Selena Gomez reveals she’s ‘enjoying’ single life and details her list of requirements for her dream man: ‘You gotta be cool, man!’
Five days after dropping her new song Single Soon, two-time Grammy nominee Selena Gomez revealed she’s ‘enjoying’ being solo at the moment, but she does keep a checklist for her future dream man.
‘You gotta be cool, man!’ the 31-year-old ‘Texican’ pop star told SiriusXM Hits 1 LA with Tony Fly and Symon on Wednesday.
‘Not cool in the sense that people think you’re cool. You just gotta be nice and, like, please make me laugh and also just be good to my family and people around you.’
In her new ‘playful anthem about being comfortable in your own skin’ Selena sings about being ‘a little high maintenance, but I’m worth a try.’
‘The line was really fun because I’m not ashamed to say, “I actually require X, Y, and Z for you to be with me,”‘ Gomez clarified.
‘So, in a way, it was just meant to be for the attitude of the song. And that’s genuinely how I feel…I think I have standards, and I think I live in a world right now where boys confuse standards with high maintenance.’
The two-time Emmy-nominated producer added: ‘I’m just enjoying where I’m at and I just want to be happy with who I am so that whenever that person comes into my life, I can just have them add on to me instead of being this insecure, you know, person that I normally used to be.’
Selena – who was last romantically linked to The Chainsmokers’ Drew Taggart and former One Direction boybander Zayn Malick – included the lyric ‘I don’t wanna see a tear / And the weekend’s almost here’ which left some speculating Single Soon was about her 10-month romance with The Weeknd in 2017.
However, Gomez shut down the rumor about the 33-year-old Grammy winner (born Abel Tesfaye) on a Hollywood Life Instagram post from Sunday, commenting: ‘Couldn’t be more false.’
On Wednesday, the ex-girlfriend of Justin Bieber – who boasts 648M social media followers – Instastoried a snap of her hand in a cast, which she had broken and had surgery for recently.
Selena currently executive produces and stars as true-crime podcaster Mabel Mora in Steve Martin and John Hoffman’s 10-episode third season of Only Murders in the Building, which airs Tuesdays on Hulu.
