The "Heart Attack" singer stopped by EXTRA recently got news outlets buzzing when it was reported that she was rushed to the emergency room for trouble breathing.
Although the star was sick, she insist's that the whole situation was blown way out of proportion.
"There was an urgent care next to the ER, I just went there because I wasn't feeling good. Yeah, I was pretty sick but I was not rushed to the hospital," she said with a laugh.
Minor hospital stay aside, the former Disney darling has been striving to make her health and well-being a priority these days. So, what prompted the lifestyle change?

The star most recently flaunted her hard work in a bikini snap that revealed her toned abs and legs ... and used her Instagram post to slam the term "thigh-gap."
"I keep hearing this term 'thigh gap' in social media and everything and I feel like when we hear things as women and men too, but specifically women with this thigh gap thing, we start to believe that's what is, what beautiful means, is having this perfect beautiful, unattainable body," she explained.
"If you have one naturally that's great, but for people that don't naturally have it, I just wanted to remind them that you don't need that to feel beautiful," she continued.
