Young teen crooner Selena Gomez recently opened up to Seventeen magazine about her relationship with fellow teen sensation Justin Bieber.

Gomez has been dealing with the backlash from the Biebster’s immensely loyal fan base, which is largely comprised of young,  overly hormonal driven little girls. But Gomez, 18, demonstrated grace and class when speaking about Justin and the annoying teeny boppers who love him!

Acknowledging the fact that she has been private about her past relationships, Gomez says,

“I don’t like hiding. I do like to keep certain things to myself, but at the end of the day, I’m 18, and I’m going to fall in love. I’m going to hang out with people, and I’m going to explore myself, and I’m okay with that.”

Gomez also addressed the “unconditional love”  that Bieber fans have for her boo, saying,

“I do see the passion that a lot of these girls have, and it’s beautiful. I love it. I really do. It’s special.”

Gomez also joked that the couple’s coordinated Oscar party attire — she in a red gown, he sporting red accessories — made the event feel like “our prom.”

Hmmm — – wonder if he got some after-prom nookie??
