Selena Gomez is sounding off on the celebrities in her life, and some of them are sounding off on her for a new Refinery29 feature. Check out the highlights below!

Selena On Justin Bieber
“I think there are people who have been in my life who are seasonal. Even people who I have dated have been just that. It’s part of growing up… I think people really wanted to see me fail. I’d sit down in an interview and get the most harshly asked questions. Of course I got my heart broken. Of course I was pissed about it. There, everybody has it. I was so disappointed, because I never wanted my career to be a tabloid story.”

“At this point, there is no anger. There’s closure in a very good, healthy way. We’ve seen each other. I’m always encouraging and I am proud of his journey. I think people are making it out to be something that is more tragic than it really was. We grew up together. We both made mistakes. That’s it.”

Selena On Miley Cyrus And Demi Lovato
“Everyone has found their identity in a really interesting way. We didn’t come out as these robots that looked and dressed the same. We had to go through our own sh*t. At the end of the day, it’s respecting every female artist’s choice in how she expresses herself, because that’s what she wants.”

Selena On Her Four Best Friends, Including Taylor Swift
“I have a lot of friends in the business, but at the end of the day, [these four women] are who I call crying. They see my best and my worst.”

Selena On Her Friendships With Jennifer Aniston And Kerry Washington
“I treasure these women. I’d rather be around women than men. I think they are interesting, complicated, and beautiful.”

Kerry Washington On Selena
“I love her so much! I’m so proud of her. I think she’s just such an elegant young woman — she’s so filled with grace and poise and intelligence and generosity. She’s just a real girl, you know?”

James Franco On Selena
“If she were allowed to play [more] roles beyond just teenagers with teen interests, she would show her innate maturity and strength. She has had to face pressures and scrutiny at a young age that most never face in a lifetime. So when she is able to display the strength and leadership she has developed, she shines.”

Gwen Stefani On Selena
“Selena is incredibly passionate about her craft, and her talent far exceeds what one would expect from a woman her age.” Stefani adds that she picked Gomez to be her team’s advisor on “The Voice” because of her “confidence and creativity.”
