The former Disney star, 23, dated Justin, 21, on and off for three years – and she insists their heartbreaking split won’t stop her falling for someone again in the future.
Speaking to the Sunday Times Style Magazine, Selena opened up about their highly publicised romance – and all the pressures she felt being constantly in the media spotlight, even admitting she felt “destroyed” by the attention.
“It’s difficult for people to separate us. The internet wants to freeze this moment in time and constantly repeat it,” Selena told the newspaper, before opening up about the media attention their relationship attracted.
“I didn’t think I was doing anything bad by falling in love,” Selena added. “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.”
Selena went on to insist she’s enjoying single life and dating now, admitting her new relationship will be “dear” to her.
She added: “I’ve been working my butt off. I’m dating, but I don’t really want anything right now.”
The brunette beauty also spoke out about her first love Nick Jonas, 22, who she previously dated in 2008.
The star was well known for wearing a chastity ring at the time – but when quizzed about taking it off, Selena was more than open about her decision.
Revealing she’s not a bit embarrassed about showing off the ring, the star said it represented her beliefs at the time – and she’s similarly not embarrassed to admit she’s since taken it off.
