Selena Gomez has ‘one more album’ left in her: ‘I’m tired’

Former Disney Channel star Selena Gomez revealed that she has one more album in her before she plans to take a step back from music to focus on her acting career.

“I do feel like I have one more album in me, but I would probably choose acting,” Gomez, 31, told the “SmartLess” podcast in an episode due to be released on Jan 8. “I am going to want to chill because I’m tired.”

“I wanted to be an actress, I never really intended on being a singer full time but apparently that hobby turned into something else,” the “Only Murders in the Building” actress said. “I don’t think I’m the best singer, but I do know how to tell stories and I love being able to make songs.”

Talking with hosts Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes and Will Arnett, the “Love You Like a Love Song” singer revealed that she initially loved balancing both acting and singing.

“I started having a lot of fun with music and then touring was really fun,” Gomez admitted. “But I was doing my TV show [‘Wizards of Waverly Place’] at the same time, and I just found it really fun, so I just kept going.”

Gomez revealed that her love for singing actually began on the Disney Channel.

“Disney is, it’s safe to say, a machine and, in a way, forcefully requires that I know how to sing, so I could sing the theme song [of a show],” she told the podcast co-hosts. “They know how to package someone and make it a whole triple-threat thing.”

However, as she aged and her fame grew, the “Come & Get It” singer realized that she “would like to find something to just settle on.”

Since her breakout album “Stars Dance” in 2013, the multi-hyphenate star has released three albums including her 2020 smash “Rare.”

In 2016, the “Who Says” songstress was forced to cancel her “Revival” tour after she suffered a “psychotic break” after performing only 55 shows.

Gomez’s former assistant Theresa recalled the incident during the singer’s 2022 docuseries, “My Mind & Me.”

“At one point she’s like, ‘I don’t want to be alive right now. I don’t want to live,’ ” the assistant said at the time. “And I’m like, ‘Wait, what?’ ”

“It was one of those moments where you look in her eyes, and there’s nothing there. It was just pitch black. It’s so scary,” she said. “You’re like, ‘F–k this. This needs to end. We need to go home.’ ”
