We’re loving this confident and empowered Selena Gomez.
On Monday, Selly G stopped by Z 100‘s Elvis Duran and The Morning Show in New York and dished all about life, love, and her versatile career. YASSSS!
Of course, as the former Disney darling popped by the radio show to promote her new single, Bad Liar, the A-lister opened up about the head space she was in while writing the hit. As you may recall, Miz Gomez disappeared from the spotlight for a bit in 2016 in order to focus on her mental and physical health. This opportunity to rest and reset gave the pop star the strength to release new music — which she’s been working on for over a year.
“I think it’s important to balance out where I am. I’ve been doing this for a really long time. My sanity has meant everything to me..”
In fact, the 24-year-old is still putting her mental health first — which is why she’s taken a break from extensive traveling. She continued:
“I haven’t really been all over the place recently and it’s intentional. I am very empathetic so sometimes traveling can be hard for me.”
Very fair. The triple threat also refuses to surround herself with negativity.
Like most starlets, Selena has unfortunately been body shamed. Regardless, the Wizards Of Waverly Place alum loves her figure and will not tolerate any body shaming in her inner circle. Gomez relayed:
“If anyone told me to go on a diet, I don’t think they would be working with me anymore.
Despite her past hardships, Selena is still moving forward with new music. The dark haired stunner even teased some tea about her next single post Bad Liar. She quipped:
“The second single is even more surprising than Bad Liar. I was playing it for my friends last night and it’s so fun…I can’t, but it’s really exciting!”

So exciting! We’re definitely looking forward to this secretive second single as she promises her new stuff is “genuine, honest, and real.” The It Ain’t Me singer also addressed the controversy surrounding 13 Reasons Why, the Netflix hit she executive produces.
After revealing that she was “overwhelmed” by the reaction to the show, she reminded fans that the content is both “complicated and hard to swallow.” She’s not wrong!
Although Taylor Swift‘s bestie didn’t drop any spoilers, she did promise the second season “would answer a lot of questions.”
Okay, so we’ve covered her career pretty extensively… what’s going on in Selena’s love life?? While the It girl stayed relatively tight lipped about her relationship with The Weeknd, she did note:
“I’m very obvious when I talk about my feelings for somebody.”
Awwwww. It honestly seems like things are going great for Selena these days — and we couldn’t be more stoked for her.
