Selena Gomez Addresses Photo of Her and Hailey Bieber: ‘Not a Big Deal’
"I also wanted to ask — that recent photo released of you and Hailey Bieber felt full circle. What was the story behind it? I thought it was powerful of you guys to publicly be like, 'We’re moving on,'" the interviewer asked.
"Thank you. Yeah, it’s not a big deal. It’s not even a thing," Gomez replied.
Her response echoes the sentiments of Hailey Bieber's interview with popular podcast Call Her Daddy, where she said neither woman owes the other anything "except respect" and that there's "no drama" between them over Justin Bieber.
In the interview, Gomez also discussed her upcoming Apple TV+ documentary, Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me, which explores the star's mental and physical health struggles over the past six years.
She also teased her new music, which she said she's been working on "for years."
"I want to be able to grow through my music. I am the person who’s terrified of what will happen once it’s out, so I want it to be really well done and representative of where I am. There is a bunch of fun stuff that I’m so eager to leak, if I’m being honest. I shall not. But I’m so excited. It’ll be fun and refreshing, I think," she said of her next album.
As for the state of her mental health and her personal growth journey today, Gomez told the publication that she's now living in New York City and "just being."
She said growing up and "discovering [herself] through [her] 20s" in the public eye created a world where she found it difficult to separate who she truly is from her public persona as a former Disney star and current actor and pop star.
When asked if she can separate herself from her "persona" these days, she shared, "Completely. I can now. Thank God I can. I am so happy and lovely here in New York. I love living with the older generation, so I’m on the Upper East Side. It’s very nice for that. I’m currently in a little cave and it’s so lovely and private."
