Selena Gomez: Success is nothing without love

Selena Gomez is no longer romantically involved with Justin Bieber and is content being single.
The singer dated pop star Justin Bieber on-and-off since 2011 but has confirmed they are currently not in a relationship together.
Selena opened up to TV presenter Ryan Seacrest for a special E! interview, where she discussed what she learned from dating such a high-profile celebrity.
"You are who you surround yourself with. I know that's such a cliché quote, but it's true. I've just witnessed it too much [with other Hollywood stars' relationships]," Selena explained.
"At the end of the day, success is nothing if you don't have the right people to share it with - you're just gonna end up lonely. I learned a lot [from dating Justin]. I learned that I should definitely keep it way more private next time. [Since we split] I've had my moments. It's fun to go to some of the parties and it's just fun to meet people."
Selena feels she now knows what she wants out of a relationship. The brunette beauty finds trustworthy men the most attractive.
"Honesty," Selena answered about what she looks for in a guy. "Egos turn me off, big time. I mean it's hard to just date in this industry, it really is, because it doesn't have to be anything serious, it can just be something fun - and it should be because I'm young - but, you just can't really help the people that you meet or that you fall in love with or that you wanna date. I want someone who can make me laugh and just be normal and understand my lifestyle and how I wanna live it. I think I'm OK with being content right now. I think that's what I'm happy with and then whatever happens, happens."
Selena turns 21 today and shared her birthday plans with Ryan. She joked that she's looking forward to ordering a large red wine at her party.
"I'll have a birthday party but I'll have a dinner on the actual birthday and I will order my first glass at a restaurant," she excitedly finished.
