During a Q&A with Thrive Global on Wednesday, Selena Gomez discussed her three months away from the lime light -- and said during that time she went without her cell phone for a whopping 90 days. Wow!

In the Q&A, Selena was asked about her cell phone and she said: “I recently took 90 days off."

She added, “During that time I did not have my cellphone. It was the most refreshing, calming, rejuvenating feeling. Now I rarely pick up my phone, and only limited people have access to me.”

In response to a question about when she last felt burned out, she said, “Three months ago, before I took a hiatus to take care of myself.” 

In August, The 24-year-old announced that she was taking time off to deal with “anxiety, panic attacks and depression." At the time, the hit maker released a statement that said, “I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off."

Justin Bieber's ex really did make some major changes -- she shipped herself off to a religious-based Tennessee treatment facility and got some serious help. And it looks like it really did help!

In the Thrive Global interview, the singer, who stole the show at the AMAs with her raw acceptance speech, said “staying healthy (mentally, physically, emotionally) and learning new things” gives her energy.

She also says that does a lot of self care which involves “self-affirmations in cooking or napping!” 

The inspiration singer also shared a quote that gives her strength in tough times: “You are not what happened to you; you are what you chose to become after what happened.”

Amazingly enough, one of the things that has recently happened to her -- other than winning an AMA for Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist last month -- is that she became the most popular celebrity on Instagram with 103 million followers. Her bestie Taylor Swift is trailing behind her with 93 million.
