Selena Gomez is stepping into her power and taking control.
The 23-year-old singer has moved on from her split from Justin Bieber, and from the sound of it, she plans to remain happily single for a while as she focuses on herself and her career.
In a new interview, Gomez talks about gay fans and friends, including out model/actress Cara Delevingne. When asked how she felt about lesbian rumours that were sparked by her hanging out with Cara, she joked,
I’ve made it! … Honestly, I loved it. I didn’t mind it. Especially because they weren’t talking about other people in my life for once, which was wonderful. Honestly, though, she’s incredible and very open and she just makes me open. She’s so fun and she’s just extremely adventurous, and sometimes I just want that in my life, so I didn’t mind it. I loved it.”
As to if she’s ever questioned her sexuality, Gomez said,
Oh, I think everybody does, no matter who they are. I do, yeah, of course. Absolutely. I think it’s healthy to gain a perspective on who you are deep down, question yourself and challenge yourself; it’s important to do that.”
Selena also said she has a “long list” of women she’d choose to play her on-screen love interest, but does note she’d choose definitely pick model Suki Waterhouse.
On thing we love is realism. Not everyone is chipper in the morning. In fact the morning after night before is the worst feeling ever.
Enter bisexual model-turned-actor, Cara Delevingne and her latest interview with Good Day Sacramento TV’s trio – Marianne McClary, Ken Rudulph and Mark S Allen.
Cara appeared on the early morning show after the New York premiere of Paper Towns – the movie adaptation of the John Green novel – and found her interview cut short because of her tone.
The interview didn’t get off to a great start when the programme’s anchor appeared to call her ‘Carla’ – pretty dumb move seeing she is arguably one of the most recognisable faces and names in the entertainment industry today.
The next few minutes when they tried to get a bit of information out of the blonde beauty were fairly painful.
When asked if she’d read the novel or if she could possibly squeeze it into her hectic schedule, Cara tried to smack on a fake smile but the sarcasm was clear as day.
Uh, no I never read the book, or the script. I kind of winged it.”
The comment fell on deaf ears. I guess, it turns out there are still some big differences between British and American humour.
So she informs them in very deadpan voice that John Green was one of her favourite novelists.
She is then accused of not being “excited” about promoting the film, before she’s advised to “take a nap or have a Red Bull”.
The when anchor Marianne McClary asked her if she was irritated or if it was the fault of the show, Delevingne replied, ‘No, I think it’s just you.
However, while the interview carried a positive message overall, it contained the line:
Her parents seem to think girls are just a phase for Cara, and they may be correct.”
In response, an online petition was set up, calling for the magazine to apologise. The petition received than 20,000 signatures.
Cara as now also weighed in on the comments.
Speaking to the New York Times, Cara– who is currently dating musician St Vincent – said:
My sexuality is not a phase. I am who I am.”
However, she also added that while she was flattered by the show of support online, she was sure the article was “nothing malicious”.
On learning to block out her life’s distractions, she said:
Being in love helps, you know? If you’re in love with someone, you can be with them like no one else is in the room. Acting is like that. It’s like taking that feeling and turning it on so nothing else matters when you’re looking in another actor’s face.”
Delevingne recently called out Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott for opposing same-sex marriage – at the Australian première of Paper Towns.
Tony Abbott, you better listen to the rest of the world and carry on. Go with it.”
Cara Delevingne has been talking in Australia about how happy she is that it’s becoming more accepted across the world to speak about sexuality.
The bisexual model-turned-actress – who is in a relationship with singer St Vincent – told Daily Mail Australia that she was pleased to see that strides that were being made in terms of equality.
Speaking at the Sydney premiere for her new film Paper Towns, she said:
I think everyone has a right to be whoever they want to be, so I’m just very happy. I think it’s wonderful that you know, it’s being accepted more and more… I’ve been pretty open about myself from the beginning.”
Ireland recently voted yes in a same-sex marriage referendum and the US introduced same-sex marriage too, but Cara encouraged Australia’s prime minister to follow suit.
Talking to the Mail at the Australian première of her latest film Paper Towns, Cara Delevingne, has called out the politician.
Tony Abbott, you better listen to the rest of the world and carry on. Go with it. I’ve been pretty open about myself from the beginning. I think it’s wonderful that you know, it’s being accepted more and more. And I think everyone has a right to be whoever they want to be. So I’m just very happy.”
