Selena, ”Best Friend’ Label Is Ridiculous’

sleenaytj


Selena Gomez Seventeen interview. Monte Carlo is about graduating & taking your first major trip alone. Do you feel as free as Grace is? Yeah, I’ve definitely gained a lot of that recently. I went on vacation over New Year’s with a bunch of my friends, for the first time, without my parents. That was so much fun. I feel like I’m in a place where I’m on my own a little bit. It’s nice.

Who would you want to take with you on a trip to Paris? I’d love to go on vacation with Taylor [Swift]. I’ve been able to fly to Nashville to see her, and she’ll come to LA a lot, but it’d be nice to get away. It would be really fun. I’ve known Taylor for over three years now, so we’re at the point where we just get each other.

Is she your best friend? I’ve gotten to the point where the label of ‘best friend’ is so ridiculous. If you have three people in your life that you can trust, you can consider yourself the luckiest person in the whole world. I have a lot of wonderful people in my life, probably five, collectively, who I can tell everything to. There’s Jennifer [Stone], my friend Ashley, and Taylor, and my two cousins.

Have you had a friendship fall apart? Yes. You reflect on the people who used to be in your life, and it’s like, ‘Wow, I can’t believe that person was ever really in my life.’ But people are put into your life for seasons, for different reasons, and to teach you lessons. You’re growing and changing, and eventually, you can go

from having all these friends to feeling like you have no one, because you’ve been betrayed, or you’ve gone through things. But in this moment, I’m in such a good place with my friends. I feel confident and I’m happy there are people who I can truly trust in my life.

Do you give second chances if you’re betrayed? I believe in second chances, but I don’t believe in third or fourth chances. I love talking through things, and I always want to make things work, if I really love someone, but eventually, if they can’t fix whatever is wrong, or if they’ve done something and then they continue to do it, they’re probably not going to change for anybody. You can’t change a person. Jennifer Stone has told me a thousand times: ‘You want to be friends with people who double you, not cut you in half.’

Are you still close with Demi? Yes, of course. There’s an amount of love that can never, no matter what, be taken away or torn apart, no matter the situation. There are certain people who you will always, always love, so if anything, this just reminded me of how much I truly love her.

Do you feel like you’ve ever been in love before? I don’t know. I maybe had a first love and had my heart broken, but reflecting on it, I don’t think that was love. I think that was just me being fifteen and going, ‘Oh my gosh! I know I’m in love. I’m going to marry him.’ So I don’t think that was love. I think as I’m getting older and having more in-depth relationships, maybe I’ll experience it. At the moment, I don’t know, exactly, if I’ve been in love.

But when you did feel like you were in love, how did you deal when it ended? I’m very emotional. When I went through my first breakup, I thought it was the end of the world, and I thought I was going to die if I didn’t have him in my life. It was good to cry it out, and just scream, or call my friends

in the middle of the night crying. You can’t shut down, you can’t say, ‘What can I do to make this go away?’. You have to let it be painful and get through it. Every day gets better. Because when you’re in love, you kind of give everything and make that person your life. So every day you get more and more of yourself back, and it feels better.

You’ve been open with your relationship with Justin Bieber & you coordinated Oscars outfits. I know. That was our prom. Was there a corsage involved? No, but there should have been!

Is there a reason you’ve decided to be more open this time around, with Justin? I don’t like hiding. I do like to keep certain things to myself, but at the end of the day, I’m eighteen, and I’m going to fall in love. I’m going to hang out with people, and I’m going to explore myself, and I’m okay with that.

Do you remember being younger, and being a fan with a crush? Are you kidding me? I’m still thinking Zac Efron’s my husband. Well we hear he’s on the market.. No. I wouldn’t touch that. I love Vanessa [Hudgens] way too much. Do you have anything you wish you could say to Justin’s fans now? I do see the passion that a lot of these girls have, and it’s beautiful. I love it. I really do. It’s special.

    OK! So Demi is not a close friend.
    Selena is getting on my nerves. One minute she’s like I love you Demi and she’s my best friend and the other, no we are good friends.

    Selena Gomez is Definitely an attention seeker.

    Sometimes you just are a good girl. Come on. A lot of us are. Her bad girl stuff might be her private life, too. But you do know that a lot of people don’t even have a bad girl private life. And everyone puts on an image.

    On another note, just something to keep in mind: Magazines have a tendency to tweak their interviews to make them more interesting. What you read in an interview may not be what the interviewee actually said. I vagely remember a few years ago this happened with Demi. A quote that was highlighted in the article as a standalone quote in big, different color font was different than the article, but that was the one people chose to remember even though the quote was altered.
    Magazines know how the public reacts and what they react to. They have people paid to figure that shit out.
    Oh and for you parrot people: This applies to stars both similar and dissimilar to Selena. Party people, business people.

    Registered users can be just as pathetic as unregistered users. The difference is the frills you guys get make you look better. Example: If you put an amazing homeless person next to a well-dressed, preppy average person who gets many things but not everything wrong, people are still going to think the preppy person is smarter.

    Each such exercise is required to be taught in more detail to participants, rather then in a haphazard way like a general method for fitness to any or all populations. The exceptions really should be understood so that people do not experience negative effects in the yoga asanas. Therefore , it’s important to have a teacher who’s aware of contraindicated populations for all exercises. This information is well-known for traditional resistance training, but is not tutored to populations studying pilates. The beauty of pilates is its absolute addiction to nothing but the hero. No external equipment is critical. However, it is imperative that you focus the body as well as mind in an integrated way. Ultimately, ones psychic energy is awakened.

    She mentions Demi! Are people reading the same interview? I am in no way a Selena fan, I dislike her actually, but after a year or so of not talking you can’t expect her and Demi to just go back to being BFF’s. It doesn’t work that way.

    And Yes Demi did say she *felt* it was her fault and she took the blame that Selena wasn’t her friend during their fallout – doesn’t mean it was completely though. Has to have been partially Sel’s fault, friendships are 2 way streets.

    But I digress. She says they are ‘still close’ in this, so what’s the problem?

    And as for attacking Demi. How the hell do you know what she can and can’t do?! I’m sure she has a recovery plan in place, which differs from other people’s plans you know, they aren’t all the same!, of what she can and can’t do (like exercise). Don’t assume you know everything cos your friend couldn’t exercise for a long time. That was your friend, not Demi!

    And as for Demi’s friends. She seems to have a lot of friends in her life. She can choose who to be friends with as well. You don’t know her! We don’t know any of her relationships now with JB, Miley or Selena. As for Shorty (you mentioned Alex as well, is that Shorty again or someone else?!) well we know why that ended, quite normal if you ask me.
    Demi has made her apology to Alex (Shorty) and that’s between them. Why not just leave her alone? She’s done nothing to warrant this.
    The past is the past. How about we leave it there and just concentrate on here and now? Yeah? Cool.
