Pop singer Selena Gomez on Thursday canceled her coming Australian concert tour, saying she needs to take the time to put herself before work. Billboard.com is reporting her Asian dates in the new year were also nixed.
The 21-year-old former Disney star was to perform five concerts in Australia, beginning on Feb. 1, 2014, in Perth and concluding on Feb, 8 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.
