Selena Gomez makes her own decisions in life and has finally learnt not to be afraid to ask "dumb questions".

Selena Gomez has the best time dating, but doesn't trust anybody.

The 23-year-old's love life has made headlines over the years, with an on/off relationship with Justin Bieber and brief romance with DJ Zedd sparking interest in her. Currently single, Selena admits being quizzed on her relationships isn't something she enjoys discussing - especially when that's not what she has set out to do.

"I've been dating. I've been having the best time," she told America's Marie Claire magazine. "But I don't trust anybody, so dating can only be fun if I know I'm going to have fun.

"I would try to promote something that I loved, and the entire interview would be about my personal life. I would leave a room feeling defeated, feeling embarrassed, but I would always make sure to put that smile on my face because I wasn't going to let them get to me."

Rather than let her beau's define her as a person, Selena is determined to get her hard work recognised. As well as being an accomplished actress the brunette beauty is a successful singer too, boasting three albums with her band Selena Gomez & the Scene as well as two solo records.

She's currently wowing on her Revival tour, named after her second solo album released last year (15), and has finally learnt how to take control of her career without letting others dictate her.

"Authenticity is my life," she explained. "They (agents and managers) make great choices, but I make the decisions.

"I had to not be afraid to ask dumb questions, which means I asked a million things about ever single step that I was making."

Now jetting around the globe playing shows, Selena is thrilled to finally be doing something which reflects her as a person rather than being viewed as "just this celebrity person". Her acting work is continuing to flow too, with roles in movies Bad Neighbours 2 and upcoming flick In Dubious Battle.
