But the real reason you feel connected to this 17-year-old is because her everyday life pretty much looks like yours: the inseparable friendships, the guy drama, the getting yelled at by her parents for buying an expensive jacket at the mall (a 0 leather jacket from Zara that — sorry, Mom — she has yet to wear). I'm truly grateful to be hurt as many times as I have, because I'm happy!Watching her grow up on camera has made it hard to separate "real Selena" from "TV Selena." The TV version whom you see on Wizards of Waverly Place is full of sweet enthusiasm that could work only on the Disney Channel. 17: Do you have a friend you go to for love advice?
SG: I broke up with someone once, but I've been broken up with twice.17: How did that feel? I try to not really say anything, and it kind of works itself out. Eventually you sort of realize your friends are the only ones you really have — so why are we doing this? Most of them are musicians, and I think music takes them to a whole new level.
SG: It was the most horrible feeling in the entire world. And I guess you have to go through that, but it's so hard. 17: You have a lot of famous friends — Demi Lovato, Taylor, Miley. For me, I'm going to try out music, but it will be more fun than anything else.
