Disney’s little angel Selena Gomez spoke to TOPP [Norwegian magazine, translated by Lena] recently in LA: How has your life changed? Everything has changed, and that is both good and bad. It’s sad to live away from your parents, but I love what I’m doing and I don’t know what I’d do without it.
What do you love about your job? That I can come here and do what I love. Working for Disney is fantastic. This year so much will happen. With a new season for my show, I’m also working on my new album, and with Demi on Princess Protection Program.
How do you keep yourself so grounded? That credit goes to my parents. I’m only 16, and I need them in this business. My parents can also say no for me.
How is you character Alex in proportion to you? She’s a little mean, and gets in trouble a lot. I try to stay away from trouble, and I’m also an only child, and Alex has two brothers. But we both like to have fun.You told us that you had a boyfriend last time we spoke to you: I date, and that’s really good. But I’m only 16 and still young. I still want to be a teenager.
But you told to J-14 that you don’t need a boyfriend? That’s something I said a long time ago. Besides they misconstrue a lot. You really did your research, I like that. What’s a perfect date to you? I don’t like to watch movies at a first date. I like it more intimate so you could get to know each other better.
What kind of guys do you like? I like guys who are cute, nice and funny. It’s important that he makes me laugh. On Nick Jonas: We have a lot of the same interests.
Do you have any role models? Hilary Duff! I love Lizzie McGuire, and that I could do a follow-up
to her movie was so cool! I also like Rachel McAdams. She’s down to
earth, and not a lot in the media.
What does your friends think about you being a celebrity and being in magazines worldwide? I’m still Selena, and they’re my friends. The difference is that I’m homeschooled, and I have a different job.
How do you handle the paparazzi? There are both positive and negative sides with having paparazzies
after you, but it keeps me in the limelight. I have to be nice to them,
if I want them to be nice to me. It’s something I have to get used to.
A lot of celebrities want a paparazzi after them, so I’m not
complaining! There hasn’t been any scandal pictures yet? They’re gonna get tired of me. I’m boring, she warns us.
