Selena Gomez is ready for her next era of music.
The singer attended Variety‘s Hitmakers brunch along with Dua Lipa, Jack Harlow, and others at City Market Social House in Downtown Los Angeles.
Gomez was the recipient of the Hitmakers Film Song of the Year award for “My Mind & Me”, and thanked fans for their support for her Apple TV+ documentary. The hitmaker opened up about her struggle with mental health and her insecurities in the vulnerable documentary.
Going forward, she told the outlet she wanted to move towards happier music.
“I am so happy, and you’re going to be so happy when you hear the music, I promise,” Gomez said. “I want everyone to feel good when they hear the new record.”
