Gomez also revealed to Seacrest that she doesn't feel the need to hide anymore, as she's comfortable in her career, and in her own skin. She said, "Because I've been doing this for so long, I don't feel like there's anything that I would want to … not necessarily hide, but I'm genuinely myself."

The "Bad Liar" singer explained that life is too short to be in hiding, and said, "It's too much pressure, and I think everyone gets over everything eventually."

It's exciting to hear Gomez talk about The Weeknd like this, in such an open and honest way. It definitely seems as though the relationship has had a really positive impact on Gomez's life so far.
