Selena Gomez changes her tune about the pressures of fame

Gomez surprised dozens of young cancer patients on Wednesday by visiting them at the Children's Hospital Los Angeles, in California, where she took some time to get to know them.

"Selena took the time to stop and visit with each one, hear their stories, give hugs, share laughs and provide encouragement," the hospital said in a statement to E! News. "It was a much-needed lift for these children and their families during an incredibly difficult time."

The pop princess also shared pictures of some of the sick children that she met, and she posed with the kids near their hospital beds.
