As an actress and just as a person, I’ve kind of been in a little bit of a bubble. So it was so great for me to see where I could go as an actress and to be around incredible people who are much more experienced than I am, like Harmony [Korine], James [Franco], and Vanessa [Hudgens]. – Selena Gomez

Artistically, you want to be able to do a lot of things that can challenge you to not just stay in the same thing. – Selena Gomez

Being immersed in the fashion world is very addicting. I have to admit, at first, it was really overwhelming and I would get stressed about putting things together. Now, it’s like trying to figure out a puzzle piece, and I love that. – Selena Gomez

Always be yourself, there’s no one better! – Selena Gomez

This is a very superficial job. I sit in a chair for two hours and get hair and makeup done and talk about myself in interviews. That’s a very vain thing to do. And I do get caught up in it sometimes. – Selena Gomez

You can’t shut down, you can’t say, ‘What can I do to make this go away?’. You have to let it be painful and get through it. Every day gets better.

I love Dior. I’ve been wearing some of the really beautiful structured pieces – I love a deep neck and how it accentuates a woman in that area. And, of course, Louis Vuitton. I’ve honestly never met someone like Nicolas. He has a really fresh perspective on life in general. – Selena Gomez

I hadn’t really been in that world for too long. It was fun for me, but definitely wasn’t my world. When I went to my first Paris Fashion Week, I had been invited to the Louis Vuitton show by Nicolas. We met there. It was all organic and fun for me. – Selena Gomez

Dancing allows me to go away and not have to think of what I’m doing next. – Selena Gomez

My mom always told me if I love what I’m doing and I’m having fun then just continue to do it. But if it’s not fun for me anymore and I’m miserable, then I’m going to go back to Texas and quit it all, to be honest. – Selena Gomez

I think of myself more as an actress. I do my music because I’m very passionate about my music. I love making music. I love inspiring people. I love making great songs that are just really fun. But that’s all it usually is for me. I love touring and singing great songs. I don’t think I’ll ever win a Grammy one day, and I’m totally fine with that. I do work really hard when it comes to acting and I want to do that for a long time. – Selena Gomez

But I have to tell you, I get it all day, every day, I’m not sexy enough, or I’m not cool enough, or if I did this I would be accepted. Let me tell you one thing: the sexiest thing is class. I promise you that each and every one of you is made to be who you are. That is what’s so attractive and beautiful. Please don’t forget that, even when it gets hard. – Selena Gomez

The day I got my first letter from a fan, I felt like I’d been touched by an angel. – Selena Gomez

It’s always better to be real. – Selena Gomez

They tell me what to wear, how to look, what I should say, how I should be. Until recently I had given into that pressure, I lost sight of who I was. I listened to opinions of people and I tried to change who I am because I thought others would accept me for it. And I realized I don’t know how to be anything but myself. – Selena Gomez

I constantly find myself changing my mind all the time. One day, I want to do just acting and just that. One day I want to do music and just that. – Selena Gomez

People tell me what to do every single day. They think I’m boring. I’m Disney kid. So, there’s that. – Selena Gomez

There’s one thing I do wanna say. It’s that every single one of you are just beautiful the way you are, every message that I get from you guys it just hurts me. Beacuse , if there is one person who knows what its like to get bullied, I get bullied a lot but you guys are so beautiful, please don’t listen to any of that, ever, ever, ever from your school, from anything. You guys are perfect – Selena Gomez

I used to say that I wanted someone cute and nice, an actor too, so he’d get it. But now I think it would be good for me to date someone who’s not in the business. – Selena Gomez

I’m no beauty queen, I’m just beautiful me – Selena Gomez

These past years have been really transitional for me in every aspect – personally, emotionally and professionally. I was excited and nervous and anxious because I literally had nothing to fall back on. This is my own thing, it’s all me. I spent a year working on the record and really wanted to spend time on what it was going to represent and how it was going to represent me in this time in my life. – Selena Gomez

