Selena Gomez's body of work speaks for itself.
The 23-year-old "Good for You" singer appeared on The Cruz Show on Power 106 Los Angeles Friday, where she discussed the "emotional" process of making her new album, Revival, available Oct. 9. "The last two years, honestly, everybody's had a say in my life," she said. "Nobody knows...It kind of just got out of hand."
In addition to signing with a new record label, Gomez worked with new a new team of producers to make Revival. "I really trusted people and they heard me. They were really understanding that I was fed up with everything. I was crying in the studio. Then I was happy in the studio. I recorded the best songs of my career in the studio. It was such a time for me to explore who I am," she said. "That was really important. I think that's why we called it Revival. It's the first song on the album."
The host asked, "Do you ever smoke to take the edge off?"
Gomez laughed. "I mean, I've smoked cigarettes," she said, "but that's basically all."
