Pop sensation Selena Gomez might be smashing her current Revival world tour but unfortunately that doesn’t mean the star is feeling totally herself.
Last night the singer got real with fans at her Indonesian concert and later used Instagram to share her emotions with the world in a heartfelt post.
According to Billboard, Selena appeared to get a little teary on-stage as she explained to her audience why the song Kill Em With Kindness is so important to her. She said: “I get really frustrated. I get stupid sometimes.”
“I say things that I don’t mean, or that come out wrong just because I care so badly. But the thing is, at the end of the day, no war in anger was ever won.”
“I do know that deep down in my heart that I have to believe that we can love each other and always be kind no matter what it takes in us.”
While it’s not totally clear what sparked the star’s emotional presence, she later took to Instagram to say she “felt extremely unauthentic, unconnected to both myself and my music”.

Selena – who has just turned 24 – wrote: “I've never really felt like my materials, wardrobe or a video could define me. I act on a moment and fear something that hasn't happened.”
“I'm stagnant, I stay still and don't just sit with myself first and ask 'is this where I am, whole heartedly?'”
“I've always told the truth. I'm always true to my word, I've shown who I am but I need to rethink some areas of my life creatively and personally. had to get that out."
The post was captioned: “not being negative about anything I've done. I'm grateful for every single moment I get here – Indonesia you were LOUD and clearly inspiring. Love you so much.”
The Good For You singer has received an abundance of support from fans since the post first appeared with one writing: “I know you'll probably never read this but i, and all selenators, love you so much and will always be here for you no matter what. Please stay strong and don't loose that smile who stays us alive (sic).”
And another said: “Thank u for sharing. I think we all have those inauthentic moments. Your authenticity will rise above again. Sometimes we just slip into an inauthentic space (sic).”
