Ex Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith calls for benefits to be increased in line with inflation to provide ‘shield’ against cost-of-living crisis Mr Duncan-Smith made…
Who doesn’t love Selena Gomez? She’s undeniably one of the biggest celebrities alive today, and it should come as no surprise that she’s constantly hounded by the paparazzi. And as every single one of her big fans can tell you, the girl is immensely talented. She’s built a huge reputation for herself in show business – not just in the music world, but in Hollywood and even the fashion industry in more recent times. This is a strong woman we’re talking about here, and sometimes it can be hard to forget that she’s not a Disney child star anymore. Blessed with incredible, youthful good looks, this star has become a major style icon in recent years, and the paparazzi just can’t get enough of her.
It’s something that she sometimes struggles to accept. She’s spoken out again and again about how she sometimes feels violated and intimidated by the ruthless photographers that follow her around literally everywhere she goes. But she also accepts that it’s part of being famous, and those sweet days of her innocent childhood are long gone now. She’s suffered a lot, but she’s also enjoyed incredible success, and she refuses to let anything hold her down. The pictures taken by the paparazzi paint an incredible portrait of her stunning journey in the entertainment industry.
25 Trying To Calm Justin Bieber Down
Perhaps unfairly, one of the things that has come to define Selena Gomez is her on and off relationship with Justin Bieber. The two are almost interchangeable terms these days, and it’s resulted in a lot of increased publicity and attention from the paparazzi for both of them. The above picture is of Selena Gomez trying to calm Justin Bieber down after he allegedly attacked a member of the paparazzi, as reported by Perez Hilton.
When talking about the early stages of her relationship with Justin Bieber, she was quoted by Billboard as saying, “I didn’t think I was doing anything bad by falling in love. There’s such an emphasis on people being the perfect thing and then destroying them because it’s good press. Throw in the fact that you are a teenager – it makes it more difficult.”
A lot of people think that her song, “Same Old Love” is about her relationship with Justin Bieber. When Rolling Stone asked her about it, she explained that it was all about going through the same cycle again and again. Sound familiar? She stated, “It’s a song about a cycle, a cycle that people understand. It drives you mad, but it’s beautiful. People have seen most of the choices that I’ve made in my life. And I love every choice that I’ve made. Because now I understand how to apply that to my music. This is who I am. I’m glad my life was never perfect.”
24 Looking Refreshed After A Workout
A star like Selena Gomez is constantly the center of attention, and photographers love taking pictures of her even when she least expects it. For this reason, it’s almost mandatory that the young star keeps her body in great shape – and she’s doing just that.
She is one celeb who works out really hard to keep fit, whether it’s in the gym or at yoga classes.
In an interview with Elle, Selena Gomez discussed her workout routine in detail. She explained, “I’m horrible at discipline when it comes to working out. I’m one of those people who’s like, ‘Ah, I ran for five minutes. I think I’m good.’ Not the best, so I’ve been working with my trainer Amy Rosoff Davis for a year now, and when we started the tour, I really wanted to keep it up. I wanted to be healthy; I wanted to feel good. I just wanted to make sure I was the best I could be for the show and for my fans. Amy is actually on the road with me, which is really great because she’s the person who comes in when I’m like, ‘I don’t feel like it.’ She’s like, ‘No, you’re getting up and you’re working out.’ We’ll do hikes. We have a Pilates machine. I have a sweat bed, which looks like a burrito that I wrap myself up in, and I sweat for about 45 minutes. Just little things to kind of keep me healthy and keep me focused.”
23 On The Set Of Spring Breakers
One of Selena Gomez’s most defining moments was when she starred in the critically acclaimed indie movie Spring Breakers. She joined several big names in the cast, such as James Franco and Vanessa Hudgens.
The movie definitely highlighted Selena’s acting ability, and it seems like it was a really positive experience for her. She admits that she definitely learned a lot.
When asked whether she learned anything from working on Spring Breakers, Selena Gomez told Collider, “Yeah, to just not be in my head as much. I was definitely one of those actors, where I was just critiquing every single thing I did and making sure I had every line down pat. Harmony just really wanted to throw that all away. He never wanted me to be in my mind. That’s what I definitely appreciate. It allowed me to go to these places that I didn’t really think I could go to. Not just saying the bad thing, but more the emotional scenes that I had to give myself to, in a bikini and in that way. And then, having James Franco’s character come was just really frightening. So, if anything, I’ve just learned to not be in my head as much, to just take it as it goes, and just to be in your surroundings and work off of that.”
