Gomez may be referring to her past relationship with Justin Bieber, which she discussed during her interview with NPR in January. Reporter Lulu Garcia-Navarro asked if getting over Bieber and that relationship was one of the harder parts of Gomez's life.
"No, because I've found the strength in it," Gomez responded. "It's dangerous to stay in a victim mentality. And I'm not being disrespectful, I do feel I was a victim to certain abuse—"
"You mean emotional abuse?" Garcia-Navarro asked.
"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."
