Selena Gomez mentioned she posed naked under his second studio album, The comeback.
The singer was 24 and released a black and white album cover while posing without clothes.
“I actually did an album cover and I was really ashamed after doing it“, said Selena.
“I had to work through these feelings because I realized it was related to something deep going on. And it’s a choice that I was not necessarily happy to have made, but I think I did my best, at least I try to be myself.”
Selena didn’t like the idea and posted a limited caption with the album’s release date.
“And I am not a too sexual nobody,” Selena Gomez said.
“Sometimes I like to feel sexy, but that doesn’t mean it’s for someone else. It could be for me.”
female singers and actresses follow orders to fit into the market like Selena did.
However, from their point of view, it is more difficult to get respect from other artists when installing or following these instructions.
“I felt like it was very difficult for people take me seriously“, revealed Gomez.
“I slowly went through it, and I’m really happy, but it was Very frustrating. I felt like a jokeyou know?”
