When police showed up at Selena Gomez's house earlier in the week to break up a party, some people in her life worried that the star might be spending too much time with a bad influence — her ex, Justin Bieber. But it turns out that Selena was probably just trying to have some fun for a change.
"I mean, I've been working since I was seven years old," she explains in a new interview. "I love being able to work, but you have to understand what it means to take a break and that's what my problem is. I'm like, 'I need to chill. I need to go have some fun.'"
Don't worry, it's not like Sel regrets the path she has chosen. In fact, she's so obsessed with her career — from her music and charity work to her clothing line and social media presence — that she can't imagine having it any other way.
"I chose my lifestyle," Selena says. "It's easy to be pressured in this line of work because you're in front of the cameras and it's all kind of depending on you... but at the end of the day, I don't have to do anything that I don't want to do. That's something my mom did teach me."
"I've always loved my life," she adds. "I think there are certain parts of my life I wish I could have to myself, and things I could do and grow and experience, but it would almost be hypocritical of me if I just complained about it. I think it's silly sometimes what happens, but I love what I do. I guess I gotta deal with it."
