The rumor mill went wild last year when photos of Selena Gomez bathing with Cara Delevingne began circulating around the Internet, but the former Disney stars says the speculation didn't bother her—in fact, it did just the opposite!

In an interview with PrideSource, Gomez opens up about her sexuality and her relationship with the gay community, including her BFF Delevingne.

The "Good For You" singer says she really knew she made it when tabloids speculated about her having a secretly love affair with the supermodel.

"Honestly, I loved it. I didn't mind it," she says. "Especially because they weren't talking about other people in my life for once, which was wonderful."

She continues, "Honestly, though, she's incredible and very open and she just makes me open. She's so fun and she's just extremely adventurous, and sometimes I just want that in my life, so I didn't mind it. I loved it."

But has she ever questioned her sexuality?

"Oh, I think everybody does, no matter who they are," she admits. "I do, yeah, of course. Absolutely. I think it's healthy to gain a perspective on who you are deep down, question yourself and challenge yourself; it's important to do that."

Gomez even revealed that she'd pick Suki Waterhouse to play her on-screen lesbian love interest if given the opportunity!

While SelGo says she doesn't think she's ever dated a gay man in her past, she did touch on her ex-boyfriend and good friend Nick Jonas' impact on the gay community.

"He's incredible, and I think it's amazing," she gushes. "I've known him for years—we were 14 when we met—so it's crazy, because I actually knew him at a different time in his life. Now, to see him have this amazing perspective on life is awesome. I'm really proud of him."

She continues, "It was kind of incredible for somebody to step out of their zone for a minute. It's really incredible to see what he's done… He clearly has had a love and compassion for everyone, and I think that's great."
