Selena Gomez Admits She Couldn’t Make The Music She Wanted

Selena Gomez iHeartRadioSelena Gomez is happy to be with new record label, Interscope Records, because now she can finally make the music she wasn’t allowed to make while signed to Hollywood Records.

“Good For You” featuring A$AP Rocky, is Selena’s first single for Interscope. The song reached No. 1 on iTunes in its first full day of release, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Digital Songs Chart and is now number 9 on Billboards Hot 100.

“On my previous albums I’ve attempted, and they’re like, ‘Aw, next album,’ or ‘Aw, you’re too young.’ And it’s fine. Obviously, it is kind of scary coming into my territory with my fan base, but for this record I’ve really kind of taken everything into consideration. I am becoming an adult, which is important,” she said.

Demi Lovato’s Cool For The Summer Debuts No. 1 On iTunes

Ok, for those scoring the most recent Demi versus Selena competition – this time for best performing song release of the week – we have to give Demi a slight edge.  “Cool For The Summer” debuted at number 1 on iTunes today. The pop track is definitely not PG and hints at some bi-curious adventures Lovato may have participated in, or at least fantasized about.  

By comparison, Selena Gomez’s single, “Good for You,” did not debut at number 1 on iTunes, but did reach number 1 on its first full day of release.

“Cool for The Summer” was leaked on Tuesday, but was officially released today and will be included on Lovato’s fifth untitled album.

One thing that we are curious about — will this song, or Selena’s, have any staying power on the charts?

Selena Gomez featuring Ed Sheeran? Source Says Ed Sheeran Is Exploring Collaboration with Selena Gomez

Ed SheeranThere’s been recent speculation about the nature of the relationship between Ed Sheeran and Selena Gomez – at least since the two were spotted avoiding Justin Bieber and leaving a Tori Kelly album release party together last week. Well, a source for Hollywoodlife indicates that while the two are friends, Ed’s interests are artistic, and that he is seriously pursuing a professional collaboration with Selena.

“Ed and Selena have been hanging out a lot together, but there’s nothing going on there,” commented the source, “They just want to get to know each other better because they’re considering working with one another … Ed would love to write for Selena.”

Earlier today, Hollywoodlife posted another article reporting that Taylor Swift has now chimed in on the potential duo. Swift was quoted as saying that the pair would make a “perfect” songwriting team. With Taylor giving a direct quote and lending her support, it seems that there may be some truth to this particular rumor.

Do Oceanup readers believe that this collaboration could work?

Great Time or Just Awkward? Justin Bieber, Ed Sheeran and Other Celebs Party Like Rockstars at LA Club

Justin Bieber at The Nice Guy Nightclub

We managed to get some photos from this week’s festivities at West Hollywood hotspot, The Nice Guy Nightclub. Just check out a few of the folks who were hanging out at this soiree.

Justin Bieber was on the scene – in all of his post-Jelena, fedora-wearing swagger – but more on that later. Reports have it that the Bieb was ostensibly at the club celebrating protege Tori Kelly’s new album with manager Scooter Braun, happily engaging in polite banter with photographers and members of the press, even answering a few questions about his role in the upcoming movie, Zealander 2.  When was the last time Justin’s taken the time to do that? Maybe time on the Zoolander 2 set has had a positive impact?

Ed Sheeran appeared alert and mischievous, sporting his patented wry grin and dorm-room sense of style.  Seriously, who doesn’t love Ed’s intelligent lyrics and sensitive vocals? But someone really needs to have a heart-to-heart with the man about what’s the appropriate attire for a party at an upscale nightclub!

Maybe Ed’s trying just a little too hard to seem ironic or rebellious. Unfortunately, the trainers, tee and tats come off more as sloppy and careless than edgy or cool …

Selena Gomez Shares Doubts About Her Voice … As Fans Make Her New Single The Hottest In Nation

Selena Gomez Good For You

This week, Selena Gomez again showed fans her vulnerable side. As reported on Billboard.com, the pop diva recently spoke about searching for her strengths as an artist, but also revealing her insecurity about one of her main tools as a performer – her voice.

“I know that maybe vocally I wouldn’t be the greatest singer in the world,” Selena shared. “But I know my strengths now. I know that I can translate emotion and heart.”

Well, playing to those strengths seems to have paid off BIG TIME for the refreshingly candid popstar. Selena’s just-released single, ‘Good for You (featuring A$AP Rocky),’ officially became the hottest song in the nation, passing BFF Taylor Swift’s smash, ‘Bad Blood,’ on its way to the number one slot on iTunes’ most downloaded songs chart.

Even more impressively, the single went to number one within twenty-four hours of its’ release!

Check out the previously released teaser clip below.