22 With The Weeknd
Another big moment for Selena Gomez was her time dating fellow musician The Weeknd. For the longest time, it seemed like the only guy ever connected to Selena was Justin Bieber, and so for many it was a bit of a shock to see her with someone new. We all know that the relationship did not last, but it seems like things were ended on good terms.
One thing’s for sure, though. Photographers had an absolute field day while these two were dating. Many photos surfaced of the two kissing and going on dates, and they didn’t really try to hide anything from the cameras.
Speaking about what it was like to date The Weeknd, Selena Gomez was quoted by Insider as saying, “I really am [happy]. It’s great. I don’t depend on one area of my life to make me happy. 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. 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.”
21 They Constantly Followed Her And Justin Bieber
But as everyone knows, her relationship with The Weeknd wasn’t the first time photographers had followed her because of her relationship. The couple was considered the holy grail of photo opportunities for paparazzi all over the world, and it seemed like they simply never quit trying to get pictures of these two together. Of course, she no longer has to worry about that, seeing as they’re no longer together. But how long will their breakup last this time?
And as most of her fans know, she’s not shy about admitting how Justin Bieber really made her feel. ABC News quoted her as saying that she never wanted her life to become one big tabloid story revolving around her relationship with Justin Bieber. She stated, “Of course I got my heart broken. Of course I was [angry] about it. There, everybody has it. I was so disappointed, because I never wanted my career to be a tabloid story. At this point, there is no anger. There’s closure in a very good, healthy way. We’ve seen each other. I’m always encouraging and I am proud of his journey. I think people are making it out to be something that is more tragic than it really was. We grew up together. We both made mistakes. That’s it.”
20 Her Connection To Harry Styles
Many people might have totally forgotten that Selena Gomez once was connected to Harry Styles, the famed member of the group One Direction. It seems like a total blur in our memories, but this was pretty big news back in the day. It obviously didn’t last very long, but it was definitely a huge story. Photographers once again tried their best to get a picture of these two together. On the surface, it seemed like a match made in heaven. The relationship was once described as “best friends falling in love.” But alas, it wouldn’t last…
Selena once said some pretty hilarious things about Harry Styles and his dating habits. As quoted by Hollywood Life, the pop singer once said, “We know some beautiful young women in the industry who have major crushes on Harry. He could probably pretty much take his pick from the hottest young girls in Hollywood. But from what Justin has been telling me, it’s not the young girls he’s looking at! I guess you just can’t blame him when you see how hot women such as Cameron Diaz, Eva Longoria and Sofia Vergara look. Both me and Justin still have really hot moms and Justin was like, ‘Harry might have become one of my best buddies, but with his record we need to keep him away from our mums.’”
19 Lunch With Her Bible In Hand
Selena Gomez is not typically associated with church and religion, but sources say that it’s starting to play more and more of a role in her life. Business Insider did a whole article on how Selena Gomez is now a member of the famed Hillsong Church, led by the “hipster pastor” Carl Lentz. Justin Bieber is famous for his relationship with this pastor, and it seems that Selena Gomez is yet another celebrity who has become enamored with this new and hip way of presenting religion to the young people of America. Business Insider says that she’s a frequent attendee to the Hillsong Church sermons, which are more like rock concerts than what you might expect from a church event.
Selena Gomez has talked about her complex relationship with religion in the past. Fox News once quoted her as saying, “It’s hard because I don’t know if it’s necessarily that I believe in religion as much as I believe in faith and a relationship with God. I’ve never been the person that’s like, ‘this is what it should be. I’ve just experienced things in my life where there are holes in things that nothing else can fill and I know that if I didn’t have the faith that I had it wouldn’t have gotten me through some of the hardest times in my life… That word freaks me out sometimes, you know.”

18 She Loves Sports
Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber made an undeniably cute couple for a while, and one of their favorite dates was to go see a sports match. Justin Bieber is a famously huge fan of basketball and hockey, and the two would often be seen watching games together. From the pictures that were taken of the couple, it seemed like Selena was just as excited by the action as her then boyfriend. And unlike some of the more private locations that the couple might choose to go to, there was absolutely no escaping from the cameras while inside these public stadiums.
