Selena Gomez’s Friend Raquelle Stevens Called Out as ‘Toxic’ over ‘My Mind and Me’ Scenes
Many viewers believed that Stevens wanted to be there for Gomez at various points in the documentary, but one particular incident disproved that belief.
Originally published on GlamourBuff.com
Although Selena Gomez is the focus of her new documentary My Mind & Me, her longtime friend Raquelle Stevens regularly appeared with her in the film. She even described Gomez’s most terrifying mental health incident, when the actress experienced psychosis in 2018.
Stevens has been friends with Gomez for more than ten years and has supported her through some of her scariest experiences, but now that the documentary has been out, Stevens is facing criticism from fans.
Gomez’s close friends were seen throughout the documentary, and a few of them have also been featured on her HBO show Selena + Chef. Although many viewers thought there were times in the documentary when Stevens wanted to be there for Gomez, one specific occurrence contradicted that theory.
People were upset over the situation, which is when Stevens and Gomez got into an argument. She was frequently traveling, had a busy job schedule, and had recently returned from Kenya at the moment.
The vocalist of ‘Lose You to Love Me’ was in the midst of a significant album promotion that included a considerable press tour with daily interviews in abundance. She was overwhelmed as her friend Stevens informed her that they had a birthday dinner to attend.
Gomez declined due to a music video shoot, which was fair given that she had just returned from Kenya and had traveled straight to London for a press tour. She was likely exhausted at the time.
“It’s a lot,” she replied to her buddy, and the friend remarked that she thought Gomez was whining about her job. Gomez then snapped at her, telling her that she wasn’t ungrateful or complaining and that she didn’t want Stevens to have that impression of her.

Stevens also thought that Gomez had been down a previous couple of days because she didn’t appear to be having fun, and Gomez responded, “What else do you want from me?” before walking away.
Fans’ reaction toward Selena Gomez’s friendship with Raquelle Stevens
Fans are questioning the sincerity of Gomez’s friends, particularly her friend Stevens, in the wake of the publication of her documentary My Mind & Me. Fans of Gomez thought Stevens was not genuine and might be a secret hater.
After watching her documentary, many of her followers thought Stevens was a paid friend, and the singer needed better friends; as one of the fans tweeted, “Selena Gomez needs to get rid of Raquelle she is a horrible friend.”
Another admirer wrote, “Y’all idc about celebrities but selena gomez needs to be protected at all costs and she needs to get rid of Raquelle because shes a fake ass friend i can tell.”
Some hardcore fans of the singer even asserted that Stevens, Gomez’s longtime friend, is extremely envious of her and her success.
A Twitter handle under the username @elainaprossimo tweeted, “Am I the only person who thinks Selena Gomez’s best friend Raquelle is incredibly jealous of her.”

Lindsey Simon Gurk Opens up about Her Experience with Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder
Lindsey Simon Gurk struggled a lot with PMDD.
Lindsey Simon Gurk recently became vulnerable about her Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, also known as PMDD, on Instagram.
She shared two videos with a lengthy caption, revealing her struggles with PMDD and how difficult time she had with the disorder her entire life. But fortunately, she was now okay and had not been experiencing the pain for over six months.
Here is everything she shared about her situation.
Lindsey Simon Gurk on Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder
In her first video, uploaded on March 21, 2023, on Instagram, Gurk stressfully shared how she had been struggling with PMDD for a very long time.
She initially shared her experience in September 2022 to help others who were going through the same as her. In the video, she explained how she tried everything she could to fix it.
Unfortunately, none of them were working. One such day when she was in deep pain, she cried in her bathroom, feeling worthless.
She was feeling suicidal and started imagining her husband’s and children’s life without her. Gurk has been with her husband, Mike, for over a decade, and the couple has two kids.
After feeling suicidal, for the first time in her life, the influencer went down on her knees and prayed to God. She begged to end her pain and asked him to use her.
She knew her pain would last forever, and the only solution she had was to pray to God. Surprisingly, after that incident, she did not experience PMDD.
At the time of her uploading the video, she was free from PMDD for six months. Years of pain were gone, and she did not even experience premenstrual syndrome.
In her second video, Gurk explained gleefully how a massive burden had been lifted from her shoulders. She felt that she did not deserve the blessing but was very grateful to be pain-free after so long.

