Canceling 13 shows on her Stars Dance tour, she explained her reasoning for backing out in a statement to Live Nation: "My fans are so important to me and I would never want to disappoint them. “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. To my fans, I sincerely apologize and I hope you guys know how much each and every one of you mean to me."

Gomez, 21, was to begin this leg of her tour mid-January, hitting up five cities in Australia as well as performances in Japan, China, Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines, Billboard reports.
