Selena Gomez Is Taking Some “Me” Time

Selena Gomez Arrives In Paris

After traveling all over the world the last couple of months, Selena Gomez is taking a BREAK. Now, I don’t know what the deal is per se, but I do know that she’s struggled with Lupus before and often mistakes it for LEUKEMIA. So yeah, give her a break.

“As many of you know, around a year ago I revealed that I have lupus, an illness that can affect people in different ways,” the singer and actress, 24, tells PEOPLE exclusively in a statement. “I’ve discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges.”

“I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off. Thank you to all my fans for your support. You know how special you are to me, but I need to face this head on to ensure I am doing everything possible to be my best. I know I am not alone by sharing this, I hope others will be encouraged to address their own issues,” she continues.

AND STOP WHAT YOU’RE THINKING RIGHT THIS MINUTE. That is, everyone wants you to know that no, she’s not going to rehab. Okay? No rehab. Just chill dealing with lupus vacay, okay? Okay.

A source close to Gomez tells PEOPLE the break is “absolutely not related to alcohol or substance abuse” and was prompted after she “hadn’t felt like herself” over the last couple of months.

“She decided to clear her calendar for the year in order to have this be her priority for future happiness and didn’t want to leave any promoters at bay,” says the source. “She feels relieved that she can now make more sense of why she was feeling the way she was and is optimistic about the future.”

I mean, she did have to have mild chemotherapy for Lupus, and while I’m no doctor that seems serious enough to warrant a vacation. But also as a non-doctor, I would recommend Selena lay off the social media while she’s resting. That sh*t’s a STRESSER.

Justin Bieber And Selena Gomez Got Into An Instagram Fight This Weekend

Justin Bieber Wants To Make Things Right With Selena Gomez

Oh lordy.

This whole thing is a lot of ridiculous back-and-forth, so let’s just get to it: Justin Bieber has been on vacation and on tour with a 17-year-old “model” named Sofia Richie, as in, Lionel Richie’s daughter and Nicole Richie’s half-sister. Yeah, clearly she has very strict parenting in place. ANYHOWS, the two have been living it up, posting photos, and what have you and some sore Beliebers were not happy about it.

So Justin posted this message: “I’m gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don’t stop the hate this is getting out of hand. If you guys are really fans you wouldn’t be so mean to people that I like.” This caused some backlash and the trending of a #RIPBeliebers on twitter. But the  REAL DRAMZ when Selena Gomez decided to comment on the same photos that Bieber had posted his threat to privatize his account. Selena wrote:

“Funny how the ones that cheated multiple times, are pointing the finger at the ones that were forgiving and supportive, no wonder fans are mad. Sad. All Love.

If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol – it should be special between you two only. Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you and supported you before any one ever did.”

Of course Selena then deleted those comments, but only after everyone saw them. Bieber then responded (without mentioning Selena directly) by writing: “It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love.” And then he wrote: “I’m not one for anyone receiving hate. Hope u all can be kind to my friends and each other. And yes I love my Believers.”

UGH. So much immaturity. When do all the Beliebers grow up, and get jobs, and stop CARING? I’m also lumping Selena into this thought. Because…she has better things to do.

Selena Gomez Is Having Her Quarter-Life Crisis.

Screen Shot 2016-07-25 at 11.36.39 AM

Girl is doing some serious SOUL-SEARCHING.

Selena Gomez had her 24th birthday Saturday on which  she sent out two tweets. One asked her friends to make a donation to lupus for her birthday and the other which was a clip of her singing an updated version of her song Kill Em With Kindness. The next day, she performed her first show of the international leg of her Rival tour in Jakarta, and got emotional onstage when she talked about the world. Following the concert, she posted this to her Instagram:

The caption was,”not being negative about anything I’ve done. I’m grateful for every single moment I get here -Indonesia you were LOUD and clearly inspiring. Love you so much.”

Realizing she sounded like a big ‘ol downer, Selena posted a slightly more positive picture of herself with her audience in which she calls them “Beautiful.”

I wonder what this is all about- if it’s her not feeling like she’s performing at her best, or if it’s about politics or just not feeling well with her Lupus. Or maybe it has something to do with backlash at her outspoken defense of Taylor when everything blew up between her and the Kardashian-West Camp. Whatever it is- girl’s got a lot of living to be done and has had a pretty awesome life thus far. This is life, Selly. LIVE IT.

Selena Gomez Is The Most Followed Person On Instagram

Screen Shot 2016-07-14 at 1.33.40 PM

Selena Gomez beat out her BFF Taylor Swift for the most followed person on Instagram!

That’s something she can fall back on after her Revival tour, right? The singer, who has 89 million followers, talked to the Hollywood Reporter about her “achievement:”

“It comes in a moment when I capture something happening, and I go, ‘Oh, that would be great for Instagram. I should post it.’ I know it’s boring, but that’s genuinely what I do. It wasn’t my goal to be the most followed person,” demurs Gomez, who very much enjoys the app: “It’s my favorite social platform.”

“I’m not sure there’s a method to my madness,” admits Gomez, who shares a few tips, like: If a caption isn’t coming to you, use emoji and “let it be.”

“I try to find a good balance of just being 100 percent myself and knowing when to post a really good selfie with good lighting,” says Gomez. But a recent photo, of her riding a shopping cart inside a market in Canada, had some fans wondering just how “real” her ‘grams are. The backstory: Her tour photographer tagged along on the excursion. “I’ve created this bond with him, so it’s super organic when he takes photos,” says Gomez. “We were in the grocery store, all shopping for the bus, and I always eat when I shop. I remember one of the comments said, ‘I cannot believe she rented out the grocery store for a photo shoot,’ and I died laughing. I was like, ‘Well, I didn’t.’ ”

Well, there’s something to be said for eating while shopping, but the rest feels a little contrived. You KNOW her photographer is doing a lot of heavy lifting, right? I hope the dude gets PAID.
