Selena Gomez and Rehab: Too Much Too Soon for Young Hollywood?Joanna Mazewski
This time around it’s a bit more shocking, as we wouldn’t have expected former Disney star Selena Gomez to be making the rehab headlines. The 21-year-old Texan beauty reportedly spent two weeks at a rehab facility citing “exhaustion.”
Sources close to the actress and singer say that Selena’s rehab stint has nothing to do with substance abuse. Instead they cited the fact that she’s been working nonstop in the entertainment business for over six years.
Coincidentally, Selena was in rehab during the same time her on-again, off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber got arrested in Miami for drag-racing in a private residential neighborhood.
With so many young stars entering rehab facilities for so many different reasons, one can only wonder: Is it too much, too soon for young Hollywood? There’s no doubt that the fame, the money, the hectic tour schedules, and the other demands of being a young star in the spotlight can take a toll on just about anyone.
And with so many young stars already having gone through so much before their 30th birthday namely Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Amanda Bynes, and Zac Efron life can spin out of control if you don’t have the right support system to help you take a step back before the chaos pulls you in.
Luckily for Selena, she has the right people and a caring family around her that are helping her make the right decisions concerning her career and her health. Kudos to her for being a great role model for both her young fans and the rest of Hollywood, too.
