Charlie Puth supports Selena Gomez's break from the spotlight
Singer-songwriter Charlie Puth has revealed that "it's good" his 'We Don't Talk Anymore' collaborator Selena Gomez took some time out from the spotlight because fame can be incredibly overwhelming.
He spoke to MTV about Gomez's decision to step away from her public self for a while and confessed that navigating your way through life when people 'see you as an object' is a very destabilising experience, so he completely understands why she gave herself permission to take time off:
"I think it's good and I think it's great that she was taking some time off for herself, because I see it on a much smaller scale - people... who are maybe not necessarily fans, seeing you as an object and shouting things at you. Real fans won't scream obscene things out at you, but it's important to feel like a human again. So, I think her taking some time off is a really good thing."
Puth went onto add that he empathises with Gomez and often struggles with similar things himself: "I can feel it getting to myself sometimes. I'll be emotionally drained and kind of lifeless. So if I take like, a week off and just go hiking, I don't look at Twitter every five minutes, but just hit the giant refresh button."
