Selena Gomez, 28, spoke candidly about how her mental health suffered at the start of the pandemic. In a conversation with Dr. Vivek Murthy on Instagram Live, the singer and beauty brand founder admitted that she fell into a "brief depression" as COVID-19 swept the United States.
At first, I could not cope with it. I fell into a brief depression. My job is constant travel, communication with people. Also, thanks to my work, I can make people happy, and that makes me happy, so it was a struggle.
I feel better now. I started working on personal projects. For example, above the cosmetic line. The main goal of the project is to earn 100 million dollars in 10 years, which will go to support people with mental problems,
- she shared.
And recently I was able to go to a recording studio. Now I can say that I went through this difficult period with the right people, did the right things and took the right steps in order not to drive myself crazy,
- summed up the performer.
In 2017, Gomez, who was diagnosed with lupus erythematosus, underwent a kidney transplant. Recently, the singer showed for the first time the scar she had after surgery. The star also said that she suffers from bipolar disorder, and until she found out the diagnosis, "felt crazy."
