However, she has also been regularly the target of criticism. In an interview with Vogue magazine, Selena Gomez said: “It’s hard to keep making music when people don’t really take you seriously. There were times when I asked myself: ‘ What is my goal? Why do I keep doing this? ” Lose You to Love Me was for me the best song I have ever released and for some people it was not enough yet. “
As she prepares to release her new album, Selena Gomez said she was grateful to her fans. “I think there are a lot of people who love my music and for that I’m grateful and I keep going, but I think next time I do an album it will be different. I want to give myself one last chance before perhaps stopping the music, ”revealed the star.

I really like to write, to create and create melodies and grow. I felt that Rare was my chance to say everything I wanted to say (…) I wanted every word to count and you could feel it physically. “
