Now she has also been confirmed to have bipolar disorder, which is characterised by periods of extreme mood swings, from abnormal highs to extreme lows, including clinical depression.
Singer Selena Gomez opened up about her bipolar disorder diagnosis.
Selena revealed that she was diagnosed after visiting McLean Hospital, one of the best mental health institutions in the United States.
During the candid chat about mental health, Selena said she was diagnosed after a visit to McLean Hospital, a psychiatric facility and neuroscience research center in MA. I discussed that, after years of going through a lot of different things, I realized that I was bipolar.
After the announcement, fans took to Twitter to praise Selena for opening up about her mental health and raising awareness about bipolar disorder and other issues.
The star, who has appeared in films such as Spring Breakers, said the diagnosis had left her feeling "equal parts terrified and relieved". I believe in that and talking about where you are. For her latest Disney reunion, Miley welcomed SelenaGomez to the talk show on Friday (April 3), where they chatted about tending to their mental health during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Selena went on to adds that while growing up in Texas, she rarely heard anyone speak openly about their struggles with mental health. And then I see anger built up in children and teenagers or whatever young adults because they are wanting that so badly. "This can be a time to be gentle with ourselves, taking a break from all the noise, and being outside and just breathing in air", she said. "If you're amusing enough and cool enough and confident, that's what will make you feel attractive". "I think people get scared of that". She has a large following on social media, and was at one time the most followed individual on Instagram, before being surpassed by athlete Cristiano Ronaldo.
"I go to therapy", Gomez said.
"I've had really bad anxiety and depression in my life and a lot of that stemmed from the way I look", Cyrus told ELLE UK in 2015.
