Selena Gomez has revealed that she may have just one more album left in her.
Despite her success in the music industry, the “Only Murders in the Building” actress confessed that if she had to choose between acting and music, she would prioritize acting and potentially retire from music altogether.
Speaking on the ‘SmartLess’ podcast, she began: “I started having a lot of fun with music and then touring was really fun. But I was doing my TV show at the same time [‘Wizards of Waverly Place’] and I just found it really fun so I just kept going but the older I get, the more I’m kind of like, I would like to find something to just settle on.”
Selena, who experienced burnout at a young age, explained that she never planned on becoming a singer.
It was only after recording the theme song for “Wizards of Waverly Place” that Disney packaged her as a multi-talented artist.
She recalled: “I went to a mental institute and cancelled one of my tours.
“It just got to me because I love working and it distracts me from bad things.”
Suggesting she might quit music after one last record, she continued: “I do feel like I have one more album in me but I would probably choose acting.”
When it was suggested that she could still do both careers, she replied: “You’re right, but I am going to want to chill because I’m tired.”
As the founder of Rare Beauty, she has found fulfillment in her various ventures.
She said: “Disney is, it’s safe to say, a machine and, in a way, forcefully requires that I know how to sing so I could sing the theme song [of a show]. They know how to package someone and make it a whole triple-threat thing.
“I wanted to be an actress, I never really intended on being a singer full-time but apparently that hobby turned into something else.
“I don’t think I’m the best singer but I do know how to tell stories and I love being able to make songs.”
To date, Selena has released three solo albums and three records as Selena Gomez and the Scene.
