “She’s just so supportive,” Mingus told ELLE.com in an October 2020 interview.
For her Paris outing with friends yesterday, Gomez wore a mesh Ronny Kobo leopard dress, which is still available. She paired it with a leather Alexander McQueen robe:
Ember Dress - Leopard Print
The singer teased her next Paris look on Instagram on Monday, posting a selfie of her in a black blazer and blue eye makeup:
Alyssa Bailey is the senior news and strategy editor at ELLE.com, where she oversees coverage of celebrities and royals (particularly Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton). She previously held positions at InStyle and Cosmopolitan. When she's not working, she loves running around Central Park, making people take #ootd pics of her, and exploring New York City.

Selena gomez on how her beauty brand overlaps with her mental health advocacy.

Selena Gomez is known for a lot of things: her music, beloved acting roles, mental health advocacy and, in the last few years, Rare Beauty.
Through the beauty line, the Only Murders in the Building actress found a way to intertwine beauty products with mental health initiatives.
Events of the week: rare impact fund benefit, 'loki,' new york film fest and more, selena gomez hosts inaugural rare impact fund benefit, calling mental health fund "the most important thing that i've ever done".
“When I was younger, I thought I could save the world,” Gomez told the publication, crying. “It breaks my heart to hear a girl come up to me and say, ‘I was so close to taking my life, but when I watched your documentary, I couldn’t imagine doing that anymore.’ That’s the coolest gift, but yeah, look at me…,” she said, pointing at her tears. “It’s crazy to have that responsibility.”
The nonprofit aims to raise $100 million in 10 years in an effort to make mental health services and education more accessible for young people around the world. Her first annual Rare Impact Fund Benefit will take place in Los Angeles on Oct. 4, with appearances from her Only Murders co-star, Martin Short, and music producer Marshmello, featuring a special performance by H.E.R.
Elsewhere in the profile, the “Calm Down” singer spoke about her 90-day stint at a treatment facility in Tennessee, her lupus diagnosis and her eventual kidney transplant because of it. She also touched on revealing on an Instagram Live with Miley Cyrus that she had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, something she struggled to open up about.
When asked why she thought her fans were so loyal to her, the My Mind & Me documentary subject explained she thinks it’s because she’s relatable for a lot of young women.
“I’m not unattainable,” she said. “I look at someone like a Beyoncé, and I am amazed. My jaw drops. Every part of her is just impeccable, and it’s just so beautiful. I went to her show and was blown away. But I’m just not that, and that’s OK. I’m me, and I’m a little silly, but I also like being sexy and fun, and I also want to do good with the time I have here. We need goddesses like Beyoncé and Adele. But I’m just happy to be your best friend.”
