Selena Gomez always feels nervous on the red carpet
The singer-and-actress - who is dating Justin Bieber - admits being in the spotlight doesn`t "come naturally" to her and she gets butterflies in her stomach when she attends glitzy events.
She said: "I am [a normal girl next door]. I can still walk down the street, so in that respect I`m quite lucky. But some things in my life don`t come naturally, like walking the red carpet.
"It`s pretty scary! It`s not that I`m not confident in myself, it`s just that the red carpet is not somewhere I feel totally comfortable."
Just as she isn`t happy on the red carpet, Selena also admits she finds touring tough, especially when she is on her own in hotel rooms.
She told LOOK magazine: "It`s hard, especially when I`m in a hotel room by myself, thousands of miles away from the people I love. Of course it`s difficult. I miss all the people I love, my family and my friends, when I`m away from home.
"Thank goodness for Skype, I don`t know what people did before it!"
However, the, `Tell Me Something I Don`t Know` singer realises how lucky she is to have her career and says when she`s feeling lonely, rather than mope around, she uses the time to relax and forget about work.
She said: "At those times I remind myself that I`m so lucky to be doing what I`m doing, When I feel like that I just go and run a hot bubble bath and relax."