Although she seemed to love going to basketball and hockey games with her boyfriend Justin Bieber, she definitely wasn’t thrilled about having to kiss the star on the famous “kiss cam.” For those who don’t know, when you see yourself on the big screen at the stadium with your partner, the expectation is that you kiss. She told the Mirror about the incident, admitting, “Oh gosh, that was probably the most humiliating thing that’s ever happened to me, probably. I thought those were funny, and they were doing these little elderly couples and it was so cute. And then all of a sudden we’re both looking up and we come on and it’s like so awkward. It was so weird. And I mean, you have to kiss, right?”
17 Having Fun On A Yacht
One of the biggest news stories surrounding Selena Gomez as of late was her kidney transplant. This was a pretty surprising development for all of her fans, and most of us had no idea her condition was that serious (she suffers from lupus). But thanks to her friends and a lot of support from those close to her, she made it through the tough ordeal. This picture was taken in Australia, where she went to recover from the potentially life-threatening surgery.
After her famous kidney transplant, Selena Gomez is coming to terms with her scar, and her new perspective on life. US Weekly quoted her as saying, “It was really hard in the beginning. I remember looking at myself in the mirror completely naked and thinking about all the things that I used to [complain] about and just asking, ‘Why?’ I had someone in my life for a very long time who pointed out all the things that I didn’t feel great about with myself. When I look at my body now, I just see life. There are a million things I can do — lasers and creams and all that stuff – but I’m OK with it. And by the way, there’s nothing wrong with [enhancing your appearance]. I just think for me, it could be my eyes, my round face, my ears, my legs, my scar. I don’t have perfect abs, but I feel like I’m wonderfully made.”
16 She Loves Disneyland
Here’s another picture of the famous star, and this one was taken in Disneyland. Believe it or not, this was all the way back in 2007, when she was still very young. As Harper’s Bazaar reports, she was surrounded by her family and seemed to have the time of her life. Of course, Disney is something that will always be a huge part of the ex-child-star’s past, as she got her start with the massive media corporation. As Harper’s Bazaar reported, she went on rides and laughed just like a normal child would.
Although the Disney Channel is what made her so successful early in her career, Selena Gomez refers to the organization as “the biggest high school in the world,” in an interview about bullying. As quoted by Billboard, she stated, “I went to the biggest high school in the world, which is the Disney Channel.”
As quoted by Complex, her enthusiasm for Disneyland is such that she loves to talk to other people about it, and it gets her even more excited. She stated, “It’s me going to get coffee earlier this morning and talking with a woman who was celebrating her birthday and going to Disneyland for the first time. I told her about my favorite things there, and she got excited, and then I got excited because she was excited. The littlest things are impactful.”
15 Pumping Gas
It seems like even the most mundane of celebrity activities are worthy of headlines these days. Who really cares that Selena Gomez pumped gas at some point? While it’s true that seeing celebrities partake in such a “normal” activity can be a little shocking, Selena Gomez herself has spoken out about how she doesn’t like the feeling of cameras following her literally everywhere. And honestly, this is something that pretty much everyone should be able to understand.
Selena Gomez has spoken out numerous times about how violated and scared she feels as a result of attention from the paparazzi. She was quoted by Vogue as saying, “I remember just feeling really violated when I was younger, even just being on the beach. I was maybe 15 or 16 and people were taking pictures — photographers. I don’t think anyone really knew who I was. But I felt very violated and I didn’t like it or understand it, and that felt very weird, because I was a young girl and they were grown men. I didn’t like that feeling. I think it changed when I started getting known for things that weren’t [related to] my work. That’s when my passion started to really feel like it was going further and further away. And that scared me.
14 Cute Dress
Like it or not, Selena Gomez has become something of a style icon in this day and age. Because when you’re constantly having your picture taken by the paparazzi, it pays to look your best.
Selena’s style is pretty varied, and she wears a huge range of outfits based on the occasion. But this particular dress really sums up Selena’s personality and overall sense of style.
She once told People, “My personal style is classic. Especially in the summer — I’ve been wearing a lot of long flowy dresses, just because I like things that are light and just classic.” But she also admits that her sense of style changes quite rapidly, and it’s often a reflection on the album she’s working on. She told WWD, “It’s definitely about where I am in my life. I wore combat boots for two albums, then I went into more of the sparkle and glamour. The older that I’ve become, I’ve felt very connected to fashion, especially this past year working with [stylist] Kate Young and creating these relationships with people that I never had before. This album, how it really ties together, is it is just me. I gave myself to this album and this music, so I wanted it to be very sophisticated. If I could sum up my look in one word, I would hope that it would be sophisticated.”
