Selena is talking. The former Disney star opened up about her transition to full-blown star, becoming a Sundance actress and what it’s like to be the most popular girl in America in a new interview for the March issue of W magazine.
When asked about leaving her Disney record label, Gomez compared her career growth with “Hannah Montana,” aka Miley Cyrus.
“Every single girl has done it completely differently,” Gomez answered diplomatically. “Obviously she wouldn’t want to be doing what I’m doing, and I wouldn’t want to be doing what she’s doing. But I’m a fan of her music — I don’t know if she’d say that about me.”
And as for rumors that the two ever had bad blood between them, Gomez boiled down the issue of liking the same boy — singer Nick Jonas.
“We never feuded. We both liked the same guy when we were 16,” Gomez told W. “It was just a Hilary Duff – Lindsay Lohan thing: ‘Oh, my God, we like the same boy!’ We are now completely settled in our own lives.”
And while Gomez is certainly settled, there are two topics she’s sort of over: her relationship with ex Justin Bieber (“I honestly am so done”) and her life being treated like a tabloid.
Luckily, Gomez says her large social media following allows her to control the story and change the narrative when she wants to.
Gomez has recently hit the road promoting her album “Revival.” What do you think of the grown up Disney star?
