Selena Gomez

Good for her!

As you know, Selena Gomez is taking a break from the spotlight in order to manage "anxiety, panic attacks, and depression" — and now we're learning the 24-year-old has been recovering in a "private and quiet" but "super intense" Tennessee treatment facility in order to focus on self-care.

Take your time, bb!

A source close to the Hands To Myself singer tells Us Weekly:

"Selena is dealing with lupus, but this break is to focus on her mental health. She can go to a very dark place."

Selena Gomez describes her stint in rehab.

Selena Gomez is done talking about her rehab stint in 2014!

The Rise songstress covered GQ's May issue, and as we previously reported, opened up to the glossy about growing up in the spotlight.

Her newly released interview sheds a lot more light on her past, and explains why she chose to enter a treatment facility without a single explanation.

Secretly battling the auto-immune disease lupus, Selly was treated with chemotherapy during her two-week stay.

But when asked about her diagnosis, the 23-year-old provided:

"First off, this is something that everyone always wants to fixate on. I got diagnosed with lupus. My mom had a very public miscarriage. So I had to cancel my tour. I needed time to just be okay. And I was going through leukemia and I went to two different locations for those treatments. It's really frustrating, because I am 100 percent allowed to have that, but I think people just want to have some sort of—"

The writer, Zach Baron, did note that Selena probably meant chemotherapy instead of leukemia.

The 41-year-old posted an image of an open letter to the disease. It began by confronting the illness for all the trouble it has caused her, saying:

"Dear Lupus, You came uninvited like the thief you are. You invaded my body and my life silently and you have no mercy. You have stolen my life's work, my health, my vision of myself. You tear at my relationships with relentless teeth rending and damaging wherever and whenever you can."

But the brunette beauty explained that she's fighting back against the sickness, adding:

"However, you forgot when you planned your war. I am more than my work. Relationships worth having heal [or] stand steady under attack. I continue to rise again and again to reinvent myself. And most important, there is a part of me you can never touch without my permission, my soul. I am God's child and you can never take from me what I refuse to give."

The actress also shared another post of herself standing by a window. She captioned the strong snap with an inspirational poem that read:

In addition to looking smoking, the singer recently opened up further about her fight with lupus, adding that she's still not comfortable sharing too many details:

"It has been overwhelming and the response has been very supportive, which is nice — but it still makes me a little uncomfortable. I waited for the right time to talk about it because I am in a great place and I'm very healthy. I'm not trying to be loud about it: It was time to use my platform to help."

We're so glad to hear she's feeling healthy!

She certainly looked like the very picture of health at her Jingle Ball debut!

Despite some issues, the 23-year-old also admitted that 2015 was a good year overall:

"[2015 was] a good 8 [out of 10]. A lot of ups and downs, but they helped shape who I am."

We think that professionally this has definitely been an AH-Mazing year for Selenita!

May 2015 be twice as good!
