With her new album, Selena Gomez is clearly hoping to revamp her image, and finally be taken seriously as an adult artist in the entertainment industry.
As such, she’s been very honest in her recent interviews, discussing everything from her Lupus diagnosis, to her past loves, to her body image and the fact that she chose to pose completely nude on the cover of Revival.
Now, the “Good For You” singer is opening up about her sexuality, and what she had to say left some people surprised.
While speaking with PrideSource, Gomez was asked about last year’s rumors that she and Cara Delevingne were more than friends, and whether or not those reports bothered her.
“Honestly, I loved it. I didn’t mind it,” she replied. “Especially because they weren’t talking about other people in my life for once, which was wonderful.”
“Honestly, though, she’s incredible and very open and she just makes me open,” the 23-year-old added of Delevingne. “She’s so fun and she’s just extremely adventurous, and sometimes I just want that in my life, so I didn’t mind it. I loved it.”
Gomez also says that she’s questioned her sexual preferences, and that she believes that’s a completely normal thing to do.
“Oh, I think everybody does, no matter who they are,” she explained. “I do, yeah, of course. Absolutely. I think it’s healthy to gain a perspective on who you are deep down, question yourself and challenge yourself; it’s important to do that.”
