Selena Gomez talks about her friendships and feuds in an upcoming Seventeen cover story.
The performer says that despite Lorde’s apparent problem with her , she has respect for the teenage New Zealander’s talents.
Gomez says, “I recently did an interview and they asked me who I thought was up-and-coming and making a difference. I said, ‘She doesn’t like me, but Lorde.’ I’m going to support her whether she likes me or not because I think she’s doing great things.”
“I’ve never met her, but she’s extremely talented, and she has a voice that she likes to use, and I think that’s great,” explains the “Come & Get It” singer. “Some day I will see her and we’ll be cool.”
Of course, Gomez has strong friendships with other female superstars.
She tells Seventeen , “I love my girl friends more than I’ve loved any of my boyfriend because they have supported me, loved me, and always stood by my side. Some girls will drop you in five seconds for the right guy. That’s not how it’s supposed to be.”
“That’s why I love Demi [Lovato] and Taylor [Swift] — they support females and love to have that empowerment!” explains Gomez. “I wish girls would stop hurting each other.”
She credits Lovato with helping her learn to speak her mind.
“You can’t be afraid of what people are going to say, because you’re never going to make everyone happy,” says Gomez. “Girls are scared of saying what they want. So when you don’t like something, you have to say it. Demi taught me that.”
She continues, “Just saying it out loud is the first step to taking away the fear. It took me a long time to be able to say what I wanted — even with my parents. I tried to beat around the bush, but
I realized if I just said what I was thinking, I would feel so much better. It’s not easy, but there’s a way to do it.” So what led to Gomez’s big 2013? The star says the past year “is when I really started feeling powerful.”
She’d felt that she’d become “very stale with my music, and I realized that I was doing things for other people.”
“Then I turned 20, went through a really bad breakup, and realized I needed to pick up everything – I needed to have ‘Come & Get it’ be amazing,” says Gomez. “I wanted it all to be me. I was tired of feeling defeated. All this time, I was so pissed trying to figure out why I felt like such an underdog, and I finally realized I just wasn’t ready.”
She adds, “I’m glad it’s taken me this long to get where I am because now I’m ready for it.”
