Selena Gomez Won’t Make Music Anymore, Hints At Retirement
Selena Gomez carved a niche for herself and is now one of the most celebrated singers in the industry. Back from her Disney days to her latest song, Selfish Love with DJ Snake, Gomez has managed to make her fans groove, and fall in love with her work. But it looks like the singer is now having second thoughts about continuing her career in music. During an interview with Vogue, she talked about her music journey, and hinted at retirement from singing.
Gomez said, “It’s hard to keep doing music when people don’t necessarily take you seriously. I’ve had moments where I’ve been like, ‘What’s the point? Why do I keep doing this?’ Lose You to Love Me, I felt was the best song I’ve ever released, and for some people, it still wasn’t enough. I think there are a lot of people who enjoy my music, and I’m so thankful for that. I keep going, but I think the next time I do an album, it’ll be different. I want to give it one last try before I maybe retire music.”
This might be heart-breaking news for all her fans, but Gomez added that she is thinking of giving acting a real shot. “I haven’t even touched the surface of what I want to do. The parts that I want are the ones I need help with. I can’t wait for the moment when a director can see that I’m capable of doing something that no one’s ever seen,” said the singer. She is currently shooting for her new Hulu comedy series, Only Murders in New York.
She also talked about her new album, a Spanish EP Revelacion, which will be out Friday and revealed that the project is a homage to her heritage. She said that since a lot of her fanbase is Latin, and she has been telling them that the album was going to happen for years, she is happy it is finally coming out.
Before she shifted to the music space, Gomez featured in Disney’s show Wizards of Waverly Place from 2007 to 2012. She got massive recognition for her role in the show at the age of 15. She is also a producer and her show, 13 Reasons Why, got a lot of appreciation from the audience.
