Los Angeles – Singer Selena Gomez has said people twisted her mental health story which made her angry. According to eonline.com Selena opened up about going public with her mental health struggles and said: “For me, I had to give up social media so I would go through these periods when I wouldn’t (use my accounts). But I got so angry that my story was twisted into so many different things. The first time I posted (again), I was like, ‘I claim my own story, so if you don’t hear it from me, then it’s not true’. Did I go and get help? Yes I did. But I’m not ashamed. I feel better and I feel like I can understand a lot of things now. I think that was my moment when I knew (nobody) was going to take my story away from me. And I really do believe that I made the circle, if you will, of making the media look like s**t if they’re making fun of someone who has mental health issues.” In April this year, Selena joined pop star Miley Cyrus in an Instagram Live and shared that she is bipolar. She has also said that she wants to use her voice to raise awareness about the illness.
