For the past few weeks, Cyrus has been hosting a virtual talk show on Instagram Live in order to give fans hope during the coronavirus pandemic. The show has allowed her to meet so many new celebs, reconnect with old friends, and stay connected with family members who are far away quarantining. Cyrus has invited everyone from Ellen DeGeneres and Paris Hilton, to Alicia Keys and Jimmy Fallon on the show. Many of Cyrus' guests have also been former Disney Channel stars, like Demi Lovato and Hilary Duff.
In Cyrus' final Bright Minded convo with Gomez, the stars had an emotional discussion about mental health.
After opening up about her experience with anxiety and depression, Gomez revealed she has bipolar disorder. "After years of going through a lot of different things, I realized that I was bipolar," Gomez revealed, adding how her diagnosis helped her learn how to ask for help. "When I go to know more information, it actually helps me. It doesn’t scare me once I know it. I think people get scared of that," she explained.
Growing up in Texas, Gomez said it was "not known to talk about your mental health," but over time, she has learned to open up more to others, and to listen to them in return.
"I think talking through what you're feeling is extremely helpful," she said. "Sometimes I have to feel it, sometimes I've got to cry it out and release it, and just take a deep breath."
