“I’m just like every 19-year-old girl. If you’re in love, you’re in love to the fullest, and you just want to go to the movies, hang out, and be as normal as possible. I’m fortunate that I’ve found someone who has that philosophy.”
Gomez also admits she once “wasted” a year of her life with a famous ex-boyfriend.
She said, “I was in a relationship previously where I had to hide everything and it wasn’t my choice. I had to go through different exits and take separate cars and do the craziest things, and it just really wasn’t worth it.”
As for love in general she’s all for it!
She adds, “[Love] is the most powerful thing. When it comes to my family, friends, a relationship … it centers me. You only live once, and I want to be proud of everything that I do and just have fun. I want to be able to say that I had a really fulfilled, fun life.”
The singer – who is taking a break from music to concentrate on acting – also dishes on her good friend Demi Lovato.
She reveals, “We didn’t have that much money coming out here [to LA], so we were living together to share expenses. There were seven of us girls living in one loft, including sisters and moms and everything. It was really interesting. There was a point when she and I were going our different ways, because we were figuring out who we were. Now, we’re better than ever.
