Sometimes it is hard to remember that at 22-years old Selena Gomez is long since removed from her Disney Channel days, but she is reminding the world of just that in a sexy new photo shoot for V Magazine and even poses topless for the cover.
Wearing only high waisted booty short,s with her long hair in curls and showing off her back tattoo, Gomez looks sexy and confident so it is no surprise that in an intimate interview for the magazine conducted by none other than her Spring Breaker’s co-star James Franco, Gomez tells him, “I feel the best I’ve ever felt in my life.”
While the jury is still out on whether the she is actually in a relationship with DJ Zedd whom she has been spending a lot of quality time with after they teamed up to work on her newest album, she had no problem talking about past relationships and although she doesn’t name Justin Bieber outright, it’s fairly clear who she is speaking about.
“I think the next time [I have a boyfriend] will be much different…which will definitley not be anytime soon. That’s a growing up kind of thing. I was 18 years old, and it was my first love. The older I get, I’m guarding certain things more.”
“When you’re young and you’re being told so many different things…it almost felt like all we had was each other,” she continued. “Like the world was against us in a way. It was really weird but incredible.”
Gomez then went on to reveal even more about her life and living in the spotlight, which eventually caused her to turn inwards, “There were a few months where I was a little depressed,” she admitted.
“I wouldn’t leave [my home] as much. I think I drove myself crazy for a little bit. It was just easier to say, ‘Hey, do you mind running to the grocery store and picking up some stuff? I don’t want to get photographed.'”
Things have only been on the rise for her since then though because as well as a possible new relationship, and new music, Gomez is currently filming, The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving, which she stars in alongside Paul Rudd.
“I don’t read anything about me anymore at all. I don’t spend my time tiptoeing around certain things, because the things I’m going to do aren’t bad. I’ll be 23 soon and I could go to a bar or go to the movies. I could do what I like,” the fiery star added.
