Singing sensation Selena Gomez may be soaring high currently with success knocking on her doorstep, but what goes on behind the scenes is something entirely different.
The 27-year-old Rare crooner poured her heart out on the Genius YouTube channel, shedding light on her self-esteem issues and how she feels “alone.”
“Some days when I wake up and I am annoyed and I am like, ‘I am going to be alone forever.’ But after that 15 minutes go away, I say to myself, ‘I know that there is someone for everybody,” she said.
She further said that she still considers herself a “baby” and knows that “this isn’t the end all be all.”

She explained the chorus of her song Rare in the video saying that it stemmed from her self-esteem and confidence being a continuous struggle for her.
“It’s getting better with time and age, but it will always be something that I’m working on,” she said, adding: “I think recently this is the most I’ve ever been vocal about, actually I deserve this, and I have a right to claim this and I have a right to put out things that I want to put out and talk about the things that I want to talk about.”
“So this is the first time that I’ve actually said it and the reason why is because I didn’t want it to sound, I didn’t want to sound like a [expletive]. ‘I deserve everything and you can’t have me unless I have this, this, this,'” Gomez admitted to Genius, adding that she knows this is “not the case.”
“That’s just where my mind goes to. So what I think is so important about this chorus is that it’s acknowledging, ‘Hey, I don’t have it all. I’m not saying I’m perfect, but I do know that I’m special,’ and I think that is a humble approach of saying, ‘Why don’t you see that I am different?’,” she further added.
