Which Mega-Star Admits She Would Be Willing to Give Up Her Fame?

The life of a celebrity seems pretty ideal. Mansions. Designer duds. Luxury cars. But one pop star has admitted that she'd be okay if her fame went away.

During the Met Gala, Selena Gomez was photographed for social media account Humans of New York (the page documents the lives of people living in the Big Apple) and she admitted that she would be just fine if her notoriety disappeared.

Says Gomez, "I feel like I'm just starting, but I think I'd be fine if it all went away. I get that from my mother. From the moment I started singing, she always reminded me that all of this was a privilege, and could be taken at any moment. So singing is not how I define myself. I try to keep my identity rooted in my friendships and my faith."
