Selena Gomez says she dated someone for a year who didn’t let her be herself and all her friends and family hated!

Selena Gomez normally stays very mum about her relationships, but the 19-year-old former Disney darling recently opened up about a boyfriend previous to Justin Bieber who didn’t treat her well at all. We hope it wasn’t either Taylor Lautner or Nick Jonas!

“I wasn’t myself for a year. I think that was really damaging. I felt like it was me who was always trying to be perfect for him,” Selena told Top of the Pops Magazine. “I always dressed nice. I don’t think he ever saw me in sweatpants — and I love sweatpants.”

She added, “I dare someone to try and change me again.”

Selena has had a slew of A-list boyfriends, including Taylor Lautner in 2009, when he was shooting New Moon and she was working on Ramona and Beezus, and Nick Jonas in 2008 and again in 2010.

The triple threat performer, who is currently on tour with her band, The Scene, shared some more about her mystery relationship, saying, “I’d always be well-mannered and go to his favourite restaurants or whatever. There was a point where I lost myself completely. I didn’t smile as much, I didn’t laugh as much. I wasn’t a goofball. I didn’t get up and dance like I usually do.”

Selena admits she changed herself for her old guy, but got back to normal shortly after they broke up. “And when that one ended, I didn’t know where I was,” she said. “But I got it back and was really happy. My family were happy to have me back.”

After watching Selena with Justin Bieber throughout the last several months, it’s obvious she loves to let loose and have a good time. The couple openly frolics on the beach, dines at low key restaurants and is always laughing and smiling. It’s nice to know Selena feels like she can finally be herself and doesn’t have to change for a guy!

Which boyfriend do YOU think she was talking about? Sound off below!
