Selena Gomez is the "most popular girl in America."

At least, that's what W Magazine is touting in its March cover story featuring the teen Disney star-turned-sultry "Good For You" songstress.

For those who have followed her career, it's not hard to see why the 23-year-old actress and singer is so "liked by many." She's handled the scrutiny of growing up famous remarkably well and has had the unique privilege of transitioning her career from Disney darling with ease.

"Once Disney was over, I was like: Oh, shit. I didn't know what I wanted to be. I had to learn to be myself," she said.

It's easy to compare her path to that of Miley Cyrus', but to Gomez, any comparison where that's concerned is futile.

"Every single girl has done it completely differently," she said. "Obviously, she wouldn't want to be doing what I'm doing, and I wouldn't want to be doing what she's doing. But I'm a fan of her music—I don't know if she'd say that about me."

And despite past reports, there's absolutely no bad blood between the two stars, who, yes, like any teenagers, once "liked the same guy."

"We never feuded. We both liked the same guy when we were 16. It was just a Hilary Duff–Lindsay Lohan thing: 'Oh, my God, we like the same boy!' We are now completely settled in our own lives."

Still, it's impressive Gomez has avoided any major scandals, despite her high-profile relationship with Justin Bieber, which, by the way, is "so over."

"I'm so exhausted," she told the magazine about her former flame. "I honestly am so done. I care about his health and well-being. But I can't do it anymore."
