Selena Gomez has just gotten real about Hollywood. 

She has opened up about her struggles with fame and how it and social media has played a huge role in affecting her relationships and friendships. 

Last year, Selena went on a social media hiatus, and she took a break from Instagram and Twitter. At the time of the detox, she said 'I think it’s safe to say that most of you know a lot of my life, whether I liked it or not, I had to stop.'

Speaking to Business of Fashion, Selena has revealed that it has been a hard journey. 

'It’s a lonely journey to really figure out where all this stuff is coming from. And to detach from it. It becomes an addiction, it becomes a habit, retraining your mind to not go to these negative places when you say something wrong, do something wrong, when you wear a certain thing or represent a certain culture. But it is lonely, I had to lose a lot of people in my life to get there.'

Selena has added that despite being a worldwide star, she feels like she has no friends. 

'You have to figure out the people that are in your circle. I feel like I know everybody but have no friends. I have like three good friends that I can tell everything to, but I know everyone. I go anywhere and I’m like, ‘Hey guys, how’s it going?’ And it feels great to be connected to people, but having boundaries is so important. You have to have those few people that respect you, want the best for you and you want the best for them. It sounds cheesy, but it’s hard.'
