Selena Gomez gave a speech to fans at “We Day California,” yesterday (Mar. 26) that was not only humble and self-effacing, but also seemed to suggest she’s dumped jerk boyfriend Justin Bieber. “You are who you surround yourself with,” she said.

So true.

But whether Selena was just talking the talk or is actually walking the walk remains to be seen. She was spotted back with Justin again recently, even though he’s repeatedly humiliated and embarrassed her by his behavior.

How can she even talk about having self-esteem hanging around that guy?

She seemed to suggest, however, that she was through with him when she admitted she’d given in to “bad influences.”

“I lost sight of who I was. I listened to opinions of people, and I tried to change who I am, because I thought the others would accept me for it,” she said.

“And I realized I don’t know how to be anything but myself.”

Selena’s over-riding message to the teens in the audience was “stay true to yourself.”

“I’m not an activist; I haven’t changed the world or led a campaign. I’m here to just tell you my path, so you can hopefully take something away from it,” she said.

“I’ve learned from my actions, and for all the things I’ve done, I’m proudest of that,” explained the star. “I’ve learned from my mistakes.”

Selena looked ravishing in a red Emporio Armani suit, with nothing underneath except a black bra. (Appropriate for the audience?) She complemented the outfit with black pumps and Melinda Maria jewelry.
