Whatever works, right? Selena Gomez revealed her bizarre secret to staying healthy during a new interview with Elle magazine published days after her emotional post-rehab speech at the 2016 American Music Awards.

"I'm horrible at discipline when it comes to working out. I'm one of those people who's like, 'Ah, I ran for five minutes. I think I'm good,'" the "Kill Em With Kindness" singer, 24, explained to the magazine, adding that she had been working with trainer Amy Rosoff Davis this past year to get in shape for her tour.

In addition to hikes and pilates, Gomez revealed a very unusual way she likes to stay healthy. "I have a sweat bed, which looks like a burrito that I wrap myself up in, and I sweat for about 45 minutes," she said. "Just little things to kind of keep me healthy and keep me focused."

But what exactly is a sweat bed? "You lay in these beds in a sweatsuit, and they wrap you up and you sweat for 45 minutes and it releases all the toxins of your body, and you kind of feel … kind of the equivalent of a sauna, but it gets your heart rate up, and it gets everything flowing in your body," the entertainer explained. "It's changed my skin, it's kind of changed my body as well, so it feels really good. That's kind of been something that works for me personally."

Gomez admitted that the sweat bed "sounds gross" but insisted, "It feels incredible."

The "Hands to Myself" songstress also revealed that she envies actresses Blake Lively and Rachel McAdams' luscious locks. "I never met [Blake], but I just love her hair," Gomez said. "I think she's got beautiful, effortless hair. I think she's super beachy. I also really love, love, love Rachel McAdams, and the reason why I love her hair is because she can always change it up. … She's kind of classy that way."

Gomez, who checked into rehab in August to focus on her mental health, opened up about her personal struggles during a heartfelt acceptance speech at the AMAs on Sunday, November 20.

"I think it's safe to say most of you know a lot of my life whether I liked it or not," she said on stage after being honored with the award for favorite pop/rock artist. "I had to stop because I had everything and I was absolutely broken inside and I kept it all together enough to where I would never let you down, but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down. … If you are broken, you do not have to stay broken."
