Selena Gomez’s best friend is getting married, and this week the Back To You singer is enjoying a bachelorette trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. After two hospital visits, an emotional breakdown, and some time in treatment last fall, Gomez appears to be doing well and living her best life with her girlfriends.
Earlier this week, Gomez posted a slideshow of pics of her and the girls on the beach, and she was rocking a white swimsuit. In one photo, the 26-year-old singer is smiling as she poses with the bride-to-be, Courtney Barry.
In another, Gomez, Barry, and pals Ashley Cook and Raquelle Stevens stood in front of the shore.
Gomez returned to social media just one month ago, and the Cabo pics are her fourth Instagram post since completing treatment.
On January 14th, Gomez posted a heartfelt message on Instagram, letting fans know that she was back and is “proud of the person” she is becoming. She also wrote that she is looking forward to the year ahead.
“It’s been a while since you have heard from me, but I wanted to wish everyone a happy new year and to thank you for your love and support. Last year was definitely a year of self-reflection, challenges, and growth,” Gomez wrote.
The singer/actress has been spending a lot of time with friends and family and getting back to normal life since returning home from treatment. Gomez took a snowy trip with friends before Christmas, has been photographed hiking in Los Angeles, and she is also taking Pilates classes.
As Radar Online points out, in her new pictures, Gomez definitely looks happier and healthier than she has in months. She showed off her healthy weight gain and looks curvier, which fans immediately noticed.
One fan wrote that Gomez was a “real and amazing girl,” and another Instagram user said, “You look happy. That makes me happy.”

Mood lol (I was looking at myself in the mirror -like an idiot!) Update: taking a social media break. Again. As much as I am grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I am equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given. Kindness and encouragement only for a bit! Just remember- negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings. Obvi.
Gomez was in the hospital twice last October because of a low white blood cell count, a common side effect for kidney transplant patients. During the second hospital visit, Gomez had a panic attack, which led to her going to treatment for mental health issues and alcohol abuse.
The singer has reportedly hired a life coach, and she is also seeing a psychiatrist and attending therapy. Sources say that Gomez is doing everything she can to stay healthy.
As for those Zac Efron rumors, fans continue to ship that romance after he followed Selena Gomez on Instagram. With his history of dating women he has worked with (he starred in Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising with Gomez), there is still hope that these two could actually become a thing.
