Selena Gomez celebrates her 27th birthday today, and she isn’t doing it alongside any secret boyfriend. E! got an update on how her life is going after her appearance as a maid of honor in her cousin Priscilla DeLeon’s wedding on Friday. While Gomez has been relatively quiet publicly, in private, she’s doing great and is self-focused, a source explained.
“Selena is doing amazing,” a source told the outlet. “She has completely transformed her health and lifestyle. She has been making strides and improvements with her lupus and have had less flare-ups and symptoms.”
Gomez is also not dating anyone, the source said, but is “open to start putting herself out there again. She is taking everything day by day and focusing on herself and her music.”
The source added that Gomez has been working a lot on new music (the new album will be out in 2020 now) and building her relationships with friends and family. “Selena has been spending a lot of time with her family and friends, being low-key,” the source explained. “She has also been writing new music in the studio and hoping to release something early next year. She is in a much better headspace and is really happy right now.”
Gomez spoke earlier this year about how life-saving her friendships have been for her. My friends, without a doubt, have saved my life in multiple situations,”she said while being interviewed on Coach’s Dream It Real podcast this spring. “I mean that. Because they’re honest, they’re loving, they unconditionally love, they never judge, and they give me sound advice. And all my friends are different: one’s in real estate, one works in social media, one works in foundations. It’s just great. We’re all so different and we love each other.”
