Selena Gomez is the first person to reach a 100 million followers on Instagram. An incredible accomplishment highlighted in TIME Magazine’s Firsts Edition on Women changing the World.
Here is The Tastemaker’s Full Interview:
“Strength is being vulnerable.”
My mom did a lot of theater growing up. So I think it was instinctual for me to perform. I loved being able to make people laugh, and if anyone was sad, I didn’t like it. I always tried to make people feel good, to feel something. So whenever I would see my mom perform, I thought, Maybe I’ll have the chance to do that one day. I would use my entire neighborhood as my stage.
When I started working as a child, my mom was the person in my life who helped guide me. I understood that acting was a job, that I would have fun, that I would enjoy it—and that if I didn’t enjoy it anymore, that I should stop doing it. I also had school to do. That’s the base of how I grew up. There were moments when I had to be like an adult, but when I was on set, I still felt like a kid.