13 Wearing The Weeknd’s Jacket After Breakup
While Selena Gomez’s relationship with The Weeknd was definitely a big story and one that was feverishly reported on by media all around the world, their breakup was an equally massive story. Where did it all go wrong? Glamour claims that it was actually The Weeknd who ended the relationship, and they even go as far as to claim that the singer ended things on the phone with Selena Gomez. What’s certain is that the two musicians were apart from each other when the breakup happened. Selena was working on a movie in New York, and The Weeknd was away while on tour. One thing’s for sure, though – according to Selena Gomez herself, the relationship was ended on good terms and the two are still friends to this day.
When asked what the best part about being single was, the singer was quoted by Complex as saying, “The best part? It’s actually… you know what, though? Something that I’m really proud of is that there’s such a true friendship [between me and The Weeknd]. I truly have never experienced anything like that in my life. We ended it as best friends, and it was genuinely about encouraging and caring [for each other], and that was pretty remarkable for me.”
12 Spotted At A Medical Center
Another shocking episode in the life of Selena Gomez was her admittance to a rehab center. Obviously, it’s no longer consider rare for celebrities to check themselves into rehab, and it’s become a sad reality of being famous. These days, it’s almost considered weird if you haven’t been to rehab at least once during your journey with fame.
All in all, it seems to have been a smart move for Selena, and a positive development in her life.
Speaking about why she decided to go to rehab, she told Cosmopolitan back in 2017, “Tours are a really lonely place for me. My self-esteem was shot. I was depressed, anxious. I started to have panic attacks right before getting onstage, or right after leaving the stage. Basically I felt I wasn’t good enough, wasn’t capable. I felt I wasn’t giving my fans anything, and they could see it – which, I think, was a complete distortion. I was so used to performing for kids. At concerts I used to make the entire crowd raise up their pinkies and make a pinky promise never to allow anybody to make them feel that they weren’t good enough. Suddenly I have kids smoking and drinking at my shows, people in their 20s, 30s, and I’m looking into their eyes, and I don’t know what to say.”
11 Looking Great In Shorts
Of course, sometimes there’s no real reason why the paparazzi love to take pictures of Selena Gomez. She could simply be walking down the street, and pictures of her would still make headlines. She’s just that kind of girl. You definitely can’t argue with some of her style choices. She can grab the public’s attention while still remaining sophisticated and classy. While her outfit of jean shorts and flowing grey top is definitely on point here, her hair is something else that really grabs our attention.
She once told Elle magazine that she really admired the hair of Blake Lively and Rachel McAdams, saying, “I wish she was my friend, but she’s not my friend. Blake Lively. I’ve never met her, but I just love her hair. I think she’s got beautiful, effortless hair. I think she’s super beachy. I also really love, love, love Rachel McAdams, and the reason why I love her hair is because she can always change it up, and she can always kind of… I don’t know. If you think about it from Wedding Crashers to Mean Girls to The Notebook, she’s always changing her hair. It’s like short and long and beautiful. She’s kind of classy that way. Those are two people that are not my friends, but I love them, and I think they have really good hair.”
10 Hiding From The Paparazzi
This is one of the most amusing pictures that the paparazzi have managed to snap of the famous pop star. Although it might seem a little silly to us, Selena probably wasn’t laughing during this moment. Again, this was during her stint in rehab, and she probably didn’t want the public looking in on this troubling time in her life. She seems intent on hiding her face from the cameras as she’s accompanied by a nurse at the rehab center.
As quoted by Cosmopolitan, she said of her stint in rehab, “You have no idea how incredible it felt to just be with six girls, real people who [didn’t care] about who I was, who were fighting for their lives. It was one of the hardest things I’ve done, but it was the best thing I’ve done.” Speaking more candidly about what stresses her out, Selena Gomez was quoted by US Weekly as saying, “I can’t stand social media. I can’t stand what [teens are] looking at. I can’t stand what they think is reality and the show is as real as it could possibly get. It’s hard when you’re looking at something everyday. You’re missing life in front of you. There are 17-year-olds who look older than me. That freaks me out.”
9 Blonde Bombshell
There’s no denying that Selena Gomez looks stunning as a blonde. It seems like a lot of stars these days are dying their hair blonde, and Selena is joining the growing ranks. Although her natural black hair is quite beautiful, there’s something really alluring about her blonde look, and it took a lot of people off guard. She looks very different – although obviously not different enough to fool the paparazzi who snapped this beautiful picture of the star.
The fact that she did eventually go blonde is pretty funny, because back 2016, she told Elle in an interview that blonde hair did not appeal to her at all.
