Selena Gomez: I’m More Comfortable With My Sexuality Now — New Interview

Selena has already graduated to more mature roles, and now she’s talking openly about sensuality in a new interview.

With Wizards of Waverly Place behind her, 19-year-old Selena Gomez is busy plotting her next step. Currently on tour in South America, where she debuted a set of revealing new costumes, Selena has already signed on to star in Spring Breakers, which will reportedly shine a whole new light on the former Disney Channel starlet. Now, in an in-depth interview with Cosmopolitan, Selena reveals that she’s growing up, and “gradually working toward becoming more confident in being a woman.”

Interestingly, the multi-talented Selena — who admits that she “didn’t even know what sensual meant” when she was 15 — says that a photographer once told her to smile more because “she looked too sensual when she wasn’t smiling.”

Now that she’s a little bit older, the megastar is “getting fully comfortable with that aspect of herself,” though she says that she’s not working toward “necessarily being a sex symbol or anything.”

We think Selena treated this topic with a lot of class, and we admire her for being so candid with her fans!

Are you liking this new side of Selena, HollywoodLifers?

oh come on people. everybody grows up. she was a kids star and its not like she started talking about stuff like this a few years earlier, some things are off but she said ‘gradually’. and plus, just because she’s had that image of being a kids star she can’t stay like that forever, duh. anybody who wants an actual career of course doesn’t want that image.

Hopefully, she’ll do better than Miley, and know which end of the tube to lick with her tongue.

When I first read the title “I’m comfortable with my sexuality now” I honestly though she was going to say she’s lesbian or bi. Woops, sorry Selena.

I get that Selena is growing up, but everyone knows her as a KIDS star, not some adult who gets into sexual movies and R-rated movies. No kid whose a fan wants her to change, and retire from being a teenager. INCLUDING ME!!!:(

LOL well sad but true..Everyone grows up..and just because she was a Disney star does not mean she has to be a virgin forever. She has the right to mature and change. Her fans just need to trust her and let her be. Hopefully she’s not gonna become a lil hoe. And hopefully once she starts having sex, she would stick with one partner, and get marry. Thats my opinion.
