The past year and a half has been really transitional for me, just personally, as well as transitioning into becoming a woman.

Quotes[edit]

  • In 2014 this stage was actually the first time that I was authentically, 100 percent honest with all of you. I think it’s safe to say that all of you know my life whether I like it or not. I had to stop because I had everything and I was absolutely broken inside. I kept it all together enough to where I would never let you down but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down. I don’t want to see your bodies on Instagram. I want to see what’s in here [holds chest]. I’m not trying to get validation nor do I need it anymore. All I can say from the bottom of my heart is I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to be able to share what I love every single day with people that I love. I have to say thank you so much to my fans because you guys are so damn loyal and I don’t know what I did to deserve you. If you are broken you do not have to stay broken. If that’s anything whether you respect me or not that’s one thing you should know about me. I care about people. Thank you so much for this. This is for you.
    • Speech at the AMAs 2016 when she won the 'Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist' award
  • I’m going to be very open with everybody about this: I’ve been to four treatment centres. I think when I started hitting my early twenties is when it started to get really dark, when I started to feel like I was not in control of what I was feeling, whether that was really great or really bad.

Selena Gomez: You are the company you keep[edit]

"Selena Gomez: You are the company you keep". CNN. July 24, 2013.
  • The past year and a half has been really transitional for me, just personally, as well as transitioning into becoming a woman. I still feel like I'm 15 sometimes and then other times, I'm wanting to feel comfortable in my body and my skin.
  • I was able to have full creative control over it. Before, I would have maybe a month or two to record an album, and I'd have to do my series at the same time and tour on the weekends. I wasn't in the right mindset to fully give my all.
  • I truly believe that you are who you surround yourself with. To me, it's that easy. I have a great family, I have great friends, and my mom is like my mama bear. She's the one that's going to tell me 'no' when everyone around me says 'yes.' It's a good thing to have a tight group that will keep you in check.

Selena Gomez Talks New Single and Justin Bieber: ‘I’m Upset When He’s Upset’[edit]

  • Everybody wants to form their own opinions anyway. I think the biggest problem I had this year — even with [Justin] and on his side — is identity. I was trying to figure out what I’m doing, and that was the first time I was constantly being kicked down for doing that. When I didn’t know, I just wanted to say, ‘This is what I want, this is where I am in my professional life, things changed in my personal life, things changed in my heart — everything.’ And people just thought, ‘Alright, this is what we think.’ And yeah, I made some decisions that weren’t great as well, and so did he and that’s why we went through all that to only make us better. And he has heard [the song] and he has seen the video, and it’s something that I feel like girls need hear, and it’s something I’m willing to share with people.
  • Honestly, music is an expression, and if you will be that voice for these girls, there are some people that feel this. This is universal.
  • [I learned] how to love myself first. And not just in a relationship, just my everyday life,” she admits. “I give myself so much, I let people pull at me in every direction, and I want everybody to be happy. Eventually I would be in my bathroom sobbing right before I go onstage. And then I’d just put myself onstage and I’d want to be there for those people. I never took a moment to just go, go away and be myself and figure it out. I kept pushing myself and I think the biggest thing I learned is, it’s okay. I’m going to stop when I need to stop, I’m going to feel when I need to feel, and I don’t care what comes with that or what people want to say. It’s normal. I’m suppose to keep going and that’s all I want to do.
  • I support him. I think I always will. I’m upset when he’s upset, I’m happy when he’s happy. I don’t want anything to ever happen to him bad. It hurts me. That’s all.

Song lyrics[edit]

Kiss & Tell (2009)[edit]

  • You (you)
    You're falling down
    The world's not spinning 'round
    You (you)
    When you're falling down
    No, it's not all about
    You (you)
    When you're falling down
    You know I'll be around
    When you're falling down, falling down

    Falling down, down, down, you're falling down.

  • You are the thunder, and I am the lightning
    And I love the way you know
    Who you are, and to me, it's exciting
    When you know it's meant to be

    Everything comes naturally, it comes naturally
    When you're with me, baby
    Everything comes naturally, it comes naturally
    Ba-ba-baby

A Year Without Rain (2010)[edit]

  • I'm missing you so much
    Can't help it, I'm in love
    A day without you is like a year without rain
    I need you by my side
    Don't know how I'll survive
    A day without you is like a year without rain
    Whoa, oh, whoa

When the Sun Goes Down (2011)[edit]

  • Who says?
    Who says you're not perfect?
    Who says you're not worth it?
    Who says you're the only one that's hurtin'?
    Trust me, that's the price of beauty
    Who says you're not pretty?
    Who says you're not beautiful?
    Who says?
  • I, I love you like a love song, baby
    I, I love you like a love song, baby
    I, I love you like a love song, baby
    And I keep hitting repeat-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat (oh)
    I, I love you like a love song, baby (oh)
    I, I love you like a love song, baby (oh)
    I, I love you like a love song, baby (oh)
    And I keep hitting repeat-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat
