Selena Gomez spoke very openly and candidly in the new issue of V Magazine:
“I think the next time I have a boyfriend will be much different…which will definitely not be anytime soon,” said to James Franco whom she spoke with during the intimate interview. That’s a growing up kind of thing. I was 18 years old, and it was my first love. The older I get, I’m guarding certain things more.”
Gomez doesn’t address famous ex Justin Bieber by name, but the timeline of their relationship definitely matches up with what the actress is revealing.
“When you’re young and you’re being told so many different things…it almost felt like all we had was each other, like the world was against us, in a way. It was really weird but it was incredible. I would never take it back in a million years. You live and you learn, you know?”
Living such a public life, however, did take a toll on the former Disney Channel actress. In fact, living under a microscope eventually caused “anxiety”.
“There were a few months where I was a little depressed, where I wouldn’t leave my home as much, I think I drove myself crazy for a little bit. It was just easier to say, ‘Hey, do you mind running to the grocery store and picking some stuff up? I don’t want to get photographed.'”
Looking forward to the year ahead, Gomez has nothing but high hopes. Between new movies,new music and a new house, the “Slow Down” singer can’t help but feel pumped for the future.
“I think this year is going to be incredible. I feel the best I’ve ever felt in my life, I’m super stoked that I’ve got some bumps on me, some scars, some bruises. I actually really love that. And I don’t mean that in a morbid way.”
“There was so much going on, you can’t help but have some troubles here and there. I don’t think it’s a smooth process for anyone, and it definitely wasn’t for me.”
