Selena Gomez arriving home wearing black leather leggings and black shirt in LA. PacificCoastNews. Selena cuts off interview after Bieber question. She. told Yahoo! Canada:

‘My process for this record was I would call the writers myself and talk to them individually and explain to them about where I was in my life and what I wanted to perform and what I wanted to sing. I wrote all of the bonus tracks [that appear] on some of the records.’

On keeping private life private: ‘It’s hard, obviously, it’s tricky. love everything that I go through, even the bad. It’s experience [and] it makes me grow up. It makes me who I am. I try to [put] all of the attention on the good things, that’s just what I try to do best. Even with the ballad, it’s still beautiful, it’s still well said and it’s not really too much in detail. It’s just a nice way of being able to say, ‘This is where I am, let’s just have fun and enjoy it.’’

I think I’ve played every single one of my records for Taylor. She would pick out her favourite for sure and you could tell, she’d be like, ‘Oh that’s okay,’ or, ‘Oh my gosh, I love it!’ and she’d start dancing and freak out.’ Same with Demi. She’s been telling me all the time about all of the songs. She’ll text me and she’s been really supportive and very sweet. I love that; I think it’s great. We’re friends so obviously [they’re honest and] in a way they would say, ‘Well, the other one was better.’’

I think that’s why Demi, Taylor and myself are close. That’s the unfortunate thing about music, is that it tends to be too competitive. I love everyone’s music. I love Katy Perry’s music, Rihanna’s music and Demi’s music. I feel like girls in general should just support each other. Girls should be girls and we all just want to be there for each other. That’s never ever been an issue for me, Taylor or Demi.’

Especially when I’m on my own tour, when I’m with my fans I feel like I can be myself. Acting, you have to go into somebody else’s life, step into somebody else’s shoes, take on their problems, take on their conflicts and that’s sometimes difficult to do and to capture and do it elegantly and make sure it’s good.’

Demi: ‘I’m so excited for Selena, I’m so excited for Miley.. I get competitive as much as I love them. I do get competitive so I have to focus on myself and just be like it doesn’t matter who has what, we are all equally successful, and in our lives it’s a huge blessing. I’m so proud of everyone.’

Hollywood Records made video for Selena uner. + EXTRA TV.

Full review HERE! This year has been a coming-out party of sorts for Selena Gomez. Like Britney and Christina before her, she’s undergone a tightly controlled transformation from teen star to decidedly more mature performer. On the heels of her starring role in Harmony Korine’s racy Spring Breakers, Gomez’s rebranding continues with her new album, Stars Dance.

Judged purely on its attempt to market the singer to a slightly older audience than her Disney Channel tween base, the album can be qualified as a success, as it boasts a harsher, edgier sound than that of her previous efforts; on every other front, it’s a lazy, bloated, and occasionally offensive album that lacks any remnant of personality or creativity.

    the album can be qualified as a success, as it boasts a harsher, edgier sound than that of her previous efforts; on every other front, it’s a lazy, bloated, and occasionally offensive album that lacks any remnant of personality or creativity.

    I’ll have to agree with that.

  • ThatCat

    Selena seems like a really smart person :D
    also…
    Demi: it doesn’t matter who has what, we are all equally successful.

    I think she’s aiming that at Taylor, she has Grammys & shes more successful than the Disney trio (and the JoBros) – Demi sounds jelly c:

    Demi is really underrated, I can’t believe she is so underrated. She has the best voice out of all of them, Taylor is SO overrated her writing skills might be nice but all her songs are childish and sound same, pretty much all about the same thing. Her vocals are weak, nothing special, some live performances of her were so out of tune and bad I couldn’t believe it’s her voice. And she has Grammy’s for what ? Idk, I kinda think those are for people like Adele,Mariah Carey,Beyonce ya know :D She is so not supposed to be put in the same category, she doesn’t dance at all and is not a good performer but she does put somehow a good show. Demi deserves more credit for her music tho :S

  • HoneyB

    Well gotta admit her album before was nice, not the best but nice! On the other hand this is just horrible, obviously she has no idea about her music because she can‘t even pick the songs right smh

  • mouse

    She spent 6 months on her album, if this is her most hardest working album I can’t pretend to be impressed. She’s smart though (or her team is) for releasing an album with not much of any competition.

  • BowDown_Bitches

    I agree. Demi has so much potential and talent. She has an amazing voice and actually has songs worth listening to. Taylor…I’ve never understood the hype surrounding her and I honestly don’t know why she has the Grammy awards that she has. Like, I understand that she may be deemed a good song-writer (I mean, I know artists that are better than her) but she’s not that great, singing-wise. And I hardly ever hear people, other than her fans, talk about her song lyrics or music. They’re always guessing about where/who the inspiration for a song comes from; or their talking about her tired, past relationships.

  • HoneyB

    Couldn’t agree more, her lyrics are so medicore to me, she is sure not that good at all, Mariah Carey’s lyrics have fucking meaning, so much soul in them and she learned me so many words I didn’t even know from her music ( I’m kinda stuck in her 90’s music :P ) Also Eminem is of course God of the lyrics and many others are great song writers she is so overrated, her voice nothing special, she is better than Selena a bit and has better control. Not as good performer she can’t dance, at least Selena is ‘trying’ to dance.I couldn’t believe she has Grammy’s and 7 ? Mariah Carey has only 5 and she is a fucking legend, her songs are just… Taylor’s all so childish and sound the same, I loved Love Story and couple more but after that no big deal at all. She is over hyped because of the break ups and publicity she gets for it. Real artists don’t need that ;) Demi sure doesn’t, she has better music and voice, I pray to God someone will sign her to better record label like Island Records or SONY and promote her better she is above HR :)

    omg how the fuck is that the hardest she worked on an album?
