Selena Gomez: I'm Writing Songs For Justin Bieber

If you noticed Selena Gomez‘s style is getting pretty edgy post-Bieber breakup, well, good, you were supposed to.

In the June issue of InStyle (check out an exclusive inside pic below!) the star says that as part of her growing period, she’s hoping to push fashion boundaries. “I like to show a little bit of skin in a nice way,” she says. “I love picking out clothes, and it would be a blast to just play dress-up all the time.”

But she also admits that the pressure to get on a best-dressed list stresses her out, and so does her future career, her new music — you name it. “I’m stressed out most of the time,” she shares.

The one thing that isn’t really causing her stress these days: her love life. Despite her on-again, off-again relationship relationship with Justin Bieber, Gomez swears she’s trying to take dating slow.

“I’m from Texas, so I should be married with children already,” she tells the magazine. “I’m in love with love and totally believe in marriage, but that’s not even on my radar right now. I am not putting energy into dating.”

And though she may not be putting energy into dating, songwriting is a totally different story. She admits to penning a track on her new album just for Bieber, which she calls “personal” and adds “I’m sure he’ll love it, too.”

I like how one person is all mad because of the Texas comment then goes on to stereotype Arkansas. How is what you just said any different than what she said?

So she’s actually not writing songs FOR Peepster, rather one song on her own new album is ABOUT him…great twist People! Seriously though, having his ex write songs about him is the last thing the spoiled brat needs right now, it’ll only fuel his already overblown ego more. She’d be better off offering him a good kick in the behind, a splash of ice water in the face and a nice watch so he might just grow up, get serious and show up on stage ON TIME rather than leaving his prepubescent fans out to wait for 2-3 hours!

Young lady, you are far too beautiful and young to be STRESSED OUT all the time. You have looks and $$ MANY young girls would envy. Enjoy it and enjoy life, honey.

I think you mean “about” Justin…”for” implies that she is writing a song for him to sing.

She’s beautiful but the girl can’t sing. Not sure how writing songs for Bieber will help him since her singing career is not exactly skyrocketing.
