Selena Gomez is currently busy doing back-to-back promotions of her upcoming Hulu series "Only Murders in the Building."

In one of her recent joint interviews with co-star Steve Martin, the pop star set the record straight about her past statement about her Disney career, clarifying that it was said in the "most light-hearted, funny, jokey way."

Earlier this month, while promoting her upcoming Hulu series, the 29-year-old singer joked about being a teen actress.

"I signed my life away to Disney at a very young age, so I didn't know exactly what I was doing," she said at the Television Critics Association press panel, which she attended with Martin and Martin Short. "I was a kid I didn't know what I was doing, I was just running around on set, and now I feel like a sponge and I soak up all the wisdom that I can."

The quote was picked by several news outlets, and while some claimed she was joking, some took the statement seriously, causing some serious confusion among the readers.

Now during her recent joint interview with Radio Times, Gomez clarified that the comment was a joke.

When asked if she had any reluctance about returning to TV, she said "No, definitely not. I was looking for another show to do. And by the way, I'm beyond proud of the work that I did with Disney as well. It kind of shaped who I am in a way."

Her co-star Martin then chimed in. "I have to jump in because I was there when Selena said that [at the TCA] and it was said in the most light-hearted, funny, jokey way," he said.  

The 76-year-old actor continued, "And then I see it gets interpreted – sometimes they'll say she was joking and sometimes they have it as an ominous headline – but it was completely just all in fun. I've signed my life away to Marty Short, you think I like that?"

Gomez added that she had an overall positive experience on the Disney Channel. "I have to say, I'm very lucky," she said. "As a female in my position, I was taken care of and I've only had lovely experiences, so I'm grateful for that."

The "Lose You To Love Me" singer will be making her comeback on television with "Only Murders in the Building." It is a comedy series where she plays one of the residents of an Upper West Side apartment building. She teams up with two of her elderly neighbors to discover the truth behind a neighbor's sudden death.
