She is back and looking as stunning as ever.

Selena Gomez has returned to social media after a four-month hiatus.

The 26-year-old took to Instagram to pen an emotional post to her fans.

She uploaded three black-and-white photos of herself as she spoke about how she overcame the last year.

She captioned it, ''It’s been awhile since you have heard from me, but I wanted to wish everyone a happy new year and to thank you for your love and support. Last year was definitely a year of self-reflection, challenges, and growth.''

She continued, ''It’s always those challenges which show you who you are and what you are capable of overcoming. Trust me, it’s not easy, but I am proud of the person I am becoming and look forward to the year ahead. Love you all.''

144 million followers obviously happy to have her back

One said, ''Real beauty'' followed by love heart emojis. 

While another wrote, ''My Queen back. We LOVE you, Selena. You're a strong woman.''

A third added, ''I'm soo proud of u and so happy that you are healthy and back. I hope I see you on stage soon. I'm so glad that you know Who u are, and that you're happy with yourself. We all grow and learn. Love you soo much.''

She last posted in September when she said that she was taking a break, partly due to the negative comments she had experienced.

She wrote, ''Taking a social media break. Again. As much as I am grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I am equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given. Kindness and encouragement only for a bit! Just remember- negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings. Obvi.''

It was then reported that she had been admitted to a mental health facility after being hospitalised for an “emotional breakdown”. 

She seems to be getting back to her old self and we are delighted for her – onwards and upwards Selena.

David also shared a similar photo to her Instagram, featuring Selena and Taylor in a cute polaroid photo.

The fellow actress jokingly captioned the shot; "Had a meet and greet for my fans last night. I love you all."

Now THAT is a meet and greet we want to attend.

Only last May Selena told 60,000 fans about her bond with Taylor when she gave a surprise performance of Hands to Myself during Swift’s Reputation Stadium Tour in California.

Speaking about Taylor's care for her, she said;

“This person has never ever judged a single decision I’ve made. She’s always met me where I’ve been,” she said, according to a fan video.

“She’s encouraged me when I’ve had nothing to be encouraged about, and I don’t know if I would be as strong as I am if I didn’t have you and your family because you’ve changed my life,” Gomez added.

WE LOVE THE FRIENDSHIP. Never let it die, gals.

Singer-songwriting sensation Jessie J has announced on Instagram that she is taking a break from social media following the heartbreaking death of her bodyguard.

In the lengthy post, she writes that she would like to focus on being "present" with those whom she loves, citing "some unexpected heavy personal stuff" as the reason for her break. 

"When sadness hits it's important we embrace it, so it doesn't define us. I have to practice on myself what I talk about in stage and in my music too. In a good way."

The Price Tag singer disclosed that her security team member, Dave, passed away very suddenly a few weeks ago. He was part of her team for four years, and the singer described him as "family".

Announcing that the break would be from all social media for a considerable length of time, she finished by writing;

"Want to live in the moment as much as I can and not through my phone. I love you all. Happy new year. The year of living the best life for you!"

She was undeniably close with her bodyguard, Dave. She shared images of him via her Instagram account, describing him as a loving father and a man of immense kindness

She captioned another post;

"I wrote this because I want everyone to remember the man you were. You were a gentle giant with a heart so big everyone felt it. I love you so much. We were supposed to meet for hot chocolate next week. 

"I miss you. I will see you on the other side one day. Rest easy Dave, give your Dad a hug from me"

Selena Gomez looks healthy and refreshed in the first photos of the star since entering a treatment facility for anxiety and depression in October.

The Wolves singer went on a fun field trip to the snow in Big Bear, California, yesterday.

The star was all smiles on her day out with friends, including her former Wizards of Waverly Place co-star Bailee Madison.

Selena wore a black outfit for her outdoor activities, striking a pose with her friends and looking healthier than ever after snow-tubing.

Gomez entered a treatment facility for anxiety and depression last October following her struggle and ongoing issues with Lupus, a disease which caused her to require a kidney transplant in 2017.

After undergoing a trip to hospital in September, the star appeared under a huge amount of strain. 

A source told E! News that Selena "started to feel super overwhelmed" but just a week after entering the treatment centre she was "already feeling better than she did last week."

Since leaving her treatment programme in New York, Selena hasn't made many public outings or appearances.

She utilised dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), a form of cognitive-behavioural psychology, while receiving treatment.

