Selena Gomez Talks About Being in the Public Eye, How ‘People Assume Things’
On paper, Selena Gomez is like any other 20-year-old girl. She’s got a couple jobs, she likes to hang with her friends and has an on-again off-again boyfriend. Then again, that’s only on paper.
In all actuality, Gomez is a famous actress and singer to pay her bills and that pesky boyfriend? Yup, that’s Justin Bieber. With all this taken into account, the ‘Come & Get It’ songstress still tries to maintain a semblance of normalcy in her life.
Gomez told Elvis Duran, “I’m in my twenties. I wanna have fun. I wanna enjoy my life and not have to worry about every single thing.” Preach, sista! Don’t let fame get in the way of enjoying your life!
She continued about keeping her private and public lives separate, explaining, “I think I’ve actually given enough of myself, if that makes sense. I feel within my music, and even how I handle myself in interviews, people think they know, but they really actually don’t…In a way, I like to keep myself a little bit private, but at the same time people do assume things.” Honey, even normal 20-year-olds with an on-again off-again BF are subject to assumptions, so it’s not just your celebrity…
The pop star dished that she does not yet have a title for her upcoming album, but she did have a bigger hand in writing the songs for the LP. And playing a bigger role in the production of her album made Gomez want every single song to sound like, as she said, “ear candy.” We’re patiently awaiting for said candy, Selena!
Gomez did not address her reunion with Justin Bieber, so we’ll just chalk that up to her wanting to keep her personal life private… Oh well!
