Selena Gomez Has Yet to Find a Guy Who Isn't Threatened By Her

Selena Gomez Has Yet to Find a Guy Who Isn't Threatened By Her

Selena Gomez reminds her fans to “Dream” in an Elizabeth & James t-shirt on the cover of Seventeen magazine’s latest issue, on newsstands February 4.

Here’s what the 21-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On feeling powerful: “This year is when I really started feeling powerful. I had always been the underdog secretly. I was on Disney when it was Miley [Cyrus], the Jonas Brothers, and Demi [Lovato]. I questioned the way I looked, acted, sang, and wrote. Then I turned 20, went through a really bad breakup, and realized I needed to have ‘Come & Get It’ be amazing. I wanted it all to be me. I’m glad it’s taken me this long to get where I am because now I am ready for it.”

On not changing for a guy: “I actually talked to Katy Perry about guys who are intimidated by strong girls. 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. I do think I might scare some guys, because I’m like, ‘I want to change the world! I have dreams! What do you want to do?’ But I only know how to be me.”

On her fans: “I don’t feel like I can do enough for my fans. I work a lot, I work hard, and I get tired. But when you walk onstage and see these people who wait hours outside just to see you, it’s the greatest thing in the world.”

    She’s so pretty and she seems very down to earth. cool

    Selena is truly a great person by the way she carries herself PUBLICLY.
    But, she doesn’t sing live well and hasn’t broken through in post-Disney acting. Her Net Worth is under $10 million. Why would Justin or any other guy be threatened by her? She is emotionally sensitive.
    If Selena says she is READY to take control of her career, then I don’t think canceling Stars Dance in Asia/Australia was a good idea. Was it really Lupus?

  • Jeni

    So you think 10 million is nothing? Do you have anywhere near that amount in your bank account… she was talking about guys in general. Not all of them have as much money as Justin. Selena is classy and confident. She’s too grown up for most of the “boys” her age.

  • lily

    @AEM: oh she never had lupus i think that was some rumors that came up because her face got so swollen although it could easily be alcohol. she cancelled her tours for poor sales since she isnt as well known as she is in the us. Selena says shes “grown up” and boys are threatened by her but she is yet to not be attached to justin bieber. after that segway crap and this interview, im guessing the interview was before the segway – meaning you cant really take much of what she said if she went straight back to hanging with justin. was it good for her image? not really. did it gain her publicity which she could later milk in articles like this and her new movie? clearly.

  • alex

    selena has no talent whatsoever. she never sings live and her concerts are mediocre. every single time i’ve seen her perform on television, she is always lip singing.

    she is the definition of an actress turned singer. all about image, nothing about the talent or severe lack there of.

  • Maggi

    Keep on dreaming selena, keep on dreaming about being a strong woman, you and katy.

  • ish

    you’re not powerful if you keep it up with bieber. you still have a very long way to go…

  • violet

    enjoy this fame while it lasts cuz its fading hella fast.

  • Oliver

    I could be that guy who understands and supports her lifestyle, no way would i feel threatened. I wish i was that guy, her guy. :(

  • Cate

    It’s sweet how much she loves and appreciates her fans.

  • David

    The man she is looking for is out there, but she needs to completely break up with Justin so that she can date other guys.

  • Paul

    Thank goodness she is only half Mexican.

  • Warren

    I love strong women. I’m not threatened by sexy Selena. Bring it on. Come and get it!

  • no way

    you are not powerful and no one is jealous of your lame lifestyle, and your chipmunk cheeks. I can lip synch too.

  • Monae

    It’s sad to say that she says she hasn’t met one person! Like Justin didn’t like her fame? Aww I hope she finds someone soon. Love you Selena.

  • Em

    @Jeni: I agree. I think that’s why her friendship with David Henrie grabbed peoples attention:)

  • Lou Lipschitz

    I would love to be that threatened and be able to wake up to that face and body every morning. Man up guys or turn your card in.

  • Jordan Taylor

    Well I guess this should state my honest opinion. Hi my name is Jordan Taylor. I’m a 21 year old black male. I have normal job working for fast food at kfc. I’ve been single for 3 years in hope to find what I don’t think exsist anymore around mid age.. a Girlfriend. Not to mention living in Indiana people seem to think I don’t exsist. Hard to believe I kinda understand Selena when she is mentioning she can’t find a guy. I’ve tryed number of times to go on dates with girls around my age and younger. All leading down to the rejection because I don’t drive a charger or have enough dollars in my bank account. ( yes i actually told a someone) honestly I never even gotten close to just a simple date to the movies or out to eat. 2013 I spent my entire year alone. I took myself on dates to the movies, bike rides, out to eat , ect. Learning to love myself. I also began practicing abstinence in the year 2012 . Its 2014 and I’m turning 22 in feb. I’m hoping this feeling of loniness does not last forever. 3 years of no sex and being a male is suicide.( I’m starting to gain a reputation) my one true love remains myself as I press forward with my life. I only hope to share this information wanting Selena to know that she is not alone in this fight. As I said I’m 21 and am remaining abstinent. I really don’t want to see my favorite female star fall. I have no clue what the stars life is like or anything but we are all human so I can only say…. Follow your Heart. Much love and congratulations on your forwarding career. Don’t give up and stay true to yourself.
