Selena Gomez does not regret her roller coaster of a romance with Justin Bieber. The 23-year-old songstress recently told the UK’s Sunday Times (August 23):
“I didn’t think I was doing anything bad by falling in love. There’s such an emphasis on people being the perfect thing and then destroying them because it’s good press. Throw in the fact that you’re a teenager — it makes it more difficult.”
“It’s difficult for people to separate us. The Internet wants to freeze this moment in time and constantly repeat it.”
Though her relationship with Justin is now a thing of the past, it was during their courtship when Selena decided to take off her purity ring, which she began wearing at 13.
“I’m not embarrassed to say that. I’m also not embarrassed to say that the ring has come off. I got it when I was 13 and I respect so much what it represented, but it isn’t for everyone.”
Nearly a year they broke up, Selena is ready to fall in love again.
“The next relationship will be something dear to me. There is no way I will ever hide my life.”
