"It's difficult for people to separate us," Gomez told the Sunday Times. "The Internet wants to freeze this moment in time and constantly repeat it …I didn't think I was doing anything bad by falling in love.”

“There's such an emphasis on people being the perfect thing and then destroying them because it's good press. Also through in the fact that you are a teenager – it makes it more difficult,” the 23 year old added.

Gomez also revealed that the one person who was always there for her though her heartache was fellow singer, Taylor Swift. "I can count on one hand the people I could call and who would be there for me," Gomez said.

"Taylor is one of the greatest people. When I split with my first boyfriend [Nick Jonas] and I was really sad about it, she flew into town with homemade cookies and a bunch of junk food. To this day, if I called her, she would do the same thing, despite being one of the busiest people in the world."

"I'm not embarrassed to say [I wore the ring]," Gomez explained. "I'm also not embarrassed to say that the ring has come off. I got it when I was 13 and I respect so much what it represented, but it isn't for everyone," she added.
