Selena Gomez: I Feel Like I'm Getting Stronger

Selena Gomez: I Feel Like I'm Getting Stronger

Selena Gomez shows off her dark side on the cover of Sugar magazine’s latest issue, on newsstands Wednesday (December 22).

Here’s what the 18-year-old entertainer had to share:

On friendship: “When I was younger, being ‘best friends’ was very commercial. It’s all about best friend necklaces and you both think that you have to be exactly the same. Eventually you realize, ‘Oh, I’m my own person. I am different. We actually have nothing in common.’”

On being too ‘nice’: “I used to be much more of a people pleaser than I am today. But about two years ago, I started getting better at doing things and making choices that make me happy. I definitely feel like I’m getting stronger.”

On being single: “Once the blur and haze of being in love goes away you get to focus on yourself. Whenever I have a crush on someone, Jennifer Stone always says, ‘Enjoy the illusion while it lasts, I’ll see you when you get back to the real world!’ And it’s SO true!”

    I really admire her because her responses show that she’s really mature. I wouldn’t think that she’s 18 had I not know who she is.

    selena is so pretty

  • Chloe

    Selena looks Beautiful & I loved what she said about the BFF’s “thing”. A lot people tend to believe they are gonna be Best Friends forever but that’s not true. Some people really don’t worth it.

  • Dragon

    So true about the BFF’s thing. Still wish her and Demi could be really good friends though.

  • Jesse

    @Dragon: agree

  • Meagan

    WOW, I haven’t seen anyone wear shoes like those since the 90s. And yet, Selena pulls them off so well!

  • jj17

    @Dragon: Selena is the one who screwed up the friendship!

  • mary


    you do know that? are you friends with them? did they tell you? no one knows what happened between the two but them!

  • ChantellW


    I agree with Mary, You dont know the full story so you cant just blame her!

  • andy

    @Bella: I’m sorry but wth does Miley or Demi have to do with this!

  • Gossip Girl


  • mendomamir

    she is soooo mature (:

  • Temii

    I Like Selena – She Knows What To Say

    And She Didnt Ruin Their Friendship Actually ; Her And Demi Just Grew Apart : Demi Starting Hanging Out With Miley & Selena Hanging Out With Taylor – It Was Bound To Happen

    Selena Is Mature :)

  • LastStar

    agree with ChantellW n Mary. you don’t know what really happened, no one does. n when it comes to friendships n relationships, in my honest opinion, in most cases there is never juz ‘one’ person who screwed it all up.

    @Meagan: But of course! This is Selena Gomez! She makes anything look like it’s brand new and awesome! Things from the 90s are not yet old enough to be “retro cool” yet Selena makes it look like a brand new fashion statement.

    I love Selena and her heart of gold, but I can’t help but take a liking to this dark side of Selena. Very, I hate this term, sexy.

    I love that I’m noticing more and more, the beauty mark on the left side of her lip. That makes two beauty marks for Selena; no girl more deserving of such statements of beauty. Love you Sel <3

  • haha

    @Bella: hahaha got that right! xP

    Selena is so Beautiful and Gorgeous Love what she is wearing.

  • Patty

    Haha yeah, those shoes are very 90s. Even the volumized hair is very 90s-like, almost like Jennifer Aniston’s hair as Rachel in the early seasons of Friends. Lately, it seems like Selena is bringing back the 90s in her outfits, like the plaid blouses in her clothing line. It feels weird to see 90s fashion becoming retro, makes me feel old xD

  • Erika

    She looks like a real model XD
