Watch out, world! Selena Gomez is feeling empowered.

After a rough patch of romance drama with sometimes-boyfriend Justin Bieber, a falling out with pal Taylor Swift and a trip to rehab, the 21-year-old star has let her Instagram followers know she’s ready to come back with a vengeance – and a bikini-ready bod.

“Taking my power back.. can’t wait to show you where I’ve been,” she captioned a pic of herself sporting a tiny yellow bikini, sitting in the waves on Tuesday. “I love y’all. Ps, I still obsess over pickles.”

And the “Come and Get It” singer was feeling inspirational on Sunday as well.

Selena posted a photo of a screengrab from Oprah’s “Lifeclass” with Bishop T.D. Jakes, with a quote from the pastor, which read, “You can’t be who you’re going to be and who you used to be at the same time.”
