Selena Gomez Reveals Why She Doesn't Retaliate Against Hate (Exclusive Interview)

Selena Gomez‘s new movie Hotel Transylvania 2 is in theaters NOW and she sat down with to discuss the film, her new album Revival, and so much more.

Here is what the 23-year-old entertainer had to share with us:

On which of her songs would be Mavis’ favorite: “I think Mavis would like ‘Me and the Rhythm’ or ‘Rise.’ I think they’re both really fun songs about being free and in the moment and not really taking no for an answer, not bowing down.”

On which of her un-released songs means the most to her: “‘Kill Em With Kindness.’ I think people won’t even realize that their words are so meaningful and I think people need to hear that a little bit more. There’s just a lot that happens and now with social media and how much access people can have to your heart and your feelings, it’s a little frightening. And I think that it’s very important to understand that if you combat it and don’t give in to it, it will just make you feel so much better. I will have such a heavy conscience if I retaliate all the hate I get. Trust me, I want to, but I do feel like that’s always been the best thing for me, is turning the other cheek.”

On her favorite foods: “I love tamales, that’s my favorite. And rice and beans of course. My grandma used to make this homemade salsa that was bomb, but she would actually get the jalapenos and crush them into pieces, which I loved. It was so good. I’m hungry.”