She claimed that getting rid of PMDD was a miracle to her, and was happy that she could lead a normal life. In the captions of the video, she shared how uncomfortable it was to share the thoughts she had.
Regardless, she believed it was important for her to be vulnerable. She wrote, “But I feel it’s necessary to be completely open and vulnerable so that you all can better understand just how dark things got.”
Gurk’s life was a living hell because of PMDD. Her entire life and schedule revolved around the disorder.
She explained, “I actually rearranged my schedule around PMDD. No extended family dinners, girls’ nights, trips, or catch-up phone calls during that time of the month. Again, I didn’t want to bring anyone down.”
Thankfully, her husband was there to see how horrible it was for her and be there to support his wife.
Gurk admitted that PMDD suddenly disappearing might sound fake, but it was not. She was being honest and shared her truth with her fans and followers on Instagram.
She wrote, “Also, I know not everyone shares my beliefs, so thank you for allowing me to share this.” At last, she urged her followers to ask God with an open mind what they wanted, and their wishes might be granted.
“Ask questions. Don’t blindly believe… SEEK the answers with an open heart and quizzical mind. You WILL find Him. And you’ll realize He’s been there with you all along… just waiting,” she ended her statement.
What is premenstrual dysphoric disorder?
PMDD is a medical condition that affects some women during their menstrual cycle. It is a severe form of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) that causes physical and emotional symptoms.
These symptoms start to appear a week or two before menstruation and disappear after the onset of the menstrual cycle. PMDD is characterized by various symptoms, including mood swings, irritability, difficulty concentrating, anxiety, depression, and fatigue.
Some women may also experience physical symptoms such as bloating, breast tenderness, headaches, and joint pain. The symptoms can be severe enough to disrupt the woman’s daily life and relationships.
PMDD is believed to be caused by a combination of hormonal and chemical imbalances in the brain. The female hormones estrogen and progesterone play a crucial role in regulating menstrual cycles and affect the brain’s neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and dopamine.
These neurotransmitters are responsible for regulating mood, appetite, and sleep. When the levels of these hormones fluctuate during the menstrual cycle, it can cause PMDD symptoms.
PMDD affects approximately 5-8% of women who are of reproductive age. It is more common in women who have a history of depression, anxiety, or other mental health conditions.
Women with a family history of PMDD or mood disorders are also at a higher risk of developing PMDD. Diagnosis of PMDD can be challenging, as its symptoms are similar to other medical conditions, such as depression, anxiety, and thyroid disorders.
However, doctors can diagnose PMDD by evaluating the woman’s symptoms over several menstrual cycles and ruling out other medical conditions that may cause similar symptoms.
Treatment for PMDD varies depending on the severity of the symptoms. Mild symptoms can be managed through lifestyle changes such as regular exercise, a healthy diet, and stress management techniques.
Women with more severe symptoms may require medication such as antidepressants or hormonal birth control pills to regulate their hormone levels. In severe cases, women may require surgical removal of their ovaries to eliminate the hormonal fluctuations that cause PMDD.
PMDD can significantly impact a woman’s quality of life and relationships. Women who experience these symptoms should speak to their doctor for diagnosis and treatment. With proper treatment, women with PMDD can manage their symptoms and improve their overall well-being.

Miley Cyrus to Drop New Album ‘Endless Summer Vacation’ Volume 2
Brandi Cyrus remarked, “My favorite song is actually not on here…”
Miley Cyrus has already made an impressive start to 2023, with her latest album, Endless Summer Vacation, debuting at the top of the charts.
However, the pop superstar is not content to sit back, as she is rumored to release Endless Summer Vacation Volume 2 in the coming months.
The move is reminiscent of similar surprise album drops by Taylor Swift and Beyonce and is expected to generate plenty of hype and buzz among fans.
When asked about the album last week, Miley’s sister Brandi Cyrus remarked, “My favorite song is actually not on here, it will be coming out later.” This sparked rumors regarding her plans for Endless Summer Vacation Vol 2.
A source added Miley had written so many “amazing songs” for her latest album that it was evident a standard record would not do it justice.
The source also claimed, initially, the plan was to release the album as Endless Summer Vacation Volume 1, but then the idea of a surprise drop was deemed more appropriate.
The new album will feature even more autobiographical songs about her personal life, including a remix of her recent hit ‘Flowers.’

The surprise album will also focus on Miley’s tumultuous love life, including her failed marriage to Liam Hemsworth and her current relationship with Maxx Morando.
Fans got a hint of what to expect when the 30-year-old singer released some of her most savage lyrics to date on ‘Muddy Feet’ in collab with SIA, where she appeared to confirm rumors that Hemsworth cheated on her.
The upcoming release is expected to be just as personal and revealing as the first volume of Endless Summer Vacation, which quickly became one of Miley’s most acclaimed albums.
With the surprise release of the second volume, the artist is sure to maintain her position as one of the biggest names in pop music.
Miley Cyrus’ ‘Endless Summer Vacation’ debuts at No. 3
Miley has once again proven her enduring popularity with fans, as her latest album, Endless Summer Vacation, debuted at an impressive No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart.
The album has earned a total of 119,00 equivalent album units in its first week, including 61,000 in streaming equivalent album units, marking Miley’s biggest streaming week in history.

The 13-track project also earned 55,000 in album sales. This latest feat adds to Miley’s impressive track record, as it is her 14th US top-10 album and her biggest week by units.
The album’s success can be attributed to its mix of upbeat pop anthems, introspective ballads, and catchy hooks, which showcase her versatility as an artist.
The album’s lead single, ‘Flowers,’ which was released in January, has also been a major factor in the album’s success.
The song spent a total of seven weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making it the biggest hit of Miley’s career.
