Gomez goes on to talk about why she started hanging out with Bieber again, whom she's dated off and on since 2010. "I’m 25. I’m not 18, or 19, or 20. I cherish people who have really impacted my life," she explains. "So maybe before, it could have been forcing something that wasn't right. But that doesn't mean caring for someone ever goes away."
Gomez also says she's open to rekindling a lot of her old relationships. "I mean, I grew up with Demi [Lovato]. Nick and Joe [Jonas] and Miley [Cyrus] -- we’ve gone through seasons in our lives. I don’t think it’s as serious as people make things out to be half the time," she notes. "It’s just my life. I grew up with all of these people, and it’s so cool to see where everybody is."
