After Selena Gomez canceled her ‘Stars Dance’ tour to ‘spend time on [herself]’, she’s staying true to her word. In this new pic from Selena’s Instagram, it’s clear that the 21-year-old singer has plenty of friends around her to help her through her struggles with lupus.
Selena Gomez announced Dec. 19 that she would be canceling the Australian leg of her Stars Dance world tour to “spend time on [herself] in order to be the best person [she] can be.” Since then, we’ve seen her hanging out with her baby sister, with BFFs Taylor Swift and Demi Lovato, and on Dec. 29, Selena posted another Instagram of her hanging out with more friends!

It’s clear Selena has a strong support system around her. She’s a great girl, after all, and now that she actually has the time to hang out with friends, she is taking full advantage.
Especially important for her right now is to focus on her health, since a lack of sleep can exacerbate symptoms of the disease — and there’s nothing like a world tour to make a person behind on their sleep!

While Selena wanted to keep her struggles private so as not to “affect people’s opinions of her and what she’s capable of,” now that the news is out it may be for the best. After all, she now has the immense support of her fanbase and her friends with whom she can be totally open.
And anybody would be exhausted mid-way through a world tour! Nobody can deny what the 21-year-old is capable of; she has accomplished more in her short life than many could ever achieve in their lifetime.
So, what do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are you glad that Selena is spending so much quality time with her friends? Do you think it’s a good thing that the secret’s out? Is she still as capable as ever? Let us know!
