Selena Gomez was insecure her voice not 'feminine' enough

SELENA Gomez is insecure about her speaking voice.

The 'Good For You' hitmaker has admitted she was always embarrassed by the tone of her voice as a young girl but says she sees it as an "asset" now.

Writing on Twitter, she explained: "I was always insecure with my speaking voice because it's so low. I never felt like it was feminine-sounding.

"I didn't know it would be such an asset to who I am now, thought. It adds a cool, personal quality. It's exciting."

Meanwhile, the 23-year-old beauty recently revealed she hopes to use her own self-confidence issues to help encourage young girls to be positive about their own image.

She shared: "There are so many moments that I feel insecure and I feel all of these things but I hate them. If anything I hate that young girls look at all these Instagram pictures and all these news reports and I just feel like they think they have to look like that or they think that's what happiness is.

"I feel like that's such a big thing for me when they say, 'Oh I'm so unhappy and I feel like everybody at school hates me,' or whatever it is, I can't help just ... I want to shake everyone and be like, 'You're insane. You're incredible. You're beautiful. You're strong. You're unique.'"
