Selena Gomez credit Britney Spears as an inspiration behind her upcoming Stars Dance World Tour and last month’s Movie Awards performance, claiming that ‘I’m a Slave 4 U’ was her favorite performance of any awards show.
Following Sel’s performance, Brit tweeted, ‘Wow @SelenaGomez.. ‘Come & Get It’ on the #mtvmovieawards was incredible! One of my favorite songs out there right now! And thank you for all of the kind words about the VMA Slave performance ..you’re too sweet! Means a lot to me.’
Sel: ‘It was actually the second time that she tweeted me.. I died the first time. I didn’t believe it at first, but it was really sweet, because even with the inspirations through the outfits and the performances, she’s a huge inspiration when it comes to performing. ‘Selena said she would be ‘terrified’ to talk to Spears.
Spears released her jaw-dropping video for ‘I’m a Slave 4 U,’ shedding her good-girl image for a more sexy look, which, also at the age of 20, is exactly what Gomez is doing with ‘Come & Get It.’
Selena: ‘I think she’s one of the best that made that transition. That video [“Slave 4 U”] is so hot, it’s incredible, so I love that, and I definitely wanted to do that with my transition, but I don’t think there’s a path you have to follow. I think you just have to figure it out and hope for the best, so if it has a similarity, that’s only a compliment.’ + moar Rudderless fan pix!
