A lot of interesting facts were revealed about Selena Gomez in her new Harper’s Bazaar cover interview. Topping that list is the fact that going to Hooters is a family tradition. But it’s not what you think. “My mom and dad had me when they were young, and when I was seven, my dad would go to Hooters to watch Spurs games, “she explains. “But he started noticing that when I would come, with my little pigtails, all the waitresses would be like, ’Hey!’ So he ended up half spending time with me but with all those cute girls coming over. And that kind of became our thing.” That’s … nice? And then, she discusses her split with Justin Bieber, as expected, and muses about love. “… To me, love is normal. Of course, you see Jay and Beyoncé and you’re like, ’Oh, my gosh, they’re perfect for each other,’ but at the end of the day their love is just like everybody else’s love. They have problems, I’m sure, and they solve them, like anybody else. So to make it as normal as possible—in such an abnormal lifestyle—was super important to both of us. Which was great … That’s how it should be,” she says. Love Selena, but do not think think the Biebs and her had a “normal” relationship renting out stadiums for one date, couple time in Brazil — awesome, yes, normal, no.
She’s also quite hopeful about the future, which she totally should be considering she’s so young, and so pretty. “I believe in love—yes, I’m one of those girls,” she says. “Most of my friends believe in love. I went out with Katy Perry last night. She’s so fun and awesome, but it’s cool to see someone older believe in love too. She is all about it, and that’s how I will always be. I believe in stories like, ’Oh, I met him in Starbucks.'” Wait … did she just call Katy old?
