Selena Gomez is coming out of her shell in a big way these days.
When Selena and Justin Bieber broke up for the 475th time late last year, we figured they'd get back together yet again and that Selena would continue her efforts to convince the world that her douchey boo is not actually the world's biggest D-bag.
Instead, she surprised us by cutting ties and starting a new relationship. Selena is dating Zedd these days, and the young couple seems to be moving rather quickly.
Even better, Selena is celebrating her post-Bieber independence with a racy cover shoot for the new issue of V magazine:
Naturally, in the accompanying interview, Selena was asked about her traumatic relationship with the Biebs, and thankfully, it sounds like she's definitively no longer a Belieber:
"I was 18 years old and it was my first love," Selena says. "The older I get, I'm guarding certain things more. When you're young and you're being told so many different things...It almost felt like all we had was each other...You live and you learn, you know?"
We're sure Justin is happy to hear that Selena still values their time together. We're guessing he's less thrilled by all the news of Selena and Zedd's sex life.
