Selena Gomez Discusses Her Purity Ring Days

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.

  • Purity ring, no purity ring, whatever. She’s a hot latina woman/child and she at an itch needed scratching. Ol’ Monkey Virus was delighted to oblige.
    Again and again and again.

    • It’s like you didnt even read what she said amd your boy brain only took in what it wanted to. She fell in love.. there was no itch that NEEDED scratching. She wasnt some horny child, as you’d like to believe. She was a young woman who wanted to experience love with the man she fell for. Grow up

  • God people are naive. It was always a marketing ploy. The Jonas brothers said they never took it seriously and Disney made them do it for their image. They’re creepy as fuck too like how the hell can you make a promise (moral consent) to your dad (women as property 5eva) about abstinence when you probably haven’t even thought about it yet. The whole purity vs whore binary is so gross and predatory.