Disney is a machine, and I’m grateful for it, but I feel like being part of that environment made me crave the reaction from other projects even more. – Selena Gomez

I feel like there’s a moment, in every young girl’s life, whether it happens with your family, or a tragedy or death in your family, or a relationship, where there’s a turning point where you go from extremely hopeful and cheery to wondering whether you are okay with where you are. That’s always awkward. – Selena Gomez

Childhood decisions do not have to define you. – Selena Gomez

I don’t really like dressing up. Some people probably think actresses dress up everywhere they go. I’m in sweatpants half the time with my hair in a ponytail. – Selena Gomez

You are not defined by an Instagram photo, by a ‘Like,’ by a comment. That does not define you. – Selena Gomez

All the people who knock me down, only inspire me to do better. – Selena Gomez

I am in competition with no one. I have no desire to play the game of being better than anyone. I am simply trying to be better than the person I was yesterday. – Selena Gomez

It’s not normal for me to feel jealous. I’m competitive with myself more than anything. And anyway, all of my friends in the business are bigger than me! Most of them are musicians, and I think music takes them to a whole new level. For me, I’m going to try out music, but it will be more fun than anything else. I’m really trying my hardest to become a well-respected actress. All I really want to do is movie after movie after movie. I love acting, and I want to create that so I can be around for a long time. – Selena Gomez

There’s a million reasons why I should give you up. But the heart wants what it wants. – Selena Gomez

You have to treat people the way you want to be treated, because ultimately, you’re not gonna get anywhere if you’re just mean to people. – Selena Gomez

You’re growing and changing, and eventually, you can go from having all these friends to feeling like you have no one, because you’ve been betrayed, or you’ve gone through things. But in this moment, I’m in such a good place with my friends. I feel confident and I’m happy there are people who I can truly trust in my life. – Selena Gomez

I have a right to live my life and just be me with whoever I choose. We just do the best we can. – Selena Gomez

This is a modern fairytale. No happy endings. No wind in our sails. But I can’t imagine a life without. Breathless moments. – Selena Gomez

I’ve learned that I want what I deny. I want someone who is crazy about me, who treats me like a princess. I want the picture-perfect fairy tale stuff. – Selena Gomez

A lot of people would be embarrassed to admit that they were on ‘Barney’, but I embrace the fact. I just had such a wonderful time doing that show. I learned what a camera and prop is, and all that. I learned my manners too, so I guess that’s a good thing! – Selena Gomez

I learned everything from that show, so it’s just a wonderful memory to me. A lot of people would be embarrassed to admit that they were on ‘Barney’, but I embrace the fact. I just had such a wonderful time doing that show… I learned what a camera and prop is, and all that. I learned my manners too, so I guess that’s a good thing! – Selena Gomez

Everywhere you go you hear things that are untrue. You’ve just got to learn that if I don’t say it, physically out of my mouth, on camera, it’s not true. – Selena Gomez

You reflect on the people who used to be in your life, and it’s like, ‘Wow, I can’t believe that person was ever really in my life.’ But people are put into your life for seasons, for different reasons, and to teach you lessons. – Selena Gomez

I wanted to be like my friends. I hung out with girls who had blue eyes and blond hair and I thought, ‘I want to look like them!’ – Selena Gomez

I don’t actually like dates. I get awkward as I never know what to do. – Selena Gomez

I have a lot of wonderful people in my life – probably five, collectively – who I can tell everything to. – Selena Gomez

My fans are so important to me, and I would never want to disappoint them. – Selena Gomez

Being cool, having a ‘cool’ energy is just not attractive to me. – Selena Gomez

I maybe had a first love and had my heart broken, but reflecting on it, I don’t think that was love. I think as I’m getting older and having more in-depth relationships, maybe I’ll experience it. At the moment, I don’t know, exactly, if I’ve been in love. – Selena Gomez