When asked if she’d ever rock the blonde look, Selena Gomez replied,0 “No, unless it’s for a movie role. I love my hair. I definitely think it’s my staple piece. It’s something that makes me feel like me, but when I’m acting or doing anything for a role, obviously I can’t ever say that I wouldn’t do it, but it would have to be for something like that.”
And after she went blonde, she admitted to Vogue: “I feel bold. I feel strong, and I feel like me. The blonde has made feel a little bolder, and I feel confident. I wake up every morning thinking ‘oh my gosh,’ it’s just different for me.”
8 Who’s That Guy In The Background?
One of the craziest rumors surrounding Selena Gomez was her alleged relationship with Orlando Bloom. The most likely explanation is that is was just that – a rumor. But that didn’t stop tons of stories and gossip articles from breaking out, claiming that the two were secretly dating. These two have been photographed together a few times, and apparently that was enough to get the rumor mills working overtime. It’s true that the two are friends, but probably nothing more than that. The two superstars have been photographed together outside of clubs and so on, but there’s nothing really behind it. The above picture was snapped while the two were walking through an airport, and even the most eagle-eyed of our viewers might not have been able to recognize the fact that the man wearing a hat in the background is actually none other than Orlando Bloom himself!
As E! News reports, the two actually worked together during a special concert for empowering youths, called We Day. This epic concert took place in Vancouver, BC, and attracted a few other big names, such as Seth Rogen. That probably explains why these two were traveling through an airport at the same time as each other!
7 Giving Her Fans A Kiss
Here’s another picture of Selena Gomez at a basketball game, although this one looks as if it was taken not by a member of the paparazzi, but by a respectful fan or friend. She definitely looks a lot different when she wants her picture to be taken, and agrees to it. And when you see the joy in her face, it really reminds you of just how beautiful this famous singer can be when she wants to. She looks positively radiant and beautiful.
In an interview with Allure, the pop singer revealed that even thought she might look perfect, she doesn’t actually go too overboard when it comes to beauty, especially when it comes to her hair.
She reveals, “I don’t wash my hair everyday, which may sound gross, but it’s actually really bad for my hair. Some of my best friends actually can’t go more than maybe two days without washing their hair, and for me, I give my mom and my dad all the credit, because I have thick hair, so it gets better the less I wash it. By the third day, my hair actually holds pretty well. It just holds curls better, and it holds product better. It’s so strange, but it actually works. I just use a little dry shampoo, and I tease it to keep the volume up. Usually by day four is when I have to absolutely wash it.”
6 Leap Of Faith
Who is this strange man that’s jumping into the water with Selena Gomez? Well, as the Daily Mail reports, it’s someone by the name of Tommy Chiabra. This Italian “socialite” is described by the Daily Mail as someone who has tons of connections with the biggest celebrities in the world, especially when it comes to Europe. This guy is also very wealthy, as he’s a yacht broker. He organizes superyachts for the rich and famous, and runs a company called Royal Yacht Supplies.
This picture, along with many others, was taken on Selena Gomez’s 22nd birthday, and Tommy helped her celebrate by having a party on one of his famous superyachts.
These pictures caused a lot of speculation within the media circles, as Tommy seemed to be very friendly with Selena, and as the Daily Mail reports, Selena seemed to return the feeling. The two were seen laughing, swimming, and cuddling together while on the luxurious yacht, and they even went for a spin on a jet-ski together. By the end of the day, Tommy was wrapping Selena in a towel and acting like “quite the gentleman,” as the Daily Mail reports. Obviously, this was a short lived rumor, but a notable set of paparazzi pictures nonetheless.
5 Making Sweats Look Stylish
Selena Gomez is so good-looking she can even make a sweatsuit look good. This is definitely a more stylish version of your average set of sweatpants and hoodie, but there’s no denying that Selena Gomez carries it off with style. She looks happy, cheerful, and above all else, comfortable. Because who says you can’t be comfy and fashionable at the same time?
When asked about why she got back together with Justin Bieber recently, the singer responded rather cryptically, saying that she “cherishes people who impacted her life.”
As quoted by Complex, she replied, “I’m 25. I’m not 18, or 19, or 20. I cherish people who have really impacted my life. So maybe before, it could have been forcing something that wasn’t right. But that doesn’t mean caring for someone ever goes away. And [that goes for] people in general. I mean, I grew up with Demi [Lovato]. Nick and Joe [Jonas] and Miley [Cyrus] – we’ve gone through seasons in our lives. I don’t think it’s as serious as people make things out to be half the time. It’s just my life. I grew up with all of these people, and it’s so cool to see where everybody is. It comes back to the idea of me remaining full. I think a true representation of love is beyond just yourself.”
