After a year that included making up and breaking up with Justin Bieber, canceling the remainder of her Stars Dance World Tour and a stint in rehab, Selena Gomez is ready to be in power once again. Naturally, she’s doing it in a bikini on Instagram — it is summer, after all.
“Taking my power back … can’t wait to show you where I’ve been,” the former “Wizards of Waverly Place” star captions the photo of herself in the sand. “I love y’all. Ps, I still obsess over pickles.” At least she still has pickles. What kind of world would it be without those?
Now that she’s got her power back, it’ll be interesting to see how she shows it to her fans. Perhaps through another album, though initially Gomez said she wanted to continue expanding her acting career as well, after starring in the critically-acclaimed “Spring Breakers.”

You may have seen him as a pro-shark protester in "Sharknado 3." His eventual memoir will be called "You're Wrong, Here's Why..." TV words to live by: "I'm a firm believer that sometimes it's right to do the wrong thing."
