Following her high-profile split with Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez has predominantly honed in on her music career, pushing personal relationships to the back burner. While the superstar singer isn't currently in search of anything serious, she hasn't ruled out the idea of finding a lifelong partner in the future.

In a recent and deeply candid interview, Gomez delved into the challenges she perceives men face in deciphering her relationship prerequisites, highlighting a common misunderstanding prevalent among the opposite sex. As of now, she's embracing her single status, a sentiment echoed in her newest chart-topping single, "Single Soon."

Selena Discusses Song Insights

While promoting her hit, Selena paid a visit to the SiriusXM Hits 1 LA radio station where she engaged in a heart-to-heart with hosts Tony Fly and Symon.

The conversation naturally steered towards the lyrical content of her new song, where she elucidates her relationship criteria. "There seems to be a misconception," Selena remarked. "Men these days tend to equate my quality standards with being too demanding or picky.

I find it amusing." She then pointed out a specific lyric from the song that resonates deeply with her personal feelings. "There's this one verse," she chuckled, "where I confidently state, 'If you're keen on being with me, these are my terms: X, Y, Z.'

I'm unapologetic about it." When pressed on her ideal partner's attributes, Gomez's desires are surprisingly down-to-earth. She wishes for someone "cool", clarifying, "Not in the trendy sense, but a genuinely good person.

Someone who can make me laugh is essential. And naturally, he must treat my family and close friends with kindness and respect." In the wider context of relationships, the pop icon reflected on the universal longing many feel for companionship.

"There's a phase we all navigate where we yearn for a significant other," Selena mused. "I'm familiar with that sentiment, but my current focus is self-contentment. I yearn for a relationship that complements my growth, rather than reverting to past insecurities." The interview was not just insightful for fans but showcased a mature, self-assured artist who's learning to harmonize her personal and professional life.
