Selena Gomez has finally came out and spoke regarding the hate she gets from Justin Bieber fans since the pair stepped out as a couple.
As has happened with any woman Justin has probably ever even stood next to, Gomez was the recipient of death threats, hate tweets, and probably some voodoo spells by little girls plagued with Bieber fever all over the world. For the first time, she talked about it, and also admitted that she used to be young and stupid, too.
Appearing on the Late Show with David Letterman, Gomez explains, “It’s hard. It hurts, it really does. I don’t feel like I’m doing anything wrong. I’ve been best friends with him for a very long time. It does hurt my feelings a lot but I try not to focus on it. I have a strong family and great fans.”
But the singer/actress adds that she understands where these girls are coming from, because she used to be one! Gomez used to be an obsessed fan of Jesse McCartney.
“I have to agree with them sometimes. I loved Jesse McCartney. I was obsessed with him. He dated Katie Cassidy when he was 16 or 17. I hated her, absolutely hated her. I was mortified that he was with Katie and I wanted to be with him. He was my screen-saver! I just did a movie (Monte Carlo) with Katie Cassidy and she was the nicest person ever.”
Hate, and death threats. Just a part of growing up female!
