During a roundtable with discussion with The Hollywood Reporter, Gomez revealed that there was a time in her career when she felt ashamed of how she looked.

“I actually did an album cover and I was really ashamed after I did it,” she said. “I had to work through those feelings because I realized it was attached to something deeper that was going on. And it was a choice that I wasn’t necessarily happy that I made, but I think that I’ve done my best, at least I try to be myself.”

However, as time has gone on, the ex-girlfriend of Justin Bieber says she is learning to just be herself and to do things for herself rather than worrying about what others think, which has helped her mental health.

“I’m not an overly sexual person,” she explained. “Sometimes I like to feel sexy but that doesn’t mean it’s for somebody else. It can be for me.”
