Selena Gomez has been a rising star in recent years thanks to her Disney Channel success; the actress/singer has moved to film and also stars in ad campaigns, including for her own brand of perfume. But all that success--and her long relationship with one of the biggest pop stars in the world--tends to put guys off.
"I actually talked to Katy Perry about guys who are intimidated by strong girls," she said in a recent interview with Seventeen. "I haven't found someone yet who could understand my lifestyle, support it, love me through it, and not be threatened by it. It's hard."
The 21-year old has a strong support system in her girlfriends, however, and says that although she had a falling out with childhood friend Demi Lovato, the two have reconciled. Now, she says, she can see the issues her old friend was having--an eating disorder, among other things--and can deal with them a little better.
"Demi's very, very strong. She's the only person that I would tell the deepest, darkest secrets to. The only person. I've known her since we were 7, and we did fall apart for a while," Gomez said. "She was going through things and I was so young and it was confusing. I processed it saying, 'OK, I don't understand what she's going through so I'm just going to do this.' I don't think it was fair, and I'm so happy that I have her back in my life now."
Despite being seen with ex Justin Bieber recently, rumors of a rekindled romance haven't been confirmed. Gomez hasn't commented on Bieber's recent legal issues or his arrest early Thursday morning in Miami for DUI, but the arrest revealed that a young model was in the car with him at the time, which is bound to get him into some trouble with his longtime flame.
