Selena Gomez has really become the media’s darling lately, hasn’t she? The singer and actress – who might or might not have gotten back with her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber – opens up to this month’s In Style magazine where she talks about pushing boundaries with her work, her style and of course her career. Check out some of the highlights of what she says below!
At age 20, she wants 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 acareer modeled on stars like Shia LaBeouf, Jennifer Lawrence, and Natalie Portman–actors who are continually reinventing themselves, she says.
Her new album includes a Bieber break-up 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.”
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 fashion 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.”
