Cute! Selena speaks about her relationship with The Weeknd

Selena Gomez recently celebrated her 25th birthday, but while she blew out her candles in the US, her beau The Weeknd was busy headlining mega music festival Lollapalooza in Paris. 

For most partners, the issue of the Atlantic Ocean would have meant that Selena would have spent her birthday without her bf, but when you're a celeb, an ocean is only a slight inconvenience.

After finishing his set in Paris, The Weeknd, real name Abel Tesfaye, dropped everything and immediately hopped on a plane to be with his queen on her birthday, as he shared on his Instagram stories that evening. Couple goals.

The pair clearly have a lot of love for each other, which was evident in Selena's recent interview with InStyle.

Breaking her usually private stance on her relationship, Selena answered a question about Abel to the publication.

After being asked if she was happy in her relationship, the former Disney star said: 'I really am. It's great.'

While Selena is clearly loved up, she made sure to say that while love is important, it is essential to be happy with yourself before becoming attached. 

'You want someone to add to your life, not to complete you, if that makes sense.'

'I'm lucky because he's more of a best friend than anything else,' she told InStyle.

'I don't depend on one area of my life to make me happy,' she continued.

'It's really important for me to love and nourish my friends and family and to make sure that I never get influenced by a guy.'

'I've wanted to be in a strong headspace for years, and I really wasn't. Before, I was so young and easily influenced, and I'd feel insecure.'
