Selena Gomez Is Red Hot At 'Rudderless' LA Premiere
Star tells press on the red carpet she hopes the flick will shift attention from her private life...
Selena Gomez sizzled on the red carpet of her new movie Rudderless in Los Angeles last night (October 7), with the star keen for the media to focus on her professional career rather than her private life.
Amid claims that her romance with on-off Justin Bieber has cooled, Associated Press asked the Slow Down singer whether she hopes projects such as Rudderless will shift the media spotlight away from her personal business.
Hinting at the press attention when it comes to her stormy relationship with JB, Sel-Go replied: "Perhaps. But it's my job. It's my job as a public figure, in general, that's being talked about in certain situations - it's to shift that into things that are quality, because, if you think about it, my generation would never, I honestly believe they would never even have heard of this movie...
"And generally, I would like them to go see things like this, like Spring Breakers, even though it's out of the box, and the music that I have coming up will be so different than anything I've done. I love what I do and I think I am different than anyone in my lane, and nobody's been able to see my heart through most of it."
She concluded: "So, this is my heart. This is my joy. This my passion. And it's my job to make sure that people see that, and that's what I love."
Rudderless - which also stars William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman - is due to release in the US on October 17, with no UK date confirmed at time of press.
