Selena Gomez covers the December issue of TEEN VOGUE.
Gomezhas been in the entertainment business for well over 10-years. And even though she’s been singing and acting on our television screens for more than a decade, Gomez says she is just getting started.
Check out some highlights from her Teen Vogue interview below!
On finding love:
“You fall in love and it completely consumes you. So a part of you is broken when that’s gone. And part of you wants to have that rebellious feeling where you’re just like, forget it- I can do anything I want. I’ve tried it, and I’ve never been that girl. I’m always going to be the girl you want to take home to your parents, not for the night.”
On Taylor Swift:
“The difference between Taylor and me is she was sixteen with the confidence of a 25-year-old. Actually I should say 80-year-old because she’s such an old soul. I was not that way. I was very sheltered until about eighteen or nineteen. I still live at home, and I’m 21! She does inspire me like crazy, but I wouldn’t change my path because it allowed me to figure out all that stuff and do it on my own.”
On her love for junk food:
“I eat junk. I’m from the South, so I love Mexican food, greasy pasta, and fried things. I do try, every now and then, to put something in my body that will be good, but, honestly, I’ve never liked working out. I need to be active in some way, though – that’s why I kind of secretly do it for my show. We have thirteen choreographed pieces, and it’s a 90-minute set. I consider that my workout!”
Willow on her style and attire:
‘I wear anything I feel like,’ she adds of her own sense of style. ‘If I want to put on a pair of Converse with a pencil stuck through them, I will.’
Willow on being surprised on how well “Whip My Hair” has been doing:
‘When I first put [‘Whip My Hair’] out, everyone was like, “Willow, Willow, I love your song!” And I was like, “Really?'”‘ recalls the pop star.
Willow on what the song means:
“Whipping your hair means not being afraid to be yourself.”
And it is her famous parents she has to thank for her ambition.
Willow on being inspired by her parents:
“‘I used to go on tour with my mom and dad and see what they were doing, and I’d tell them, “Oh, I wanna do that, I wanna do that,”‘ she recalls.”
Willow on her regular family life:
“It’s pretty much a regular family,” “At dinner we talk about ‘What did you do today? What did you wear today?’ Not anything about work.”
