Selena Gomez Is Over Being Hated For Dating Justin Bieber: 'It Gets To Me Sometimes!'

Up until now, Selena Gomez has been understanding about Justin Bieber’s fans animosity toward her — but the negativity is starting to get to her and hurts her feelings!

Even though she’s one of the most envied girls in the world because she’s dating Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez has handled her boyfriend’s hating fans with grace, saying she understands what it’s like to have a crush on a celebrity and feel protective over them. However, the haters are starting to get to the 18-year-old starlet and she says she’s fed up.

“The negativity is very uncomfortable,” Selena told Bliss magazine. “I mean, like, everybody goes through it if they’re in high school. Someone might bully you or say mean things — it’s just a part of growing up — but when the whole world has an opinion on you and says things when they don’t even know you, it’s harsh. It gets to me sometimes.”

Even though the threats, hate stares and criticism bug her, Selena tries to take the high road.

“Ultimately, if you fight back, they’re winning. I know it’s hard, but let it slide and it’ll eventually go away,” she explained.

She added, “Although I can read a thousand wonderful comments, one bad comment will throw me. If I’m honest, I can be too sensitive sometimes, but I try not to focus on it. Paparazzi intrusion is constant and that part is not really normal, so whenever there is a situation like that, where I don’t feel normal or comfortable, it’s very awkward for me and most of the time you’ll see me not looking very happy! But you just have to learn to get on with it.”

We think Justin, 17, and Selena make an adorable couple, but can totally understand how their PDA and intense love for each other could make Beliebers hurt inside. Nevertheless, that’s no excuse to send death threats!
