About a year ago, the "Hands To Myself" singer revealed she has lupus -- a chronic autoimmune disease that can damage the body for many years.
She told People this past summer,
I've discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges.
The star took time off to re-evaluate her life and seek professional treatment. But now, fans are rejoicing on social media because Selena Gomez might be making her musical comeback.
On Thursday night, songwriter Justin Tranter added an Instagram of Selena Gomez putting on makeup in a recording studio. He captioned the photo,
Music and love.
HMMMM, DID SOMEONE SAY "MUSIC?"
Fans flooded the Instagram with positive comments. They said things like "soon" and "Christmas came early" to share their excitement over the idea of Selena making music again.
Nick Jonas also commented on the photo, making the entire thing a million times more legit. He added an emoji of two hands being raised in celebration.
What a cutie. His reaction is basically all of us. You have such a way with words, Nick Jonas.
Selena Gomez first returned to the spotlight in November at the American Music Awards where she addressed her mental health struggle during her acceptance speech.
Selena -- while holding back tears -- told her fans,
In 2014, this stage was the first time I was actually, authentically 100 percent honest with all of you. I think it's safe to say that most of you know a lot of my life, whether I liked it or not. And… I had to stop. Because I had everything, and I was absolutely broken inside. And I kept it all together enough to where I would never let you down, but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down.
She concluded the speech by thanking her followers for their love and loyalty. It was a powerful and beautiful moment.
Thank you for your honesty, Selena. We're looking forward to listening to whatever you have in store for 2017.
