Selena Gomez and her best friend Petra Collins sat down with Dazed for a lengthy interview about the horror movie roots of Selena’s new “Fetish” video. During the chatty Q&A with the star and her director, the friendship between the two was palpable. It looks Petra has quickly become Selena’s go-to gal pal for art, friendship and more.
“We’ve come a long way from that day on set for ‘Wonderland,'” Selena says, explaining how the creative duo met in the first place. She then underscored how close they are now: “People don’t know but my personal life ties into the work we do together because you know things about my life that nobody knows and I know a lot about your life that nobody knows. It comes out, somehow.”
Selena went on to share a story about when Petra came over to her house to discuss their work on her new music. Apparently, that was when they discovered their mutual love for horror movies, because Petra “came over in the middle of the day and found me in my living room sitting on a big teddy bear watching ‘Chucky’ so casually.”
“Oh my God!” Petra remembers. “Literally we were lying on a teddy bear watching ‘Chucky.'” Petra explained that’s how she knew she and Selena were on “the same wavelength.”
