Ever since Selena Gomez split with The Weeknd last month, she's been spotted out with her high-profile ex, Justin Bieber, on several different occasions.
And in an extremely candid new profile for Billboard as Woman of the Year, she opened up about everything from her surgery to The Weeknd — and, yes, she explained why she's hanging out with Justin again.
The interviewer asked her point blank, "What brought Justin back into your life?" and here's what she had to say:
I’m 25. I’m not 18, or 19, or 20. I cherish people who have really impacted my life. So maybe before, it could have been forcing something that wasn't right. But that doesn't mean caring for someone ever goes away. And [that goes for] people in general. 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. It’s just my life. I grew up with all of these people, and it’s so cool to see where everybody is. It comes back to the idea of me remaining full. I think a true representation of love is beyond just yourself.
