Selena Gomez Breaks Down Discussing Her Efforts To Stop Human Trafficking With Charity A21
The Wolves singer has opened up about her wanting to help those in need.
Selena Gomez gets candid about her volunteer work during a chat with E! News, and talks about her need to help those who are hurt by human trafficking.
The 'Wolves' singer got real about her volunteer work with A21, a charity which aims to abolish human trafficking.
"I think that it's easy for someone in my position to maybe be associated with an organization because they feel it would be great, they can contribute dollar-wise. None of that is wrong," she explained to E! News' Jason Kennedy.
She went on to add: “I think for me, I've been wanting something that I felt like I could contribute most of my time to, because I love what I do, but I feel a little selfish sometimes and I have always said that."
And Selena made a valid point, as she broached how her fame enables her to make a bigger difference, and allows her to “actually share what this subject is," even though "it's something people don't want to discuss."
Human trafficking is a cause really close to Selena’s heart, and the hearts of her friends, as they realise the subject matter is “very, very serious.”
“I take it extremely serious and my friends are heavily involved with me because it's not something happening a million miles away. It's actually happening here,” Selena went on to say.
And it’s not all talk either, as Selena recently shared pictures of a trip she took in order to meet, and better empathise with, victims of human trafficking.
The star apparently started to get emotional during her interview as she said: “I want them to be seen, you know, so I want to be able to communicate that to them that they are beautiful and I will do everything I can to get their story out."
Her recent experiences have inspired her new music, which she said she’s intentionally taking her time with.
We may potentially be hearing a much more mature sound from her next releases, that discusses all of her recent eye-opening volunteer work.
