Selena Gomez is a new person since taking a hiatus from her career. During a questionnaire with Thrive Global, the "Hands to Myself" singer opened up about her time away from the spotlight and how she's staying strong during this new period in her life. Not only has she surrounded herself with positive people, but she has also changed the way she communicates with others. "I recently took 90 days off. During that time I did not have my cellphone," she explained. "It was the most refreshing, calming, rejuvenating feeling. Now I rarely pick up my phone, and only limited people have access to me."
After cancelling the last leg of her Revival World Tour and checking into rehab to "focus on her mental health," the singer made her first public appearance at the American Music Awards last month. Not only did she look happy and healthy as she walked the red carpet, but she also gave an incredibly moving speech about self-acceptance and body positivity as she took to the stage to accept her award.
