Where she did an interview with Lulu Garcia-Navarro.

The interviewer asked her about her song, "Lose You to Love Me" off her new album Rare. She wanted to know the meaning.

Gomez replied: "I felt I didn’t get a respectful closure, and I had accepted that, but I know I needed some way to just say a few things that I wish I had said."

"It’s not a hateful song; it’s a song that is saying — I had something beautiful and I would never deny that it wasn’t that. It was very difficult and I’m happy it’s over."

Garcia-Navarro pressed about the song, and Gomez admitted that yes, she was talking about her time with Justin Bieber.

Also, she said that during the relationship, Justin Beiber had abused her in certain ways.

When the interviewer asked if it was emotional abuse, Gomez replied: "Yes, and I think that it’s something that — I had to find a way to understand it as an adult. And I had to understand the choices I was making."

"As much as I definitely don’t want to spend the rest of my life talking about this, I am really proud that I can say I feel the strongest I’ve ever felt and I’ve found a way to just walk through it with as much grace as possible."

Good for her!
