Selena Gomez covers NYLON Magazine, talks Bieber

Shortly before Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber split, she sat down with NYLON magazine, and talked about her on-again-off-again boyfriend, Justin Bieber. The actress admitted she had optimism when it came to their future.

“I’m having fun,” the 20-year-old said. “At the end of the day, love is such a normal thing, and everyone deals with it. Just because it’s a different lifestyle doesn’t change the meaning of what I’ve been raised on, which is fairy tales.”

Whoops.

Gomez may find her happy ending — but it won’t be with Bieber, 18. Luckily, her fellow unlucky-in-love pal Taylor Swift, 22, understands what she’s going through. “We both experienced the same things at the same time,” Gomez said. “But we’ve never once talked about our industry. She just became the person I’d go to for an issue with my family or boyfriend. It’s so hard to trust girls, so I’m lucky to have her.”

If the “Love You Like a Love Song” singer seems innocent, it’s because she is. While filming the upcoming movie Spring Breakers (directed by controversial Kids scribe Harmony Korine), Gomez was able to do things “that I would get so much hate and in trouble for,” she said of the racy caper, costarring Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and James Franco. “I had to have someone show me how to hold the cigarette.”

“I definitely felt that with my first stepping-out role, I should choose something that I could understand a little more. I was really nervous, but Harmony took a chance with me,” Gomez told NYLON. “He said, ‘You live in this bubble, and I’m going to take you out of it, but you have to trust me.’”

The former Disney Channel star is eager to explore more mature roles, but she hopes to do so without alienating her target audience. “I’ve told parents, ‘Make sure you don’t let your kids see Spring Breakers,’ because with the title, you could think it would be cute or something,” she said. “I know it isn’t for the younger generation I have following me, but I’m also about to be 21. I felt like it was my little side project that I was super excited about, that would be under the radar.”

Selena Gomez covers the December issue of Glamour Magazine!

Selena Gomez covers the December 2012 issue of Glamour Magazine, and if you ask me, she’s never looked more beautiful. She’s transitioning beautifully from a child actress into a young woman. (Do I sound as old as I feel?) The 20-year-old sat down with Glamour to talk about her life in Texas, and where she’d be if she didn’t go down this celebrity path.

On her childhood in Texas, being raised by a single mom: “I definitely didn’t appreciate [my upbringing] when I was little. I was frustrated that my parents weren’t together and never saw the light at the end of the tunnel where my mom was working hard to provide a better life for me. I’m terrified of what I would have become if I’d stayed there. I’m sure I’d have two children by now.”

More on Texas: “I love the people, and I’m glad I grew up there. It’s because of [my mom] that I can do things on my own. I like being professional. I like showing up on time. I like being good to people, and I know that I’m reflecting her at the end of the day.”

Looking back on her 15-year-old self: “I was so scared and so shy back then. I mean, I grew up in one of the biggest high schools in the world, and that’s the Disney Channel. Everybody was falling in love with each other or not liking each other, and it was exhausting. I was the shy one in the corner. Now I’m so opinionated, and I don’t have time for the cattiness. I have good people around me, and I’m glad I’m at the place I’m in. I wish I was there back then.”

On Taylor Swift: “I actually did talk to Taylor last week, and we were like, ‘I don’t even remember the last time I saw you,’ which is really unfortunate. But if [life] gets too dire, I fly to Taylor or I fly home or I fly to Justin.”

On negativity: “If I had let all of the negative stuff affect me, I don’t think I would be satisfied with the person I am now. That’s what I tell my fans: If you’re miserable with everything going on in school, that is so not going to matter the moment you leave. My mom always told me, ‘Just turn the other cheek and keep moving forward.’ That’s something I’ve always done, and now I look back and I have no regrets.”

She sounds very level-headed, don’t you think? Do we really think that she and Justin are still together? Haven’t seen them together in quite a while…

Selena Gomez debuts a new tattoo!

Selena Gomez has a new tattoo! The Disney actress added a tattoo – the Roman numeral LXXVI (the number 76) – on the nape of her neck. Selena had the work done by Bang Bang, a tattoo artist to the stars, in his Lower East Side studio in NYC.

What’s the meaning behind the inscription?

“The tattoo was a tribute to a family member who she said means a lot to her,” the tattoo artist told The Daily Mail. “Selena was nervous it might have been painful, so she held her best friend’s hand the whole time. But she did a great job.”

After sharing a snap of Gomez admiring her new tat in a mirror on his Facebook, Bang Bang tweeted, “I hope u love it girl! @selenagomez.”

The A-list tattoo artist has inked the likes of Swizz BeatzChris BrownRihannaKaty Perry and Gomez’sSpring Breaker costar, Vanessa Hudgens. Bang Bang has even worked with Gomez’s boyfriend, having drawn the word “Believe” on Bieber’s inner elbow.

And this isn’t the first tat for Gomez, 20. The singer-actress — whose animated film, Hotel Transylvania, debuted this weekend at No. 1 with $43 million — has small musical note on her wrist, which was inked by Louie Gomez (no relation) at Hollywood’s Under the Gun tattoo parlor in February.

What do you think of her new ink?
