It’s been almost nine months since Selena Gomez released the journey of her recent album, Rare, and now, she’s reminding fans that it was indeed supposed to be a journey, not a reflection of her continued state of mind.

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, the 28-years-old songstress opened up about the recording process for Rare, and why she was drawn to creating those songs. She revealed that it was her idea to release “Lose You to Love Me” and “Look at Her Now” in a back-to-back pop tour de force, even though it made her label “nervous.”

She explained, “I wanted people to take away that this was a journey and that it was completely closed,” she told RS. “I don’t want people to see me as just sad and hurt. I didn’t want that anymore. I wanted people to know that I experienced something real, and that part of me is over.’’

The Rare Beauty founder also shared more about her relationships to frequent collaborators Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter. Back in 2014, they helped shape the way she wanted to sound, the kind of artist she wanted to become. 

“I spent years of my life being very conscious of what I say and what I do. Not because I was scared—I just didn’t know if I had a right to say something. I didn’t know if it would get messy and cause any sort of uproar. I wanted it to be very safe,” she said. “The moment I started working with Interscope [in 2014], I was listening to “Good for You,” and that’s obviously Justin and Julia. I fell in love with the song. It was exactly where I was stepping into: being more of a woman and being OK with who I am, and not so scared to explore deeper into that.”
