Selena Gomez says she has been 'super, super single' for two years despite her brief reunion with Justin Bieber last year
Selena Gomez is all open to love again, almost two years after she called things off with her on-again, off-again former beau Justin Bieber for good.
Popularly known as Jelena, the former couple called it quits back in March 2018, and now, the 27-year-old Gomez has finally confirmed that she is single and all ready to mingle once again.
"I've been super, super single for two years and I want to know what the love will look like next for me," the singer shared on the Zach Sang Show on October 25.
As if the two-year timeline wasn't hinted enough that she hasn't been in a relationship since she broke up with 25-year-old Bieber, the 'Bad Liar' singer added how she doesn't want to dwell on the negativity of a love gone wrong.
"I never want to lose the sense of love that I imagine it to be," she continued, adding: "I don't want to get jaded or bitter from anything."
"I believe that it exists and I'm happy waiting for that for however long that takes because we’re gonna be like doing this forever. It's just going to keep happening until we’re out," she shared.
Gomez and Bieber had quite the tumultuous romance that goes way back almost a decade, as the two first made news of being together back in 2010.
And with Bieber's recent wedding to wife Hailey happening just weeks before Gomez release two new singles — 'Look at Her Now' and 'Lose You to Love Me', it's no secret these songs hint very much at their past relationship.
Not shying away from opening up about her experience in love, Gomez shared how she wants other women to relate to her. "You're in a phase of life where you experience love for the first time and I think that can just be just a little toxic," she continued, carefully avoiding any name.
"You have this codependency that you think is love and then you have this addiction to the passion and the frustration with each other that you think, 'Oh, that's love', or fighting or doing all this stuff, 'Oh that’s love', and I believed that for a long time."
This isn't the first song Gomez has admittedly penned about their love. Her massive 2014 hit 'The Heart Wants What It Wants' is also on that list.
The two hit it off a final time in 2017, shortly after Gomez had broken up with 29-year-old The Weeknd, but the romance ended within a year.
"I want it to be real and I don't want it to be codependent or messy or lack of communication," Gomez reflected, discussing what she wants in her next relationship.
She added: "I think you know when you get older, you find people that are actually right for you, that are actually on the same wavelength. I just think I would do so many things differently and I think it starts with just being very transparent."
"I don’t have room to kind of buffer things that I need or that I want and I think girls can sometimes be scared of that because what we’re viewed as — crazy or needy or overthinking things and dramatic — and I understand sometimes."
She added, "but I love being a girl and I love having the emotions I have and falling super deep and then being passionate. It's just about containing it. It's just channeling it in the right areas."