4 Leaving Yoga Class
This picture was allegedly taken by a member of the paparazzi after the star left yoga class. She looked like she was dressed for the occasion anyway, with those stylish yoga pants. Working out doesn’t necessarily mean hitting the gym and lifting weights, and yoga can be really healthy and helpful for people. Based on this picture, it seems like Selena is a firm believer in the power of yoga.
Speaking to Allure, she admits that she embraces the whole “just got out of bed” look. She admitted, “I usually never sleep in past 10, unless it’s the weekend and I had a night out with my friends, because I like to start my day. I get up and work out, whether it’s Pilates or cardio. I love to do three easy things in the morning: I’ll wash my face, I usually tone it, and then I’ll put a little bit of moisturizer on it, not tons, because I have really oily skin. I don’t have specific products I’m obsessed with; I just try different things. That’s how I’ve always been. My mom always used Oil of Olay when I was growing up, but I’ve tried a million other things. At the end of the day, I have to wash my face. I hate going to bed after a long day not washing my face. It’s something I’ve grown into. When I was younger, I didn’t care. And that’s my routine. I have a little sound machine I sleep with.”
3 She Has Great Style
This is probably one of the most iconic paparazzi pictures ever taken of Selena Gomez. Everything about this picture perfectly sums up her fun, bubbly personality, and although this style choice looks effortless, it’s really on point. It’s often been said that the very best fashion looks seem as though zero effort was put into them, and this is definitely a clear example of that. With her ripped overalls and cute tank top sweater, this is one look that looks perfectly choreographed and thrown together all at the same time. It’s so her!
And believe it or not, Selena Gomez has been moving more an more towards the fashion world as a career move. As Hello Magazine reported, she recently designed an accessories line for the popular brand Coach.
She takes her role in the fashion industry very seriously, and she was quoted by the article as saying: “There is no stupid question, and there are no stupid ideas. I think even the way something feels can inspire you, a song could inspire you to create something. Finding those moments for you to connect to your work. And also, just keep your eyes on your work, it is easy to compare yourself but it’s important to stay true to what matters (to your work).”
2 Spotted In New York
Here’s another one of Selena’s most stylish looks, and this one was taken as she was walking down the streets of New York City. She was there recently to film a Woody Allen movie, as reported by Billboard, and it seems like she’s really fallen in love with the city. One thing’s for sure, the paparazzi caught her in a totally stylish and fashionable moment.
As quoted by Billboard, it was during one of these walks down the streets of New York city that Selena Gomez said she found her current dog – Charlie.
She revealed, “It’s actually funny – it was my ex-boyfriend’s [The Weeknd] doing. We were walking down the street [in New York], and he saw a cute little puppy in the window and walked in. Charlie was in the corner. He had his head down and he just seemed really sad, and I loved him. I find I do that in every situation in life. I find that person – or dog – and I’m like, “Yessss. That’s who I want.”
She also revealed to Billboard that she loved being in New York recently, saying, “I spent time this year shooting [Woody Allen’s next movie] in New York. I think being in that movie and just being in New York – the culture there, just walking around and really engaging with people, which is not that common here – I feel like it allowed me to be present a little bit more.”
1 Bringing Out Her Inner Child
Sometimes it’s hard to accept the fact that Selena is in fact “all grown up” these days. Many people still see her as that Disney star who had such a bright personality all those years ago. Others, especially her fans, might have totally forgotten about her childhood roots. But one thing’s for sure – Selena Gomez herself will never forget where she came from, and what her past was like. It’s been one hell of a journey for the young pop star, and by the looks of this paparazzi photo, the star hasn’t lost touch with her inner child.
She is seen playfully messing around on a swing set at a playground, and for just a moment, it seems like Selena is still that same girl who once starred in Barney & Friends. Never change Selena, never change.
Perez Hilton quoted the pop star as saying, “I remember my mom would run out of gas all of the time and we’d sit there and have to go through the car and get quarters and help her get gas because she never liked to ask my grandparents for money.” She continued by saying, “I remember having a lot of macaroni and cheese but my mom never made it seem like it was a big deal. She was really strong around me. Having me at 16 had to have been a big responsibility. My mom gave up everything for me, had three jobs, supported me sacrificed her life for me.”
