The former Disney star, 23, dated Bieber, 21, on and off for three years – and she insists their heartbreaking split won’t stop her falling for someone again in the future, reports mirror.co.uk.
“It’s difficult for people to separate us. The internet wants to freeze this moment in time and constantly repeat it,” Gomez was quoted as saying by the Sunday Times Style Magazine.
“I didn’t think I was doing anything bad by falling in love,” she added.
“There’s such an emphasis on people being the perfect thing and then destroying them because it’s good press. Also throw in the fact that you are a teenager – it makes it more difficult.”
Gomez also mentioned that she’s enjoying single life and dating now, admitting her new relationship will be “dear” to her.
“I’ve been working my b*** off. I’m dating, but I don’t really want anything right now,” she added.
