Selena Gomez took a brief break from social media after her 28th birthday last week. But she returned to send a heartfelt message to her fans and explained the reason why she hasn’t been active.
The singer shared a video on her social media platform with the caption ‘a message from me’ and added a heart emoji. She posted it on a Wednesday evening and started sharing how she has been inactive.
Selena said she wanted to take some time to do a quick message because she hasn’t been active lately. She expressed to her fans how much she loves and misses them. The singer also mentions that there are few exciting things that are coming up.
She explained why she hasn’t been posting much lately. Selena said with everything that is going on, she felt it will be insensitive to post things that might be joyful. The actress said it was hard for her to do that. She assured her fans that she has been taking time to learn about everything that is going on. However, the singer says she continues to make it her priority.
Selena said she wants to let her fans know that she will be more involved and send love. She also promised to show some of her personal stuff that she has been doing. The actress thanks her fans for their support throughout all this time. ‘But, thank you for being here, and thank you for supporting me always and I will talk to you soon,’ Gomez concluded.
The actress recently turned 28 on Wednesday. She announced that her beauty brand, Rare Beauty, will help connect under-served communities. She is referring to access to mental health services in these communities.
Selena’s Contribution to Mental Health Services
Prior to launching her beauty line, Selena has decided to give back in the most important way. Selena revealed that Rare Beauty had launched the Rare Impact Fund. This fund will collect $100 million over the next ten years. Not just that, this money will be used to help fill the gaps in mental health services.
She revealed that from the first product sale onward, one percent of all sales will be directed to the fund. Also, funds raised from partners will be dedicated to the Rare Impact Fund. The Impact Fund aims to be the largest known funds in support of mental health.
Selena expressed her gratitude towards her team for helping her make the Rare Impact Fund in a statement. She said since she started the brand they wanted to find a way to give back to our community. The singer said she wanted to support people who needed access to mental health services. It has a big part to play in her life.
Selena explained that Rare Beauty is focused on helping people feel more connected to one another and less alone in the world. Talking about the fund, she said it will make a direct impact on many lives and make a difference in the world. She further added, “I’m proud of the work we’ve begun to do with our partners to offer these services to anyone who needs support.”
Selena’s fans are ecstatic after hearing this announcement and came to her support. “This is the next-level status on how to use your platform for the greater good,” one follower commented. Another wrote, “You have proven time and time again that you all care and are fighting for what matters! This is so important, and what a great message to share on Selena’s birthday. Thank you!”
