Selena Gomez lands the June cover of InStyle magazine, and doesn’t she look great? She’s definitely growing into a beautiful young woman. I love the photos that go with the article. We saw pictures from this shoot several months ago, but it’s nice to see them in the magazine.
The interview that goes with is somewhat interesting. It’s obviously done before she got back together with Justin Bieber.
She’s looking to push boundaries: “This is a weird transition for me. I want to keep pushing myself so I never feel settled. I don’t really know if it’s going to end up working. I’m stressed out most of the time.” Gomez would like to eventually say so long to music to concentrate solely on acting. She imagines a career modeled on stars like Shia LaBeouf, Jennifer Lawrence, and Natalie Portman–actors who are continually reinventing themselves, she says.
Her new album includes a breakup song: “Love Will Remember” mournfully chronicles the end of a relationship, and Gomez makes it crystal clear that she did indeed write it about Bieber. “That’s the most personal track on the record, for sure. I think it’s a sweet way of releasing it. It’s not an aggressive approach to what people are probably expecting. I’m sure he’ll love it too.” ONE MORE PIC – AND MORE AFTER THE JUMP!
How to date in the public eye: “I’m from Texas, so I should be married with children already. I’m in love with love and totally believe in marriage, but that’s not even on my radar right now. I am not putting energy into dating. It’s uncomfortable that everywhere I go, people know. I don’t like that. But Justin and I never really focused on the attention. You can’t help who you date. So I wouldn’t swear off that or say that’s what I want again. I don’t know. I’m a kid, and a breakup is normal. I have to go through the emotions and feel it out. I’m doing my own thing, being with my friends, and he’s doing very well too. You have to have honesty when you’re living this lifestyle because of the distance imposed when working–you are separated so often. You have to be super-honest and open. That is key.”
On her “sister,” Taylor Swift: “We dated the Jonas Brothers at the same time and ended up becoming best friends. She’s the one I call when I’m having any sort of sadness. She’s very nurturing and protective.”
On her KMart clothing line: “I remember when I was younger and kids in school would be wearing $40 sweaters and other things I couldn’t buy. I wanted to make a line that was supercute and affordable, things a 12-year-old could wear and I could wear too.” She also co-designs a sports-inspired line,
On her style: “I’m on the petite side and I don’t think I’m curvy, but maybe I’ll grow into it. I like to wear things that are fitted because they give me more shape. I like to show a little bit of skin in a nice way. The idea of trying to get on a best-dressed list stresses me out. I’m so nervous. I love picking out clothes, and it would be a blast to just play dress-up all the time.”
I think she’s growing into a beautiful young woman, and I think she comes across really well in an interview.
