True Selena Gomez ChildhoodFame and fortune hasn't been easy for Selena Gomez. The star opened up in the May issue of GQ about growing up in the spotlight. "I didn’t have an opportunity to figure out my life without people having an opinion every step of the way," she tells the mag. But one thing s for sure -- the 23-year-old does not want your pitty! "I chose this," she declares. "So I’m not gonna sit here and say, 'Oh, my God, poor me, I didn’t have a normal childhood.' I don’t give a f--k about that." And of course, the main aspect of Selena's life that has constantly been in the spotlight is her relationship with Justin Bieber. However, the singer insists she's closing in on that rocky chapter of her life. She recently told the Rolling Stone in an interview, "Honestly, what I would love to be printed is that I am so beyond done with talking about that, and him." But Sel doesn't let bad press get her down. "I don't alter my life because of what people are going to talk about," she declared. "If I go and have a great time, I live my life and nothing is going to dictate how I feel unless I let it." "People have seen most of the choices that I've made in my life. And I love every choice that I've made. Because now I understand how to apply that to my music," she added. "This is who I am. I'm glad my life was never perfect."
