Selena Gomez Discusses Taking Off Her Purity Ring


Selena Gomez previously wore a purity ring and then removed it back in 2010 when she began to date . Speaking on the ring, Selena says she was never embarrassed by it – she liked what it represented when she wore it and also was not ashamed to take it off:

“I’m not embarrassed to say that. I’m also not embarrassed to say that the ring has come off. I got it when I was 13 and I respect so much what it represented, but it isn’t for everyone.”

The singer and actress also reveals that she has had a hard time with criticism in the past and although she tries to let it go, it can get to her:

“Sometimes you have to lie to yourself to get through the criticism, and then you’re in your closet crying. It has been like that for me a couple of times, but I only want to learn from those things.”

Commenting on her very personal relationship with Justin Bieber, Selena says she believes people are slow to let the relationship go:

“It’s difficult for people to separate us. The internet wants to freeze this moment in time and constantly repeat it… I didn’t think I was doing anything bad by falling in love. There’s such an emphasis on people being the perfect thing and then destroying them because it’s good press. Also, throw in the fact that you are a teenager… it makes it more difficult.”
