In Harper’s BAZAAR‘s March cover story, the “Wolves” singer opens up about focusing on her “well-being” in 2018.

Though Gomez has had plenty of new hits — including “It Ain’t Me,” “Fetish” and “Wolves” — since she released her last album Revival in 2015, the entertainer, 25, says she’s deliberately taking her time on her next record.

“My next album has been forever in the making. When people ask me why, I’m honest about it: It’s because I haven’t been ready,” said Gomez, who underwent a kidney transplant last year. “I mean, point-blank, I don’t feel confident enough in where my music is yet. If that takes 10 years, then it takes 10 years. I don’t care. Right now I just want to be super intentional with all of the things I’m doing.”

“I have a complex relationship with Instagram, to say the least,” Gomez admitted. “It has given me a voice amid all the noise of people trying to narrate my life for me and allows me to say, ‘Hey, I’m gonna post this, and this is gonna take care of the 1,200 stories that people think are interesting but actually aren’t, and aren’t even true.’ So it empowers me in that way because it’s my words and my voice and my truth. The only thing that worries me is how much value people our age place on social media. It’s an incredible platform, but in a lot of ways it’s given young people, myself included, a false representation of what’s important. So, yeah, it’s a complex relationship. Probably one of my most difficult relationships.”
