Selena Gomez poses topless on V Magazine says the world was ‘against’ her and Justin Bieber

Ever since Selena Gomez released heartbreaking single ‘The Heart Wants What It Wants’ we thought she’d probably be getting back with bad-boy wannabe Justin Bieber, it was after all about their strange attraction towards each other which means four years on they still haven’t managed to move on.

But it looks like the 21 year-old may have finally given him the push and while she’s been linked to producer Zedd from her latest interview she seems to be enjoying the single life. Justin and Selena have been keeping us guessing for years, first splitting in December 2012 but getting back together regularly, the latest in September 2014. But speaking to V Magazine Gomez, who is getting ready to release new music, including single I Want You To Know, produced by rumoured boyfriend Zedd, she claimed it was well over.

Speaking about her love life she said of her next boyfriend: “I think the next time will be much different…which will definitely not be any time soon. That’s a growing up kind of thing. I was 18 years old, and it was my first love. The older I get, I’m guarding certain things more. After being put through the scrutiny, I understand what it is.”

So we’re guessing the rumours about Zedd aren’t true then?

But what kept her and Justin together so long? Gomez admitted in the interview with Spring Breakers co-star James Franco, it had been partly an insecurity of hers to cling to Justin when she wasn’t sure who to trust. “When you’re young and you’re being told so many different things.” the 21 year-old admitted, “It almost felt like all we had was each other, like the world was against us, in a way. It was really weird but it was incredible. I would never take it back in a million years. You live and you learn, you know?”

Despite growing up on TV, she was a child star from the age of seven, Selena admitted she struggled with the pressures of fame and that in recent years, as an adult she’s struggled with depression: “It just causes a lot of anxiety. There were a few months where I was a little depressed, where I wouldn’t leave as much. I love my home, it’s a really nice house and it’s the first home I’ve owned, so I have a music room and I have a nice kitchen and I kind of just stayed put for a while, but it drove me crazy. I think I drove myself crazy for a little bit.

“It was just easier to say, Hey, do you mind running to the grocery store and picking some stuff up, I don’t want to get photographed. My friends will come over and I’ll have movie nights and then I’ll have not left the house, just because that was in the back of my mind. As much as I don’t like to wake up and think about that it’s there, it’s naturally just there. My response was to stay in, which sucked. That’s what I was trying to fix this past year, I’m finally getting a little bit more comfortable. It’s a process.”

In January 2014 things got so bad for the star that she entered rehab. While her rep at the time was quick to shoot down substance abuse rumours it was clear things weren’t going so well. But reflecting on that, Selena admitted 2015 was shaping up to be a much better year, she said: “I think this year is going to be incredible, I feel the best I’ve ever felt in my life, but I mean, your 20s, good God, you know? I’m super stoked that I’ve got some bumps on me, some scars, some bruises. I actually really love that.

“And I don’t mean that in a morbid way. It was great to experience really beautiful things, and then, you know, have the growing pains, in every possible manner, in every relationship. It was family, it was business, it was buying my first home, moving out of my parents’ house. There was so much going on. You can’t help but have some troubles here and there. I don’t think it’s a smooth process for anyone, and it definitely wasn’t for me.”
