Selena Gomez called in to Sacramento radio station NOW 100.5 and revealed the impact Prince had on her music. “Prince had a little bit of influence on my songs when we were in the studio,” she said about the late singer. “Just the texture of how unique his voice is, I wanted to have a little bit of that in ‘Hands To Myself.'”
The singer even discussed her name and how it tied her to another late singer, Selena Quintanilla. “My name was going to be Priscilla,” Selena admitted. “So they actually loved her music and they just named me after her. It’s so surreal, I grew up and I went to her grave, I got to go to her house,” she added.
