Selema Gomez Cover’s Seventeen Magazine’s Girl Power Issue
This year is when I really started feeling powerful,’ she says of her personal growth. ‘I had always been the underdog secretly. I was on Disney when it was Miley [Cyrus], the Jonas Brothers and Demi [Lovato]. I questioned the way I looked, acted, sang and wrote.
‘Then I turned 20, went through a really bad breakup and realised I needed to have Come & Get It be amazing. I wanted it all to be me. I’m glad it’s taken me this long to get where I am because now I am ready for it.’
‘I actually talked to Katy Perry about guys who are intimidated by strong girls. I haven’t found someone yet who could understand my lifestyle, support it, love me through it and not be threatened by it,’ she opens up.
‘It’s hard. I do think I might scare some guys, because I’m like, “I want to change the world! I have dreams! What do you want to do?” But I only know how to be me.’
