Gomez just kicked off her Revival world tour, so to promote the 74-show date tour, she's chatting with Marie Claire magazine about that, her dating life and calling the shots when it comes to her career.
Here are a couple of highlights:
On dating: "I've been dating. I've been having the best time. But I don't trust anybody, so dating can only be fun if I know I'm going to have fun."
On how she deals with agents and managers: "Authenticity is my life. They make great choices, but I make the decisions."
On being known for who she dates with not who she is: "I would try to promote something that I loved, and the entire interview would be about my personal life. I would leave a room feeling defeated, feeling embarrassed, but I would always make sure to put that smile on my face because I wasn't going to let them get to me."
On taking control of her career: "I had to not be afraid to ask dumb questions, which means I asked a million things about ever single step that I was making."
On her upcoming tour and film: "I finally just wanted to go for it. I wanted to do things that I knew were going to be me. I don't want people to look at me as someone who is just this celebrity person."
