Selena Gomez Wouldn't Mind If Her Fame Went Away

Despite being a singer, actress and the new girlfriend of a total hottie, Selena Gomez wouldn’t mind letting go of her life in the spotlight. Shocking, I know.

Selena confessed this to Humans of New York's Brandon Stanton at the Met Gala on Monday, where she made a public appearance with The Weeknd and made us all swoon. But what Selena said about her current fame is a bit surprising. 

“I feel like I’m just starting, but I think I’d be fine if it all went away,” she said. “I get that from my mother. From the moment I started singing, she always reminded me that all of this was a privilege and could be taken at any moment. So singing is not how I define myself. I try to keep my identity rooted in my friendships and my faith.”

Well, damn. That’s not what I was expecting, but it’s nice to know she stays level-headed through all her fame and the press. Way to be humble, Sel. That’s why we all love you. Though I would gladly take her spotlight, I hope she wouldn't just disappear on us.
