Selena Gomez didn't think she was doing anything "bad" by dating Justin Bieber.
The 23-year-old beauty - who dated the 'Boyfriend' hitmaker on and off for a number of years - has admitted she is fed up of people not being able to "separate" the pair of them.
She said: "It's difficult for people to separate us. The internet wants to freeze this moment in time and constantly repeat it ... I didn't think I was doing anything bad by falling in love."
When asked if she is in love at the moment, she replied: "No. I've been working my butt off. I'm dating, but I don't really want anything."
The 'Good For You' hitmaker also admitted she found it difficult balancing growing up in the spotlight with a relationship.
She added to The Sunday Times' Style magazine: "There's such an emphasis on people being the perfect thing and then destroying them because it's good press.
"Also throw in the fact that you are a teenager - it makes it more difficult. The next relationship will be something dear to me. There is no way I will ever hide my life."
