Selena Gomez: 'The Most Attractive Thing' About A Woman Is Confidence

Selena Gomez has shown her sultry side in recent weeks with her latest singles, “Come & Get It” and “Slow Down.”

But is the former Disney star – who turned 21 in July – happy with her sexier image?

“I think the most attractive thing about a woman, for me, is confidence,” Selena told Access Hollywood during a visit to her “Stars Dance” tour rehearsal. “So, because I turned 21 this year and a lot of great things have happened for me, that’s the one thing I want to exude.”

The singer/actress said her newfound confidence has definitely influenced her style and prompted her to vamp up her look.

“I’ve become a bit more about the red lip and being a little bit more – I like to say confident, as opposed to sexy, even though that’s what I feel,” she said. “And I feel very comfortable in my skin.”

Selena said she doesn’t feel like she’s completed the transition from child star to adult, but is getting closer.

“I still feel like I’m 15 sometimes when I’m running around and getting to live my dream all the time, but I definitely feel like I’ve become my own [person],” she told Access.

As for her whether she’s heard from her recently revealed crushes Jesse McCartney and Logan Lerman, Selena said it’s been quiet on the crush front.

“Gosh, no! I think they’re staying far from me,” she said with a laugh. “It’s fine.”
