The still baby-faced former Disney star, now 22, recently stripped down in her raciest photo-shoot yet. Going topless and rocking a pair of denim Daisy Dukes on the cover of V magazine, this is definitely Selena like you've never seen her before.
The "Come & Get It" singer opens up about feeling depressed in the accompanying interview, getting candid with James Franco, her former spring breakers co-star.
"There were a few months where I was a little depressed, where I wouldn't leave [my home] as much," Gomez reveals. "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.'"
Presumably, a lot of her anxiety about being in the public eye stemmed from her highly publicized on-again/off-again relationship with Justin Bieber. Even though Selena doesn't refer to him by name, she does talk about her "first love."
"I think the next time [I have a boyfriend] will be much different … which will definitely not be anytime soon," she shares. "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."
"When you're young and you're being told so many different things … it almost felt like all we had was each other, like the world was against us, in a way," Selena explains about the two’s relationship. "It was really weird but it was incredible." But she doesn't regret a thing.
