Selena Gomez has opened up about the depression she has felt in the past.
Selena Gomez has revealed how she was “a little bit depressed”.
The Come & Get It singer completed a secret two-week stint in rehab last year. While her rep denied it was for anything to do with addiction, the 22-year-old has never confirmed what the reason for her stay was. But in a new interview with V magazine, the star opened up about some of the problems she has dealt with in the last year.
“There were a few months where I was a little depressed, where I wouldn’t leave [my home] as much," she said. “I think I drove myself crazy for a little bit. It was just easier to say, ‘Hey, do you mind running to the grocery store and picking some stuff up? I don’t want to get photographed.’”
One of the reasons for her anxiety could have been her tumultuous on-off relationship with fellow singer Justin Bieber. Selena, who poses topless in the accompanying photoshoot, didn’t address the 20-year-old by name, but did discuss how she will approach her next relationship very differently.
“I think the next time [I have a boyfriend] will be much different … which will definitely not be anytime soon,” she shared. “That’s a growing up kind of thing. I was 18 years old, and it was my first love. The older I get, I’m guarding certain things more.”
While things didn’t work out between the pair, Selena doesn’t regret what they had together.
“When you’re young and you’re being told so many different things … it almost felt like all we had was each other, like the world was against us, in a way," she added. “It was really weird but it was incredible. I would never take it back in a million years. You live and you learn, you know?”
