Selena Gomez Seeks "Super Private" Love Life, Accepts Pitfalls of Fame

Is she or isn't she?

It's the question on the minds of celebrity gossip followers everywhere.

And while Selena Gomez does not directly address Justin Bieber dating rumors in a new interview with The Observer, she does talk in general about her love life and what it's been like as a famous person.

"I can't be afraid to live my life," Gomez tells the publication, adding that she struggles with the balance between excitement and privacy:

"Everybody falls in love and you would never want to hide something you're so happy about. But I've learned a lot. You keep the things that are super-private to yourself. I definitely want to do that now. But it's so hard."

Case in point: Bieber and Gomez snapped a selfie of each other during a Fourth of July party this month, the sort of action taken by people around the country.

But it led to endless speculation over the couple's status, something that comes along with being a celebrity. It can be less than ideal.

"There'll be days where I'm not bothered at all and I can just go out with my friends to the movies or walk around the park," Selena says.

"But when it gets frustrating, that's when I call [Taylor Swift]. Or [Demi Lovato]. Sometimes it will just be, like: 'Urgh, people are talking about me!' But then it feels gross [to complain], because it comes with what I love to do."

Sounds like someone at least has solid persective on her situation.

But seriously: is she dating Justin Bieber or not?!?
