Singer Selena Gomez has spoken about her former relationship with Justin Bieber, stating she wasn’t doing anything wrong by falling in love with him.
Selena also discussed wearing a purity ring her father gave her at age 13, but says she doesn’t feel bad that the ring came off.
The singer said she asked her father for the ring when she was just 13 years old.
“He went to the church and got it blessed,” Selena shared. “He actually used me as an example for other kids. I’m going to keep my promise to myself, to my family and to God.”
But the “Good For You” singer said she’s “not embarrassed” that the ring has now come off.
She stated, “I got it was I was 13 and I respect so much what it represented, but it isn’t for everyone”.
Selena has had a rough time with her highly publicized off/on relationship with Justin Bieber . They first stepped out as an official couple in 2001 at the Oscars.
The couple split for good last year.
Selena admitted, “It’s difficult for people to separate us. The Internet wants to freeze this moment in time and constantly repeat it.”
But she has no regrets about their relationship.
She explained, “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’re a teenager — it makes it more difficult.”
Gomez always said in her interview that she could always count on friend Taylor Swift, who has always been there for her.
She said, “I can count on one hand the people I could call and who would be there for me. Taylor is one of the greatest people.
“When I split with my first boyfriend [Nick Jonas, who also once sported a purity ring] and I was really sad about it, she flew into town with homemade cookies and a bunch of junk food.”
We are curious if Selena is a little hurt by photos of her ex-boyfriend Justin getting cozy with stunning model, Xenia Deli.
