Selena Gomez revealed her self-confidence secret to Popstar! Are you critical of yourself? ‘Yes! [Laughs] That’s a good and bad thing because I’m a perfectionist, so that means I like to do my best and I try to make sure it’s that best that I can do. But I am too hard on my self sometimes. More with singing than acting!’ Do you get nervous before you perform?
‘Yes.. and it’s because I mean, I’ve been doing Wizards for three years and I still get nervous every time we have an audience show because I want it to be the best show it can be. Now, doing music, it’s completely different. I like getting butterflies and I think it’s good to get nervous.
What has been the biggest change for you? ‘What has changed for me being in the business would probably be I’ve put a guard up a lot more than I normally had. I’ve very protective of my friends and my feelings and especially being in the limelight you tend to find people who are interested in you that wouldn’t normally be interested in you. It’s all about what you can get out of person, I feel. So for me, I just try to protect myself and try to pick out who is a true friend and who isn’t.’
What’s the best self-confidence booster? ‘Music. I love music. I love listening to music. It always inspires me, Kelly Clarkson, Taylor Swift’s music, those are very empowering, uplifting songs.’
