It will only take a glance to conclude that Selena Gomez is one of the most beautiful celebrities in her generation. However, it seems that the singer is now fed up of hearing others call her pretty — she’d rather have people recognize her for who she truly is.

Selena Gomez recently guested on the first episode of Coach's brand-new “Dream It Real” podcast. During the segment, the singer opened up and shared her thoughts on a lot of topics that young people can easily relate to such as social media, authenticity and self-acceptance.

“I don’t really appreciate people judging me on my looks or anything like that,” Selena Gomez said. “I’m flattered when maybe guys are like, ‘You’re pretty.’ I am, but it’s just — I would just love someone to love me for the person that I am. That’s just what’s important to me, you know?”

Gomez thinks that her very early entry into the entertainment industry might have had a negative effect on her development. “I've always wanted to be me, but when I was younger I was very insecure,” the singer revealed. “I started in this industry really young and I think that you kind of create this other persona of yourself. Then when I started going through real, really difficult things it allowed me to just have worth.”

Somehow it even came to the point where all she could see in her photos are the imperfections. “Obviously my situation is different and very weird but when I was younger, I was exposed to all of this [fame],” Gomez added. “It was just all these pictures and all the things and all I would do is look at the flaws.”

Gomez also revealed that while social media is great, being too involved in it can have negative effects. “I love having a platform to communicate with people; however, I just don't think that it's healthy to spend too much time on it,” the singer said. “I noticed, with me, I got kind of depressed looking at these people who look beautiful and amazing.”

Gomez believes that young people these days are too immersed in social media for their own good. “I want to protect the youngest generation because they are exposed to so much information,” the singer explained, “and I feel like that causes a lot of anxiety at the youngest age.”
