Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are back together. As the singer continues work on her new album, fans are wondering if Bieber will serve as inspiration.
According to a new report, the 25-year-old "Wolves" singer confirmed she is working on a new album during a recent interview in Europe, where she's been spending time for the past several days.
“There is no ‘might,’ there is an album,” Gomez confirmed during a Dec. 11 interview with BBC Radio 1.
Gomez first announced she was working on a new album last summer, but after experiencing crippling side effects of Lupus, she pumped the breaks on her career to focus on her mental health. As fans may recall, Gomez officially canceled her Revival World Tour in August and told People magazine that she had been suffering from panic attacks, depression, and anxiety.
Although Gomez made her triumphant return to the spotlight at last year's American Music Awards, her health issues were far from over. This past summer, as she enjoyed a romance with The Weeknd, she found herself in need of a kidney transplant.
“I think it’s fair to say that people know the year I’ve had, and I’ve poured my heart into my music and I wanted it to be fresh," she explained. "It wasn’t really about charts for me, or numbers. It was more just about, what could I creatively do for my music. So, yes, I can successfully say that my inspiration for this next album is in full motion and it will be very soon.”
While Gomez didn't reveal whether Bieber or The Weeknd would serve as inspiration for her new album, they likely will. After all, it was a pretty big deal when Gomez and The Weeknd's romance came to an end, and she quickly reunited with her former boyfriend.
Gomez and Bieber appear to be spending a lot of time with one another in recent weeks, but when it comes to their time face-to-face, it has been limited recently due to Gomez's responsibilities overseas.
As for Gomez's former boyfriend, The Weeknd, he has been keeping a low profile since their split at the end of October. That said, he was spotted in New York City weeks ago, where he was caught making his way out of his former girlfriend Bella Hadid's apartment.
