Selena Gomez has grown up in the spotlight, but when she was a young girl, she vowed not to become like those other Hollywood harlots, out there drinking and drugging and having wild sex orgies. To show this promise to herself to the world, she wore a purity ring… a ring which came off when she met Justin Bieber and decided she wanted him to take her to Bonetown, USA and she couldn’t wait any longer.
In an interview with the Sunday Times, Selena said she knows people are still obsessed with her relationship with Bieber, but she’s moved on. That being said, she doesn’t regret handing over her v-card to the “Baby” singer – that’s just the way life goes.
“It’s difficult for people to separate us. The Internet wants to freeze this moment in time and constantly repeat it.”
“I didn’t think I was doing anything bad by falling in love. There’s such an emphasis on people being the perfect thing and then destroying them because it’s good press. Also throw in the fact that you are a teenager — it makes it more difficult.”
“I’m not embarrassed to say that [I used to wear a purity ring]. I’m also not embarrassed to say that the ring has come off. I got it when I was 13 and I respect so much what it represented, but it isn’t for everyone.”
Well, fair enough. At the end of the day, teenagers do stupid shit 24/7, so Selena is hardly the worst of the bunch because she happened to fall in love with a Grade A asshole. Bieber wasn’t always such a self-serving, disrespectful, narcissistic dickhead, either, and it’s not really her fault that he turned out that way. Thank God she finally moved on, though. If that merry-go-round took one more trip, I was going to pull my hair out.
