So if I have on a good outfit and my hair looks poppin', I feel great! "I hope we are the generation that gets to bring that up a little bit more, but I do believe it's always been there".

"I was actually more confident when I was younger than I am now. My confidence went through a lot with that".

"Once I started understanding the craftsmanship and how dedicated people are to making it, and how delicate everything felt, my eyes were really opened to it (the fashion world)", she says. 'I was maybe 15 or 16 and people were taking pictures - photographers.

"I don't think anyone really knew who I was".

The songstress continued, "But I felt very violated and I didn't like it or understand it, and that felt very weird because I was a young girl and they were grown, men". So I wear it so proudly, and I feel cute when I have it on. "I didn't feel like it was about my art as much", Gomez shared. Along with trying to discover who she is and maintain a relationship, the star admitted that she felt overwhelmed by the invasion of her privacy, which goes along with being a child star. "I wanted something different and obviously I fell in love for the first time".

"My boyfriend just got me a lovely Chanel bag, and (I love it)", Selena tells Business of Fashion magazine, explaining how life experiences mean more to her than material goods.

Her love life became the subject of vast fan and media attention once she began dating pop star Justin Bieber in 2011, and she earned a massive following for her music career as well.

"Well I stopped as well". If that's me just being myself, then I don't really care'.

The Same Old Love singer and her beau, real name Abel Tesfaye, are apparently renting "a low-rise luxury building" in the centre of Greenwich Village in Manhattan while Selena films her role in an untitled Woody Allen project and he is away on tour. Is this worth it anymore?

"My boyfriend just got me a lovely Chanel bag, and [I love it]". I feel like, 'I love this!' it makes me so happy.

She made an emotional speech at the 2016 American Music Awards after her stay in rehab, during which she famously said:' If you're broken, you do not have to stay broken'. I'll have two days off and it burns. "I have a whole new aura about myself". So, I want to do the best that I can possibly do.

On how she copes with being in the spotlight: "Balance the power of saying no and self-care".
