Gomez previously said in the April issue of Vogue that she was considering retiring from music after the release of her next album.

In her interview with Elle, Gomez said she plans to make more music.

"I don't think I'll ever quit making music," she said.

Gomez said, however, that she still feels she is constantly trying to prove herself as an artist.

"I'm not saying I want a Grammy. I just feel like I'm doing the best I can, and it's all about me. Sometimes, that can really get to me," the star said, adding that music is so personal compared to acting.

"You're pouring yourself out," she said.

In her interview with Vogue, Gomez had voiced frustration following the release of her album Rare. The album features the singles "Lose You to Love Me," "Look at Her Now" and "Rare."

"It's hard to keep doing music when people don't necessarily take you seriously," Gomez said at the time. "I've had moments where I've been like, 'What's the point? Why do I keep doing this?'"

Gomez said she plans to try something "different" on her next album.

"'Lose You to Love Me' I felt was the best song I've ever released, and for some people it still wasn't enough," she said. "I think there are a lot of people who enjoy my music, and for that I am so thankful, for that I keep going, but I think the next time I do an album it'll be different."

Gomez last released Revelación, her first Spanish-language EP, in March.
