Selena Gomez cancels tour dates for me time

Selena Gomez needs a moment - in fact, make that several.

In a statement on Friday, the 21-year-old singer/actress said that she's canceling upcoming concert dates in Australia in order to take some personal time.

“My fans are so important to me and I would never want to disappoint them. But it has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years of putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be," Gomez said.

The singer's been on her "Stars Dance" trek since August, and announced her intent to take the tour to Australia in November. The five-date stretch included stops in Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. Those who purchased tickets to those performances will be refunded at their point of purchase.

"To my fans, I sincerely apologize and I hope you guys know how much each and every one of you mean to me," Gomez added in her statement.

    What I stated above was totally true and correct. Selena only came back to so Bieber, search google for the photos of them hugging each other today.

    She is a liar, and so is Bieber.

      It's just too crazy in here, man. Makes me feel like I did back in Memphis when I was takin' too many pills. That dating spam is awful. And some guy named twit-something keeps dumping on some girl named Sarah. This has gotten to be too weird, man. I'm outta here!

    The music industry died when the record companies began catering to pre-teen and teen girls and men of questionable gender.

    Didn't she just have a Milli Vanilli moment on stage a couple of weeks ago? Just don't tour or perform live if you can't really sing. Take what you can get from video buzz. Why is that so hard to understand?

    She is only taking time off due to Bieber claiming he is retiring. I guarantee it. They both probably worked this scheme out together.

    She wants to spend time with him, and everything she has told the public about their relationship has been a lie.

      Did you get that from a Teen Beat gossip column?

      Seer, I was 100% correct in what I said. I didn't get it from any website, it was my own common sense. In fact I was the only one posting it. Search google today and you will see a photo Bieber posted of him and Selena hugging.

      They are both liars.

  16. Know it all

    Big mistake. Her allure is fading fast. She will age and gravity will conquer her perkiness. The songs she once could sing will be peddled to a more marketable youngster. She needs to make money now! "Gotta make hay while the sun is shining," as my Grandpa used to say. She lacks the rigor and entrepreneurial spirit of a real American.

    Such a cute girl. I loved "Wizards". Maybe she shouldn't hang with Taylor Swift so much. Hope she gets better.
