Selena Gomez is linked to Justin Bieber so much that it may be hard to believe that she’s also been the target of bisexual rumors.
Selena Gomez, 23, and Cara Delevingne, 23, were rumored to have been involved in a brief romance. The two were spotted together last year when they were vacationing on a yacht in Cabo. Gomez and Delevingne looked flirtatious underneath an outdoor shower, making some think that they were dating – or at least having a fling. Romance rumors swirled once again when Gomez was seen bringing Delevingne back home with her for the holidays.

The “Good For You” singer told Pride Source that she absolutely “loved” the rumors about her sexuality because she wasn’t linked to the Biebs for once!
“Honestly, I loved it. I didn’t mind it. Especially because they weren’t talking about other people in my life for once, which was wonderful.”
The interviewer went on to ask Selena if she’s ever questioned her own sexuality. Earlier this year, Cara opened up to Elle magazine about the time she realized she was bisexual. Maybe the interviewer thought that Selena felt the same way. But she was open and honest with her answer, and believes that questioning one’s sexuality is something that everyone will experience, at least once in their life.
“Oh, I think everybody does, no matter who they are. I do, yeah, of course. Absolutely. I think it’s healthy to gain a perspective on who you are deep down, question yourself and challenge yourself; it’s important to do that.”
When it comes to choosing her onscreen same sex love interest, the former Disney star would choose actress and model Suki Waterhouse, although she does have a long list of beautiful women she would absolutely choose from. Selena Gomez is all about women these days – but in a friendly way. During her interview with Refinery 29, she says that she goes to Taylor Swift, her cousin, and her two roommates whenever she’s having a bad day.
“I have a lot of friends in the business, but at the end of the day, [these four women] are who I call crying. I treasure these women. I’d rather be around women than men. I think they are interesting, complicated and beautiful.”
Gomez even has a track on Revival called “Me & My Girls,” which she recently revealed that it features her actual girl friends singing in the background. No word on whether or not Swift also sings in the background as well, but it’s fun for Gomez’s fans to think about.
The “Same Old Love” singer also revealed to Refinery 29 that she went over Jennifer Aniston’s house for pizza night. Selena has also cited the actress as one of her inspirations. Kerry Washington also gave the singer her phone number in case she needed someone to talk to. It’s good to know that Selena has a strong support system around her.
Not many former child stars have it that easy. The Wizards of Waverly Place alum has been through a lot in the past year. Earlier this month, Selena revealed to Billboard magazine that she underwent chemotherapy for Lupus, and then she revealed to Us Weekly that she goes to therapy to deal with the negative comments over her bikini body from earlier this year.
It’s also the reason why Gomez stripped down for her Revival album cover. But when it came to her sexy video “Good For You,” she said that she didn’t want to have a man in the video at first. Gomez wanted to feature things that make “women feel sexy and beautiful.” But then she added a second version featuring rapper A$AP Rocky, who also appears on the album.

Her Revival wasn’t just about revealing her true self to the world, it was also about exploring her own sexuality. Selena thinks it’s great that her former Disney costars like Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato have been exploring their sexuality. It’s obvious that she respects their individuality and creative differences. But for Selena, sexuality means more than singing about your bedroom activities.
“It’s not something where I’m like, let me glorify what I do in the bedroom. But I think I have a very healthy perspective on my sexuality. It’s part of being an adult, and I’m still figuring out how to be one of those, too.”
She’s still young, so she has plenty of time. She has proven to the world that she’s all grownup with her very mature look and sound.
