With her new movie "Hotel Transylvania" set to hit theaters on September 21st, Selena Gomez got a jumpstart on promotions by covering the September 2012 issue of Teen Vogue magazine.
The 20-year-old actress looked darling in an American Eagle Outfitters shirt with a Jill Stuart bralet and a Gucci necklace for the Boo George shot front page while dishing about topics including movies, music, style and her relationship with Justin Bieber.
Highlights from Miss Gomez's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Teen Vogue!
On moving away from teen roles:
"Monte Carlo was a good step for me at the time, but I would never want to do something like that again."
On her acting goals:
"Being part of the Disney Channel was such a blessing, and I'm super happy with what my show accomplished, but acting is something I would like to take on more seriously. I don't necessarily feel accomplished. I want to create a whole different persona when it comes to acting."
On her next album:
"It's going to be different — a little older but still really fun."
On her dream music collaboration:
"Who I would die to work with, but I don't think he ever would—I don't even think he's doing music anymore—is Justin Timberlake. Just 'cause I love his music sooo much."
On her personal style:
"I've never been comfortable with saying, 'Here's a top that I'm going to sell for $350, and it's just a T-shirt.' I get sent things that are really nice, and I'm like, 'This is cute,' and I look at the tag and it's $200. I'm like, Oh my gosh, people probably think I buy it, and I don't. It's really weird."
On her relationship:
"It's really fun. I'm lucky. I'm 20. I don't take anything in my personal life too seriously. I have great friends and a solid group of people I love. I feel like everything else will come organically."
