Selena Gomez References "Bad" Justin Bieber Breakup, Feels So Very "Powerful"

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Selena Gomez is doing her best to move on from Justin Bieber.

She was even spotted with a mystery man this week at the Sundance Film Festival.

But the singer's ex-boyfriend allegedly keeps sending her mean texts, making it difficult for Selena to step away and be on her own, something she tells Seventeen she is VERY ready for.

"I turned 20 [and] went through a really bad breakup, and realized I needed to have 'Come & Get It' be amazing," she said of gaining self-esteem and independence. "I wanted it all to be me. I'm glad it's taken me this long to get where I am because now I am ready for it."

Selena said she started to feel "powerful" over the past year, finally shedding the "underdog" status she has wore for so long as a result of being on Disney with such superstars as Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato and The Jonas Brothers.

The young artist emphasized in the interview that she's single and that she recently spoke to someone else famous about what to look for in a man.

"I actually talked to Katy Perry about guys who are intimidated by strong girls. I haven't found someone yet who could understand my lifestyle, support it, love me through it, and not be threatened by it.

"It's hard. I do think I might scare some guys, because I'm like, 'I want to change the world! I have dreams! What do you want to do?' But I only know how to be me."

That's just fine, Selena. Keep having that strong attitude and keep sizzling as you do in these pics and you'll be just fine...

So glad Sel' is searching for the right one(or at least someone new). She deserves so much more than what she's received so far from her relationships.

In many,many,ways...
From your on-going battle for kids by being an ambassador for Unicef(which puts you in league with legends such as Alyssa Milano). Your 'Red Kettle' projects. That incredible thing you did for stray dogs(I'm not mentioning it anymore,but it deserves much praise,believe that!) Works like these have a strong impact on the planet at large. And on many who populate it...
Why do you think you 'Little's like 'Georgie' make video messages saying how much they look up to you? It isn't just your singing,acting or performing---it's also everything else you accomplish and continue to stand-up for---that's why...
And don't worry---the 'Right' guy is out there. And, you will find him,or he will find you...That is,if you pick the guy who fills your heart---for the right reasons---not just because you like him and he finds it amusing to yank your feelings around,just because he can...
So go on,girl---Strut it! LOL! You're gonna be just Fine...
