Although she’s on top of the world these days, she didn’t have an easy rise to fame. “When I was 11 years old, I had a grown woman who was a casting director tell me I was not strong enough to carry the lead in any project. Now I’m doing things that I love, and I’m working really hard. I never want to play the victim or anything, but of course everybody deals with it.”
In the September issue of ‘Glamour’ the starlet shows off her playful side with a bright pink lip and retro glasses — but she also opens up on the pressure she feels in the industry, what it’s really like dating Justin, and how she feels about social media!
Selena Gomez looks gorgeous in her latest spread for Glamour, where the star opens up about her life — and dating Justin Bieber! “I’m 19, so I feel like everything that I’m doing right now should not be taken too seriously. I should be able to have fun and enjoy where I’m at! So I don’t want to spend my time hiding or worrying about all of that,” she said.
Selena may be a fan of Facebook & Twitter, but she wasn’t shy when it came time to address the downside of social media. “I love that I can stay connected with my fans and be able to tell them what’s going on—their opinions are so important to me. But at the same time, it’s very weird. I think the Internet can be a great thing but also really evil. Something can instantly hurt your feelings. “
Here’s what the star had to say when it comes down to being a role model.”You have this pressure to fit in and you want people to like you. I try my best to be a good person and be the best I can be,” Selena said.
