Disney star Selena Gomez wishes she could “lash out” without worrying about how her fans would react. The 17-year-old star admits she would love to be able to get angry and reveal her true feelings about situations that annoy her, but is afraid of saying something that will cause her young admirers to be disappointed with her, Contactmusic reported.
“I always ask myself, ‘Ok, what would my fans think of me if I made this decision to lash out or say something rude?’ I would never, ever want them to be disappointed with me, because they are the reason I’m here,” Gomez said.
“So I’m honestly just thankful that they’ve made me think about my decisions more. Because I’m a kid, I’m a teenager, so if something makes me mad, I wanna be like, ‘I don’t like that’,” she added.
The singer-actress says she is still not used to people being interested in her love life. “My ideal would be not to be known for who I’m dating, because eventually that’s all you will be known for. It’s hard, because people are curious about who’s in my life, but I want to be known for my work. And I never want to view myself as any different or any better than anyone else. If I wanna go eat at a little restaurant that isn’t fancy, I’ll do it. If I wanna go out without make-up and not care what I look like, I will,” Gomez said.
