Shay Mitchell's Pretty Little Liars character has a fairly tumultuous love life, so we thought she might relate to Selena Gomez's super-confessional song about Justin Bieber, "The Heart Wants What It Wants"! Before the actress went onstage at Cosmo's Fun Fearless Life conference to talk to a theater full of young women about making your mark in the world, she EXCLUSIVELY opened up to J-14 about how she really feels about the "Come and Get It" singer's new song.
"I do [think she's brave]. I think artists in general, especially musicians, write about what they feel and what they’ve gone through. Selena's doing her thing, and it’s a beautiful song and there’s lots of people out there that can relate to her," she told us.
"I've definitely been through that myself, and that’s why I think she does so well, because she’s writing for our generation and what girls throughout the years have been going through. It’s a beautiful song, beautiful music video. She's great."
We definitely agree! It's such a relatable, heartfelt message, and she's already opened up so much about her relationship to the song and to Justin. Shay is completely on-point.
Do you think Selena is brave for opening up about her personal life? Do you agree with Shay? Sound off in the comments!
