Selena Gomez believes her new music is much more “mature” than her previous releases. I suppose technically that’s the case. After all, she wasn’t always openly propositioning men for sex in her songs, really. Still, this new sound would never have been possible were it not for the help of Taylor Swift, Selena’s BFF and apparently her musical hero, as well. Listening to Taylor’s new album, Red, as well as Britney Spears‘ latest, managed to push her own music to the next level.
“The past year and a half has been really transitional for me, just personally, as well as transitioning into becoming a woman. I still feel like I’m 15 sometimes and then other times, I’m wanting to feel comfortable in my body and my skin.
“I was able to have full creative control over it. Before, I would have maybe a month or two to record an album, and I’d have to do my series at the same time and tour on the weekends. I wasn’t in the right mindset to fully give my all.”
Well… okay. I still don’t think I’d consider her music to be “mature”, and while I love a few of her singles – I actually like ‘Come and Get It’ and ‘Love You Like a Love Song’ was classic – I still always feel like I’m listening to a Disney star, or a former Disney star, or a little girl trying to be a big one. Maybe that’s just me – she seems to be doing well enough!

Or she might just cut your interview off then and there. That’s exactly what happened during her chat with Dean Richards on Chicago’s WGN Entertainment network on Monday. Dean asked Selena Gomez, being a “close friend” of Justin Bieber‘s and all, if there was anything about him that the public might be misunderstanding since, you know, he’s turned into a complete and utter twat.
Selena looked all uncomfortable and kept glancing off camera, and when Richards continued with his questioning, she sat there and didn’t answer and then the satellite link she was on abruptly disconnected. LOL, damn – that’s cold. And also pretty immature. I’m not sure why Selena didn’t just turn around and say to the dude, “Uh, isn’t this interview about MY new album? Can we not talk about Justin Bieber? Maybe interview him instead!” but, you know, in a nicer way. It looks far worse to just hang up instead of sticking up for yourself and saying “I don’t want to talk about this”, I think.
Here’s an unfortunate video clip of the incident:

I guess it’s easier for celebs to announce their reconciliations over Instagram than it is to release a statement through their publicists. But maybe this is just for publicity’s sake, as Bieber’s upcoming album is titled “Heartbreaker”. And its cover completely ripped off Kanye‘s artwork for “808s & Heartbreak”. I mean look at this shit:
It even has the same font.
Anyway some reactions to the couple’s union have been, “Oh” and “Ugh” and “I don’t give a shit” and “I hate this fucking kid” and “Okay?” At least that’s what I’m assuming.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are easily one of the most hated celebrity couples ever, right? Radaronline polled a whole mess of people and compiled a list of 14 celebrity couples that people absolutely hate and Kim and Kanye didn’t even make the list! Shocker! These lists are based on pretty much nothing, but they’re so fun; from the most hated celebrities to the ugliest male celebs, I know I like a good stupid list.
I don’t think these are actually in a particular order, in terms of most to least. The first ones on the list are Rihanna and Chris Brown. Who are the rest?Click to find out.

Selena Gomez is about to turn 21, and in addition to having a nice little party with her family and friends, she also plans on embarking on a true journey of ~self-discovery~ and enlightenment as she becomes an adult. As long as she doesn’t start twerking with Miley and stays the hell away from Baby Elvis, I think we might be in business.
“I am going to have a party,” she tells ET Canada. “My family from Texas, my friends, my cousins are flying in. I will have some of my best friends in LA come celebrate.” And we’re guessing her bestie Taylor Swift will be on the guest list!
But while turning 21 is a big milestone, the “Come and Get It” singer says she doesn’t feel like she’s all grown up. “I feel like sometimes I am 15 in my heart,” she admits. “Sometimes I just go in waves of being a child and being an adult. It’s awkward, I am growing up. I am just trying to figure out who I am.”
Ain’t that the way? I don’t mind Selena Gomez, and I also really like ‘Come and Get It’, and not in an ironic way, hipsters. It’s a pretty great pop song.

Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez are both former Disney stars who spent many of their childhood years as really close friends. Like most teenagers, they grew apart for a few years and while they recently got back in contact, Demi admits she’s still feeling a bit lonely without her pal.
From BBC Radio 1 (via DS):
“We grew up together, we knew each other since we were 7 years old,” Lovato explained.
“For a while we grew apart and went our separate ways like most people do when they have childhood friends, but recently I have come into contact with her again and I really miss her and wish I could see her.”
Oh, dear. Poor Demi! I feel kinda bad for her, because sometimes she seems pretty lonely and it’s a shame. She’s still recovering from all the things she went to rehab for and seems to be kind of a loner. She’s not even going to tour this new album. Instead, she hangs out with Simon Cowell and talks about missing her childhood friend during a radio interview. I dunno – maybe I’m thinking about this too much. That’s probably it.