The 26-year-old told Vogue in 2017 that  "DBT has completely changed my life," adding,

"I wish more people would talk about therapy. We girls, we're taught to be almost too resilient, to be strong and sexy and cool and laid-back, the girl who's down. We also need to feel allowed to fall apart."

The former Disney star seems to rely a lot on her friendships for support during times of tough mental and physical health.

During a photoshoot for a campaign, she had her friends join her on set;

"I don't know what I would be without my friends. They've saved my life, they've been there for me through the thick and thin of it all," she said in a video for SGxPUMA.

We're so glad for Selena that she has such loyal friends, and wish her all the best with her health in future.

She's truly inspiring, it can't be easy to discuss mental health under the public eye.

This is the ultimate honour as a daughter-in-law. 

Momma Bieber sent a FAB birthday tweet to Hailey Baldwin, but included one special reference.

The model turned the big 22 on Thursday and chose to spend the day with hubby, Justin and the fam.

Justin's mum, Pattie Mallette clearly thinks Hailey more as an adopted daughter, rather than an in-law.

Wishing her a big happy birthday, she wrote: "Happy Birthday @haileybaldwin!! I LOVE YOU!! I'm SO #THANKFUL to have you as a daughter!!!"

We all know how important it is for us to get along with our significant other's family – so well done, Hailey.

In a video uploaded to Pattie's Insta stories, the couple once again confirmed the rumours that they got hitched in late summer.

You can hear someone saying: "First married birthday," while Justin holds a cake filled with candles. 

But Hailey didn't just have one cake, in another clip, Justin playfully shoves a massive cream cake into the model's face – and to be honest, it looked delicious.

Happy Birthday, Hailey.

“We're told Selena was released days later but had to be re-admitted late last week because her low blood cell count persisted, and it threw Selena into a downward emotional spiral.”

The Met Gala is one of fashion's biggest nights out, with the guest list hand curated by Anna Wintour herself. 

The celebs come out in force, adhering to the theme of the evening and oozing amped up glamour. 

There are always style hits and misses, but this year it was a beauty fluff-up that had everyone talking. 

Selena Gomez stepped onto the Met Gala red carpet in a stunning layered Coach gown, complete with lace accents. 

However, it was her orange, sticky-looking tan that caught the internet's attention.  

Selena looked a little bit too tangoed for her spray tan to be un-clockable, but hey, we've all bee on the receiving end of a liberally laden tanning mitt, haven't we?

Selena Gomez is decidedly one of the most stunning creatures on the planet. 

While some may argue that Selena perpetuates standardised beauty ideals, the singer is taking a stand to show her support for the body positivity movement. 

In a video she shared to her Instagram page, Selena showcases her friends enjoying a boat trip in Sydney, seemingly totally by body shame. 

 

A post shared by Selena Gomez (@selenagomez) on

The post speaks out against the cycle of shame and comparison many people find themselves in when they feel body negative. 

'The beauty myth- an obsession with physical perfection that traps modern woman in an endless cycle of hopelessness, self consciousness, and self-hatred as she tries to fulfil society’s impossible definition of flawless beauty,' she captioned the post. 

'I chose to take care of myself because I want to, not to prove anything to anyone.'

The self-love advocate has been through a lot in the past 12 months, and is celebrating her body for it's strength after surviving an essential kidney transplant surgery.

Selena Gomez serves as such a powerful role model for fans of all ages, largely because of her honesty about her own mental health.

The 25-year-old took a career break in 2016 after experiencing depression and anxiety as side effects of her recent lupus diagnosis, showing the importance of being attentive to our mental wellbeing.

The singer's struggle with her mental health won't have some picture-perfect movie moment when it all dissipates, Selena said in a recent interview with Harper's Bazaar.

 

A post shared by Selena Gomez (@selenagomez) on

'I’ve had a lot of issues with depression and anxiety, and I’ve been very vocal about it, but it’s not something I feel I’ll ever overcome,' the Wizards of Waverly Place actress told Harper's Bazaar.

'There won’t be a day when I’m like, 'Here I am in a pretty dress—I won!' I think it’s a battle I’m gonna have to face for the rest of my life, and I’m okay with that because I know that I’m choosing myself over anything else.'

The pop star is making her personal well-being her central focus in 2018, saying: 'I’m starting my year off with that thought.'

 

A post shared by Selena Gomez (@selenagomez) on

'I want to make sure I’m healthy. If that’s good, everything else will fall into place.'

Considering how young much of her fan base is, Selena is definitely stepping away from the picture perfect facade many celebrities use, and showing fans the reality of her mental health battle can only be a positive.
