“Only Murders in the Building” star Selena Gomez covers the April 2021 issue of Vogue magazine photographed by Nadine Ijewere and styled by Gabriella Karefa-Johnson.
On her family’s attitude towards their financial struggles: “I remember always being reminded that people had less than we did, and we didn’t have much. But I felt like we did because my mom was always doing a hundred million things just to make me happy, and we volunteered at soup kitchens on Thanksgiving; we went through my closet for Goodwill.”
On her recent outspokenness about the fact that her paternal grandparents were undocumented: “It wasn’t for any reason that I didn’t share it before. It’s just that as I started to see the world for what it is, all these things started to be like light bulbs going off. [Her grandparents came to Texas in a back-of-the-truck situation, and it took them 17 years to get citizenship. I remember that being such a huge deal. My grandpa was working construction, hiring hundreds of people, and still they were living on the edge, covering up how scary it was.”
Vogue’s April 2021 issue is available on newsstands nationwide on March 23rd.
