I’m a Selena Gomez watcher. We rarely have reason to talk about her since she (finally) broke up with Justin Bieber (hopefully for the last time) earlier this year. I did notice with a raised eyebrow that she dropped an F-bomb a few weeks ago at one of the Jingle Balls. She was having sound issues and lost her temper. I tried not to clutch my nonexistent pearls over the incident. It’s just that Selena is very aware of her image as a good girl, so the fact that she cursed onstage is notable.
Anyway, there’s a bit of buzz going on because Selena just cancelled the last leg of her current tour. The 13 dates were to kick off in Perth, Australia and weren’t even scheduled to start until February. Hollywood Life says Selena is suffering from exhaustion and is “very, very tired.” Radar Online has an even more disturbing explanation from a so-called Selena insider:
“Dealing with her breakup from Justin has still been affecting her and she’s been in a bit of a bad place recently,” the insider revealed.
“Her family stepped in and basically advised her to either go to therapy or stay with them so they could watch over her. Her team agreed that family time would be best.”
Gomez was slated to kick off a 13-concert tour leg on Feb. 1 in Perth, Australia, but issued a statement on Dec. 20 announcing she was canceling it.
“My fans are so important to me and I would never want to disappoint them,” the statement said. “But it has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years of putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be. To my fans, I sincerely apologize and I hope you guys know how much each and every one of you mean to me.”
Along with her family, the insider tells Radar good friend and fellow musician Taylor Swift will play an important role in Gomez’s effort to be her best. “Selena has plans to hang out a lot in the coming weeks with close friends like Taylor Swift,” the source said. “Taylor has been a really good support system for Selena in recent weeks.”

Ugh, I hope Selena didn’t cancel her tour because of the ongoing emotional fallout over her relationship with Bieber. If anything, I’d think she’s be embarrassed to have ever been associated with him. I guess it would be hard on anyone to see an ex-boyfriend rebound at a Brazilian brothel. That probably makes her feel like crap, but Bieber’s the one who should be embarrassed (even though he’s clearly not). Oh, check out Santa Bieber from the douchey one’s Instagram:
For what it’s worth, Selena did Instagram this photo on Sunday. She’s holding her baby sister, Gracie, with the following caption: “I’m the happiest I’ve been in a while..” I’m also including some photos of Selena’s new Madame Tussauds wax statue in the gallery. They got her face completely wrong.
