August 4, 2017 - 6:15am

In a new cover story with InStyle magazine, Selena Gomez opens up about her relationship with The Weeknd and how she takes care of her mental health.

The singer says she considers The Weeknd - real name Abel Tesfaye - her best friend, and that she's stronger in this relationship than ever before.

"It's really important for me to love and nourish my friends and family and to make sure that I never get influenced by a guy," Selena says. "I've wanted to be in a strong headspace for years, and I really wasn’t. Before, I was so young and easily influenced, and I'd feel insecure."

She adds, "You want someone to add to your life, not to complete you, if that makes sense. I'm lucky because he's more of a best friend than anything else." Selena also says she keeps up her mental health by regularly attending therapy. "I believe in that and talking about where you are," she says. "But I'm in a really, really healthy place."
