The news is full of stories about 20-something former child stars coming unraveled, often to a shocking extent like Amanda Bynes, Miley Cyrus, and Lindsay Lohan. To her credit, Selena Gomez has enough self-awareness to know she needs a break. According to a Dec. 19 article on, the former Disney star from "Waverly Place," has cancelled her scheduled “Stars Dance” concert tour to Australia which was scheduled to start in February.

Gomez has expressed that she wants to be the best she can be for her fans and to do that she needs to spend a little time on herself. She cited that she had been putting her work first for many years.

One little phrase in her statement slightly stood out:

But it has become clear to me and those close to me….

This sounds like she has been advised by those around her that she is in a bad place and needs a break, doesn’t it?

Although disappointed fans are already bemoaning the cancellation on Twitter, Selena Gomez is behaving like the responsible person that she is known to be. She is to be commended for taking charge of her own life.
