After facing technical issues (and dropping the f-bomb) during her set at Jingle Ball in Los Angeles, Selena Gomez has announced that she will be canceling her upcoming tour dates.

In a statement she explained, "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."

Awwww! She could never disappoint us! We're totally all for the starlet taking some time for herself. Hopefully she'll get some good naps in and be back on stage soon enough. And about the whole lip synching fiasco, who cares. Everyone does it sometimes, right? As Miley Cyrus would say, "Forget the haters, cuz somebody loves ya!" Here are some pics of Selena looking like a total hottie/badass because we love her.
