The 23-year-old singer "didn't care" about scrutiny around her personal life until her breakup with the 21-year-old heartthrob. "To me it was: I'm 18, I have a boyfriend, we look cute together, we like that. Then I got my heart broken and I cared," she revealed. "Because people had no idea what was going on, but everywhere it was a million different things I was kind of in a corner, banging my head against the wall. I didn’t know where to go."
Fans of Gomez and Bieber shouldn't expect a rekindled romance anytime soon. Gomez said that their on-again, off-again relationship has made her "so exhausted."
"I honestly am so done," she added. "I care about his health and well-being. But I can't do it anymore."
Gomez also cleared up any rumors that she has beef with Miley Cyrus. "Obviously, she wouldn't want to be doing what I'm doing, and I wouldn't want to be doing what she's doing. But I’m a fan of her music -- I don't know if she’d say that about me," Gomez -- who dated Nick Jonas after Cyrus -- explained. "We never feuded. We both liked the same guy when we were 16. It was just a Hilary Duff–Lindsay Lohan thing: 'Oh, my God, we like the same boy!' We are now completely settled in our own lives."
