THIS Is Why Selena Has Been So Open About Her Relationship with The Weeknd

Makes sense, Sel

Selena Gomez has been through a lot in the romance department, mostly with a certain mega-famous, Canadian pop star (*cough* Bieber *cough*). But even after all the public drama of her past relationships, she’s not afraid to open up and be completely honest about her new love with The Weeknd.

In a new interview with Ryan Seacrest, Sel opened up about, well, her decision to open up.

“I don’t feel like there’s anything that I would want to…hide. I’m genuinely myself,” she explained. “It’s really hard when I would want to spend so much time hiding things. It’s too much pressure, and I think everyone gets over everything eventually. I just want to be happy. If that’s me just being myself, then I don’t really care.”

That’s totally, completely fair. And just in case you’re wondering if she was being a little dodgy because she didn’t explicitly say her boyfriend’s name, Ryan cleared that up too.

“She’s talking about The Weeknd,” he said. Selena didn’t agree—”Abel,” she corrected him, because that’s The Weeknd’s actual name and obviously what those close to him (like, for instance, his girlfriend) call him.
