Selena Gomez covers the February issue of Nylon magazine looking a hipster mess. The cover states that Gomez has dropped “the princess act” and dropped she has. Gone is her sweet, sophistacated image and in place is a teenie bopper/hip hop artist persona. In one of the two covers, Selena wears a shredded basketball jersey and a baseball cap (tribute to Justin Beiber perhaps?) and in the other, she wears layered floral shorts with a checkered Louis Vuitton jacket. She also dishes on her new movie with James Franco, her everyday life and her friendship with Taylor Swift.
On auditioning to Spring Breakers:
“It was my first audition in years. I definitely felt that with my first stepping-out role, I should choose something that I could understand a little more. I was really nervous, but Harmony took a chance with me. He said, ‘You live in this bubble, and I’m going to take you out of it, but you have to trust me.’”
On her everyday life:
“I’m having fun. At the end of the day, love is such a normal thing, and everyone deals with it. Just because it’s a different lifestyle doesn’t change the meaning of what I’ve been raised on, which is fairy tales.”
On her relationship with Taylor Swift:
“We both experienced the same things at the same time. But we’ve never once talked about our industry. She just became the person I’d go to for an issue with my family or boyfriend. It’s so hard to trust girls, so I’m lucky to have her.”
