Selena Gomez’s romance with The Weeknd has not only been whirlwind, but worldwide too. Buzzing from Italian art galleries to the Met Gala red-carpet, the pair have not been shy in hiding their blossoming affections.
In a recent interview, the 24-year-old has explained why she has been so open with her new love.
“It’s really hard when I would want to spend so much time hiding things,” she told Ryan Seacrest of the relationship which began at the start of the year, reports The Cut.
It’s no secret that for those in the public eye, keeping your private life actually private can be a tricky thing to manage. Selena agrees: “It’s too much pressure, and I think everyone gets over everything eventually.”
Selena’s motivation for making her relationship public – even when it was in its early stages, and only a few months after The Weeknd split from Bella Hadid – was the result of ensuring she put her happiness first. “I just want to be happy,” she told the producer and presenter. “If that’s me just being myself, then I don’t really care.”
