Selena Gomez took the high road in referencing her ex’s career Revival.

The 23-year-old actress and singer chose to praise her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber when she was recently asked about his career comeback.

Gomez and Bieber, 21, split close to three years ago but their association is unavoidable.

“While people were writing that I was stupid for being in it, this is what I always saw in him, she told the New York Times. “I’m like, duh!”

Gomez turned heartbreak into inspiration with the release of her 2014 single “The Heart Wants What It Wants” as well as a few of her new songs featured on her upcoming Revival album, slated for an Oct. 9 release.

And the former Disney star opened up about another high-profile ex, recalling her past romance with Nick Jonas as “puppy love.”

The pair dated briefly in 2008, after he split from Miley Cyrus.

“He is lovely,” Gomez shared with Capital FM. “I do have a love for him, for sure. That, to me, was like puppy love – it was very sweet.”
