Selena Gomez wants us all to know she has moved passed her Disney princess days.
The 22-year-old posed in nothing but denim booty shorts for her sexy cover for V Magazine. Showing Justin Bieber what he’s missing?
Selena looks almost like a sexy doll in large hoop earrings, tiny denim shorts, and curly hair with a red polka dot bow.
Her accompanying interview was done by her former “Spring Breakers” co-star, James Franco.
Selena talked about her volatile relationship with Justin Bieber, saying, “I was 18 years old, and it was my first love. The older I get, I’m guarding certain things more. After being put through the scrutiny, I understand what it is.”
She continued, “When you’re young and you’re being told so many different things…it almost felt like all we had was each other, like the world was against us, in a way. It was really weird but it was incredible. I would never take it back in a million years. You live and you learn, you know?”
Gomez talked about the anxiety and depression over the romance, saying, “There were a few months where I was a little depressed, where I wouldn’t leave [the house] as much. I think I drove myself crazy for a little bit. It was just easier to say, ‘Hey, do you mind running to the grocery store and picking some stuff up, I don’t want to get photographed’. I’m finally getting a little bit more comfortable. It’s a process.”
The singer is in a better place now and looks forward to this year.
She explained, “I think this year is going to be incredible. I feel the best I’ve ever felt in my life. I’m super stoked that I’ve got some bumps on me, some scars, some bruises. I actually really love that. And I don’t mean that in a morbid way.”
What about her new romance with Zedd?
The singer said, “I don’t read anything about me anymore at all. I don’t spend my time tiptoeing around certain things, because the things I’m going to do aren’t bad. I’ll be 23 soon and I could go to a bar or go to the movies. I could do what I like.”
Selena’s issue of V magazine hits newsstands on February 26.
DJ Zedd posted a photo on Monday teasing the release of “I Want You to Know”, posting a cute photo of himself with Selena.
Selena is shown pretending like she is about to bite his ear, but Zedd isn’t worried in the least. He is shown making a silly face.
Zedd posted the caption, “1 MORE WEEK until #IWantYouToKnow w/ @selenagomez.”
Selena and Zedd reportedly spent Valentine’s day together, taking their friendship into something more.
