Selena Gomez Covers Vogue / Teases Possible Retirement From Music Due To Not Being Taken “Seriously”

Published: Tuesday 9th Mar 2021 by Sam

Selena Gomez has been unveiled as the April cover star of Vogue Magazine.

Posing it up in a color-kissed shoot lensed by Nadine Ijewere, the multi-hyphenate star also sat down for a candid interview.

Within she opens up in earnest about the juxtaposition between her celebrity and the lack of respect for her artistry as a musician.

So grating, she says, is the latter feeling that she is mulling retiring as an artist and directing her energies elsewhere.

Details below…

An excerpt from the feature read:

At one point, she’d talked to me about her frustration at feeling that her work hadn’t yet transcended her persona. “It’s hard to keep doing music when people don’t necessarily take you seriously,” she’d said. “I’ve had moments where I’ve been like, ‘What’s the point? Why do I keep doing this?’ ‘Lose You to Love Me’ I felt was the best song I’ve ever released, and for some people it still wasn’t enough. I think there are a lot of people who enjoy my music, and for that I’m so thankful, for that I keep going, but I think the next time I do an album it’ll be different. I want to give it one last try before I maybe retire music.” When I ask her about this again, she winces and says, “I need to be careful.” She clarifies that she wants to spend more time producing and to “give myself a real shot at acting.”

      I feel like ‘Lose you to love me’ and her last record ruined her chances at music. While LYTLM was cute she messed up all her live performances of the song. The album seriously lacked a VOICE, like theres so much that producers and songwriters can do. She sounded flat and uninspired in nearly all the songs. She has some good songs to her name but music just isnt her destiny. she should try acting.

    She hasn’t broken 100mil on a lot of her latest vids on YT so I guess she thinks she’s flopping for some reason. Hence why she switched to Spanish and worked with BP. Selena, your sound is too inconsistent. Fanbase is probably confused. This doesn’t help to build new fans as well. Good luck. Retirement might be best for the anxiety anyway.

    Lol! She’s right. I’ve never taken her music seriously. And then being unfortunately ill.. it’s probably for the best. She should probably taken acting seriously. I think she’ll shine there.

    These microwave pop starlets are so weak. Good riddance…someone with actual talent, hunger, and drive will fill the void. If only we could get some of these other Instagram hos to quit too.

    Lol girl you can’t sing. She’s one of those people who started out acting and only started singing because “might as well”. It’s not true artistry or talent, it’s clearly something she does simply because she can. Why should anybody take her seriously? All things considered, she should be happy she’s gotten to where she is with no singing ability whatsoever.

    Urgh, her white privileged showing. Imagine being white making millions filling arenas with millions of fans and followers talking about not being taken seriously on the cover of VOGUE! Tinashe is not being taking seriously and she has more music talent in her left foot than Selena. Yet what’s her platform to complain? Insta live and not effing vogue.

    I’m so tired of these new generation of singers! One ranting about the Grammys while make trash music and now her talking this stupid ish. Maybe you just not cut out for this business and you should just do something else. Instead of complaining, there are many others who would gladly take her spot! GTFOH SELENARRRR

    What does it even mean, being taken seriously ? Is she doing it for the big heads of the industry ?
    Fu<k that, do what you love, you get to live off of your passion, that’s a luxury. Don’t be such a drama queen.

    girl…. she is so desperate that she has to blackmail her toxic fans into properly buying her music. I have zero empathy in my body for this plastic fake ass doll
