She's not ashamed of her struggle!

Selena Gomez is the cover star of the newest issue of Vogue, and the singer talks all about her battle with depression and her discomfort with life in the spotlight.

"Tours are a really lonely place for me. My self-esteem was shot. I was depressed, anxious. I started to have panic attacks right before getting onstage, or right after leaving the stage. Basically I felt I wasn’t good enough, wasn’t capable. I felt I wasn’t giving my fans anything, and they could see it—which, I think, was a complete distortion. I was so used to performing for kids... Suddenly I have kids smoking and drinking at my shows, people in their 20s, 30s, and I’m looking into their eyes, and I don’t know what to say...." she explained.

"What I wanted to say is that life is so stressful, and I get the desire to just escape it. But I wasn’t figuring my own stuff out, so I felt I had no wisdom to share... Maybe I thought everybody out there was thinking, 'This is a waste of time,'" she added.

After a 90-day rehab stay to deal with her issues, she couldn't be more grateful for getting the help she needed.

"You have no idea how incredible it felt to just be with six girls. Real people who couldn’t give two s--ts about who I was, who were fighting for their lives. It was one of the hardest things I’ve done, but it was the best thing I’ve done," she said of her stay at the Tennessee treatment center.

One thing she still struggles with? Social media and living her life in the public eye.

"As soon as I became the most followed person on Instagram, I sort of freaked out. It had become so consuming to me. It’s what I woke up to and went to sleep to. I was an addict, and it felt like I was seeing things I didn’t want to see, like it was putting things in my head that I didn’t want to care about. I always end up feeling like s--t when I look at Instagram. Which is why I’m kind of under the radar, ghosting it a bit," she confessed.

The Texas-born beauty went on to reveal that she sees a therapist five times a week, and has been receiving Dialectical Behavior Therapy, a cognitive behavioral treatment.

"DBT has completely changed my life. I wish more people would talk about therapy. We girls, we’re taught to be almost too resilient, to be strong and sexy and cool and laid-back, the girl who’s down. We also need to feel allowed to fall apart," she noted.

This takes courage!
