Selena Gomez is getting real about almost everything in the latest issue of of ELLE. Not only is she talking about her past relationships, including Justin Bieber obviously, but she’s also talking about her relationship with the press.
According to the singer anything you have ever read about her in the tabloids is wrong. She said there were times she was supposed to be “pregnant” or “out of control” when really she was just doing her work.
“It was a free-for-all where people said, 'Let's just stick her on every tabloid and exploit everything that's true or false.”
Since then, she’s moved from her old record label and “fired” her manager, who happened to be her mom. She explained that now she's in a new phase of her life where she wants to start taking more control over everything. She said about the management change: "I wanted to be a little uncomfortable."
Selena and her mom grew up in a rough neighbourhood in LA and she said there were times where her mom would keep her in the dark about certain things "out of the kindness of her heart, because she's been through so much in her life."
Aside from breaking up with the Biebs, she also bought herself a huge mansion in Calabasas and signed a contract with Pantene.
She explained the big changed by telling the magazine: "I wanted to be my own person. I wanted to test myself. I wanted to see if I could really do it."
Although, despite all the changes she seems determined to make, she just can’t seem to escape her former flame. While she admits that she and DJ Zedd had a “thing” which is now over, she was less certain about a possible future with ex-Bieber.
“When asked about the possibility of rekindling things with Bieber, she laughed and raised her voice, yelling, ‘I don't know!’”
