Miley Cyrus had a very special guest on her IG Live show that she’s been hosting while in quarantine at home. None other than old friend Selena Gomez joined her on the platform and the two had a blast chatting and catching up.
At the same time, however, Selena also used this opportunity to get candid about her mental health, revealing that she is bipolar.
As it turns out, it hasn’t been long since the singer found that out but still felt like it was time to share all about it with the world.
Fans were touched by her bravery, even though Selena has always been very open about her mental health struggles.
She told Miley during the show that: ‘Recently, I went to one of the best hospitals in the world — or definitely in America — McClean [Hospital, in Massachusetts], and I discussed that after going through years of a lot of different things, I realized that I was bipolar. And so, when I know more information it really helps me; it does not scare me once I know it. And I think that people get scared of that.. I’m from Texas, where it’s not known to talk about your mental health. You’ve got to seem cool.’

It did not take fans long to react to the confession, commenting supportive and loving things like: ‘selena has been through so much, she is bipolar, has been battling with anxiety, depression and lupus and on top of that she gets bullied online everyday by people who have no idea about her struggles. she’s one of the strongest women I’ve ever known. I’m so proud of her!!’
Similarly, someone else also mentioned all those same struggles before stressing that none of them have managed to bring her down, which can only mean that she is ‘the strongest person ever!’
