What’s the best way to handle a breakup? Dance the night away! And that’s exactly what Selena Gomez is doing in her recently leaked song “Rule The World.”

“Our love was made to rule the world. You came and broke the perfect girl,” sings the 20-year-old starlet over an upbeat, synthy dance track. “Forget you ever knew my name. Just go away.” Hmm…I wonder who she could be singing about! Here are 4 other Selena-inspired ways to get over your pesky ex.

+ Get A Puppy

Puppies are the perfect relationship alternative. They offer cuddles and companionship without the unnecessary ex drama or late night Chipotle burrito farts. When Selena found the cutest puppy ever wandering Puerto Rico on it’s own, she took it to Island Dog. Island Dog is a nonprofit organization devoted to rescuing as many of the 200,000 street dogs in Puerto Rico as possible, and Selena encourages her followers to support their mission by donating or adopting.

+ Volunteer

Your ex went to dinner with someone else, and that really sucks for you, but did you know that 300 million children go to bed hungry every night? Volunteering is a great way make your breakup problems seem miniscule. Selena supports various UNICEF initiatives to improve the lives of children around the world. Above, she talks about her involvement with UNICEF’s Tap Water Project.

+ Work Out

Don’t sweat your ex; sweat at the gym instead! Working out is a great way to relieve stress. If the thought of running and lifting makes you cringe, try dancing, hiking, or other activities that combine exercise and entertainment. Selena recently released this dance vid with friends. Verrrrry interesting song choice, too…
