What was supposed to be a quiet time marked by her 22nd birthday turned into a tabloid nightmare.
“I had to be honest, especially this month, I can’t thank you guys, because you remind me, amidst all the stuff we deal with personally, you remind me of what’s important. And that’s giving and loving and caring,” she said.
Her tabloid run began with a blow-out Saint-Tropez birthday on a luxury yacht. The gathering, which included openly bi-sexual UK model Cara Delevingne ignited rumors about her sexual preferences.
It didn’t help that Cara posted photos on her Facebook page show her with Selena laying together in their underwear with Selena’s leg draped over her.
Then, she was photographed in the arms of a Hollywood playboy Tommy Chiabra. Only a few weeks ago he was doing the same with actress Jessica Szohr. who posted an angry response on social media.
She was dragged Bieber’s Ibiza confrontation with Orlando Bloom when initial reports claimed that she was responsible for the fracas. They were based on a photo of her taking a smoking break with Bloom at an event in LA. The reports proved to be untrue.
Just before the awards show, she was also dragged into a nude photo scandal when photos went viral that were reported to be her topless. They also proved to be someone else.
Along the way she endured a number of clashes with paparazzi that recalled her days dating bad boy Bieber. In one case they caused her to have a fender bender car accident.
In fact, the Teen Choice Award was the first positive thing to happen to Selena all month.
“I’m not trying to preach or anything like that, it’s just that you guys make me better,” she said.
Selena wore Saint Laurent, Miu Mui and Dior according to her Instagram accoun.
