Selena Gomez is happy despite the rumors of a breakup from Canadian crooner Justin Bieber and recently spoke about about shedding her good girl image.
Gomez, 20-year-old actress and singer, recently opened up to E! Online about enjoying her life after reports of her ending a highly publicized relationship with 18-year-old Bieber.
"I've been recording, having a lot of fun with my girlfriends, having a good time," she told E!.
While Gomez is readying an album, she did not seem ready to share if Bieber inspired any content on her upcoming project. Instead, she spoke about enjoying her ability to express herself in her latest musical effort.
"I'm having a lot of fun expressing everything that I'm feeling," Gomez said.
Bieber was more forthcoming about his breakup with Gomez in a recent interview with Billboard.
"There's so many rumors," Bieber said. "People say I call Selena every day and she won't pick up the phone or I'm chasing her down, and these are all fake stories."
While Bieber told the publication that he was not in a happy place, he opened up about writing the song "Nothing Like Us" for Gomez.
"Because at the end of the day, there's nothing like us, you know? That's just it," Bieber told Billboard. "It is what it is. People are going to relate to that."
However Gomez seems to be ready to move on from her past, and spoke about shedding the Disney channel image created when she took on a lead role on the network's "Wizards of Waverly Place" television show.
"I've been telling people I'm definitely a little bit more sassy now," Gomez told E! "I'm a little bit more mouthy."
The actress said some fans may be surprised to see her in an edgier role when she appears in the upcoming movie Spring Breakers.
"I think people are used to seeing me in a certain way," she said. "I think it will be a little shocking for people, but in a good way. The movie as a whole is a lot to take in, and I've definitely expressed that to my younger fans."