Australian Prime Minster Tony Abbott is a staunch opponent of equal marriage, but is facing pressure to allow his MPs a free vote on a cross-party marriage bill, following progress in Ireland and the United States.
Delevingne, who is in a same-sex relationship with musician St Vincent, spoke about her new relationship and sexual preference in a recent interview with Vogue.
It took me a long time to accept the idea, until I first fell in love with a girl at 20 and recognized that I had to accept it. I think that being in love with my girlfriend is a big part of why I’m feeling so happy with who I am these days. And for those words to come out of my mouth is actually a miracle.”
As a bisexual woman myself, I’ve experienced hurtful comments like this many times. People are quick to assume queer women’s identities are a ‘phase’ and to refuse to recognise the important relationships in their lives — an attitude which can cause depression, result in families rejecting their daughters and even put young women at risk of suicide.
Vogue should have taken this opportunity to combat negative stereotypes, not reinforce them. We should be applauding Cara for coming out as queer, and being open about her relationships with men and women.”
Delevingne is considered the ‘it’ girl of our time. She appears in ad campaigns, music videos, and movies. The tabloid’s love her, we love her and fans love her. And the fact that she’s in a relationship with a woman and proud is great.
Cara Delevingne is the ‘it’ girl of our time. She appears in ad campaigns, music videos, and movies. The tabloid’s love her, we love her and fans love her. And the fact that she’s in a relationship with a woman and proud of it has been the least focused-on part of her career thus far.
In the July issue of Vogue, the 22-year-old speaks candidly about her sexuality and how she’s in lover with her girlfriend St Vincent (aka Annie Clark).
I think that being in love with my girlfriend is a big part of why I’m feeling so happy with who I am these days. And for those words to come out of my mouth is actually a miracle.”
We couldn’t be happier for her, especially considering the long road, which led to this moment in her life.
When first coming to terms with her sexuality, she revealed:
It took me a long time to accept the idea, until I first fell in love with a girl at 20 and recognized that I had to accept it. But I have erotic dreams only about men. I had one two nights ago where I went up to a guy in the back of a VW minivan, with a bunch of his friends around him, and pretty much jumped him … The thing is, if I ever found a guy I could fall in love with, I’d want to marry him and have his children. And that scares me to death because I think I’m a whole bunch of crazy, and I always worry that a guy will walk away once he really, truly knows me.”
Cara doesn’t just open up about her love life though, as she also confesses about issues with partying, modelling, and struggle with depression.
On the difference between modeling and acting:
The thrill of acting is making a character real. Modeling is the opposite of real. It’s being fake in front of the camera.”
On wanting to leave the modeling world:
I’m not sure I understand what fashion is anymore. I admit I was terrified to leave. I mean, the bubble gives you a kind of dysfunctional family. When you’re in it, you get it. And the second you’re out of it, you’re like, What the hell just happened?”
On her mom’s struggle with heroine addiction:
It shapes the childhood of every kid whose parent has an addiction. You grow up too quickly because you’re parenting your parents. My mother’s an amazingly strong person with a huge heart, and I adore her. But it’s not something you get better from, I don’t think. I know there are people who have stopped and are fine now, but not in my circumstance. She’s still struggling.”
On suffering from depression as a teen:
This is something I haven’t been open about, but it’s a huge part of who I am. All of a sudden I was hit with a massive wave of depression and anxiety and self-hatred, where the feelings were so painful that I would slam my head against a tree to try to knock myself out. I never cut, but I’d scratch myself to the point of bleeding. I just wanted to dematerialize and have someone sweep me away.”
And she continued, sharing:
I smoked a lot of pot as a teenager, but I was completely mental with or without drugs. I thought that if I wanted to act, I’d need to finish school, but I got so I couldn’t wake up in the morning. The worst thing was that I knew I was a lucky girl, and the fact that you would rather be dead . . . you just feel so guilty for those feelings, and it’s this vicious circle. Like, how dare I feel that way? So you just attack yourself some more.”
Which lead to her low point. Cara explained:
Full-on bubble. I was packing my bags, and suddenly I just wanted to end it. I had a way, and it was right there in front of me. And I was like, I need to decide whether I love myself as much as I love the idea of death.” And then a song started playing on her laptop, Outkast’s SpottieOttieDopaliscious, which had been played at the funeral of a friend who had recently died of a heroin overdose. “It felt like a warning from him. And it made me so furious with myself.”
No one can ever say she’s had it easy. She’s gone through so much, but at least has the support of so many good friends.
