Selena Gomez Gets Candid About Justin Bieber Relationship, Taking Off Her Purity Ring, & More

Selena Gomez is talking all things love and relationships in this brand new interview.

Here’s what the 23-year-old “Good for You” singer had to share with the U.K.’s Sunday Times:

On her relationship with Justin Bieber: “It’s difficult for people to separate us. The internet wants to freeze this moment in time and constantly repeat it…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.”

On her purity ring: “I said, ‘Dad, I want a promise ring.’ He went to the church and got it blessed. He actually used me as an example for other kids. I’m going to keep my promise to myself, to my family, and to God…Sometimes you have to lie to yourself to get through the criticism, and then you’re in your closet crying…It’s been like “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.”

On her friendship with Taylor Swift: “I can count on one hand the people I could call and who would be there for me. Taylor is one of the greatest people. When I split with my first boyfriend and I was really sad about it, she flew into town with homemade cookies and a bunch of junk food.”

    I think that everyone knew that Justin Bieber took that little slut Selena Gomez’s virginity. Bet that she has got loads of STDs from all the women that the paparazzi caught Justin cheating on her with as well.

    You are absolutely a vile, disgusting person. People like you are the reason so many girls have such low self-esteem issues.
    She is trying to be candid and open about her relationship with Justin Bieber in the interview and all you took from it was that “she’s a little slut?!” Why? Because she had sex with her long-term boyfriend who she loved at the time??

    There is only misery headed your way. You get what you put out into the world babe. God Bless x

    Maybe you should stop being a slut like Selena Gomez. You should be regretting giving up your purity and ring before marriage like that slutty bimbo.

    It didn’t actually take long at all for Justin Bieber to get Selena Gomez’s cherry either. Shows what a whore that little slut really is doesn’t it. They only started dating in February 2011 and that summer he successfully talked her into having sex with him in a private Palm Springs resort.

    I feel really sad to see how rude your words are and to actually realize that this is the reflection of how you treat and speak to yourself or that you have been taught to speak this way.

    Did Selena’s behaviors hurt you only because she made love with Justin Bieber?

    Why is it that a superstar like her, falling in love and made love with another superstar a slut?

    What does it leave you?

    Did it make you envious that she can do it and you cannot?

    Did you know her personally, instead of relying on one media source to judge her?

    I hope your life will be a happy one because you do need it otherwise you this is the kind of things you will say to others and I hope you will be able to be gentler with yourself.

    Did I read your comment right — she was already a slut when she had sex for a first time?

    You are genious! Incredible!

    That rude are you to say ok. She was the one that gave it to him. And she and ffollow him around until he got tired are her. Hayden should do the same thing with Rachel. Nibody tell nobody to give their body to a man if they don’t have to. Justin is better without her. He didn’t get her pregnant like Rachel got pregnant. At Justin got out are that relationship. Hope Hayden get the nerve to walk away from Rachel bilson like that. Hayden career haven’t been the same Rachel got back and gave herself like that. knowing he just wanted to have a good time and not have a baby right now. Didn’t amount to anything anyway. At least selena got back on her feet again. Not depending on no man to do nothing for her. But shr did usr Justin for publicity those years they was together. Don’t see why she mentioning it over.
