When it comes to love, Selena Gomez doesn’t mess around. In a recent interview with Teen Vogue, the 21-year-old pop princess and December cover girl discussed what romance means to her.

“You fall in love and it completely consumes you,” Selena tells the magazine. “So a part of you is broken when that’s gone. And part of you wants to have that rebellious feeling where you’re just like, forget it — I can do anything I want.”

That rebelliousness doesn’t last long for Selena, however. “I’ve tried it, and I’ve never been that girl,” she continues. “I’m always going to be the girl you want to take home to your parents, not for the night.”

Selena, of course, famously dated fellow pop star Justin Bieber; the two broke up last year but sound to still be working through the emotional wreckage of their split. Justin’s been releasing song after song that seems to be all about Selena, while his former flame hasn’t been shy about discussing the lull in her love life.

“I’ve been asked out on one date [since my last relationship]. That’s it,” she recently told entertainment reporter Zach Sang, adding “I’m not in a place where I want to date right now.”

Or do much else related to boys, it sounds like. We can’t really blame her. It’s gotta be hard to bounce back from Bieber.
