“It’s all a part of my story,” Gomez continuing of her past relationship while touching on her new album, Revival.
“I’m growing and dynamic . i used to be in a relationship, and that i was being managed by my parents, and i was still under Hollywood and Walt Disney, and i was being control to this expectation of being the great lady.”
“I knew at heart that this wasn’t what I wanted to do — being exhausted of forcing one thing that wasn’t right, even in my personal life.
I had to have moments wherever i used to be crying and i was like, ‘Why am I not in love with what I do?’ i was forced to induce very uncomfortable for a short while so as to form the choices I created,” Gomez disclosed of switching labels and management in preparation of her approaching album.
“I undoubtedly inform myself that I’m on top of things,” she concluded. “I feel like ultimately if I sit down and i think about a decision i need to form, it’s really within myself. I build the choice. Everything goes through me.
