How Young is Too Young for a Cosmo Cover?

Just as the shock from 17-yr-old Dakota Fanning's beyond disturbing January cover of Cosmo begins to fade, March brings an equally off-putting issue featuring the angel-faced Selena Gomez.
Although she's a few months away from hitting the big 2-0, it's hard to feel anything but creepy holding a copy with "50 Sex Tips," "Your Orgasm Guaranteed," and "Why Guys Love it When You Bite Your Lip," emblazoned across the still teen-aged, former Disney starlet.
Cover discomfort aside, the interview within gives us teen-obsessed adults what we really want: an update on Selena and the Biebs relationship, which after a year still retains its sugar-sweet adorableness. In it, Gomez talks of her love for her mega-star beau, telling the mag she's "just like every 19-year-old girl. If you're in love, you're in love to the fullest, and you just want to go to the movies, hang out, and be as normal as possible. I'm fortunate that I've found someone who has that philosophy."
Selena also goes on to address a not-so great relationship of her past, choosing to leave readers speculating at the identity of her mystery boy. "I was in a relationship previously where I had to hide everything and it wasn't my choice," said Gomez. "I had to go through different exits and take separate cars and do the craziest things, and it just really wasn't worth it. It was like a year of my life completely wasted."
You can pick up the March issue of Cosmo when it hits newsstands February 7.
