Selena Gomez Is Looking For Love Again
We’re all familiar with Selena Gomez’s rollercoaster of a love life. She dated Justin Bieber on and off for almost a decade before calling it quits for good in 2017. Since then, he’s been in a whirlwind romance with his now-wife Hailey Baldwin. Gomez also had a brief relationship with rapper The Weeknd. Now, after two years of being “super, super single” she’s ready to find love again.
The 27-year-old recently released two surprise singles, “Lose You To Love Me” and “Look At Her Now.” Both are believed to be about Bieber as the lyrics seem to reference difficult past relationships and first loves. Gomez recently appeared on The Zach Sang Show where she opened up about her love life and experiences with past relationships.
“You’re in a phase of life where you experience love for the first time and I think that can just be just a little toxic,” Gomez said. “You have this codependency that you think is love and then you have this addiction to the passion and the frustration with each other that you think, ‘Oh, that’s love,’ or fighting or doing all this stuff, ‘Oh that’s love,’ and I believed that for a long time. So I’ve been super, super single for two years and I want to know what the love will look like next for me.”
“I want it to be real and I don’t want it to be codependent or messy or lack of communication,” she said. “I think you know when you get older, you find people that are actually right for you, that are actually on the same wavelength.”
When asked if she would like the “individual” who she wrote her new songs about to hear them, she said yes.
“Being able to say something on your own and being able to turn it into something that actually is beautiful, because for me, my intentions are never evil,” said Gomez. “I mean, I can be a bit snappy, but I’m just, I always want to come from a place that’s genuine and when I feel like some things haven’t been said, then I get to turn that into art.”
She also revealed that she struggled for the first year of being single, but eventually got used to it and was happy she was on her own. She also spoke about her future quest to find love.
“But I never want to lose the sense of love that I imagine it to be. I don’t want to be jaded or bitter from anything. I believe that it exists. I’m happy waiting for that for however long it takes because we’re going to be doing this forever,” said Gomez. Honestly, it’s inspiring that after all that she’s been through with her exes, she still has such a great outlook on love.
