Selena Gomez revealed to J-14 she avoids certain people: ‘I try not to surround myself with people who are a bad influence. I had friends who tried to convince me to do bad things.. But I’m headstrong. I’ve never given into peer pressure. I’d just look at them and say, ‘No,’ and walk off. I didn’t go, ‘Well, let me think about it.” Credit: Selena-Fan.
