Where'd that ring go? That's what a lot of people are kind of wondering about Selena Gomez's purity ring that she rocked years ago, and now the singer/actress is opening up all about it. That ish is long gone, folks.

During an interview with The Sunday Times, Selena said she isn't embarrassed to admit that during her relationship with Nick Jonas, she wore a ring that symbolized her decision not to have sex until she was married.

"I'm not embarrassed to say that," Selena said. "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."

Sadly, she also explained that during the time she wore it, she was made fun of. "Sometimes you have to lie to yourself to get through the criticism, and then you're in your closet crying. It has been like that for me a couple of times, but I only want to learn from those things."

In 2008 Sel spoke to Extra about her decision to wear the ring. "I said, 'Dad, I want a promise ring.' 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."

Selena noticeably took off her ring when she began dating Justin Bieber. She admitted in the same interview that she totally doesn't regret loving him...despite all the crap she went through being with him.

"I didn't think I was doing anything bad by falling in love," Selena said. "There's such an emphasis on people being the perfect thing and then destroying them because it's good press. Also throw in the fact that you are a makes it more difficult."
