Selena Gomez says it’s important to question your sexuality

Selena Gomez is slowly but surely moving away from her squeaky clean Disney star image and, some day soon, she’ll shake all of those mentions of her infamous ex whenever she’s mentioned in the press. But the 23-year-old actress/singer is maturing in the limelight, something that not all young women her age have been able to handle with the same kind of grace Selena does.

In a new interview, Selena (who has a sultry new single called “Good For You”) talks about gay fans and friends, including out model/actress Cara Delevingne. When asked how she felt about lesbian rumors that were sparked by her hanging out with Cara, she joked, “I’ve made it! … Honestly, I loved it. I didn’t mind it. 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. 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.”

As to if she’s ever questioned her sexuality, Selena said, “Oh, I think everybody does, no matter who they are. 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.”


Selena also said she has a “long list” of women she’d choose to play her on-screen love interest, but does note she’d choose definitely pick model Suki Waterhouse. Suki should be so lucky!
