Selena Gomez is the cover star for Instyle UK's January issue and the cover teases her wanting to date OLDER MEN! Isn't that some scandalous gossip?! After a whirlwind press tour of a year that involved her announcing that she has lupus, answering numerous questions about her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber while witnessing his bizarro apology tour 2k15 and selling her house, it sure has been a busy year for the celebrity!
In the interview, however, Gomez opens up other things besides lupus and selling her home. (The interviewer still managed to bring up J Bibbles.)
On Justin Bieber:
"I'm just tired of talking about it."
On Taylor Swift:
"People have this fantasy that we're in our underwear, having pillow fights. We just play good music — sometimes live — and eat, and hang out." Apparently she also counsels her in "the boy department."
On Zayn Malik:
"If he had asked me out on a date, I would be seen with him. Just kidding, but not kidding."
On not realizing that older creepy men have a thing for young women:
"I feel like I look 16 sometimes, which is a bummer because I would love to date older guys."
