Selena Gomez has a good friend to turn to for relationship advice - Taylor Swift.
"We both experienced the same things at the same time," she says. "But we've never once talked about our industry. She just became the person I'd go to for an issue with my family or boyfriend," Selena told Nylon magazine, which features the actress and singer on its February 2013 cover. "It's so hard to trust girls, so I'm lucky to have her."
Selena and Justin Bieber reportedly split again just a few weeks ago, but in the interview, conducted before their latest breakup, the actress addressed her then-relationship with the Canadian pop superstar.
"I'm having fun," she told the mag of her relationship status.
Selena said she is surprised by the headlines her love life inspires, but she doesn't have a different definition of what love is, just because she's a star.
"At the end of the day, love is such a normal thing, and everyone deals with it," she said. "Just because it's a different lifestyle doesn't change the meaning of what I've been raised on, which is fairy tales."
Selena has a new movie due out this year with James Franco - "Spring Breakers" - about a group of college co-eds who rob a restaurant to pay for their trip. But while she plays a wild girl in the film, Selena admitted she had to learn a few things to play the part.
"I had to have someone show me how to hold the cigarette," she said.