Fans of the couple – who’ve been dating since earlier this year – went crazy, begging the pair to tell them if the rumours were true.
Neither Cara or Annie have commented on the speculation.
However, upon further analysis, it appears that the writing could indeed be Cara’s. Here’s a survey she filled out and that someone uploaded to Pinterest. We’re no professional handwriting analysts, but the similarities are not non-existent. There’s also zero reason to think that just because the handwriting is Cara’s that they’re definitely getting married, especially with THAT caption.
But, before we all go rushing out to buy our wedding hats (because we’d totally be invited) it’s worth remembering that ‘Marry Me’ is also the title to St Vincent’s debut album and we may just be getting ahead of ourselves here.
It’s easy to be all cozy and coupled up in the winter, but now that spring fever has set in, many couples in Hollywood are finding it a lot harder to stay oh so in love.
Rumours have been flying the past few weeks that Cara Delevingne fling with rocker St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) is on the rocks.
The model and now actress took to Twitter to curb the rumours – tweeting that she’s “very much in love.”
But sources at Star are telling usa verrrrrry different story…
The relationship is a constant roller coaster that’s more of a partying partnership than a love affair. It’s always the same story with Cara–her romances are hot and sexual, then turn into a slippery slope of too much partying that leads to nonstop fighting.”
Hmmm… We had always assumed that dating the ever-in-demand Delevingne was pretty much like this. She doesn’t exactly seem the type to stay home baking pies and giving foot rubs.
Its not often we get to discuss black celesbian couples? There are exactly two that we know of: Monifah and her wife Terese who were married in the last season on R&B Divas. Then there is Brittney Griner and her fiance Glory Johnson.
However, according to MediaTtakeOut.com (the self-proclaimed black TMZ) is reporting that Grammy nominee, Janelle Monae and veteran femcee, MC Lyte are an item.
According to their source the alleged love birds’ romance began earlier this month when they hit it off at the BET’s Black Girls Rock show.
In April Monae faced claims on Twitter that she’s gay, and in response to her fans, she hinted on the social media site that she
was not for “male consumption.” But turns out Monae is “seriously dating” Lyte.
Both women have always been candied about their sexual preference, with Monae saying
You know what, I keep my personal life to myself. I think one of the things about that is that I want everyone to focus on my music and also I don’t want to let anybody down. I want women to still be attracted to me – go get my album! And I want men to still be attracted to me so I have to be political in this. I can’t really tell y’all.”
MC Lyte – who is considered one of the first ladies of hip hop – has never publicly confirmed longstanding rumours about her sexuality, when asked about the possibility of hip-hop embracing openly gay rappers she answered,
I will never say never. Kudos is such a corny word but Kudos to [Frank Ocean and Michael Sam] or being able to live their lives out loud. If that’s what they needed to do in order to feel free, so be it.”
Do you think they’d make a cute couple? Sound off in the comments below!
Cara Delevingne is usually associated with prominent eyebrows, goofy facial expressions and brazen nudity from many of her photo shoots.
She is also linked to a string of famous romances with a wide array of music and film stars including Fast and the Furious actor Michelle Rodriguez, and now an on-again, off-again romance with 32-year-old American singer songwriter St Vincent.
In the past, Cara normally stays pretty coy on the subject but in a new interview with website News.com.au she has revealed that when dating she fancies herself as a “bit of a predator.”
I’m someone who loves to chase; I’m a bit of a predator but not in a weird way. But I do love a chase and I also love to be chased. It depends on how your chemistry works.”
It was first reported that Cara and musician St.Vincent, were together after they were spotted together at a BRIT Awards party in February, although it is thought that they had started dating in secret long before that. More recently the pair attended the star-studded Burberry party in LA together spending the entire evening at each other’s sides.
Recently the model is refuting claims she and St Vincent (whose real name is Anne ‘Annie’ Clark) have split stating “I am very much in love” she stated on Twitter.
As well as opening up about her love life, Cara also talked about her very successful career. Despite being one of the most high-profile models in the world, she revealed that she never saw herself on the catwalk.
I never thought I’d be a model. I never wanted to be a model and I never thought people would actually want me to be a model. I was a feral kid, a big tomboy. Beauty wasn’t important at all and it still isn’t in a way.”
Though she’s been modelling professionally since the age of ten and currently holds the prestigious title as brand ambassador of Burberry, Yves Saint Laurent Beaute, and TAG Heuer, the 22-year-old star remains uncomfortable looking at these larger-than-life images.
