The 'Heart Wants What It Wants' hitmaker returned to her childhood home in Grand Prairie, Texas over the weekend and even took a look in to see what her home is like now.

She wrote on Instagram: "The home I grew up in, from birth to 13 ... (no one was home when I knocked this time lol) I visit this place every chance I get. In many ways it very well could have been better than my life today, but I'm grateful for a voice that can enable change today. Even when I don't know how to do it well or actually want it. I love you Grand Prairie. Thank you. (sic)"

It comes after Selena - who is thought to be dating Justin Bieber again - revealed she is trying to reinvent herself.

She said: "I'm constantly somebody that likes to grow and feel like, 'All right, what can I be better at, what could I do better at, where could my confidence be stronger?' I'm 25, so I feel like I'm going to change a lot and enjoy that ...

"I worked really hard on my music this year and I'm really excited to put it all together. I like to choose to live my life in a way where I want to be weight-free, and I know that's impossible to do because I have a million [eyes] on me right now. But I think it is important to kind of go through your life the way you want and I like to come at things with my best. That's all I know how to do, just give my best."
