Selena Gomez says you should never change who you are to impress a guy

Selena Gomez - Justin Bieber - Never Say Never Movie PremiereThe 19-year-old star – who is dating 17-year-old Justin Bieber – admits she has tried to please ex-boyfriends by altering her personality but she would never do it again because it made her “miserable” and she insists her female fans should follow her advice.

The only thing I ever tell my fans is it’s just not worth it to be someone you’re not. I’ve conformed to a lot of guys that I liked before; it’s very easy to want to be what they want you to be. But in the end, it just wasn’t enjoyable and I was miserable half the time. Now, I’m very straightforward.” —Selena Gomez, Candy

Selena also cryptically praised Justin as a boyfriend, by adding: “The best person is someone you can be yourself with.”

The young couple have been dating since March and Justin recently admitted he was “shocked” when the Monte Carlo star agreed to go out with him.

Speaking about how their relationship started, the ‘Baby’ singer said: “I was pretty shocked. She’s very beautiful. We started as friends like two years ago, so we’ve been friends for a long time, so that’s pretty much kind of how it started.”
