Selena Gomez gives her first ever adult interview in Cosmopolitan magazine and comes off sounding like a crazy kid in love. But she knows what she wants in a boyfriend and Justin Bieber seems to be making all the right moves.
Gomez, 19, is rapidly blossoming into an adult star after her career as a Disney Princess in the hit show “The Wizards of Waverly Place.” She’s adding just the right touches of sexuality, without tarnishing her role model image.
She tells Cosmo magazine she’s anchored by her family, friends and yes, her boyfriend Justin, who is two years younger than her.
Although they are both big stars, she says they both enjoy doing things together than anyone their age does.
“I’m just like every 19-year-old girl,” she says. “If you’re in love, you’re in love to the fullest, and you just want to go to the movies, hang out, and be as normal as possible. I’m fortunate that I’ve found someone who has that philosophy.”
So Selena finds comfort in the little things they do together, although you might not know it from the exotic vacations they’ve taken together.
Selena appears to take a shot at an ex-boyfriend, but she’s too considerate to say who. Is that fair? She prominently dated “Twilight” hunk Taylor Lautner and Boy band member Nick Jonas. All bets are on Nick, whom she dated off and on throughout 2009. They ended it in April 2010.
At the time, the Disney Channel stars said they broke up because work was going to keep them apart too much. Shortly after, she was spotted with Cameron Quiseng, who plays bass in the boy band Allstar Weekend.
Selena had a “locationship” with Lautner during one of her Nick break ups. They dated in Vancouver in Aug. 2009 while she was filming “Ramona and Beezus” and he was filming “Twilight Saga: New Moon.”
“I was in a relationship previously where I had to hide everything and it wasn’t my choice,” she told Cosmo. “I had to go through different exits and take separate cars and do the craziest things, and it just really wasn’t worth it. It was like a year of my life completely wasted,” she said.
Gomez and Bieber have been very public with their romance.
“[Love] is the most powerful thing,” she says. “When it comes to my family, friends, a relationship … it centers me. You only live once, and I want to be proud of everything that I do and just have fun. I want to be able to say that I had a really fulfilled, fun life.”
