Selena Gomez has come a long way from her Disney Channel days. Ditching her t-shirts and converse for a more sophisticated look on the July 2012 cover of Elle, Sel is proving to her fans that she, too, is growing up. The teenage triple-threat opened up about herself, being honest and yet remaining private, especially about her relationship with superstar Justin Bieber:
“If I’ll share anything with you, it’s that he really is a hopeless romantic. I had just mentioned it in the car – all I said is that I really want to see Titanic again, and then…”
Well, we all know what happened next. Justin rented out The Staples Center in Los Angeles for a romantic dinner and movie. What a guy. Although Sel has had a great couple of years, she didn’t shy away from speaking about her past. She spilled:
“I can remember about seven times when our car got stuck on the highway because we’d run out of gas money. [My mother] saved up to take me to concerts. She took me to museums, aquariums, to teach me about the world, about what’s real.”
