Selena Gomez graces HarperÃ¢â¬â¢s BAZAARÃ¢â¬â¢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. Ã¢â¬ÅIt was, but thatÃ¢â¬â¢s not a factor for me because unfortunately you canÃ¢â¬â¢t control that,Ã¢â¬Â she says. Ã¢â¬ÅTo me, love is normal. Of course, you see Jay and BeyoncÃÂ© and youÃ¢â¬â¢re like, Ã¢â¬ËOh, my gosh, theyÃ¢â¬â¢re perfect for each other,Ã¢â¬â¢ but at the end of the day their love is just like everybody elseÃ¢â¬â¢s love.Ã¢â¬Â
Gomez is sanguine about the single life, adding that she doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t get Ã¢â¬Åasked out a lot,Ã¢â¬Â Ã¢â¬Åand when I actually look presentable, IÃ¢â¬â¢m at an awards show. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s not like IÃ¢â¬â¢ve wanted to go out and look for someone. IÃ¢â¬â¢m not really good at that.Ã¢â¬Â
But that doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t mean Gomez is a cynic when it comes to love. Ã¢â¬ÅI believe in loveÃ¢â¬âyes, IÃ¢â¬â¢m one of those girls,Ã¢â¬Â she says. Ã¢â¬ÅMost of my friends believe in love. I went out with Katy Perry last night. SheÃ¢â¬â¢s so fun and awesome, but itÃ¢â¬â¢s cool to see someone older believe in love too. She is all about it, and thatÃ¢â¬â¢s how I will always be. I believe in stories like, Ã¢â¬ËOh, I met him in Starbucks.Ã¢â¬â¢Ã¢â¬Â
On her day to day style: Ã¢â¬ÅI do not give a damn what I look like, I donÃ¢â¬â¢t,Ã¢â¬Â she says. Ã¢â¬ÅI wish I could pay attention because Gwen Stefani, say, looks flawless.Ã¢â¬Â Gomez is also a fan of Rachel Bilson (Ã¢â¬Åthe one person I totally love casuallyÃ¢â¬Â), Gwyneth Paltrow, and Charlize Theron.Ã¢â¬Â She laughs. Ã¢â¬ÅOf course, when IÃ¢â¬â¢m on red carpets, IÃ¢â¬â¢m nervous, sweaty, and weird.Ã¢â¬Â
I’m so glad she’s no longer with Bieber. I think she’s beautiful – and she has a huge career ahead of her!
