Selena Gomez: Justin Bieber Is a 'Hopeless Romantic'

Selena Gomez: Justin Bieber Is a 'Hopeless Romantic'

Selena Gomez rocks a Dolce&Gabbana corset on the cover of Elle‘s July 2012 issue.

Here’s what the 19-year-old singer and actress had to share:

On beau Justin Bieber renting out L.A.’s Staples Center for a private Titanic screening: “If I’ll share anything with you, it’s that he really is a hopeless romantic. I had just mentioned it in the car – all I said is that I really want to see Titanic again, and then …”

On growing up poor: “I can remember about seven times when our car got stuck on the highway because we’d run out of gas money … [but my mom still] saved up to take me to concerts. She took me to museums, aquariums, to teach me about the world, about what’s real.”

On working with Disney: “[It] is a machine, so people automatically assume that you can’t work for the channel unless you act and sing and dance and sign up for all that. That’s absolutely not true. I always did everything the way I wanted to do it.”

On choosing roles: “I get offered the teenybopper movies, and I’ve done that. I haven’t done a mega-hundred-billion-dollar Transformers movie, but that’s not what I want to do either.”

    @YouSawNothing: why not? At least she has enough lips for it. I think it looks horrible when you have thin lips and wear red lipstick.

    @GYL: No, she has said in an interview before she doesn’t speak Spanish. And she isn’t just Latina – she’s Caucasian too. Her mom is white.

    Are you that dumb! She was famous before him and he hasn’t made her any more famous then she already is! If anything the only thing he has done is make his fans angry and jealous by sending death threats to her.

    People need to stop saying Bieber made her famous, what she wasn’t famous before him!

    She is dating Beiber for the fame. You can tell she looks irritated whenever they are together.

    Christine Says:


    Tweens might have known who she was before Beiber, but not your average person. Her songs and albums didn’t do well at all compared to other pop stars before Beibs.

    @GYL: Half Mexican her mom is WHITE!!!

    mel Says:

    The article should be called the prostitution process of Selena Gomez. Please, she’s dating Bieber so she can get rid of her image. The only people that would watch anything she’s in are 13 year old girls and she’s posing like a ho.

    lila Says:

    @mel – agreed, ten hundred percent. Not to mention the fact that calling someone, namely your boyfriend, a hopeless romantic is not necessarily a very nice thing….just saying.

    you’re only offered teeny movies because that’s all you can get with your limited talent! no director will cast u as the lead in an A-lister movie, people with actual talent can get there! plus you’re just cute..and cuteness is tolerated in teenage movies, NOT IN MEGA-MILLION DOLLAR MOVIES OR SERIOUS MOVIES!!! ‘I’M NOT DOING THAT EITHER’ LOL..she’ll pounce on an opportunity like that, only if she gets there..just hold on to ur tweens, cuz u know it deep down that they’re the only reason why ur famous with their tween heartthrob’s arm candy! don’ talk big, cuz your ‘BIG’ has a limited lifespan! lindsay was a good actor so people thought she’d go further before she turned into a train-wreck, whereas the majority of disney stars don’t have it in them to make it really big, i’m talking about the selena gomez generation. what does miley do these days?? just talk about gay issues and tweet engagement ring, that’s coz she can’t be considered a serious actor with her limited talents, and so is the case with selena. Demi, i think, is the only one, whose got some vocals to make her singing career a little longer than the others!

    She looks absolutly beautiful.

    selena has sucha bad voice that her vocals can’t even be auto-tuned to make the songs sound like those of katy perry and kesha’s…it’s like she’s reading in them!!! i think those who download or buy her albums, are literally DEAF!

    Zileuton Says:

    she has sucha bad voice that it can’t even be auto-tuned to make it sound like that of katy perry or kesha’s.., in other words, make it sound pop-like!!! it’s pathetic really! it’s like she’s reading in her songs. people who listen to her are definitely deaf!

    Bless Selena’s mother for introducing her to the arts. IMO, that was the motivating factor in this girl’s success. Good mom, and whether she was Latino or not was of no importance.

    She looks like she has hypothermia with that lipstick.

    She looks great, however something about her personality turns me off….I also don’t think she’s a great talent :(

    lala Says:

    She has a great mum respect! She looks great and her red lips are sexy :) wow im impressed. To the ones saying she has no talent: read what the directors say about her. They are all impressed by her talent.

    mel Says:

    @lala: They are supposed to be praising her. What do you want them to say to the magazine? Yeah, I cast her because I needed financing and she has no real talent so she dates a boy whose balls haven’t dropped yet.

    ProudGomezHomie Says:

    that’s so rude for you to say. Nicole Kidman says “Selena is the BEST ACTRESS OF THIS GENERATION” and Demi just get the spotlight for CAMP ROCK cause Disney offered it to SELENA FIRST but she refused cause she said she’s not yet ready to face her singing career.

    ProudGomezHomie Says:

    and she’s half Italian too cause of her mom :)

    ProudGomezHomie Says:

    TRUE! and BIEBER is not the one who makes her show an EMMY AWARD WINNING SHOW – TWO TIMES IN A ROW!!! Against Hannah Montana and iCarly :) It’s her ACTING CAREER not Justin Bieber.

    ProudGomezHomie Says:

    @ha ha: it’s a ROLE! C’mon! She doesn’t even know how to smoke! and she goes to BAR and DRINKS WATER!

    I read a blind item of certain former Disney stars coking up and laughing at their old shows. Demi finally came out. Who’s to say Selina isnt a big cokehead, too? Justn prob is.

    Fefe Says:

    She seems like a nice person and certainly down-to-earth, but she is seriously overrated as an actress and especially as a singer.

    Wow, thats shocking to here. I almost have to think you are raging jealous because I think she has the best voice and most unique. I love all her songs. I wish she would write more. She is a true talent. Sweet girl too.
