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.”

For more from Gomez, check out and the June issue, on stands May 17, and tell us: What do you think of Gomez’s new, edgier side?

That’s why she looks different!!!! I love Selena, don’t get me wrong. She is still a role model for me. But lately i’ve been beginning to see a difference in her face. Now i know, its stress! She always led a real easy going, placid lifestyle, and it definetely showed on her countenance. Now however, you can really see the stress. Not saying she isn’t as attractive, or anything, just that she simply looks different, not a bad different, just….different lol.

You’re stressed out because the stuff you care for in life is so trivial and shallow.

And as a native Texan, I resent the comment about how you should be married with kids already. I am 34, about to celebrate my 3rd wedding anniversary, and have no children (and am quite happy about that!). Not only that but I know several other women in their late 20’s/early 30’s who are also unmarried and have no kids – by choice! Stop fueling the false, idiotic stereotypes!

I wonder why she went the music route when she can’t really sing… She’s a descent actress through. I bet she would be great in rom-coms in the future.

Evian, congratulations on your accomplishments. However, you just did the same thing that Selena did: stereotyped people based on where they are from. I am from Arkansas and I have a degree, got married, then had kids. Most of my friends did the same as me, so maybe you need to think before you comment. I mean no disrespect, but your comment stuck out to me.

Selena is young and will date boys that most of us would scoff at because we all know better. Justin is young, too, and leads a type of life most of us only read about. It’s easy for us to make judgments about these kids. but let’s all remember what mistakes we made when we were their ages.

Why she was/is still with little boy Justin Bieber? She will do very well and successful by wriitng her own songs and in any movies by herself. She is sweetheart and deserves a good man of her own (A real Man not little boy!) Good luck, Selena.

Desperate. Keep riding on Justin’s fame and fortune ;) Since your movie, music and even your perfume deal isn’t working out. If all else fails, totally keep showing off more skin! There’s always porn.
