Are there any Selena Gomez fans in the house? Are you one of her passionate fans who has memorized every lyric to every song, and you adore the singer, being their walking Wikipedia? If you have been nodding yes to all the questions so far, then we have a special treat in store for you – an opportunity to earn the title “Rare fan of Selena Gomez.” Keep reading to know more.
Selena Gomez is a bona fide beauty, both on the outside and inside, from her heart and soul. Despite her personal challenges, she has made herself shine in every avenue she has dared down. From procuring fame as a Disney child star, she triumphantly made her debut as a pop sensation delivering unforgettable music albums, delved into acting and production ventures, launched her makeup line, Rare Beauty, and became a mental health activist while promoting self-love and inspiring millions of women worldwide, making them feel Rare. It takes a lot of gut, passion, and tenacity to be successful in everything you venture into.
Selena consistently mesmerized us with her talent, artistry, and hypnotic beauty, whether it is in photoshoots, street styling, concert outfits, or even casual wear. She is one of those musicians who has a song for every mood and for everyone. So whether you lean more toward an exuberant banger that will get you grooving right away, a love ballad to stir up your feelings, a self-love anthem, or a sorrowful bop, you will find your next favorite song somewhere in her discography!
“I don’t have it all/ I’m not claiming to. I know that I’m special, yeah!
And I’ll bet there’s somebody else out there,
To tell me I’m rare/ To make me feel rare”
“It feels like you don’t care/ why don’t you recognize I’m so rare?” Who said we don’t, Selena? We know you are so rare, and so are your fans aka Selenators, and our unwavering love for you. Selena Gomez’s third studio album, Rare, was a steady and satisfying pop record that exuded confidence and delved deeper into both lyrical and sonic realms. It is her most cohesive album to date, exploring the themes of self-love, grief, love strikes, tenderness, and soul-searching, adorned with some somber, melancholic lyrics coated with overwhelmingly buoyant beats, proclaiming autonomy, resilience, and growth.
Pop music’s well-worn theme of dancing through the pain with sugar-coated melodies is a tried-and-tested success route, but the lyrics and sentiments always hold special meaning for us. “I needed to hate you to love me, yeah/ I needed to lose you to love me,” she waves goodbye to an ex-lover who does not respect her worth with the lead single, ‘Lose You to Love Me.’ The song explores the ways how the 30-year-old-singer lost herself in a toxic relationship and sincerely vows to never make the same mistake again, portraying her excruciating introspection that touched a nerve.
Mental health is personal for me. Figuring out how to manage my own mental health hasn’t always been easy, but it’s something I am constantly working on and I hope I can help others work on, too.
Selena Gomez’s personal message on her Rare beauty website
Throughout the album, Gomez reflects on various aspects of her dysfunctional relationships marred by distrust or self-destructive anxiety spirals. But gladly, her perspective is more thankful than regretful, as if to suggest that everything in life is a lesson worth learning, but she has finally broken free from the vicious shackles and turned a page, stepping into a new phase of her life.
