Ellen then probed Gomez to rate herself on a scale of 1 to 10, on how she has dealt with the pressures of maturing into a young adult.

"I'm a seven," she replied. "I feel like I have been doing this for so long that people are like, 'Be yourself, be yourself,' and I'm still trying to figure out who that is. I know I'm not perfect, but I know that I have a lot of people that support me and love me. I don't want to let anyone down so I just try to be the best I can be. It's awkward being 20."
