What 2016 Taught Selena Gomez About Her Real Friends

Even BFF Taylor Swift watched.

By //Entertainment

No one could deny Selena Gomez had a tumultuous 2016. She checked into rehab prior to her reappearance at the 2016 AMAs to deliver a message about learning to love herself:

“I kept it together and I swore I would never let you down, but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down. I’m not trying to get validation, nor do I need it anymore.”

The singer only recently returned to Instagram and took to Live to broadcast her 2016 takeaways. “The biggest lesson that I’ve been learning since 2016 would definitely be awareness,” she started.

“I think it’s really important to be aware of like, the people that you’re surrounding yourself with, the people that are purposefully the ones you are spending time with. We go to dinner sometimes with friends, and sometimes we’ll go to dinner and we’ll leave and we’ll think, ‘That was such a pointless dinner. What did I learn from it? What will I gain from it? What was the point of it?’ And then other nights we’ll sit at the table for five hours with friends…[discussing] where you are in life. Like where we are, we’re constantly checking in with each other. Like ‘Hey, are you good? Are you good?’”

BFF Taylor Swift was among her audience. Watch the pre-recorded stream below while she chows down on grub.
