Earlier this year, Selena revealed that she felt overly sexualized during an album cover photoshoot.

Selena shared, “I did an album cover and I was really embarrassed afterwards.
“I had to work through those feelings because I realized it was connected to something deeper that was going on. And it was a decision I wasn’t exactly happy about, but I think I tried my best, at least I’m trying to be myself.”
