AceShowbiz - Selena Gomez is convinced her past relationships have been "cursed."
Selena spoke as she explained why the word "rare" means so much to her after she got it tattooed on her neck, named her Rare Beauty make-up line after it, and used the term for the title of her most recent album.
In a conversation with Vogue Australia, she said, "I think most of my experiences in relationships have been cursed. I've been way too young to be exposed to certain things when I was in relationships. I guess I needed to find what was that word for me, because I felt so less than in past relationships, and never really felt equal."
"It wasn't even necessarily like: 'Oh, I feel that way, let me sing it.' It was almost like: 'Actually, I need to feel that way about myself.' I think that my family, and my chosen family - I feel like I'm surrounded by real people."
Meanwhile, the "Lose You to Love Me" hitmaker is known for being open about her mental health, and recently said it has given her a "sense of freedom" as she bids to normalise conversations about it.
"I think it's less scary when you talk about it," she shared. "So, that's some sense of freedom that I gained once I did. I think I had a moment where I felt different, like, 'Why do I react this way?' 'Why do I feel the way I do and nobody else does?' and I had to figure that out. I think my journey personally has been all about my timing."
