You’re probably wondering: Does Selena Gomez smoke weed? The former Disney star has risen to fame through her music, UNICEF charity work, and films like “Spring Breakers.” Does she also smoke weed in her spare time?
Who is Selena Gomez?
Selena Gomez was born in 1992 to a sixteen-year-old mother. Her mom often left Gomez in the care of her grandparents so that she and Gomez’s father could successfully finish school and work three jobs to make ends meet.
Although she was raised under financial strain, she now understands and appreciates everything her mother did for her. As a child, Gomez participated in a few pageants, and eventually auditioned for “Barney and Friends,” where she met her on-again-off-again friend Demi Lovato.
She and Lovato eventually started to audition for TV shows and movies under the Disney Channel corporation. After a cameo appearance in “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” and a recurring role on “Hannah Montana,” Gomez won the lead role in a new series: “The Wizards of Waverly Place.”
After recording original songs and covers with Disney, Gomez signed with Hollywood Records when she was sixteen. The label had also signed two other Disney stars: Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus. She eventually formed a pop-rock band named Selena Gomez & The Scene.
Throughout her professional life, Gomez has struck a balance between her musical career and her acting career. In 2013, she starred in the film “Spring Breakers” and went on to lend her voice to the animated feature “Hotel Transylvania.”
In 2014, Gomez checked herself into a rehab facility in Arizona. Her representative stated that she was not there for substance abuse, but for mental health reasons.
The next year, Gomez announced that she had lupus and the reason for checking into rehab was to undergo chemotherapy. In 2016, she checked herself back into rehab to focus on her mental health, which had taken a hit due to her lupus.
Gomez has been involved with UNICEF for a number of years. She even became the youngest ambassador for UNICEF at age seventeen.
Puff or Pass?
She has a busy schedule of performing, touring, and recording. Does Selena Gomez smoke weed at the end of a busy day?
Here’s what we know. During her press tour to promote “Spring Breakers” in 2012, Gomez told Jimmy Kimmel that she learned how to smoke a bong on set. She said that the taste of the fake weed they used for the film was so bad, she never wanted to try the real thing.
However, Gomez used to date Justin Bieber. As we all know, Biebs loves his weed. Does that mean that Gomez is a pothead by association? Not necessarily.
But a source close to Gomez and Bieber told a rather interesting story to Radar Online back in 2014. The source says that they went to Knott’s Berry Farm with Bieber, Gomez, and a few other friends.
On the way to the amusement park, Bieber allegedly rolled six “burrito-sized” joints and shared them with everyone in the car. Including Gomez.
Final Hit: Does Selena Gomez Smoke Weed?
Tabloids and gossip rags don’t always tell the truth. The fact is that we can’t say with any certainty whether or not Selena Gomez smokes weed.
We know that she’s been to rehab, where she might have been convinced to stay as sober as possible. Gomez is a lupus patient and cannabis can help treat lupus. So it’s possible that she uses weed to relieve her symptoms.
