With both a new album and movie just released in the past month, Selena Gomez has been busy with her career. The star has been promoting her third studio album When the Sun Goes Down, as well as her movie Monte Carlo. In a recent interview with Deccan Chronicle, she chatted about her new music, as well as future plans including a spanish album!
On her album: There is a song called My Dilemma that is one of my favourites. It’s pop rock song, very similar to the stuff on my first record actually. It’s about loving someone — but you’re not really sure that person is the right one for you and you still can’t help but be attracted to that person. Then there is this song called Hit The Lights that I love, which is basically saying you can’t sit there and say, “I should have done this” or “I could have done that and if only I had, my life would have turned out differently”. It’s all about living in the moment and I love the fact that this song has a really powerful message.
On her band & creating music: My band is amazing and I love them. As for my songwriting process, it is very organic. I can’t really force anything and put it in my schedule to go into a studio and sit down and write songs from scratch. It happens at the most random times. I’ll write a lyric on the airplane… I tend to think a lot when I’m in the shower or shopping. I just pen down the lyrics and I put it all together with producers. So my song writing process is very easy and simple.
On Acting & Singing: When you perform with a band it’s different and when you perform solo its different. I feel both provide a sense of fulfillment in some way or the other. I want to do more films as I haven’t done a lot of films so far. However, I also want to grow more, musically. Right now, it’s hard to choose which I enjoy most, but I think when I get older and I want all this activity to slow down, I’ll probably seek out more acting opportunities.
What’s next for Selena: I’m very excited about my tour. And I’m working on a Spanish record.
