Selena Gomez is making it perfectly clear that she'll always stay true to herself. The singer revealed that she wasn't always so confident -- she let a guy change her in the past and it was a very painful experience.

"I wasn't myself for a year," Selena says. "I think that was really damaging. I felt like it was me who was always trying to be perfect for him. Everyone around me hated him but I didn't listen. I'd always be well-mannered and go to his favorite restaurants or whatever. There was a point where I lost myself completely. I didn't smile as much, I didn't laugh as much. I wasn't a goofball. I didn't get up and dance like I usually do. And when that one ended, I didn't know where I was. But I got it back and was really happy. My family was happy to have me back."
Now Selena has learned her lesson once and for all. "I think I had to go through it because now I'm the strongest I've been," she says. "I dare someone to try and change me again."
