Selena Gomez Reveals She Was Diagnosed With Bipolar Disorder

For Selena, this realization wasn't scary or upsetting — it was a tool.

"When I ... know more information it actually helps me, it doesn't scare me once I know it. I think people get scared of that, and I've seen it, I've seen some of it in my own family where I'm like, what's going on?" Selena said. "I just feel like, when I finally said what I was gonna say, I wanted to know everything about it and it took the fear away."
