Although the singer and actress has had an amazing year so far and is always one to watch on every red carpet, she was not always so confident, as she checked into the Dawn at The Meadows rehab facility in Wickenburg, Arizona in 2014.

According to Gomez, "This is something that everyone always wants to fixate on. I got diagnosed with lupus. My mom had a very public miscarriage. So I had to cancel (13 dates on) my (Stars Dance) tour. I needed time to just be OK."

Gomez, who disclosed in October 2015 that she had been diagnosed with lupus, explained to the men's magazine that she received chemotherapy treatments at two different locations for the chronic inflammatory disease, but finds it "really frustrating" to still be talking about that sensitive time in her life.

"My past seems to be way more fascinating for people than my future, which bums me out," says the singer. Here are five more revelations from her candid interview:

1. She’s still trying to navigate being in the spotlight:

"We're easy targets," explains Gomez, who broke out at age 15 while starring as Alex Russo in Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place. "Every single kid who was brought up like this is an easy target. It's disgusting, because it's interesting to grown adults that these kids go through weird things because they're figuring out, 'Do I like this? Do I love this? Maybe I love this person. Oh, I'm exposed to this, people are reporting my every move and this and that because of Instagram and Twitter and you can find out everything.'"

2. Despite being 23 she still doesn’t seem to get the grown-up roles she wants:

"I'm young, and I look younger," she dishes. "So the roles that I want to go for -- it's all about how the face is. I can play like I'm 16 still. Doesn't really work for the things I want to do. I want to have an experience that I would go a little bit stir-crazy with. I like people pushing a little bit."

3. She's still been able to land a cool new gig with Kevin Spacey's production company:

"(It's) Entourage meets Girls," Gomez explains. "What girls deal with, even the perception of religion and things like that, how it affects you, and how impressionable Hollywood is."

4. She’s not about the fame:

"(When you're famous,) it's either of two extremes," Gomez claims. "Either you're going to succumb to it and be surrounded by all the noise and enjoy it and get the rush from it, or you're going to be so far off of it because you don't trust anyone or think any of it's genuine. That's the girl that I am."

5. An A-lister thought she was a valet:

"P. Diddy gave me his valet ticket once," she reveals. "Because he thought I was the valet lady. But I don't care -- I actually laughed hysterically when it happened."
