Selena Gomez is featured on the cover of the January 2016 issue of InStyle magazine. Inside of this issue, she talks about moving on from her teen romance with her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber.
She said, “It’s really hard because I’m a nice person. I’m just tired of talking about it. I never intended for my life to become a tabloid story.”
With regard to the rumors that she would date Zayn Malik, she said, “If he had asked me out on a date, I would be seen with him. Just kidding, but not kidding.”
On the topic of dating, she said, “I hate it. It’s hard and I’m weirded out by the idea that a guy has Googled me before we meet, and that has happened. I feel like I look 16 sometimes which is a bummer because I would love to date older guys.”
She also talked about asking her friend Taylor Swift for advice in the guy department. She said, “I’ll be like, ‘I think I totally screwed up,’ but Taylor says, ‘Actually, you didn’t,’ and shows me how to make my mistakes into something great.”
She added of their friendship, “People have this fantasy that we’re in our underwear, having pillow fights. We just play good music, sometimes live – and eat, and hang out.”
