Selena On Public Scrutiny
“At first I didn’t care. To me it was: I’m 18, I have a boyfriend, we look cute together, we like that. Then I got my heart broken and I cared. Because people had no idea what was going on, but everywhere it was a million different things. I was kind of in a corner, banging my head against the wall. I didn’t know where to go.”

“I’m so exhausted. I honestly am so done. I care about his health and well-being. But I can’t do it anymore.”
Selena On Social Media
“I’m utilizing social media right now because of my age and because, to be honest, everybody else in the world was talking about me, so I wanted a f*cking say. I honestly had to, because I didn’t really expect my life to be as public as it was. Is this going to destroy me or make me? I still have to make that choice on a daily basis. In a few years, I’ll give all of it up.”
Selena On Fellow Former Disney Star Miley Cyrus
“Every single girl has done it completely differently,” she says of transitioning out of the Mouse House brand. “Obviously, she wouldn’t want to be doing what I’m doing, and I wouldn’t want to be doing what she’s doing. But I’m a fan of her music — I don’t know if she’d say that about me.”
“We never feuded. We both liked the same guy when we were 16. It was just a Hilary Duff–Lindsay Lohan thing: ‘Oh, my God, we like the same boy!’ We are now completely settled in our own lives.” That boy, of course, was Nick Jonas.
Selena On Life After Disney And Her Evolving Career
“Once Disney was over, I was like: Oh, sh*t. I didn’t know what I wanted to be. I had to learn to be myself.”
“I know that I can go into a room and convince someone that I can be a character. I’ll cut my hair, I’ll shave it, I’ll dye it. I’d go there in order for people to let Selena go.”
