Selena Gomez‘s romance with Justin Bieber initially earned the Wizards Of Wavely Place star death threats on Twitter, but she doesn’t sound like she’s going to bother hiding their relationship in the future. “I don’t like hiding,” Gomez told Seventeen in a new interview. “I do like to keep certain things to myself, but at the end of the day, I’m eighteen, and I’m going to fall in love. I’m going to hang out with people, and I’m going to explore myself, and I’m okay with that.” Baby, baby, baby, oh! How do her and the Biebs’ parents feel about this urge to “explore” herself? And where is that ol’ purity ring anyway?
Between celebrating her Bieber love and close friendship with Taylor Swift (“I’ve known Taylor for over three years now, so we’re at the point where we just get each other”), it’s a good thing she also has nice things to say about those potentially jealous Beliebers. “I do see the passion that a lot of these girls have, and it’s beautiful. I love it. I really do. It’s special.” Just don’t break his heart someday, girl—we’d hate to be receiving end of their passion then.
