Selena Gomez Posts Cryptic Instagram About Sharing "The Truth" & It Might Come Out In Through A New Single — PHOTO
Selena Gomez wants to claim her own name. She illustrated that much with a new Instagram post that is fueling speculation among her followers. Along with capturing an artistic snap of the cut-out phrase "I want to claim my own name" next to flowers, vases, and a drinking glass, Gomez shared a lengthy caption that seemed somewhat cryptic. Selena Gomez said she wants to share her "truth" with the world. She wrote,
Sometimes I get frustrated when I hear lies about who I am. The Internet is meant to keep you "updated" but it just takes old news and freezes it like it's now. You have watched me in pain and I've owned up to it through my music and actions. I grew up with you. I am beyond excited to show you the next chapter, the TRUTH. I've been keeping so many secrets...I'm reborn in every moment so who knows what I'll become...As long as I'm happy with me. #strongisbeautiful #healthyperspectiveonthemfools
Whoa! The 22-year-old obviously has a lot of thoughts she needs to get off her chest. While we can see she is unsatisfied with different aspects of the press and Internet culture, it is not entirely clear what she means by "the truth" or the "next chapter." Luckily for us all, we might get an answer sooner rather than later. And the answer could potentially be in the form of a song, if speculation is correct.
According to E! News, Gomez's manager responded to a fan who asked on Instagram, "Sorry for asking again. Some Selenators ask if Selena's new single will come out before August or July? I know we have to stay tuned but is there no little hint for us?" Her manager reportedly responded, "Soon. You will have a good summer!" Now, it is not yet confirmed what specific topic a new song might address, but if this really will be the first chapter of her "truth," there are so many possibilities of what she could be sharing.
Some folks decided it would be a good idea to judge Gomez harshly for her figure earlier this year. As can be seen by this body positive Instagram post, they could not have been more wrong. Considering the fact that the body shaming happened recently and also the fact that she used the hashtags "#strongisbeautiful" and "#healthyperspectiveonthemfools" in the post, it would be both timely and fantastic for her to share this part of her story.
Gomez's personal relationships (especially with Justin Bieber and Zedd) have been constant fodder for media speculation. There are many who are quick to judge her for those who she is involved with and offer unsolicited advice. This could be a fantastic chance for her to set the record straight on her love life and tell her story on her terms.
Gomez sadly endured a period of health and wellness struggles, particularly in late 2013 and early 2014. It was revealed that she had checked herself into a treatment facility, but her rep said it was not for any type of substance abuse. Since then, Gomez has heavily emphasized the importance of happiness, in both Instagram posts and in interviews. It would be awesome to hear more about her inspiration to getting there.
As can be seen in the post's caption, she does appear to be criticizing the modern day news cycle, particularly in regard to how the various outlets portray her. It would be great to hear a response right from the source!
Of course, we'll have to wait and see what happens. And with Instagram posts like this one, it's hard to not get impatient!
