Selena in an interview, revealed that she was a victim of emotional abuse while she was dating Justin Bieber. In an interview with NPR, the 27-year-old got super candid about her emotional experience while in relationship with pop star Justin Bieber.
Speaking of the song 'Lose You To Love Me' Selena said, "It has a different meaning to me now from when I wrote it. I felt I didn't get a respectful closure, and I had accepted that, but I know I needed some way to just say a few things that I wish I had said."
She further added, "It's not a hateful song; it's a song that is saying — I had something beautiful and I would never deny that it wasn't that."
"It was very difficult and I'm happy it's over. And I felt like this was a great way to just say, you know, it's done, and I understand that, and I respect that, and now here I am stepping into a whole other chapter,” said Selena.
When Garcia-Navarro from NPR, brushed up by stating, "Saying goodbye to Justin Bieber, who I'm assuming you're speaking about."
Gomez replied, "You had to get the name in, I get it."
When asked if it's hard for Selena to look back on the painful part, the singer while answering the question claimed to be a victim of 'certain' abuse.
She said, "No, because I've found the strength in it. It's dangerous to stay in a victim mentality. And I'm not being disrespectful, I do feel I was a victim to certain abuse —"
The interviewer clarified if she's referring to emotional abuse, to which she explained, "Yes, and I think that it's something that — I had to find a way to understand it as an adult. And I had to understand the choices I was making."
The 'Vulnerable' singer further stated, "As much as I definitely don't want to spend the rest of my life talking about this, I am really proud that I can say I feel the strongest I've ever felt and I've found a way to just walk through it with as much grace as possible"
