Selena Gomez‘s music video for ‘Come & Get It’ was quite revealing, but is she willing to be just as revealing in her new music? Selena told MTV: ‘With everything that I’ve been through, I wanted to exude confidence, because I’m only 20, I’ll be 21 this year, so I’m still figuring out what on earth I am or what I’m doing. So for me, I wanted to make sure that’s what my music said.’
Song she relates to the most on the album: ”Slow Down’ is one of my favorite tracks on the record. It’s basically just about having this moment and not having to rush it, because I don’t know how many times I’ve been like, ‘I just want to be married and over this,’ but this is what we’re supposed to be enjoying. So that’s really more of what I wanted the album to be about, because I think, through people’s opinions and everything that happens, they’re expecting something else, but I just want it to exude confidence and strength.
With anything that I do, I feel like people assume that I say something that they get or they know, at the end of the day, it’s super private to me,” she said. “It’s definitely important for me to keep that, but there is one song on the album I wanted to share a little bit more than I’ve ever shared before. It’s a really pretty song. It is the only ballad, but the rest of the time, I like keeping a little mystery, because whether I tell you everything you want to know right now, they are still going to twist it and turn it into something else.
Half the time I’m too honest onstage when I’m performing. I’m like, ‘I wanted to tell you guys ..’and my team is like, ‘No!’ But as an artist, whether it’s acting, performing, singing, writing, you want to share that, because that’s where you want the outlet to go. You want to have people understand you a little, but better, but in your own interpretation.’
Selena is planning a massive birthday bash to celebrate her 21st birthday: ‘I’m gonna have a huge party, so I’m excited. I think my friends are more excited than I am, to be honest. Because they’re older than me, so they’re like, ‘We can finally take you places!”
