Pop singer Selena Gomez says she needs to take time to put herself before work.
WASHINGTON - Pop singer Selena Gomez on Thursday cancelled her upcoming Australian concert tour, saying she needs to take the time to put herself before work.
The 21-year-old former Disney star was to perform five concerts in Australia, beginning 1 February 2014 in Perth and concluding on 8 February in Melbourne.
"My fans are so important to me and I would never want to disappoint them," the Come & Get It singer said in a statement.
"But it has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years of putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be."
Texas-born Gomez, who has also branched into serious film roles, is set to tour Asia in January.
