Disney Channel star Selena Gomez recently opened up on her relationship with teen pop star Justin Bieber to NBC’s Access Hollywood. Gomez, 18, who has been seen in numerous photos holding hands with Bieber, revealed during the interview that she has deep feelings for Bieber, but confesses she doesn’t understand the level of interest in their relationship.
“I love him. He’s been in my life a very long time. He’s my friend,” she told Access Hollywood. “I think it’s awesome people are interested – I don’t understand why.” She also confessed that didn’t spend time with Bieber on Valentine’s Day on Monday because she was busy working. “I’m actually going to be working all day, so my Valentine will be my fans,” she noted.
The ‘Wizards of Waverly Place’ actress – who has been linked to Nick Jonas and Taylor Lautner in the past – previously claimed she thought of Bieber as a “brother” and wouldn’t be able to date him. She said: “Oh brother! He’s little. No, he’s like my little brother. It’s weird to me.”
However, Canadian-born Bieber has hinted he may be dating someone special, although didn’t mention Selena by name. He said: “I’m dating. I date a lot of different people. I’m 16, so I just have fun.”
