"I'm sure there might be bitterness, but I was just doing my job. She posted a picture on Instagram that said, 'I thought he only liked the Latina category. Smh... #nomakeup #hatewhengirlssaythat.' It was clearly directed at him with me in the video, but like I said I was just doing my job. I think it's ridiculous [to compare me to her]. Selena is a superstar and I'm just a girl in a video. She's his ex and I'm sure they still have feelings for each other."
On locking lips with Justin:
"Kissing him was nice — I got butterflies and I do still to this day. After the shoot wrapped it felt so surreal, I even got a speeding ticket after the shoot because I was on such a high. I guess you could say I wouldn't mind doing it again."
On dealing with the haters:
"I've gotten several death threats, none like, 'I'm going to find you and kill you,' but I've received ones that say, 'Die,' and 'Kill yourself' — people seriously have no boundaries with social media, I was just doing my job. But there are lot of people defending me, too, which is nice. I've definitely gained some fans from this all."
On doing improv for the video:
"I think it was 50-50. There is a scene with an ice cube and I didn't know what to do with it. The director kept telling me to love that ice cube, so I really had to think about how I would be really loving this ice cube. So, I thought about sexy time, ya know? But it was freezing on set, so it was a weird thing to do. All of the lights were red though, which helped set the mood, so I was able to get into it."
