Having just turned 24, Selena Gomez has clearly been having a think about her life and career and has posted a pretty emotional Instagram post explaining that she has been battling feelings of inauthenticity recently.

Taking to the 'gram, Sel explained that while she is in no way ungrateful for where she is, she really wants to change certain areas of her life after beginning to feel that it's creating an image that isn't the real her.

Confessing how she is feeling with fans, she posted a screengrab of a typed message after a show in Indonesia.

"Tonight I felt extremely unauthentic, unconnected to both myself and my music," she writes. "I've never really felt like my materials, wardrobe or a video could define me. I act on a moment and fear something hasn't happened.

"I'm stagnant, I stay still and don't just sit with myself first and ask 'is this where I am, wholeheartedly?'"

She continues: "I've always told the truth. I'm always true to my word, I've shown who I am but I need to rethink some areas of my life creatively and personally. 

"Had to get that out," Selena concluded.

While it's pretty badass of her to share this so publicly, Selena also wanted to make it clear that this had nothing to do with the fans or the place - it was just something she needed to say in general about herself.

"Not being negative about anything I've done," she wrote in the caption. "I'm grateful for every single moment I get here - Indonesia you were LOUD and clearly inspiring. Love you so much."
