Selena Gomez is opening up!
The 27-year-old singer went on the Zach Sang Show on Friday afternoon, and got very real with radio host Zach Sang about what she’s been going through the last couple of years — namely, how she’s been “super, super single” in that time frame. The Lose You To Love Me singer also spoke at length about her new music, mental health, and her thoughts on looking for a love that’ll last forever.
You can watch (in full) the entire interview in the video clip (above) at the top of this post, but we’ve also pulled out a few highlight quotes that you probably need to first know about, too! First, the singer opens up a good deal more about being ‘super, super single’ for the past two years, and what that was like for her (below):
“I’ve been super, super single for two years. I want to know what that love will look like next for me. I want it to be real and I don’t want it to be co-dependent or messy or lack of communication. When you get older, you find people who are actually right for you, that are actually on the same wavelength as you. … I’m chillin’ right now you guys, honestly, that is so stressful. I’ve been having way too much fun being on my own. It sucked for the first year, I was like, ‘I just want to cuddle. I just want to watch something and be adored.’ But now it feels good, it feels awesome.”
And she’s also looking ahead into the future, content to do love ‘differently’ this time around (below):
“I would be very transparent. I don’t have room to buffer things that I need or that I want. I think girls can sometimes be scared of that, because we’re viewed as crazy or needy or overthinking things or dramatic. I understand sometimes, but I love being a girl and I love having the emotions I have, falling super deep and being passionate. It’s just about containing it and channeling it in the right areas. But I never want to lose the sense of love that I imagine it to be. I don’t want to be jaded or bitter from anything. I believe that it exists. I’m happy waiting for that for however long it takes because we’re going to be doing this forever.”
