Selena Gomez gets candid about her exes, relationships and what it’s like to date during quarantine in a new interview!
Selena Gomez was unfiltered about her personal life in a new interview with makeup artist Nikkie de Jager. While discussing her new Rare Beauty makeup line, Selena told Nikkie (who goes by NikkieTutorial on YouTube) that all of her exes think she’s crazy. Selena’s ex-boyfriends include, Justin Bieber, The Weeknd and Nick Jonas, as well as her rumored romances with Orlando Bloom and Niall Horan.
The conversation about dating began around the 19-minute mark in the video, when Selena gushes over her makeup artist Hung Vanngo. “He will be doing my makeup for my wedding, which is never gonna happen,” she quipped, before noting that dating has been much harder amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It’s hard in quarantine,” Selena said about dating during the global health crisis. She followed up with a disclaimer that her comment is “not an invitation” for interested suitors to ask her out. “It’s just funny that I release things that like say I want a boyfriend and stuff and people say it, and I’m like, ‘I didn’t really mean it, though. Guys are a lot of work,” she explained, adding, “Every one of my exes thinks I’m crazy, so, I don’t care.”
Selena’s comments about her private life came as a shock to fans, who know that that the singer rarely addresses her past relationships. Her on-again, off-again romance with Justin — her longest romance to date — went on from 2010 throughout 2018. The tumultuous relationship (famously dubbed “Jelena”) inspired many chart-topping songs by both artists including, Selena’s 2014 hit “The Heart Wants What It Wants, and most recently, “Lose You To Love Me,” which released in 2019.
Despite refraining from dating while in quarantine, Selena has been busy in the kitchen. She’s been documenting her cooking ventures with top chefs in her new HBO Max show, Selena + Chef.
