Selena Gomez has just done a bunch more press in London surrounding her new album, including one interview where she opens up about Taylor Swift's emotional reaction to hearing her new break up songs about Justin Bieber, describing 'abuse' and 'emotional chaos' as things no longer in her life.

Speaking to KISS UK, Selena said: "I’ll never forget when I did play the video for ‘Lose You to Love Me’ and ‘Look at Her Now’ at her house with her parents, and it was one of the coolest experiences because I’ve been friends with her for over a decade and love her family as well so I was like, 'Do you just maybe see the video?' and she’s like, 'Amazing, of course.' It was so hysterical. She just started turning off every single light off in the kitchen. And I was like, 'This is not that intense, Taylor.'
"And then she played it and her and her mum just started crying," she continued. "Like, just tears and tears and all of a sudden, it stopped, and it’s going to make me cry thinking about it because it wasn’t about how great the song was—which is a lot, coming from her—it was just that they had been on that journey with me intimately, and they were crying because of how proud they were for me stepping into a whole new era of my life and it not involving the horrible things—the abuse, the emotional chaos."
"It felt like I had a huge sigh of relief and to see her and her mum feel that way, it was very sweet. It’s like an older sister and an aunt proud of their [friend]. It felt great to have people I love see it as that."
Back in October, Selena opened up about Justin moving on so fast with Hailey Baldwin without referencing her famous ex by name. "It would be stupid of me if I didn’t acknowledge what I had felt because it would be inauthentic, and that’s everything I claim to be and do [being authentic]," she told Ryan Seacrest. "I know there are thousands of people, men and women, who have felt this feeling, and it’s extremely real, and on top of the social media and everything, it doesn’t matter if you’re in my position or if you’re in someone’s because you’re always going to somehow find this negative space. It’s just that’s what—that’s why I have to be careful, and I just have to take steps back and just focus on what I’m doing and no one else.”
