Why is Selena Gomez‘s new album taking so much longer than we all thought it would? Now we know!

In a recent interview, the 25-year-old “Wolves” singer — who just announced she’ll be starring in the new “Doctor Dolittle” movie alongside Tom Holland — revealed the real reason why her upcoming album has been so delayed with a raw and honest explanation: she just isn’t ready yet.

Selena is willing to take all the time she needs to feel confident in the music she puts out into the world, and we’re so here for it! No rush, girl!

“I don’t feel confident enough in where my music is yet. If that takes 10 years, then it takes 10 years. I don’t care. Right now I just want to be super intentional with all of the things I’m doing.”
