Selena Gomez doesn’t think being in the spotlight is something that comes naturally. Selena insists that she is just like any other girl and can find red carpet events especially nerve racking. Selena, who is currently dating teen sensation Justin Bieber, even admits that she isn’t comfortable at events:

“I am [a normal girl next door]. I can still walk down the street, so in that respect I’m quite lucky. But some things in my life don’t come naturally, like walking the red carpet. It’s pretty scary! It’s not that I’m not confident in myself, it’s just that the red carpet is not somewhere I feel totally comfortable.”

Selena also says that touring can be really tough, especially when she is left alone, but she makes sure to stay in touch with her family which makes her feel much better:

“It’s hard, especially when I’m in a hotel room by myself, thousands of miles away from the people I love. Of course it’s difficult. I miss all the people I love, my family and my friends, when I’m away from home. Thank goodness for Skype, I don’t know what people did before it!”

Selena comments that when she does have some alone time, she prefers to relax and unwind:

“At those times I remind myself that I’m so lucky to be doing what I’m doing, When I feel like that I just go and run a hot bubble bath and relax.”
