Selena Gomez has become Billboard’s 2017 Woman of the Year and in her cover story for December 9th issue of the magazine, the 25-year-old Fetish singer broke her silence about her split from The Weeknd and reunion with her on-off boyfriend with Justin Bieber.
The Bad Liar singer said of her October breakup with 27-year-old The Weeknd whom she broke up after 10 months of dating.
Something that I’m really proud of is that there’s such a true friendship [between us]. I truly have never experienced anything like that in my life. We ended it as best friends, and it was genuinely about encouraging and caring [for each other], and that was pretty remarkable for me.

As for 23-year-old Justin entering her life once again, Selena said:
I’m 25. I’m not 18, or 19, or 20. I cherish people who have really impacted my life. So maybe before, it could have been forcing something that wasn’t right. But that doesn’t mean caring for someone ever goes away.
She further added:
That goes for “people in general. I mean, I grew up with Demi [Lovato]. Nick and Joe [Jonas] and Miley [Cyrus] — we’ve gone through seasons in our lives. I don’t think it’s as serious as people make things out to be half the time. It’s just my life. I grew up with all of these people, and it’s so cool to see where everybody is. It comes back to the idea of me remaining full. I think a true representation of love is beyond just yourself. … The littlest things are impactful.
As earlier this month reported, the Disney alum and the Love Yourself crooner are reunited officially three years after they broke up.
