Selena Gomez, the 23-year-old American singer, bared her heart to her fans about her relationship with ex-beau Justin Bieber and also why she stopped wearing her purity ring.
The ‘Love will remember’ singer, in a bare-all interview with the UK’s Sunday Times assured her fans that Jelena days are over for her. However, she said that the internet is not allowing her fans to forget her old relationship with the ‘Boyfriend’ singer as it wants to freeze the Jelena moments and keep repeating it.
She also confirmed to the tabloid that despite all the unpleasantness that surrounds her relationship with Bieber, she does not regret anything about it and admits that, ‘I didn’t think I was doing anything bad by falling in love’. The Jelena romance began in 2010 and ended last year. She also added that there is so much publicity for the ‘perfect thing’ and then it is considered good press to destroy that ‘perfection’. And if there is a teenager involved, the going can get even more difficult, she told the tabloid.
Another aspect that gained publicity was her decision to take off her purity ring during her relationship with Bieber. She said that she was given the ring when she was 13 years old, by her dad who took it to church and got it blessed. Her dad used her as an example for the other kids to follow, she claimed. But as she grew older (it was only a coincidence that she began dating Justin Bieber too at that time), it struck her that the purity ring was not for her.
She was not embarrassed when she had it and now also when she has taken it off, she is not embarrassed, said the ‘The heart wants what it wants’ singer’. It is unfortunate that her actions are being used for publicity stunts, but she makes an effort to remain unaffected by the brouhaha, Selena Gomez added. The most important thing she has learnt is to ensure that her next romantic relationship will be something very special and dear to her and then there will be nothing to hide.
