Selena Gomez always seems to be extremely relatable, even when it comes to her injuries.
In the midst of promoting her new song this week, “Single Soon,” the singer/ actor revealed that she had recently broken her hand and needed surgery. Gomez, 31, confirmed her unfortunate injury underneath a fan post predicting that her single would enter the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.
“Broke my hand and had surgery,” Gomez wrote in a comment. “I don’t care about selling anything. I’m just happy to make music with my friends.”
While fans were curious about what happened to Gomez, she revealed this week on the KOST 1035 radio program, Ellen K Morning Show, that there isn't an exciting story behind the incident.
“I wish I had like, a really cool story that I saved someone's life or something,” Gomez said on the show. “I was in a long dress, it was a summer dress, and I was walking from my car to my house and tripped.”
Despite the cause of the injury being a mundane accident, Gomez pointed to her hand and added, “This is not fun.”
The radio host then noted that it's a good thing she didn't break her teeth, to which Gomez responded, “Yes, that's what the doctor said.”
The Only Murderers in the Building actor shared some glamorous selfies via Instagram Story on Friday, showing off her new cast, which she paired with a cozy grey outfit.
“Single Soon” comes as a preview for her next album, according to Gomez. The Rare Beauty founder noted on social media that she's “not quite done with SG3."
“I wanted to put out a fun little song I wrote a while back that’s perfect for the end of summer,” Gomez wrote in a post promoting the song.
She also promptly shut down rumors that her new song is a break-up anthem about her former relationship with The Weeknd — whom she dated for less than a year in 2017. Gomez succinctly wrote, “couldn't be more false,” under a gossip page that speculated on the song's meaning.
