The young singer took to the stage at We Day California yesterday and addressed a group of fans, opening up for the first time about her recent stint in rehab.
"I lost sight of who I was," Gomez said of her multi-week stay in January. "I listened to opinions of people, and I tried to change who I am because I thought the others would accept me for it. And I realized I don’t know how to be anything but myself.”
The exact reasons behind Selena's rehab visit have never been made public, though many believe she was an emotional wreck following her relationship with Justin Bieber.
Gomez advised everyone to "stay true to yourself" and added:
"I’ve learned from my actions, and for all the things I’ve done, I’m proudest of that. I’ve learned from my mistakes."
And that's really all we can ask of ourselves, isn't it?
Selena also noted that "you are who you surround yourself with," causing us to guess whether she's referring to Bieber... and, if so, whether she's doing so in a positive manner or not.
