One of the main topics discussed in Selena's IG livestream was the fact that she is clearly still very disappointed in Elle Magazine for misquoting and focusing their printed interview on something totally different than what they talked about. This is the second public declaration she made on the topic. The first was a caption that she copy and pasted on a handful of her Instagram photos earlier this month. "I'm here for you guys and I don't care about the press, I don't care about what people are going to say. I just wanted to do this to talk to you guys," she said. "I just wanted to be real with you, because I don't feel like being on another magazine cover. I don't feel like being on another one ever again. It just doesn't matter."

"Everything I want to say, I can say right here with you guys and I mean that. Like, I try to say things in an interview for an hour, I'm talking to someone and they're just, you know, talking to me and I'm thinking...'it's really good'. You're here, you're at the offices, you're experiencing things and then next thing you know...and its not anyone's fault people just want to get people's attention but I just don't really understand why," she continued.

The brunette also took time to give her fans advice on some personal topics. One fan asked Selena how to deal with depression. The Back to You singer said, "depression was my life for 5 years straight. Depression and anxiety was the forefront of everything that I did in my life. Every single thing, and I would still do it, like, I would make myself have the courage to just keep going."

Another fan asked, "What's your advice on how to forget someone?" The pop star responded saying, "Well you can't really just like forget. It's more just, you have to figure out why you're still holding onto them. Like why do you want to forget them? I think that, that's where you start. Did they hurt you? And if they did and it's not healthy for you to go back or to that though its not good. As far as losing someone, I mean you never do. Sometimes forgetting can be a bad thing, sometimes you need to be reminded of something." Perhaps, a hidden jab at Justin and his new boo, Hailey?

Selena also brought up a few of her best friends that aren't in the entertainment industry saying "they loath the industry sometimes, but they love like what I get to do with my fans and for my fans but all of the other stuff they are protective of me." One fan asked about BFF Taylor Swift, in which Selena said, "she's awesome, I love her, she's amazing. I just talked to her today. She's literally like my big sister. I tell her everything. She's so smart, it freaks me out!"

While the 26-year-old did say it was refreshing to talk to her fans directly, she did add later in the live chat that she felt "pretty weird that I just spent all of this time talking to a phone screen." Overall, she seemed relieved to have a one-on-one interaction with her fans and air out some of things that she has been locking up inside.
