Selena Gomez Cancels Australia Tour - Ticket Sales Or Rehab?

In a shocking announcement Selena Gomez canceled her Australian tour because "she needs to spend some time on myself." Yeah, that kind of statement usually portends rehab. Yeah, I used portend in a sentence. I have been waiting for that one. See what happens when someone throws away a perfectly great word of the day calendar in the trash. Sure, it was from 2012, but it is all about the words and not the days anyway.

After her most recent mini-tour of Jingle Ball dates it was becoming noticeable that she was on edge. Even before her meltdown in Los Angeles which I gave her a pass on because most performers would have done the same thing there have been louder and louder whispers that perhaps she has been drinking more than is good for her and that she might be doing things other than drinking too. I know, I know. That kind of thing would ruin her carefully crafted image of someone who is so innocent. First of all if you are around Bieber as much as she was, you know she wasn't all that innocent when it came to certain activities because the guy is a walking hot box. Second, she parties, a lot. She is just a master of staying inside like all celebrities should, especially if things are spiraling out of control.

The option that her camp might spin quietly is that ticket sales were poor in Australia. This would have to be done quietly because sales were not that bad and promoters accused of not selling enough tickets when there are ticket sales might not want to work with Selena should she decide to tour there again.

When you are doing radio concerts, odds are you aren't selling out arenas.
She looks like she's 12, that picture is a bit..unsettling.

She's been hanging out with Demi again lately. We all know Demi isn't sober. Seems kind of obvious what the problem is.

Patty said...

She is such a vanilla, manufactured singer. All her songs sound alike. Adele she most certainly is not. Stick to your basic cable and straight to syndication shows, Selena.

There is not enough alcohol to drink away the horrors of diaper pants. Poor girl probably needs PTSD therapy.

Harry Knuckles said...

Actually Bacon, and I'm gonna catch it for this, but this picture of Selena is hot as Hell, maybe the best non-bikini picture of her I have ever seen.

Henriette said...

Why must one choose? It's probably both---low ticket sales and rehab. She is just another bore who tries too hard to be edgy.

If she is an addict I'm gonna spend the rest of the day fapping to barely legal Hispanic girls and day dreaming about haivng a drug binge with her.

It is probably the ticket sales though. Eventually the Disney fans grow up and you have to produce actual hit songs.

Bacon Ranch said...

Yeah, it's not her fault she looks young. It's just creepy.

Harry Knuckles said...

No she doesn't Bacon, not to me. Selena looks young, which she is, but not like a little kid. She looks like a very pretty late teens, early 20's babe with a decent rack under a plunging neckline. Trust me when I tell you Mr. Happy is ok with this.

I knew from her tweets that she was on edge and having a real issue about something, though she never came right out and tweeted what was wrong.

If she is in rehab, I wish her the best. At least she should get credit for realizing that she has a problem (if that is the case) and deciding to do something about it. That is much, much more than anyone can say about any number of other entertainers whether they are young like her, or much, much older.

Kinda OT, but Lainey just took a shot at this post:

"This [SG taking some time off], then, isn’t necessarily a bad call. Nor does it have to portend the bad sh-t."

Tee hee! Blogger s**t is the best s**t!

auntliddy said...

Good luck sweetie.

yvettie said...

Wow she parties a lot just like every other 20 something I know. Oh so scandalous!

skimpymist said...

I went to her concert in october I think and her show was great. She danced the whole time which must be exhausting to do for every single show. Coke has to be her pick me up of choice or adderrall.

Danielle Williams said...

I heard that she got hooked on cocaine while making that beach movie. The other chicks (i can't remember who) gave her the coke to get thru the many premiers and she got hooked. I don't really feel bad for her because she knows what cocaine does to people. If she is narcissistic enough to think she could never get hooked, gues what....

How hard is it to lipsync for an hour and a half?

Kristin said...

Well-played news dump right before the holidays.

NaughtyNurse said...

No worries, guys. I'm a woman, and I think she looks like a gorgeous young woman. Most certainly NOT like a 12 year old girl! Nothing weird about finding her hot.

di butler said...

As I've been saying forever, Selly G has been partying awhile, cannot, and doesn't sing live, and you have to accept that if you are going w kids to see her. She's a cute girl that no eds a sitcom job and to stop singing. I have heard she ws partying hard, but I hadn't heard it was rehab level. Good luck, SG, try to get a network ensemble comedy once you get better!

Andy said...

Well this girl has been run hard and long by her handlers, no sexual pun intended. She does look burned out. Maybe 6 months of nothing would be good for her.
