    "Rare," Gomez revealed, is about asserting your worth in a relationship, and was inspired by her experiences of manipulation. "I think men and women do it, especially teenagers and young people in love; there’s this satisfaction out of hurting someone because you know that they care. Purposefully putting someone doing because you want to keep them at a level," she explained. "It’s like to keep that person down so they never realize, 'Oh, I’m strong enough to actually get out of this situation.'"

    "So this is more of like a complete stance," Gomez said of her single. "I’m not going to beg for you, I’m not going to let you make me cry. I’m not getting enough from you and you clearly don’t realise that I’m hard to find."
