Selena Gomez takes the cover of W magazine’s March 2016 issue in her bikini!
The 23-year-old entertainer chatted about social media, media scrutiny over her and Justin Bieber, and more. Here’s what she shared…
On learning to be herself: “Once Disney was over, I was like…I didn’t know what I wanted to be. I had to learn to be myself.”
On how she differs fromMiley Cyrus: “Every single girl has done it completely differently. Obviously, she wouldn’t want to be doing what I’m doing, and I wouldn’t want to be doing what she’s doing. But I’m a fan of her music—I don’t know if she’d say that about me…We never feuded. We both liked the same guy when we were 16. It was just a Hilary Duff–Lindsay Lohan thing: ‘Oh, my God, we like the same boy!’ We are now completely settled in our own lives.”
On constant Justin Bieber talk: “I’m so exhausted. I honestly am so done. I care about his health and well-being. But I can’t do it anymore.”
On media scrutiny: “At first I didn’t care. To me it was: I’m 18, I have a boyfriend, we look cute together, we like that. Then I got my heart broken and I cared. Because people had no idea what was going on, but everywhere it was a million different things. I was kind of in a corner, banging my head against the wall. I didn’t know where to go.”
Selena Gomez rocks a bright red lip while on the carpet for the premiere of her film Fundamentals of Caring at Eccles Center Theatre during 2016 Sundance Film Festival on Friday (January 29) in Park City, Utah.
Earlier in the day, the 23-year-old actress attended a portrait session for the film alongside her co-stars Paul Rudd and Craig Roberts.
Selena plays a hitchhiker in the film which follows a man suffering an incredible amount of loss who enrolls in a class about care-giving that changes his perspective on life.
“Finally got to see our movie tonight at Sundance!!! So proud to have the closing film -can’t wait for you guys to see it soooon,” Selena wrote on her Instagram following the premiere.
FYI: At the premiere, Selena is wearing Tory Burch sweater and leggings, a Saint Laurent scarf and Givenchy boots. At the portrait session, she is wearing an ALC sweater, Rag and Bone jeans and Jimmy Choo boots.
The 23-year-old actress dished about acting, not being your typical pop star and working with her mom, Mandy on 13 Reasons Why. Check it:
On her mom discovering 13 Reasons Why: “She’s got incredible taste in a weird, cool way. Four or five years ago, she found this book and fell in love with it. I think I was still in high school. Now we’re here. We took our time with it.”
On fighting the pop star stereotype: “I never really wanted to be on tabloids or anything like that. I think it’s wonderful now. I’ve been able to build my platform up because of who I am on the inside and just doing what I love, which is film, which is music. I’m not oblivious to that being the road bump. But I’m also prepared to keep fighting through it.”
On her role in Neighors 2: “I’m just in the beginning. I’m kind of the opposite of what Chloe Moretz would be. I’m the pompous, over-the-top obnoxious sorority president. We’re doing obnoxious things like studying in our bikinis. That’s as risqué as we get.”
