The actress and artist shared a candid message with her fans.

Selena Gomez is staying true to her roots! The 25-year-old actress and musician took to Instagram late Saturday night to share a photo of herself sitting on the steps of her childhood home in Grand Prairie, Texas.

Dressed in a loose white sweater, grey sweatpants, and white sneakers, Gomez wrote a touching message to go along with the photo.

“The home I grew up in, from birth to 13… (no one was home when I knocked this time lol) I visit this place every chance I get,” she began.

Gomez went on to talk about her on-going struggle with the status of her celebrity, writing, “In many ways it very well could have been better than my life today, but I’m grateful for a voice that can enable change today. Even when I don’t know how to do it well or actually want it. I love you Grand Prairie. Thank you.”

This isn’t the first time the former Disney star has expressed frustration with her A-list status. In October, she opened up on the Today show about her struggles with fame in relation to her lupus diagnosis.

“I don’t think I ever accepted the position I had. It was me almost feeling guilty about fame,” she explained at the time. “Because people could see anyone in my position and just say, ‘Wow they’ve got it all figured out. They’ve got everything, get to live this cool life.’ You’re isolated. You’re being looked at. You’re being judged.”

Gomez has recently rekindled her romance with her longtime love, Justin Bieber. For more on the couple’s newfound relationship, watch the clip below!
