They're also completely fitting with the singer's recent push into raunchier territory, with her Victoria's Secret appearance and sexy new video for her song, "Hands To Myself," that she looks like this.

Speaking about this transition, Selena Gomez admits that she is trying to find the perfect balance of feeling comfortable and still looking beautiful. She explained, "I'm learning that you can be comfortable and still look beautiful."

She admitted that sometimes she finds herself going for a more bare look that can have conflicting results, remarking, "Some days, I like what I see. Other days I'm like, 'I'm not even going to bother.' "

In fact, Selena Gomez admitted that she hates dating, especially because she is always linked with guys of her own age and she sometimes feels as though she still looks like she's 16. Gomez remarked, "I feel like I look 16 sometimes. Which is a bummer because I would love to date older guys."

However, there is one individual that Selena Gomez admits she'd gladly put her hatred of dating to one side for: the former One Direction singer Zayn Malik. "If [Zayn] had asked me out on a date, I would be seen with him," she confessed, before she then teased, "Just kidding, but not kidding."

In keeping with her outlook and stylistic approaches, Selena Gomez also attempted to turn the corner when she was questioned about her possible romance with her former lover and boyfriend Justin Bieber, declaring when questioned, "I'm just tired of talking about it. I never intended for my life to become a tabloid story."

In fact, Gomez has even posed in the nude for the cover of her latest album, Revival. Because of the way that the world and internet works, she found herself being criticized for doing this by some. And she admitted during her interview with InStyle UK that, while she was hurt by these remarks, she has now learned to immediately put them to one side.

"It hurt my feelings because I never experienced that before," Gomez admitted. "But I didn't want [that] to be the story, so I said, 'I don't care what you think!' "
