LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Disney darling Selena Gomez might officially be an adult now, but she told Access Hollywood Live’s Billy Bush and Kit Hoover that she still feels like a teen.
“I never do anything that I’m not comfortable with,” the Disney star told Billy and Kit on Tuesday’s show when asked about the pressure of being forced to grow up too fast in Hollywood.
“I’m 18, but I feel like I’m 15,” she explained. “I’ve been very kind of in my own little world… and I love my fans more than I can even explain and they’re all under the age of 12.”
The star of “Wizards of Waverly Place” – which kicks off its new season on Friday on The Disney Channel – told Billy and Kit that she’s currently not dating anyone special.
”[Dating is] really hard actually,” she continued, saying her parents are strict. “[I’d like to date] someone really fun, very nice, someone who can take me away from everything and make me smile.”
Later on Tuesday, Selena stopped by “The Billy Bush Show” and dished more on her love life.
“Falling in love is kind of weird, so you don’t really control it. ‘Oh you’re famous, sorry I can’t fall in love with you!’” the actress/singer, who previously dated Nick Jonas, said. “You kind of can’t help who you’ll fall in love with. I’d date someone who isn’t in the business in a heartbeat.”
