Selena Gomez told WWD: ‘I’m enjoying doing things that allow me to stretch my abilities. I want to continue in that direction.’ On Spring Breakers: ‘It was a very different type of role for me. I play a religious girl named Faith. Her best friends aren’t the best influences, and want to go to spring break but can’t afford it. So they rob a convenience store and get away with it, and go on spring break. We end up getting busted by the cops and going to jail, and James Franco’s character, a rapper-drug dealer, bails us out.’
She starts shooting ‘The Getaway’ this month co-starring Ethan Hawke: ‘We’re being chased in a car the entire movie. [As the plot goes] he stole my car, and I got in the car because I wanted it back, and I end up in the midst of all of this drama. His wife is being kidnapped by this person that’s following him.’
Her debut fragrance will be launched exclusively at Macy’s and macys.com in mid-May. The scent has top notes of orange, pineapple, peach and raspberry; a heart of purple freesia, Cosmone musk and dewberry, and a drydown of amber, vanilla, chocolate and coconut. Eaux de parfum in two sizes, 1.7 oz. for $45 and 3.4 oz. for $55, will be sold.
‘I knew I wanted a tall bottle, because I feel like it can kind of stand up with all the other fragrances.’ Selena’s fragrance licensee, ID Perfumes declined to comment on projected sales, industry sources estimated that the scent could do upward of $10 million at retail in the U.S. in its first year. Selena said she hopes this scent is the first in a series. Her scent brand will evolve as she does: ‘Each will represent me as I am at that time. It’s kind of me winging it. I definitely like to wing things.’
