The Same Old Love hitmaker is also getting super-real about her decision to cancel her Revival tour and booking into a psychiatric facility in Tennessee in her cover interview.

When talking about why she cancelled her tour - which still had more than 30 shows to go – off, Selena tells Vogue’s Rob Haskell: “Tours are a really lonely place for me.

“My self-esteem was shot. I was depressed, anxious. I started to have panic attacks right before getting onstage, or right after leaving the stage. Basically I felt I wasn’t good enough, wasn’t capable.”


After hitting an ultimate low, Selena disappeared to Tennessee, where she stayed for 90 days. Of her experience and recovery she said: “You have no idea how incredible it felt to just be with six girls, real people who couldn’t give two shits about who I was, who were fighting for their lives.

“It was one of the hardest things I’ve done, but it was the best thing I’ve done.”
