"It's really hard when I would want to spend so much time hiding things. It's too much pressure, and I think everyone gets over everything eventually," the 24-year-old said in what seemed to be a reference to her past relationship with Justin Bieber. "I just want to be happy. If that's me just being myself, then I don't really care."
"Obviously she's referring to The Weeknd," Seacrest clarified. Gomez politely corrected him by saying, "Abel...that's so weird!"
Love life aside, Gomez took a three-month break from the spotlight altogether last fall. She cited her mental health as the reason for the much-deserved hiatus.
"I've been doing this for so long and I needed a second to breathe," Gomez explained. "When I did that, I came back and I had it for a while, and I think it's safe to say I feel like I have a whole album put together at this point. I wanted to make sure my life was balanced and happy and healthy first."
