AceShowbiz - %cSelena Gomez% broke her silence on his recent split from %cThe Weeknd% as well as her shocking reunion with ex-boyfriend %cJustin Bieber%. In a new interview with Billboard, the 25-year-old "Wolves" singer used the chance to set the record straight on all the rumors surrounding her relationships.
When asked if things turned ugly in her romance with The Weeknd, Selena confidently denied it. "Something that I'm really proud of is that there's such a true friendship [between me and The Weeknd]," she said. "I truly have never experienced anything like that in my life."
The former Disney darling, who was named Billboard's "Women of the Year", shared that she and the "Starboy" hitmaker "ended it as best friends." She added, "It was genuinely about encouraging and caring for each other], and that was pretty remarkable for me."
As for her decision to accept Justin, whom she dated on and off since 2010, back to her life, Selena said, "I'm 25. I'm not 18, or 19, or 20. I cherish people who have really impacted my life."
The "Fetish" songstress went on saying, "So maybe before, it could have been forcing something that wasn't right. But that doesn't mean caring for someone ever goes away. And [that goes for] people in general."
"I mean, I grew up with Demi [%cDemi Lovato%]. Nick [%cNick Jonas%] and Joe [%cJoe Jonas%] and Miley [%cMiley Cyrus%] -- we've gone through seasons in our lives. I don't think it's as serious as people make things out to be half the time. It's just my life. I grew up with all of these people, and it's so cool to see where everybody is. It comes back to the idea of me remaining full. I think a true representation of love is beyond just yourself," she shared.
Selena also talked about undergoing a kidney transplant earlier this summer due to complications from lupus. "It was really hard in the beginning," she spoke of embracing her scar due to the surgery. "I remember looking at myself in the mirror completely naked and thinking about all the things that I used to bitch about and just asking, 'Why?' I had someone in my life for a very long time who pointed out all the things that I didn't feel great about with myself. When I look at my body now, I just see life."
The star also gushed over fellow singer %cCardi B%. "Cardi B has been my inspiration lately. She's killing it, and she is proud of everything she has done. So there is absolutely zero judgment on my end," Selena said.
