Good for You
singer Selena Gomez recently opened up to the UK’s Sunday Times
about her decision to stop wearing a purity ring. She says she started wearing it when she was just 13.
“I said, ‘Dad, I want a promise ring,'” she said in the candid interview. “He went to the church and got it blessed. He actually used me as an example for other kids. I’m going to keep my promise to myself, to my family and to God.”
However a few years later she realized it wasn’t the right thing for her.
“I’m also not embarrassed to say that the ring has come off. I got it when I was 13 and I respect so much what it represented, but it isn’t for everyone.”
We’re proud of Selena for being so open about her decision. You have every right to renege on something you decided at just 13. If not I’d still be wearing bell bottoms and blue eye shadow.
But Gomez isn’t the only celeb to have thrown out her purity ring. You might be surprised by who else used to wear one!
