Selena Gomez is spreading words of wisdom about relationships that you just need to hear. As InStyle's September cover, Sel was generous enough to answer questions about her love life, and questions about Justin Bieber didn't faze her. She says, "I've wanted to be in a strong headspace for years, and I really wasn't. Before I was so young and easily influenced, and I'd feel insecure." She shared what she learned about love over the years, "I don't depend on one area of my life to make me happy." She also says, "You want someone to add to your life, not to complete you." When she talked about her present relationship with Abel, she said the sweetest thing—making us want to ship them even more! She goes, "I'm lucky because he's more of a best friend than anything else." That's some major relationship goals right there! (via mtv.com)

Obviously, the wand holds a significant value to her and the time in her life growing up in the spotlight. When talking about it, she said, "I think it is really dysfunctional to be in this industry at a young age where you're figuring out who you are. I don't recommend it." (via mtv.com)
