Selena Gomez Defends Young Stars, Labels Business "Very Hard"

by at . Comments

In a new interview with KIIS 108, Selena Gomez sort of stood up for a couple of her fellow young stars.

Asked about growing up in Hollywood, and most likely referencing the recent troubles that have befallen Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato, Gomez told the radio station:

"It's a very hard business and I feel like people don't really understand what we go through. We're kids. People make mistakes. People have to figure out what we like and don't like."

Sounds nice and grounded, doesn't it? Perhaps Justin Bieber fans shouldn't be so quick to hate on Gomez for possibly dating their dream man.

What has kept this star out of the negative news? Says Selena: "I have a great family. I have parents that treat me like a normal kid. I know that I have a responsibility [to my fans]."

Obviously, you guys missed the entire point she was trying to make. Ya'll keep saying you hope she continues to stay on track, and not end up like Demi and Miley. None of these people are perfect. Their human just like us, and like us, they too make mistakes. It's just best they learn from their mistakes, rather than repeat them. I hate the stereotypes that people expect celebs to be perfect because all eyes are always on them. Like Selena stated, it's a tough business with alot of responsibilities to take on. It's not as easy as it appears to be. I'd like to see you guys be a celeb and see what it's like. I'm sure it'll change your whole perspective. Miley, Demi, Selena, I wish each of you the best of luck with 2011. Make it rock!
