Selena Gomez hints that her relationship with Justin Bieber was ‘a little toxic’

‘You think, “Oh, that’s love,” and I believed that for a long time.’

  • Selena Gomez opened up about her love life and shared that first loves can be ‘a little toxic.’
  • Sel very publicly dated Justing Bieber when they were younger, so it seems like she’s referring to him…

Hello, good morning, and I hope you’re ready for some more Selena Gomez dramz because that’s what we’re about to dive into.

While everyone has been busy speculating about whether or not Sel’s two new singles are about Justin Bieber (and they really, really seem like they are!), Selena has been out here doing press for her new music and opening up about her love life without naming names. In her most recent interview on the Zach Sang Show, Selena went there and talked about how her first love (*cough* Justin *cough*) was ‘a little toxic.’ She said:

You’re in a phase of life where you experience love for the first time and I think that can just be just a little toxic. You have this codependency that you think is love and then you have this addiction to the passion and the frustration with each other that you think, ‘Oh, that’s love,’ or fighting or doing all this stuff, ‘Oh that’s love,’ and I believed that for a long time.


She also shared that she’s been ‘super, super single for two years,’ and now knows what she wants from her next relationship. She said, ‘I want it to be real and I don’t want it to be codependent or messy or lack of communication. I think you know when you get older, you find people that are actually right for you, that are actually on the same wavelength.’ And reading between the lines that seem to suggest that maybe some of her past relationships had those problems, but that’s just a theory!

All that said, don’t expect to see Selena coupled up anytime soon—for now, she’s happy being single. She added, ‘I’m chillin right now, you guys. Honestly, [dating] is so stressful so I’ve been having way too much fun being on my own. It sucked for the first year, I was like, “I just wanna cuddle, I just wanna watch something and be adored.” Now it feels good. Now it feels awesome.’
