"She was actually at my house the other day and we were sitting by the fire and I was talking about relationships and business in my life and she just kind of looked at me and was like, 'Selena, if you're the smartest person in the room, I think you're going to be in the wrong room,'" Gomez explained. "She thinks I should constantly surround myself with people who are going to make me better, that are going to challenge and motive me."

She added, "It kind of stuck to me. I want to surround myself with those people."
