Selena Gomez sent a message on Instagram, which is, I guess, what the cool kids use these days, saying “I want to reclaim my name.” She goes on to write “Sometimes I get frustrated when I hear liesabout who I am. The Internet is meant to keep you “updated” but it just takes old news and freezes it like it’s now. You have watched me in pain and I’ve owned up to it through my music and actions. I grew up with you. I am beyond excited to show you the next chapter, the TRUTH. I’ve been keeping so many secrets… I’m reborn in every moment so who knows what I’ll become.. As long as I’m happy with me. #strongisbeautiful #healthyperspectiveonthemfools ”
I’m calling bullshit. Selena, you are 22. If you were a lesbian or felt you were a man trapped in a woman’s body, we’d have heard about that by now. You’ve shown no such indication. Alcohol problem? Piffle. You ain’t no Lindsay Lohan, that’s for sure. Relationship with Justin Bieber was all fake? Hey, we suspected that and always thought you were too good for him, anyway. Drugs? You can get away with a little bit of that, honey, and it’s obvious from looking at you that you’re not exactly doing an Amy Winehouse type amount.
If you were planning on going all nuts and trying to shed your cute kid image, I think you missed your window. Miley Cyrus did that as soon as her Disney show ended. She practically had her clothes off before she left the set.
In summary, if you’ve got “a secret” it had better be a damned juicy one, because the bar has been set way high.
I suspect that your secret is just that you are actually a boring person in real life, and don’t have enough scandal going on even to shock your old bosses at Disney. But, I’ll be following the tabloids, just in case you prove me wrong.
