Selena Gomez wants to be her happiest and most authentic self. That includes no longer hiding facets of her life like her relationship with boyfriend The Weeknd. Even though the star couple has been spotted together all over the globe since January, the "Bad Liar" singer has been pretty private about her relationship. Gomez only recently took things to the next level and made the duo Instagram official.

On popular radio show, On Air With Ryan Seacrest, she dished that she was tired of hiding things. "I think 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," Gomez expressed, seeming to reference her ultra private romance with Justin Bieber. "I just want to be happy. If that's me just being myself, then I don't really care."

The singer, actress and producer of 13 Reasons Why has been transparent with fans about taking time out of the spotlight to deal with her physical and mental health issues. "I've been doing this for so long and I needed a second to breathe," Gomez revealed to Seacrest. "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." Now that her health is back on track Gomez has been releasing chart topping singles, giving candid interviews about mental health a la 13 Reasons Why and publicly showing off her man.

Way to go Selena!
