Selena Gomez is Over Boys Like Bieber

08 Aug 2016

The sassy singer is on the lookout for a low-key lover

The Heart Wants What It Wants and it looks like Selena Gomez now knows what she doesn’t want, after turbulent on-off relationships with men in the limelight.

Instead, she told Vogue Australia, “The guys that do have the confidence to hit on me are not necessarily my type, but they think they are because I'm a pop star... I'd be so stoked with a writer or producer or actor who is low-key, but those kind of guys are terrified of me!”

Having been linked to a selection of celeb names, including Orlando Bloom, the 24-year-old explained, “For a while my private life was the most talked about thing," and added, "Nobody really knows everything and they can only assume. You want to do what you love but all this other stuff overshadows it so it makes it a little harder for people to take me seriously.”

Though she does understand why men would think twice before making a move, "I think people would think it's kind of dumb (to date me). Nobody would want to throw themselves into that situation where it was so heightened publicly."

Well, until she’s found the right guy, we assume she’ll keep her hands to herself.