You are who you surround yourself with. I know that’s such a cliche quote, but it’s true. – Selena Gomez

I’m going to hang out with people, and I’m going to explore myself, and I’m okay with that. – Selena Gomez

I love Nicki Minaj, Eminem, Katy Perry. They are all about being themselves and I love that. – Selena Gomez

I love Katy Perry! She gave me a song for my second album. – Selena Gomez

I’d love to do my own music for sure. I’d love to have a band. – Selena Gomez

I drive the same car that I’ve driven since I was 16. That’s who I am. – Selena Gomez

I’ve never been part of a movie I would watch over and over again, and I’m really proud of it. – Selena Gomez

I’ve had my ring since I was 12 years old. But for me it’s not something I want to go around saying, ‘Hey, look what I have’, It’s a promise I made to myself and God. I think some people misinterpret that as a trend and think everyone’s getting one. – Selena Gomez

I love that I can stay connected with my fans and be able to tell them what’s going on – their opinions are so important to me. But at the same time, it’s very weird. I think the Internet can be a great thing but also really evil. Something can instantly hurt your feelings. – Selena Gomez

I wore combat boots for two albums, then I went into more of the sparkle and glamour. The older that I’ve become, I’ve felt very connected to fashion, especially this past year working with [stylist] Kate Young and creating these relationships with people that I never had before. – Selena Gomez

A perfect date is probably something somewhere where you can kind of communicate and talk to the person. I don’t like movies as first date.

Music just affects people’s feelings. It brings out emotions in you and makes you happy and sad. – Selena Gomez

Obviously I like to make sure that my life is separate, so as me as a person, I know that my fans know me. But as an actor I like to do different things and I’m gonna want to try new things that may not necessarily have a positive meaning. – Selena Gomez

There’s a lot of, unfortunately, a lot of divorced families. I come from a divorced family. And you have parents meet someone and they have kids and you’re with that whole having to meet new people and be your family. That’s always a hard thing to do. – Selena Gomez

I was very dramatic as a kid. I loved to entertain. I was taking my bathing suits and painting them black and putting sparkles on them because I thought I was going to be on stage. – Selena Gomez

You have different people who come into your life and they affect you in a way and leave an impact on you. Whether it’s projects or friends or directors, it’s just an opportunity that people give me. – Selena Gomez

At the end of the day, besides everything that I do, I’m still just a 20-year-old girl and a Texan, at that. – Selena Gomez

I have to make decisions that people are a little confused about, in a way, and I just express the appreciation, admiration and respect I have. I just try to be the best I can, but I’m human. – Selena Gomez

I can’t watch the news. It’s extremely unsettling. Certain people can be a little desensitized because of movies, and I’m totally a part of that world, so I understand. But when you’re actually seeing what’s happening, you can’t help but be a little affected. – Selena Gomez

The older you get, the more you have to talk about, and music is a really good outlet. I’ve chilled on it a little bit, and I can’t wait to see what I’m going to step into, now that I have this collection of things. – Selena Gomez

I like to run around. I’m enjoying traveling. I absorb as much as I can, and I get to go to beautiful places that I don’t know if I would ever visit. – Selena Gomez

I really want to go to Ireland. It’s really green I hear and very pretty. So I’d really like to go there and spend a nice amount of time because I always travel but for like a second. I never get to enjoy the places. – Selena Gomez

I got my first car when I was 16, but I didn’t have a license. It was a Ford Escape. And I just let it sit there for two years, because I enjoyed having my mom drive me. – Selena Gomez

It’s important just to be yourself. And probably stay out of trouble. – Selena Gomez

I do agree to a certain extent that it is unfortunate that I have to be a little more aware of being a kid and growing up and figuring out who I am, but at the same time, it’s part of what I love. – Selena Gomez

I feel like I should be able to be 18 and have the friends that I choose and to have fun and live my life. – Selena Gomez

I don’t know how to be anything but myself – Selena Gomez
