She really can do it, people! Selena Gomez really can give an interview without once mentioning Justin Bieber.
The singer proved she’s her own woman and her own artist yesterday by sitting for an extensive Google Hangout in order to promote her new collection for Adidas NEO.
And the topic of her famous ex-boyfriend (who supposedly believes Gomez is The One) was never addressed
"I’ve been endlessly working on my new album, that’s almost kind of close to being done," the singer told fans of when they might hear new music.
Selena has been in the studio "constantly" and is clearly excited by what’s on tap:
"Just know that it’s the best that I’ve ever done and you guys won’t be disappointed. I wish i could play it for you now but I can’t."
Asked a number of silly questions, Gomez grew very serious when the issue of bullying arose, saying simply:
"People are so mean, it’s exhausting."
Sadly, Gomez has first-hand experience. She recently shot down a body-shaming troll who told the singer to "stop eating junk food."
One fan in Berlin also asked Selena about the "meaning of life,” to which she joked about only being 22 years old… so she isn’t certain yet.
But she later explained:
"I think life is very, very, very hard and I’ve never had anything come super easy to me no matter what people may think, and I continue to be the best I can be and I just want to enjoy it.
"We only have one life and it is very precious, there’s a lot that we can do and there’s a lot that we should do.
"If you’re good and you’re kind to other people and you work hard and you’re actually doing something with your life, I think that’s so fulfilling."
