Selena Gomez was seen in Malibu on Tuesday wearing comfortable sweatpants and a sweatshirt while grocery shopping. The 29-year-old musician opted for a casual look, pairing her fuzzy slip-on shoes with her outfit. Just days prior, she visited the White House to discuss mental health. Her dark hair was styled into a loose bun, and she went makeup-free for the outing. She donned a large black sweater with a hoodie and slouchy grey sweatpants featuring writing on one leg. Completing the look, she wore a black leather crossbody purse with gold hardware. Her footwear choice showcased a platform and also revealed her black pedicure. She carried her groceries in a bag with both hands to her car in the coastal area.
The vocalist made a noteworthy appearance at the White House in Washington, DC, last week. Her purpose for visiting was to attend the Mental Health Youth Action Forum and advance her advocacy for mental health. The forum united promising young leaders who are shaping groundbreaking strategies to support mental health in America.
Selena, who established the Rare Impact Fund nonprofit, openly shared her struggles with anxiety and bipolar disorder, emphasizing that “acknowledging the issue makes it less overwhelming.”
According to her, understanding her mental state brought her a sense of liberation and acceptance. This proves that discussing mental health should be normalized and not be considered taboo. She further expressed her desire for mental health services to be accessible to everyone, regardless of their background. She also urged companies and individuals to take steps towards eliminating the stigma surrounding mental health and increasing resources and access to programs for young people.
