Selena Gomez: 'I'm the girl you want to take home to your parents, not for the night'
Selena Gomez's ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber, continues to show off his rebellious streak in the form of reckless driving citations, a not-so-hidden appreciation for the wacky tabacky and most recently, having to deny rumors he's visited a brothel. Meanwhile, the 21-year-old Gomez continues to play the good girl off-screen, and she's proud of it. Appearing on the December cover of Teen Vogue, the "Spring Breakers" star shares some insight as to how the end of a serious relationship has affected her -- and why her moral compass doesn't seem to have room for much in the way of boundary-testing.
"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," she says.
That doesn't mean she has no interest in a little escapism sometimes, though. "My attention span is all over the place, and I overthink things. I'm an insomniac," she explains. "Dancing allows me to go away and not have to think of what I'm doing next. That is the opportunity for me to really escape."
