Selena Gomez opened up about her ongoing battle with depression and anxiety in a new interview with Harper’s Bazaar.
Although the “Wolves” singer has been focusing on her health this year, she says it’s not something I feel I’ll ever overcome. “I’ve had a lot of issues with depression and anxiety, and I’ve been very vocal about it, but it’s not something I feel I’ll ever overcome. There won’t be a day when I’m like, ‘Here I am in a pretty dress — I won!’ I think it’s a battle I’m gonna have to face for the rest of my life, and I’m OK with that because I know that I’m choosing myself over anything else,” she said in the interview.

Gomez producer explained that because she is putting her health first, she is taking her time with the follow-up to her 2015 album, Revival. “I want to make sure I’m healthy. If that’s good, everything else will fall into place,” she said. “My next album has been forever in the making. When people ask me why, I’m honest about it: It’s because I haven’t been ready. I mean, point-blank, I don’t feel confident enough in where my music is yet. If that takes 10 years, then it takes 10 years. I don’t care. Right now I just want to be super intentional with all of the things I’m doing.”
