Pop star Selena Gomez graces the cover of the brand new issue of NYLON Magazine. In the article, the Disney beauty-turned-adult actress opens up to the mag about her upcoming role in the controversial film Spring Breakers, her on-again-off-again relationship with superstar Justin Bieber, and her friendship with American sweetheart, Taylor Swift. Here are some highlights from the interview:
On Justin Bieber and love:
As of press time, it seems like her megawatt relationship with Justin Bieber is on-again—“I’m having fun,” she says coyly of her relationship status—but for the latest updates, please consult your smartphone. “It blows my mind that somebody wakes up every morning and goes to their little office and meets with people to just make stuff up,” says Gomez of her endless and oft-imaginative press coverage. She shrugs it off, refraining from reading the blogs “unless it’s really bad and I need to know.” But surely it’s comforting to date someone who knows the drill. “At the end of the day, love is such a nor- mal thing, and everyone deals with it. Just because it’s a dif- ferent lifestyle doesn’t change the meaning of what I’ve been raised on, which is fairy tales.”
On her role in the family-unfriendly film, Spring Breakers:
“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. I know it isn’t for the younger generation I have following me, but I’m also about to be 21.”
On experiencing her own Spring Break:
“I don’t think I’ve even had a spring break,” Gomez says. But making the film allowed her to experience it vicariously, “doing things that I would get so much hate and in trouble for,” like under-age drinking, felony narcotics possession, and grand theft auto. “I had to have someone show me how to hold the cigarette,” says Gomez.
On her last tour and shift towards acting:
“if I start doing things because I want to stay relevant or I want people to like me, then I’m just going to be miserable.”
On her friendship with Taylor Swift:
“We both experienced the same things at the same time,” she says. “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.”
