Gomez disclosed she was diagnosed by doctors at McLean Hospital in Belmont Massachusetts, which she refers to as "one of the best mental health facilities in the United States".

"I started singing like "7 Things" and "See You Again" and "Who Owns My Heart" and "Can't Be Tamed" and then I realized that the idea that I've changed is really far off", Cyrus explained.

During an appearance on Cyrus's Bright Minded live-stream on Instagram, Gomez said: "It doesn't scare me once I know it". I mean, I've always been a fan of yours, I think you're one of the greatest singers ever. "If you're amusing enough and cool enough and confident, that's what will make you feel lovely".

But there are times when Selena chooses to breakdown and get it out of her.


She also encouraged everyone to help by self-quarantining, and even got emotional while speaking about watching her grandparents go through this challenging time.

Selena went on to adds that while growing up in Texas, she rarely heard anyone speak openly about their struggles with mental health.

"When I finally said what I was gonna say, I wanted to know everything about it and it took the fear away", Gomez said.

Miley asked Selena how she deals with unhelpful, dark thoughts, during the lockdown.


Selena has openly talked about her anxiety and depression in the past but hasn't before revealed that she suffers from bipolar disorder.

"I feel like there's been a lot of people I've gotten to do that with not necessarily saying it was bad, but just saying, 'Hey, I hope you're safe". I'm a big empath, so I feel so much of what the world is feeling.

"When all this has moved on and we can connect, we'll just hug."
"Being there for other people actually helps me, too".

Before Gomez, veteran singer Elton John and actor Kerry Washington appeared on Cyrus' Friday episode.


While answering several fan questions, the 27-year-old star shared that she's been thinking about some of her old songs lately as she hasn't released new songs.
