Selena Gomez calls Justin Bieber breakup 'best thing that ever happened to me'

Selena Gomez opened up about her breakup with Justin Bieber, describing it as the “best thing that ever happened” to her.

In the pop star’s new documentary entitled “Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me,” released on Apple TV+ on Friday, the singer got candid about the end of her relationship with Bieber in 2018.

“It’s about more than a lost love,” she said of her 2019 hit song, “Lose You To Love Me,” widely believed to be about her split with Bieber. “It’s me learning to choose myself, to choose life, but also hoping that people can find grace and peace in that too. The song is about knowing that you completely lost every part of who you are just to rediscover yourself again.”

Gomez and Bieber had an on-again, off-again romance that spanned from 2012 to 2018. Shortly after they split for good, Bieber married Hailey Baldwin.

“Everything was so public,” she said of the split being heavily in the public eye. “I felt haunted by a past relationship that no one wanted to let go of. Then I just moved past it, and I wasn’t afraid anymore.”

“I feel like I had to go through the worst possible heartbreak ever and then just forgetting everything at the drop of the hand, it was really confusing,” she continued. “But I just think that needed to happen, and ultimately it was the best thing that ever happened to me.”
