Selena Gomez just dropped a huge revelation about the status of her mental health during a time when many of her fans probably could use the escape from the news while hunkering down and waiting out the coronavirus pandemic.
In the live chat, which was broadcast to some 180,000 viewers, the close pals, both 27, touched on many subjects and when the topic of mental health reared its head, Gomez jumped right in, describing to Cyrus a trip she took to a psychiatric hospital outside of Boston, where Gomez said she made her discovery.
“Recently, I went to one of the best mental hospitals in America, McLean Hospital, and I discussed that after years of going through a lot of different things, I realized that I was bipolar,” Gomez recalled as seen in a video shared by a fan account. “And so when I got to know more information, it actually helps me. It doesn’t scare me once I know it.”
“I think people get scared of that, right?” she continued. “They’re like, ‘Oh!’ And I’ve seen it, I’ve seen some of it even in my own family, where I’m like, ‘What’s going on?’ I’m from Texas. It’s just not known to talk about mental health. You got to seem cool. And then I see anger built up in children and teenagers or whatever young adults because they are wanting that so badly. I just feel like when I finally said what I was going to say, I wanted to know everything about it. And it took the fear away.”
