Selena Gomez Covers 'Latina' October 2010

Lovely Latina!

Selena Gomez gets goldenized on the October 2010 cover of Latina Magazine.

The 18-year-old actress chatted with the magazine about best friends in the business, not really feeling like she’s 18 and trying her best to learn Spanish. Check it:

On learning Spanish: “I really need to learn my language. I practice, but I can understand it better than I can speak it. At first I did [think you needed to speak it to be a real Latina] but then I started to see all these people that accepted me regardless of the fact that I didn’t speak it.”

On what she’s really looking for in a guy: “You never really know when you’re in love at this age. I don’t know what love is. I would like someone who is not cool and who is really fun to be around and loves family and has good morals.”

On her absolute best friend: “My cousin Priscilla [Deleon] is as close to a sister as I’m going to get. She’s going to be my Maid of Honor when I get married, and I’m going to be hers. I have really good friends in the business and really good friends that are not in the business. I think it’s healthy to have people you relate to and then people who don’t care about blogging and all of the celebrity crap.”

On being proud on not being blonde and blue-eyed: “When I was younger I would say, ‘I wish I were blond and blue-eyed’ because that’s all I saw on TV and because that’s all I would see, that’s all that I thought was beautiful. I know that young girls get that feeling, because I had that feeling. I wouldn’t want any other girl to have that feeling. And if they want to be a singer or an actress or a teacher—I feel like they shouldn’t think that they have to look a certain way.”

On not feeling her age: “I’m 18, but I feel like I’m still 15. I feel very young at heart, and I still want to jump up and down on my bed singing and rocking out.”

    she is sooooooo sweet.. I can really relate to her 100 % .. I am 17 and I really agree with there in all of her points!

  • cheryl

    Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have anything against her, but it’s like she’s always wearing the same dresses, all sweet and adorable and stuff. Maybe she need to rock it out a little. No need to be trashy either, but a little less ‘childish’ could maybe help her actually feel like an 18 year old.

  • jasmine

    haha what’s she saying?
    being 18 is still VERY young!And being 18 doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do those stuff。。。 XD

  • http://@jennajune16 Jen

    @ cheryl I totally agree with you. But she’s still lovely.

  • Jay

    Her style is great.Whenever on the red carpet or out on the street. She’s not being a nun not showing her skin.It seems like you want her to do a magazine with no clothes on like Miley.She is perfect the way she is and it can’t get any better.

  • joan

    wasn’t she just on their cover?

  • London

    sorry but i have to disagree do you really think this short sparkling with a litle cleavge is childish o.0 ????? i think the dress makes her look adult not a child she’s growing up but keep thing is not like someday she wakes up and starts to dress trashy like someone we know….
    about the fact she doesn’t take riscks i personally think she does just like the back of her dress on TCA althoug the keeps her colors neutral she wears pink blue yellow once in a while… but i personally think it’s better to don’t take risk and look classy and age apropiatte than to take riscks and look slutty and trashy

    i think she’s one of those disney stars which will have sucess even when she leaves disney she’s nice she’s sweet she makes people love her and she’s a great actress she can play diferent roles and make fell she’s felling what she’s saying

    no hate intendig =) just saying

  • danielle

    omg she looks totally stunning in that cover!!! wowww one word FLAWLESS!!!

  • neGro xoxo

    oh i think i’m agree too, but i think she is so sweet. i think she should think as an adult cause she looks as a child. she is so kind and have very good personality. do think she is not lovely. her dress is not so beautiful. don’t make me cry!

    @London: And then there’s always the option where you actually take risks but don’t look trashy at all. You can have a daring dress and look classy and sexy at the same time. I wasn’t talking about pulling a T. Momsen. But I personally think she’s gonna end up being type cast (when/if acting) as the never ending sweet girl, always happy and laughing, with bright clothes and a basic wardrobe. And that’s a waste if you ask me.

  • Chloe

    Selena looks beautiful and I agree with all her answers. She got good points and she’s very wise for her age. Thank God she actually has a good and normal family with good morals.

  • blahblahblah

    yes your right plus i don’t like her sorry fans i mean she is cute

  • Havik

    lol. “I’m 18, but I feel like I’m 15.”

    Selena, I love you, I’m your biggest fan, but if you want to have a meaningful career in adult hollywood, you’re going to have to grow up, do adult roles, show some skin, and just grow up. You’re not going to get any serious adult male fans if you act like you’re 15.

  • Nathan Cosgrove

    Selena gomez looks very bad for a magazine cover, personally I did not like his new album, the songs are bad and not even have rhythm, I expected more for your hard selena but it was the worst.

    Miranda Cosgrove is much better than Selena Gomez

  • andy

    @nathan cosgrove i really hope that you are jokking!!! lol wtf is miranda corgrove? omg this dumb comment are the best joke ever!!!!!

  • Naomi

    @Nathan Cosgrove:

    why are you putting miranda cosgrove into this discussion when it has nothing to do with anything? just saying….

  • Karen

    pretty (:

  • kayla

    @Havik: she dont care about ”adult” males she has way more important audiences to appeal to anyways i 100% support selena . JUST DO YOU

  • Bria

    I agree with every last thing she said! She is so wise beyond her years! I’m proud of her for admitting she is still young and doesn’t know what love is. So many young girls swear they know everything! And on her “childish style” I have to disagree, because it is HER style. Maybe at this point she just isn’t comfortable with showing more skin and wearing tighter clothes. She can’t force her level of being comfortable. Fashion is suppose to be an expression of yourself, and now she is really sweet and young. There are actresses like megan Fox and Angelina Jolie, who wear sexier clothing and always play the bitchy, bad ass $lut. And Dakota fanning’s style is very similar to Selena’s and I think she is the most varied actress working today.

  • LOL

    @Nathan Cosgrove: FAIL. Her new album is not even out yet. Miranda is better my ass…

  • lulu

    I have to say thanks to her, I’ve always wanted to be blonde, but she’s so right. It really doesn’t matter! Now I can just accept I have darker features :) x x x

  • shahad

    wow she look so cute

  • carla

    omg! Shes so fucking PRETTY *.* i really hope she gets far in her career… because shes also got a lot of talent.
    Although i think she needs to quit singing. Really, Selena, believe me: Thats not your thing.

  • yvette

    I love selena. But She already does speak her language. She lives in america, she is american, therefore her language is english. People need to learn that being american, you speak english. Don’t like it, then why live here.

  • HIH

    Beautiful :)

  • AnonymousGuy08

    I think she looked better in the “Year Without Rain” music video, but I also think she had a valid point about not needing to fret about being blonde haired and blue eyed.
