Selena Gomez arrives to the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards at Microsoft Theater on August 30, 2015 in Los Angeles, California. 

Selena Gomez is all grown up.

The singer spoke with Refinery29 and opened up about her music, Justin Bieber, and being comfortable with a sexy image.

“It's not something where I'm like, let me glorify what I do in the bedroom," she explained. "But I think I have a very healthy perspective on my sexuality. It's part of being an adult, and I'm still figuring out how to be one of those, too."

On the Bieber relationship, she shared that "of course I got my heart broken," but said that she -- and he -- are now in a good place. 

?“At this point, there is no anger," she said. "There's closure in a very good, healthy way. We’ve seen each other. I'm always encouraging and I am proud of his journey. I think people are making it out to be something that is more tragic than it really was. We grew up together. We both made mistakes. That's it."

As for her fellow former Disney stars like Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato, there have often been feud rumors between the women, but Gomez says that's in the past. "Everyone has found their identity in a really interesting way. We didn't come out as these robots that looked and dressed the same. We had to go through our own shit. At the end of the day, it’s respecting every female artist’s choice in how she expresses herself, because that’s what she wants.”
