I was 18 years old, and it was my first love. The older I get, I’m guarding certain things more. After being put through the scrutiny, I understand what it is. When you’re young and you’re being told so many different things…it almost felt like all we had was each other, like the world was against us, in a way.Gomez even says the scrutiny she faced over the public romance led her to one very lonely place. "There were a few months where I was a little depressed, where I wouldn’t leave the house as much," she admitted. "I think I drove myself crazy for a little bit. It was just easier to say, 'Hey, do you mind running to the grocery store and picking some stuff up, I don’t want to get photographed.'" What do you think of Selena's topless V Mag cover?
