Brace Yourselves, Because Selena Gomez’s Cries For Help On Instagram Just Got Louder

To anyone who says that I’m reading into the fact that Selena Gomez‘s Instagram page has become one loud cry for help, I cordially invite you to journey over there right now and eat your words. Eat them right up, because Selena’s struggles have become so obvious that even her own fans, the Selenators, have been asking if she’s okay in the comments.

Short answer to whether she’s okay? I’m gonna have to guess no, because if anything, her photos are just getting more mysterious and worrisome, and her captions more cryptic and attention-seeking.

Here’s Selena at a pharmacy, presumably, picking up something for the sinus problems she tells us in the caption that she’s experiencing. Please note the sunglasses and full Coachella outfit inside a building. We’re not in full danger zone yet, just ‘huh’ territory. Selfies like these invariably remind me of the ones that Amanda Bynes was posting before she had her meltdown, so I’m particularly wary.

Annnnnd even more shades of Bynes, with that slack jaw and dead eyes. She still looks beautiful, don’t get me wrong, she just has that unfocused sheen and chapped lips that I’ve come to associate with drug and alcohol use. But who knows if that’s what’s up with her.

This is what I’m talking about with the weird captions — this one is: “Class never runs scared. It is sure-footed and confident, and it can handle whatever comes along. Class has a sense of humor. It knows that a good laugh is the best lubricant for oiling the machinery of human relations.” What are we talking about here, buddy?

And this one! Doesn’t it look like Selena has been crying behind her glasses? Look how puffy her eyes are, and how sad she looks! No caption on it, but her followers apparently agree with me that something is up, because they’ve been asking her if she’s okay, telling Selena they’re there for her, and even starting the hashtag #weloveyouselena in the comment section.

This kicks off a solid twenty-four hours of updates, and the caption “Always said I was going to end up there, but I guess that’s where it was meant to end.” makes me feel like Selena’s either referencing a recent breakup with Justin Bieber or threatening to do something more drastic. Either way, we need to be taking her extremely seriously.

She looks like such a sad, scared little girl here, and the way the microphone is in her hair like that makes it seem like she’s out of it. And again, she looks incredibly sad, and the fact that she put the photo on Instagram means she wants us all to notice that. (Especially because the caption is ‘I don’t know. I’m on my way you know.’)

Just an upside down photo and comment section, which gives me the heebie-jeebies. The caption says ‘You’re always listened to’, and the follow up photo says ‘And usually always right’. And everyone in the comment section is telling Selena that Justin isn’t worth it, so it seems like this is all breakup stuff.

And the most recent one. No idea who the text is from, but it seems like this is the message that Selena needs from all of us, which is why she’s asking for it — you’re special, you’re fine, please be safe and kind to yourself. And for the rest of us, let’s please keep an eye on this, yes? Because Selena is clearly not okay.

      I do sincerely hope she is okay.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        I really do too, but I’m legit scared!

    • Lily Savage

      Something’s up for sure. I wonder if she’ll delete the pictures in a few days though and pretend like it never happened.

      Miley Cyrus is much closer to the Amanda Bynes meltdown phase. She’s literally regressed in to a the psychological state of a toddler and her Instagram posts look very similar to the beginning stages of the Bynes posts. I think they both need help but I’m far more worried about Miley.

      • JenH1986

        I don’t know. Miley’s posts etc. seem very calculated Selena’s seem more off the cuff. I feel like Miley knows EXACTLY what she is doing whereas Selena seems to just be floating without direction.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        I agree.

      • FemelleChevalier

        Miley is too self-aware that I’ll be really really surprised if that happens.

    • Sarah Ellen

      Selena’s not innocent..I feel bad for anyone suffering a mental breakdown but read exposingsmg tumblr(who is very credible and has predicted many things that were proven to be true) and you’ll see the real Selena. She’s addicted to alcohol and coke. Just look at the recent blinds on blind gossip about her.

      • DisneyFreak876

        i highly think that is not true Sarah to be honest Selena would never do that and if so its probaly because of her break up with justin

      See today’s Gossip Cop page one, and there’s your answer. As his PR people are trying to say, they hadn’t officially “reunited.”

      So everyone is supposed to believe it’s okay that he’s now posting photos with Yovanna Ventura. It’s time for her to understand the kid is a sack of shit and to move on permanently.

      Selena has escalating addiction problems. Before rehab, she got really thin and she was totally spaced in her concerts. And abusing prescription pain killers and hard drugs is bad, bad stuff. We’ve had an epidemic of deaths from pain killer abuse, and she keeps wanting to return to vodka and coke. She was stumbling around for months like a discharge from a hospital on pain killers.

      There are people dying, people being sold as sex slaves,
      people crying because their stomachs have expanded so much from starvation that
      they feel as though they are going to explode. I don’t think our “eyes” should
      be on Selena Gomez who has the money to vacation in a third world country and
      turn a blind eye to its troubled residents only until she’s looking for a tax
      right off and publicity coverage. Sure she’s a good person blah, blah, blah,
      but she’s lucky that her problems extend to the size of her chest and the
      influence of an equally spoiled bf.

        You think that just because Selena has money that she can fix herself right up . You’re as naïve as a retard. How do you know the extend of her problems? How she feels inside and is confused of what to do. You’re not a psychiatrist so quit trying to act like one. She needs help not stupid criticism from you.

      • Sierra Stridiron

        I wasn’t criticizing Selena, I was criticizing the article’s syntax. But thanks for the irrational comment.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Which sentence or arrangement of words did you feel was particularly ill-formed?
