Selena Gomez has revealed she turned to Katy Perry for dating advice.
The Come And Get It singer - who previously had a long on-off romance with Justin Bieber - admitted she went to Katy for tips on finding a man who wouldn't be intimidated by her strength.
Selena, 21, told Seventeen magazine: "I actually talked to Katy Perry about guys who are intimidated by strong girls.
"I haven't found someone yet who could understand my lifestyle, support it, love me through it, and not be threatened by it. It's hard. I do think I might scare some guys, because I'm like, 'I want to change the world! I have dreams! What do you want to do?' But I only know how to be me."
The former Wizards Of Waverly Place actress, who finally split from Justin in 2013, also revealed that she feels she has come into her own in the past year.
She explained: "This year is when I really started feeling powerful. I had always been the underdog secretly. I was on Disney when it was Miley [Cyrus], the Jonas Brothers, and Demi [Lovato].
"I questioned the way I looked, acted, sang, and wrote. Then I turned 20, went through a really bad break-up, and realised I needed to have Come And Get It be amazing.
"I wanted it all to be me. I'm glad it's taken me this long to get where I am because now I am ready for it."
