Selena Gomez graces Harper’s BAZAAR’s April cover, and in the interview, she opens up about love, dating, style, and her career.
Selena has been stepping out without Bieber, who she dated for two years before their current state of on-or-off-ness. The attention on the starry pair was doubly magnified. “It was, but that’s not a factor for me because unfortunately you can’t control that,” she says. “To me, love is normal. Of course, you see Jay and Beyoncé and you’re like, ‘Oh, my gosh, they’re perfect for each other,’ but at the end of the day their love is just like everybody else’s love.”
Gomez is sanguine about the single life, adding that she doesn’t get “asked out a lot,” “and when I actually look presentable, I’m at an awards show. It’s not like I’ve wanted to go out and look for someone. I’m not really good at that.”
But that doesn’t mean Gomez is a cynic when it comes to love. “I believe in love—yes, I’m one of those girls,” she says. “Most of my friends believe in love. I went out with Katy Perry last night. She’s so fun and awesome, but it’s cool to see someone older believe in love too. She is all about it, and that’s how I will always be. I believe in stories like, ‘Oh, I met him in Starbucks.’”
On her day to day style: “I do not give a damn what I look like, I don’t,” she says. “I wish I could pay attention because Gwen Stefani, say, looks flawless.” Gomez is also a fan of Rachel Bilson (“the one person I totally love casually”), Gwyneth Paltrow, and Charlize Theron.” She laughs. “Of course, when I’m on red carpets, I’m nervous, sweaty, and weird.”
I’m so glad she’s no longer with Bieber. I think she’s beautiful – and she has a huge career ahead of her!