Cara also revealed that she is a huge yoga fan, crediting the practise with helping her beat some of her demons. Admitting that she feels she had made a lot of mistakes in her life the model said:
Yoga saved my life, as did meditation. Before I found yoga I didn’t know how to be by myself or how to say no to people. I was very much a people pleaser. I never actually knew what I wanted in life until I discovered yoga and the importance of taking time for oneself. It really taught me how to connect to myself emotionally and how to love myself.”
Cara Delevingne was thought to have been happily loved-up with her girlfriend, St. Vincent, but she has caused worry among her fans on social media, thanks to a series of cryptic and heartbreak-related posts shared over the past few days.
A photo posted by Cara Delevingne (@caradelevingne) on
The pair – who are thought to have been dating since December – attended the Burberry London In Los Angeles event together, where they rubbed shoulders with the likes of the Beckhams, Naomi Campbell and Mila Kunis.
The couple were seen jetting out of Los Angeles International Airport together, looking as happy as ever while Cara wore a coat belonging to St. Vincent, whose real name is Anne ‘Annie’ Clark.
But the British model’s latest posts on Instagram have sparked concern among her fans. On Monday, the beauty shared a very sad picture of a crying stick figure drawing holding a broken heart, along with the words ‘it’s hurting again’. This was followed by a quote from the poet Rumi, that gave more than a hint at her potential love life situation.
Her cryptic posts caused her millions of fans to respond in their droves, offering her support and wishing her well, with some event acknowledging that she had perhaps ended her relationship with the Grammy winning singer.
Yahoo then reported that Delevingne had real, heartfelt emotions for Annie Clark and that she had been truly gutted to have dumped her.
But with all social media romances true love wins through, and Delevingne posted to her twitter account confirmation of her love.
Is this some sort of a lesbian dream come true? A lesbian story that features Cara Delevingne, St Vincent, Michelle Rodriguez and Carrie Brownstein. Wow – the glamour, the Hollywood, the cool and the grunge.
Its been heavily reported this week, that Cara Delevingne, famous model and occasional drunk person, who used to date actress and hell raiser Michelle Rodriguez; is rumoured to be dating Grammy Award-winning musician Annie Clark, who performs as St. Vincent and used to date (the one and only) Carrie Brownstein (Sleater-Kinney, Portlandia).
Phew – and just when we thought all was lost Ms Delevingne, who was rumoured to be running back to the boys.
The two have also been seen hanging out at the Paramount Hotel in New York recently where, according to reports, “[they] snuck off to the bathroom during dinner and slow-danced at the end of the show. At one point they shared a chair and were hugging and kissing.”
Cara Delevingne is spokesperson for National Coming Out Day in the UK and her message was, ‘doesn’t matter who you are or what you believe it, we are one’.
Around the time world learned that things were ‘officially’ over between Keyshia Cole and Daniel “Boobie” Gibson, the singer released a telling track titled ‘She’, which hinted of a lesbian love affair. The internet went crazy, with many began to wonder whether or not the track was also hinting that Cole has been seeing women since her split.
However, that this is not the case. Instead, Cole says that for her – ‘She’ is actually about her personal journey to becoming familiar with her own body following her separation from Daniel.
In a recent interview with WGCI radio, Cole said…
“I had to get familiar with myself so I think that song is really, in essence of what that song ‘She’ is about. It’s getting to know yourself. I know people think it’s about girl-on-girl action, which it was at first, and then I kinda switched the lyrics around a little bit.”
Speaking of her separation, she said preparing to go through a divorce has altered her perspective on love and relationships, and that the next time around will place a higher value on being a man’s friend first.
“It’s no way of getting around not knowing if somebody is ready or not. That’s the whole thing about friendship. Whoever I end up with, I’ve been praying that he’s my friend first. If you think about being friends, you’re not going to go and get them hit up. You not gone put them in a situation where you gone get them shot.
You ain’t gone put me in a situation where you make another woman think she got something over me. If we friends and you really love me like you say you do, it’s certain things you’re not going to do out of respect.”
As for what she has been doing to get through the difficult split, Keyshia says she has been directing her energies towards becoming more physically fit.
“Gym, yeah. Just trying to eat better. I did a fast for about 4-5 days…just juicing. I actually loved it. I go in the steam room before I work out for about 10-15 minutes then go work out for about 2 -3 hours then go pick up my son from school and get back to my motherly duties. Right now, working. Trying to stay focused.”
