Selena Gomez Shares Bikini Pic, Declares She's Taking Her Power Back

2014 has not been kind to Selena Gomez, with a stint in rehab, pregnancy rumors, reports of health issues, and her perplexing choice of on-again off-again boyfriend, Justin Bieber.

But that's all about to change, because the 21-year-old posted a bikini photo on her Instagram account on Tuesday, May 20, and proclaimed, "Taking my power back.. can't wait to show you where I've been. I love y'all."

We're not exactly sure what she means by that, but as a post script she added, "I still obsess over pickles," so you know it was a really serious declaration.
