The fan continued: "She has a right to react to her OWN life. either way she’s [fire emoji]."

Another TikTokker replied: "Everyone is commenting their own interpretation of what Selena’s [sad face emoji] means. To me, it’s straight and simple- she AGREES with what you are saying."

A team of cameras followed Selena and documented her life over the past six years, which showed her struggles with health, mental well-being, and how she coped with her very public split from Justin Bieber.

Selena revealed in My Mind and Me that she felt “haunted” by a past relationship and how it unfolded so publicly.

"I feel like I had to go through the worst possible heartbreak ever and then just forgetting everything at the drop of the hand, it was really confusing," she said in the Apple TV+ project.

She went on to call the split “the best thing that ever happened” to her, saying that it "needed to happen".
