SELENA Gomez is excited to take control of her life.

The 21-year-old star, who split from Justin Bieber again after a brief reconciliation last month, says she is taking her power back after jetting off on holiday following a difficult few months, during which cancelled her world tour December, sought treatment in rehab in January and dumped her parents as her managers in April.

The 'Come & Get It' hitmaker shared a picture of herself in a bright yellow bikini looking happy and relaxed on a beach on Instagram, and wrote: "Taking my power back.. can't wait to show you where I've been. I love y'all (sic)."

In a bid to assure her fans that she hasn't completely changed, she jokingly added: 'Ps, I still obsess over pickles."

A source previously revealed that Selena, who recently started going to Church every day, is focusing on writing new music and her best friend, Taylor Swift, is encouraging her to write songs about 'Beauty and a Beat' hitmaker Justin, 20, to help her get over him for good.

The insider said: "Taylor's been encouraging Selena to write down her feelings and emotions, and record."

The 'Spring Breakers' beauty also received some relationship advice from Jennifer Aniston while they were having dinner with their agents at Madeo restaurant in Los Angeles last Saturday (17.05.14).

An eyewitness said: "Jennifer was definitely giving Selena love advice. I overheard both of them say Justin's name and Jennifer was doing most of the talking and Selena was doing a lot of nodding.

"They were pretty much talking to each other the whole time, while the two guys were in their own conversation."
