Selena’s fans, aka ‘Selenators,’ got some much-needed information about her personal life when Vogue interviewed the multi-hyphenate star.
The Rare Beauty founder got candid about her past and how she felt “less than” in most of her relationships.
Selena has been in many high-profile relationships, with her most famous ‘ship being with Justin Bieber.
The former lovebirds dated on-and-off from 2011 to 2018. Not long after their split, Bieber moved on with supermodel Hailey Baldwin and the two got married in 2019.

Selena has been single for about two years and the ‘Revelacion’ singer is completely fine with it. She’s been very open about her ‘singlehood.’
Last year she told the Wall Street Journal that quote, “I love going to my room at the end of the day. Just me and my dog. I got the full granny panties situation, stretched out in my bed. I’ve been single for over two years now … I’m OK with that.”
Sel has had a lot of time to reflect on her past relationships over the past few years which she opened up about in her Vogue interview.
Selena Is A Rarity!
She said quote, “I think most of my experiences in relationships have been cursed. I’ve been way too young to be exposed to certain things when I was in relationships.”
Selena titled her last album “Rare” and the singer revealed why the word became so important to her.
“I guess I needed to find what was that word for me, because I felt so less than in past relationships, and never really felt equal,” she said. “So that word to me – when I first heard it used in the single Rare with one of the writers, I just said this is what I want to feel about myself. So it wasn’t even necessarily like: ‘Oh, I feel that way, let me sing it.’ It was almost like: ‘Actually, I need to feel that way about myself.’”
While she didn’t feel “rare” in her past relationships, Sel revealed that her immediate family and chosen family have made her feel that way. She is surrounded by “real people.”
She’s More Than You Could Ever Imagine
In the same interview, Gomez reflected on how the media made a mockery of her mental health situation saying, “I’ve been to four treatment centers. I think in mental health, I never understood the stigma until I went to my first treatment center, because that was years ago,” she said. “But then there was a photograph that got out, and it’s wild to see how mean they were.”
“It was like: ‘She’s the next this person, she’s the childhood star,’ whatever. And: ‘She’s doing drugs.’ They’re saying all this stuff about me,” Gomez, who shared her bipolar disorder diagnosis last year, continued. “I’m watching all of that change, slowly but surely, because now, if any media outlet made fun of me, they’re the ones that look like the asshole because we don’t tolerate that anymore.”
Selena revealed her bipolar disorder diagnosis last year.
