She really does not need it.
Fans are shocked: Selena Gomez says she'd be totally fine if her fame suddenly went away. She told the journalists at the Met Gala, that she would be ok, if she lost it all. According to Selena, she feels that she is at the very beginning, and she is not afraid of losing all that fame. As her mother says, glory and fans are just privileges of her path, so singing is not how Selena defines herself.
This isn't the first time Selena has talked about her emotions on her life of celebrity. Back in March, she took it a step further when she told Vogue she was basically counting down to the day she wasn't famous.
She also added that she couldn’t wait when people forget about her.
