Casual, endearing and genuine, Selena Gomez is loved world over for more than just her singing and acting prowess, and of course, that gorgeous face. The singer’s just been signed on as the brand ambassador of Coach, and she’s ending the year with a bang as she snags the top 5 spots of the 10 most-liked Instagram posts in 2016.
It wasn’t like she tried too hard either. On the contrary, she shut off from social media for three months this year! Having suffered from depression and anxiety in the middle of her Revival Tour (she looked stunning though), she took to rehab for a brief period. However, Selenators didn’t have to worry for long because the star came back with a bang.
Her recent speech at the AMA’s 2016 (where she was dressed to kill) reinstated the faith in her admirers. She said: “I kept it together and I swore I would never let you down, but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down. I’m not trying to get validation, nor do I need it anymore… If you are broken, you don’t have to stay broken“.
Selena was diagnosed with Lupus in 2013 and at the young age of 24, she inspires by bouncing back against all odds, every single time!
