Selena Gomez stops by the Elvis Duran show in NYC for a sit-down interview.
While many of Gomez's peers aim to take over music, the 23-year-old admits she just wants to settle down.
Gomez's new album Revival is on track to score a No. 1 album this week, but all that doesn't matter if people don't take her seriously as an artist. She admits releasing her second solo album was a bit nerve-wracking, but says "I love what I do," adding she's "put so much energy into this no matter what the noise is
"I can’t imagine doing anything else, but ultimately my goal is to be happy and have a family. That’s my life."
The "Rise" singer also thinks people haven't realized she's an adult now.
"I think people still think I’m 16," she told Duran. "Which is fair, because sometimes I still look 16. But I think ultimately it’s [about] confidence, so I’ll start with that. Going into this album...I did executive produce it, so I had to come in with full control and you can hear it!"
She adds, "it’s like if I actually sit down with the grown-ups who are writing horrible things about me and say, ‘What were you doing at 16? What were you doing at 18? What were you doing at 21?’"
