Selena Gomez secretly completed a two-week rehab stint in January, sources confirm to E! News.

The 21-year-old "Come & Get It" singer was admitted to Dawn at the Meadows on Jan. 5. "Selena voluntarily spent time at Meadows but not for substance abuse," a rep for Gomez tells People.

In December 2013, Gomez shocked fans by cancelling the Australian leg of her Stars Dance tour. "It has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be," she said in a statement.

A source told E! News that the pop princess "had been working non-stop for six years. She hit a wall."

"She doesn't like to say no, but she just reached a point where she needs a minute. She is not having a breakdown," the source said. "She wants to be the healthiest that she can be and this means taking a little break. But she is fine. She is OK."

After leaving treatment in January, Gomez hit up the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

She currently graces Seventeen's March 2014 "Power" issue. "If you're able to look yourself in the mirror every day with the decisions that you make, that's where power starts," Gomez tells the magazine.

"And sometimes you'll have moments where you feel weak, but they're supposed to encourage you. They're supposed to push you and motivate you. I feel like that's something that I always try to do is look at myself in the mirror and really what I've done and every day what decision I wanna make."
