Don’t worry Selena Gomez, Mother Monster is here for you.
Lady Gaga shares that she understands Gomez’s recent hiatus from the limelight due to lupus-related anxiety and depression because she was in a similar position not too long ago.
During an interview with 103.5 KTU, radio hosts Cubby and Carolina Bermudez mentioned how Gomez decided to take time off from her “Revival” tour to deal with her health and stress issues. They asked: “Is the fame thing really that serious, where it takes you kind of a minute to check yourself?”
“I would say that fame is very isolating… [It] takes a moment for you to stabilise yourself, especially if you’re really in it for the music or for your craft, because it can be a distraction from all of those things… Suddenly, it’s about keeping up with your career… Or keeping up with number ones, or being on top,” said Gaga.
Gomez previously released a statement explaining her situation: “As many of you know, around a year ago I revealed that I have lupus, an illness that can affect people in different ways. I’ve discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges. I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off.”
If Gaga’s own experience is any indication, Selenators can be rest assured that their favourite singer will bounce back stronger than ever in time. Mother Monster went on to share why she took time away from music before working on her upcoming album.
“With this record, I just tried to spend the last three years re-calibrating myself… So that I could have human connection with people all over the world that maybe didn’t think that they could ever have a connection with somebody like [me],” the pop star revealed.
It’s nice to see pop singers supporting each other. During Kesha’s public legal battle with Dr. Luke, Gaga also lend her support to the singer. We’re glad that Gomez is doing what’s best for herself and we hope she gets better soon.
Gaga recently dropped her high-anticipated new single, “Perfect Illusion” and fans are cray over it.
