When Selena Gomez Posed Nude For Revival

Selena Gomez has become known for making daring moves, and now she has taken the plunge once again by revealing that she posed nude for her second album when she was 24. She echoed loud that:

I actually did an album cover and I was really ashamed after I did it. I had to work through those feelings because I realized it was attached to something deep that was going on. And it was a choice that I wasn’t necessarily happy that I made, but I think that I’ve done my best, at least I try to be myself.

I felt like it was very difficult for people to take me seriously. I have slowly pushed through that. And I’m really glad, but it was very frustrating. I felt like a joke, you know?

This Is How The Twitter Reacted

With that being said, the entire point of Gomez in this regard was – some female singers and actresses are forced to follow the trends and instructions for their music videos or cover images. This puts pressure on these artists to try new things though they may not see it as a strength.
