Selena Gomez is featured in a new article from Parade magazine where she talks about her career, being a good role model, and her romantic life!
Selena knows that she’s in a position to set a good example for kids. “I think that it’s part of the job where you turn into a role model,” she says. “It’s not something I aimed toward. But now that it’s kind of a title, I do embrace it, because it’s very sweet to have little girls have posters and T-shirts of you.”
Admitting to making mistakes, Selena says she just hopes she can keep them to herself! She also refuses to deny or confirm any of her romantic relationships. “I love talking about boys. I used to worry about it, but I decided that it’s wrong not to go out to eat with friends or to the movies, because people might see me. It’s exhausting to shield yourself all the time. Still, it seems that boyfriends are all people care about when they write about me.”
Even more important than boys is her BFF Demi Lovato. She and Demi have bonded over being stars at such a young age. “On tour and on our shows, we are forced to be mature. So when we get together, we’re able to be 16. We have sleepovers and do each other’s hair and makeup and all that stuff.”
And Selena insists that she is anything but spoiled. “It irritates me when people think I live such a special life and that I’m spoiled. I’m an only child, but my grandmother babysat 13 kids at once, so I grew up with a bunch of kids around me. I had lunch at Subway today. My favorite food is fried pickles at Hooters.”
