Selena Gomez has canceled her upcoming tour of Asia and Australia using an excuse rarely heard at the top level: she needs some “me” time.
Gomez’ reps announced last month that her international "Stars Dance" tour would swing Down Under and through Asia in the New Year, including dates in Japan, China, Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines.
The singer and actress was booked to play 13 shows in the region from mid-January. A five-city tour of Australia – her first – was to start Feb. 1 at Perth Arena. The trek was then expected to head east for dates at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre (Feb. 4), Brisbane Convention Centre (Feb. 6), Sydney Entertainment Centre (Feb. 7) and wrapping Feb. 8 at the 15,000-capacity Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne.
