Following the release of her new single Good For You featuring A$AP Rocky yesterday, singer/actress Selena Gomez opened up on her new sound, and what fans can expect from her next album.
“I’m not the best singer in the world, but I know how to translate emotion and I have a lower register that I hated when I was younger and now I kind of know how to use that,” Selena says in her interview with Ryan Seacrest. “I’m just finding my strengths now as an artist. I’m becoming a young woman and I’m comfortable with my sensuality. It’s just kind of not try-hard. It’s just perfect. I think to me that was exactly what I want people to see for the next chapter for me.”
“There’s so much I want to say about it, but what I will say is, I’ve really taken my time with this record,” says Selena. “I have people behind me that support my vision completely, and now I’m kind of on my own in a way and this is the first time that I’ve ever grabbed ahold of something.”
“I’m not going to let anybody else try to alter my vision or tell me I need to do something,” she continues. “I’m very confident in this record and you can hear it. But I’m vulnerable, I’m real, and I think it just shows a different side of me, and I’m really excited, and I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders.”
When asked if her new music will address her ex Justin Bieber, Selena says: “I think there’s hints of it, but I think what I was really excited about was the title of the album [and] the rebirth of Selena,” she says. “It’s just beautiful. It’s my chance to just feel like an independent artist and I worked really hard on it. So I guess that’s just the vision. It’s all about my journey. It’s not about anything specific.”
