While talking about the condition, Gomez cleared as to why she was away from the spotlight which caused a flurry of speculation as to what was keeping the star away.
"I was diagnosed with lupus, and I've been through chemotherapy. That's what my break was really about. I could've had a stroke," Gomez revealed to the magazine.
"I wanted so badly to say, 'You guys have no idea. I'm in chemotherapy. You're assholes.' I locked myself away until I was confident and comfortable again," she told the mag. The full cover story will be released today (Oct. 8).
The singer came back stronger and sexier. Her breakout single "Good For You" and recent track "Same Old Love" have been creating a lot of buzz over the change of voice and a sexier image of the 23-year-old Disney star.
Well, the singer turned actress also admitted that she is venting her frustration and anger through her music.
"I'm so f--king nice to everybody, and everyone is so vile to me. I've been working since I was 7. I've been a UNICEF ambassador since I was 17. It's so disappointing that I've become a tabloid story," Selena said. However she also credits her critics as a driving force for this album saying, "The hate motivated me."
Her highly anticipated album, Revival is releasing in a few days. Meanwhile, the star teased a Revival tour on Instagram with a video stating the tour will begin in May with stops throughout the United States and Canada. The tour will gradually go abroad.
