Did she step back into the spotlight too soon?
As Star readers know, Selena announced she was checking herself into rehab in September to battle depression and other emotional issues. During treatment, she was seen at one point stepping outside the facility for a smoke break, wearing a bandage on her hand, and showing major weight loss.
The 24-year-old singer was released just in time for the 2016 American Music Awards, where she arrived on the red carpet, alerting fans she was ready to step back into the spotlight. But during her acceptance speech for Pop/Rock Female Artist of the Year, she revealed why she had to force herself to get help.
“In 2014, this stage was actually the first time that I was authentically 100 percent honest with you,” she said on stage. “I think it’s safe to say that a lot of you know a lot of my life whether I liked it or not and I had to stop. Because I had everything, and I was absolutely broken. And I kept it together and I swore I would never let you down, but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down.”
Despite her big return, is the singer still struggling to recoup after rehab?
