Selena Gomez has confessed to battling depression in the early days of coronavirus lockdown, saying she was into “a bit of a depression.”
According to her, she initially had trouble adapting to spending so much time indoors, as she isolated with her grandparents and friends in Los Angeles but later found new ways to get creative and was able to turn her mood around.
In an Instagram chat with Dr. Vivek Murthy, who served as surgeon general under U.S. President Barack Obama, Selena said “In the beginning, I couldn’t deal with it that well. I kind of went into a bit of a depression. And then I started going into a place where I was really writing and being active. I guess it (lockdown) just forced me to have that time.”
“My job is a lot of travel, connecting with people, making people happy, and that makes me happy, so it has been a struggle,” she added.
