Selena Gomez: I Was Never Popular at School
Selena Gomez is one of the most successful actresses of her generation dating Justin Bieber! She’s talented, beautiful, pretty smart (judging by interviews), kind-hearted, she’s almost perfect! but it appears that studying at school Selena Gomez was less than popular! The 19-year-old revealed in a new interview that she never had very many friends during her student days, preferring instead to be alone. Can you imagine that?
I was never the popular kid at school. I had two friends, but I just sat at the back of the room and got on with my work. School is such an awkward time in your life. I was never confident in school.”
And Selena credits the fact that her cousin was the captain of the cheerleading team at school as the reason that she wasn’t bullied. She added:
Nobody picked on me because my cousin was one of the popular gang. She was always very protective of me, so I guess I was very lucky.”
Since leaving school when she was unknown, Selena has made a huge success for herself both as a singer and actress
Selena also said that while she might be dating one of the world’s biggest heartthrobs now, she was never particularly lucky in love at school. She said:
I never went out with guys at school. I had a crush on a guy, but I never told him about it. I did the thing that a lot of girls do: I avoided him!”
You need that self confidence if you want to chat to the guy you like. If you’re confident with yourself, and you’re okay with that, then you should go for it.”
Former Wizards of Waverly Place star Selena also took the opportunity in the interview to talk about how she deals with negative criticism. She said:
There’s a lot of rejection in this industry and it’s tough. There are also a lot of obstacles that you have to go through and it can be really exhausting. But if you love it, then that’s all that matters. You’ve got to go for it. I still have people trying to bring me down, but I’m happy because I love what I do. Ignore the cruel jibes and stick with the nice people.”
I’m lucky because I have a lot of support from my family and friends. I have so many amazing things in my life. I have a healthy, loving family and I have amazing fans. That’s all that matters to me. I try my best to not dwell on the bad stuff. Focus on the positive.”
Selena’s interview came as Disney Channel launched Superbia, an online game which gives Wizards of Waverly Place fans the chance to decorate an online home in the latest Wizards style, and dress up like their favouirte characters.
