Longtime friends Selena Gomez and Ryan Seacrest recently sat down to talk about her Disney career, her struggles as a celebrity growing up in the spotlight, her brand new album and dating life.

The special aired on E! Sunday, July 21 and featured the two chatting over a game of ping pong and bean bag toss. Her new album, "Stars Dance," is due out Tuesday, July 23.

Watch portions of the video above, and read several revealing quotes from the superstar's interview below.

On Music and Acting

"Music's a lot more intimidating than the acting side of the industry, for me. I'm just kinda doing my thing and trying to make great music."

Dating in the Music and Acting Industries

"Just honesty. Egos turn me off, big time. I mean it's hard to just date in this industry. It really is. I want somebody who can make me laugh, and just be normal and understand my lifestyle and how I want to live it."

Growing Up in the Spotlight

"I don't really regret that. There were definite weekends where I could go to the beach, and have sleepovers with my friends. I had those moments, I think I had enough of them, to be honest, because I do enjoy this and I don't regret wanting to live a different lifestyle."

On Success and Family

"At the end of the day success is nothing if you don't have the right people to share it with, you're just gonna end up lonely."
