Read excerpts from “The Emancipation of Selena Gomez” interview with GQ magazine below…


Selena On Being In The Spotlight
“We’re easy targets. Every single kid who was brought up like this is an easy target. It’s disgusting, because it’s interesting to grown adults that these kids go through weird things because they’re figuring out, ‘Do I like this? Do I love this? Maybe I love this person. Oh, I’m exposed to this, people are reporting my every move and this and that because of Instagram and Twitter and you can find out everything.’ There’s a difference between being a fan — there’s a difference between that and what you have to do. Because it’s, I don’t know, fun, maybe? It’s like watching a car crash as you’re driving past it. You want to watch it.”

Selena On Whether She’d Fast-Forward If She Could
“No, because I’m not that stupid. And I get it. I just have to be patient. It’s slowly dissolving the older I get. And I just have to be patient and make great things with quality, from producing to singing to acting. And one by one, I will be able to change the dialogue and people won’t care about everything that’s happened to me.”

“I chose this. So I’m not gonna sit here and say, ‘Oh, my God, poor me, I didn’t have a normal childhood.’ I don’t give a f*ck about that.”


Selena On The Weirdness Of Fame
“When you’re around four people and everybody has the champagne glass, and somebody says something and they laugh but they didn’t say a joke. [Fame] that situation all the time… Or when P. Diddy gave me his valet ticket once. Do you know what I mean? Because he thought I was the valet lady.”

“It’s either of two extremes. Either you’re going to succumb to it and be surrounded by all the noise and enjoy it and get the rush from it, or you’re going to be so far off of it because you don’t trust anyone or think any of it’s genuine. That’s the girl that I am. Look, I see all of it. I don’t care — I actually laughed hysterically when [the Diddy incident] happened. But I get it. I know what all of it is.”

Selena On Going To Rehab
“No, no, no, no, no,” Gomez clams up when asked about it. First off, this is something that everyone always wants to fixate on. I got diagnosed with lupus. My mom had a very public miscarriage. So I had to cancel my tour. I needed time to just be okay. And I was going through [chemotherapy] and I went to two different locations for those treatments. It’s really frustrating, because I am 100 percent allowed to have that… My past seems to be way more fascinating for people than my future, which bums me out… I don’t ever really like to sit and dwell on what that experience was. Was it fun? No. Is it fun to have it? No.”

Selena On Visiting A Children’s Hospital Afterward
“There was this kid that wouldn’t look me in the eye at all. And I wear my emotions on my face, as you just have witnessed. And I don’t care, that’s who I am. I wanted to get his attention, even though maybe it was too much. So I just said, ‘Ask me anything you want.’ And he was the first person that I told, besides my best friend and family, because he asked me, ‘Have you ever dealt with anything like this?’ And I said, ‘I have lupus. I was in the ICU for two and a half weeks. I was in this exact same room.’ And it was the first time that he looked at me.”

“I’ve had worse things said about me.”

Selena On If She Never Left Texas
“I would’ve fallen in love and gone to school. I think I’d maybe be thinking of having a family and kids now, at 24, which would be this year.”

Selena On Moving On To Mature Movie Roles
“I’m young, and I look younger. So the roles that I want to go for, it’s all about how the face is. I can play like I’m 16 still. Doesn’t really work for the things I want to do. I want to have an experience that I would go a little bit stir-crazy with. I like people pushing a little bit.”

Gomez’s GQ issue will first hit newsstands in New York and Los Angeles on April 19, before going nationwide on April 26.
