While appearing on Hoda Kotb’s podcast Making Space, alongside Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy, to speak about their mission to destigmatize mental illness, the pop star, 31, talked about feeling ‘freedom’ in sharing her story.

When asked how she defines herself, the Rare Beauty founder said she thinks of herself as someone who is a ‘loving’ and ‘caring’ person that ‘just genuinely wants to do something to help out someone.’

‘I think, life can get distracting, and there’s so much noise,’ she told Kotb. ‘Titles don’t scare me anymore because I claimed my own story. I told my own story. And, I felt freedom from it.’

The chat appeared to be taken on the same day that Gomez hosted her third annual Rare Beauty Mental Health Summit as she was wearing the same ensemble.

During the special event for her Rare Impact fund, the Lose You to Love Me hitmaker revealed her company had raised $7 million for mental health causes.

Gomez said the summit left her feeling ‘inspired by the next generation’ and ‘filled with so much hope.’

‘Mental health means so much to me and I’m honored we get to share this mission with the world together,’ she told fans. ‘Thank you to everyone who joined us and continues to use their voice for good!’
