The Weeknd is more ofa ‘best friend’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Singer Se­lena Gomez (far right) is all ready to come out with her new al­bum. And it seems she is re­ally happy in her per­sonal life, too.

Ac­cord­ing to E! On­line, the Bad Liar hit­maker shares that she is lucky to have The Weeknd (right) in her life as he’s more of a best friend than anyt­ing else. She says, “I don’t de­pend on one area of my life to make me happy. It’s re­ally im­por­tant for me to love and nour­ish my friends and fam­ily, and to make sure that I never get in­flu­enced by a guy. I’ve wanted to be in a strong head space for years, and I re­ally wasn’t.

“Be­fore, I was so young and eas­ily in­flu­enced, and I’d feel in­se­cure. You want some­one to add to your life, not to com­plete you, if that makes sense. I’m lucky be­cause [The Weeknd] is more of a best friend than any­thing else.”

Gomez has also opened up about the treat­ment she took to fo­cus on her emo­tional health and ex­haus­tion. “I went away for 90 days, and it was the best thing that I ever could’ve done. I had no phone, noth­ing, and I was scared. But it was amaz­ing, and I learned a lot,” says the singer-ac­tor. She adds that be­ing com­pletely cut off from the out­side world and her life as a celebrity was cru­cial to her per­sonal heal­ing process.

“I was in the coun­try­side and never did my hair; I took part in equine ther­apy, which is so beau­ti­ful. And it was hard, ob­vi­ously. But I knew what my heart was say­ing, and I thought, ‘OK, this has helped me be­come stronger for other peo­ple.’”
