Covering the front of InStyle UK‘s January 2016 issue, the “Same Old Love” singer opens up about her love life and — surprise, surprise — the subject of her ex-boyfriend is brought up. Speaking about being constantly reminded about her tumultuous relationship with Bieber, Gomez, 22, says she’s ready to move on.
“It’s really hard because I’m a nice person. I’m just tired of talking about it,” she tells the publication. “I never intended for my life to become a tabloid story.”
In fact, former Disney Channel star reveals she’s started dating other people again. Though those romance rumors with Zayn Malik never came to fruition (as the ex-One Direction member is now datingGigi Hadid), Gomez admits she’s open for anything.
“If he had asked me out on a date, I would be seen with him. Just kidding, but not kidding,” she jokes.
“I hate it,” Gomez confess about dating in general. “It’s hard and I’m weirded out by the idea that a guy has Googled me before we meet, and that has happened.”
She adds, “I feel like I look 16 sometimes, which is a bummer because I would love to date older guys.”
So, what happens when she does run into boy troubles? According to Gomez, she turns to BFF Taylor Swift for help.
“I’ll be like, ‘I think I totally screwed up,’ but Taylor says, ‘Actually, you didn’t’ and shows me how to make my mistakes into something great,” she says of their heart-to-heart talks, adding that they “just play good music — sometimes live — and eat, and hang out.”
However, it seems Gomez isn’t having that much problem with attracting potential suitors. Aside from Bieber, who was recently seen serenading Gomez at a hotel bar, the songstress is rumored to be being wooed by NYU graduate Samuel Krost after they were seen holding hands during a dinner in New York City.
