Selena Gomez Covers Teen Vogue, Talks Taylor Swift, Junk Food
Posted on November 5, 2013
Selena Gomez covers the December/January 2014 issue of Teen Vogue. In the interview, Selena talks about her friend Taylor Swift and how they are different. Selena and Taylor sat next to each other at the MTV VMAs. Selena also talks about being a hopeless romantic and eating junk food.
On Her Friend Taylor Swift: "The difference between Taylor and me is she was sixteen with the confidence of a 25-year-old. Actually, I should say 80-year-old, because she's such an old soul. I was not that way. I was very sheltered until about eighteen or nineteen. I still live at home, and I'm 21! She does inspire me like crazy, but I wouldn't change my path, because it allowed me to figure out all that stuff and do it on my own."
On Being a Hopeless Romantic: "You fall in love and it completely consumes you. So a part of you is broken when that's gone. And part of you wants to have that rebellious feeling where you're just like, forget it - I can do anything I want. I've tried it, and I've never been that girl. I'm always going to be the girl you want to take home to your parents, not for the night."
On Junk Food: "I eat junk. I'm from the South, so I love Mexican food, greasy pasta, and fried things. I do try, every now and then, to put something in my body that will be good, but, honestly, I've never liked working out. I need to be active in some way, though-that's why I kind of secretly do it for my show. We have thirteen choreographed pieces, and it's a 90-minute set. I consider that my workout."
