Selena Gomez was born and raised in Texas and admits she’s glade she left her home for Hollywood. She even goes as far to say it “scares” her to think what would have become of her if she didn’t go after her dreams.

“I definitely didn’t appreciate [my upbringing] when I was little. I was frustrated that my parents weren’t together and never saw the light at the end of the tunnel where my mom was working hard to provide a better life for me. I’m terrified of what I would have become if I’d stayed there. I’m sure I’d have two children by now,” she previously told the US edition of Glamour magazine.

“It’s my duty,” she said.
