Selena Gomez fans may be shocked to learn that the singer isn’t a fan of her famous Revival album cover, which sees her posing nude. 

The former Disney star released the album in 2015 and the artwork features a black and white image of her sitting on the floor, cross-legged while completely naked and using only her hands to protect her modesty. 

At the time, it was seen as a move to separate Selena, 29, from her teeny-bop days into adulthood but she now reflects on it as being a decision she regrets. 

During a new roundtable, Selena’s Only Murders In The Building season two co-star Amy Schumer, said: ‘Someone like Selena, who was sexualised at such a young age, but you’ve just rejected that and have really found your own style and your own presence.

‘Because I know they put you through a system and make you feel like this is how you have to do it.’ 

Selena then responded during the Hollywood Reporter interview: ‘It’s really unfair. I actually did an album cover and I was really ashamed after I did it.

‘I had to work through those feelings because I realised it was attached to something deeper that was going on. 

‘It was a choice that I wasn’t necessarily happy that I made, but I think that I’ve done my best, at least I try to be myself.’ 

The former Wizards of Waverly Place actress explained that while she’s ‘not an overly sexual person’, she does like to ‘feel sexy’ sometimes and that ‘doesn’t mean it’s for somebody else’. 

‘It can be for me,’ she stated. 

Selena added: ‘Now I understand that there are certain boundaries that I need to set for myself, and I respect and adore so many people, but I’ve got to do what’s best for me.’

Earlier this year, the Hands To Myself singer was forced to hit back at body shamers who commented on her weight. 

Selena has battled various health issues in recent years, including lupus, bipolar disorder and depression. 

Defending herself in a TikTok video, she said: ‘I’ve been trying to stay skinny, but I went to Jack In The Box and I got four tacos, three egg rolls, onion rings and a spicy chicken sandwich.

‘Honestly I don’t care about my weight because people b*** about it anyway.’ 

Doing a mocking impression of those who comment on her looks, Selena went on: ‘You’re too small, you’re too big, that doesn’t fit, meh-meh-meh-meh!’

She then declared: ‘B****, I’m perfect the way I am.’
