Selena Gomez is admitting she “loved” it when she was falsely linked romantically to Cara Delevingne.
As Gossip Cop reported last year, OK! wrongly claimed Gomez and Delevingne were having a “fling” and “in a relationship” after they were photographed vacationing together in the French Riviera. Gossip Cop, however, was the first to confirm the two stars were nothing more than friends. And while we were right, Gomez is now revealing she actually enjoyed the speculation.
“Honestly, I loved it. I didn’t mind it. Especially because they weren’t talking about other people in my life for once, which was wonderful,” the singer-actress confesses to PrideSource. “Honestly, though, she’s incredible and very open and she just makes me open. She’s so fun and she’s just extremely adventurous, and sometimes I just want that in my life, so I didn’t mind it. I loved it.”
Gomez further shares that there’s been times when she “questioned” her sexual orientation. “Oh, I think everybody does, no matter who they are. I do, yeah, of course. Absolutely,” she tells out the outlet. “I think it’s healthy to gain a perspective on who you are deep down, question yourself and challenge yourself; it’s important to do that.”
And while Gomez is straight, she’s open to an on-screen same-sex romance (preferably with Suki Waterhouse), and gives prop to ex-boyfriend Nick Jonas for playing gay characters on “Kingdom” and “Scream Queens.” “He’s incredible, and I think it’s amazing,” gushes Gomez. “I’ve known him for years — we were 14 when we met — so it’s crazy, because I actually knew him at a different time in his life. Now, to see him have this amazing perspective on life is awesome. I’m really proud of him.”
Gomez continues, “It was kind of incredible for somebody to step out of their zone for a minute. It’s really incredible to see what he’s done. It’s incredible to not really be in a judgmental place and to really let down all of your guards. I just think you have to really let go, and you do have to find this in your heart. He clearly has had a love and compassion for everyone, and I think that’s great.”
Elsewhere in the interview Gomez reveals she and BFF Taylor Swift have dance parties with their “100 percent gay” dancers, and laughs off yet another tabloid rumor about here love life. “I think I’ve been pregnant 15 times. That’s always been the craziest thing for me, which is my favorite,” she says. “I’ll be at the beach and have the flattest stomach or not and regardless, I’ll be pregnant. It’s the most hysterical thing to me.”
