Selena Gomez attended the first annual We Day California event at the Oracle Arena on Wednesday in Oakland, California, and the 21-year-old singer/actress opened up to the crowd about her recent stay in rehab.
“I am not an activist," she began. "I haven’t changed the world or led a campaign. I’m here to just tell you my path so that you can hopefully take something away from it because I don’t like being honest with press and interviews. I like being honest with you directly."
“I’m surrounded by people who are supposed to guide me and some of them have and others haven’t,” she continued. “They pressure me, [saying] ‘You gotta be sexy, you gotta be cute, you gotta be nice, you gotta be all these things.’ You can all relate. You all have pressure that you have to deal with every day — with school, with work, with friends, with parents, with family. They tell me what to wear, how to look, what I should say, how I should be. Until recently, I had given into that pressure, I lost sight of who I was. I listened to opinions of people and I tried to change who I am because I thought others would accept me for it. And I realized I don’t know how to be anything but myself.” Check out her full speech in the clip above!
Selena also added the Instagram pic below with Orlando Bloom and Seth Rogen ... glad to see she's surrounding herself with good people! So does this mean she's done with Bieber? And was that report of her hard partying just a wild night blown out of proportion?
