Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber’s love life is always in the spotlight.
In talking with Vogue Australia, the 24-year-old singer said, “For a while my private life was the most talked about thing. Nobody really knows everything and they can only assume. You want to do what you love but all this other stuff overshadows it so it makes it a little harder for people to take me seriously”.
Though the singer has since moved on from that relationship, investing most of her time and effort in her music career and concert tours, Selena feels that it’s difficult to start dating again because she thinks that “people would think it’s kind of dumb” to date her.
“Nobody would want to throw themselves into that situation where it was so heightened publicly, like, why would they?”
During the interview, the “Hands To Myself” singer admitted that her song, “Same Old Love”, was indeed about her previous relationship with The Biebs, explaining that it’s the reason why she wanted “Good For You” to be the first single for “Revival”.
“I was so adamant that I didn’t want that to be my story. ‘Same Old Love’ is so obvious in what it’s about, it’s a cycle of a very vicious relationship. Even though that is such a huge narrative of my life, I felt confident with ‘Good For You’ (being the first single), and then it could be like, I’m pissed and this is exhausting. I think any girl would feel that,” she said.
Selena Gomez’s 2nd solo studio album, “Revival”, debuted at #1 in the United States and gave us some pop hits such as “Good for You”, “Same Old Love”, and “Hands to Myself“. To date, Gomez has sold over 45 million tracks worldwide.
