The 18-year-old singer/Monte Carlo actress/Justin Bieber's girlfriend covers the new issue of Billboard and discusses her career of being both an actress and singer.

“It’s obviously an important phase in my career, and personally," Selena tells Billboard. "The good news is I have been juggling acting and singing for two-and-a-half to three years. But I have to start over in some areas. It’s interesting to start taking risks, to grow up through my music.”

And she has an actor whose career she looks up to.

“Shia LaBeouf. He did it really well," she says. "He’s talented and doing wonderful things. Everybody has their own vision of how they want things to play out … Eventually I hope to make a record in Spanish. I don’t do anything that’s not organic.”

And Selena is trying to accept what comes with her celebrity.

“I have a love-hate relationship with the Internet," The Biebs' main squeeze explains. "I don’t like it in general — it’s vicious. But it’s also incredibly that I can connect with fans, because I love to hear their feedback and let them know about my life.”
