"It’s really frightening at times to know that there is a sense of power- I hate using that word, but ultimately that’s what it is. You look at Angelina Jolie doing amazing things with her name- that’s awesome and I hope that inspires people. But at the same time, there’s things like being my age and working with adults and having people constantly say yes to you, and favoring you, and pampering you. It’s not the fun part for me because it’s really not normal. And it is unhealthy. I have a good mom, and I have a family that puts me in reality, giving me huge reality checks all the time and I appreciate that. Doing things like using my voice and my “platform” to be part of organizations that help is really nice. So it’s good and bad, I suppose." - Selena Gomez on How she feels about the power of fame.
The thing is, she’s so talented, you’re really going to see a different side. It’s going to be a bit more fragile. I think it’s a side you’ve never seen of her. It’s quite fantastic. It’s dark. But she’s always so lovely.
