Selena Gomez says people don't know her “heart”, gets candid about new album
Popstar Selena Gomez wants the whole world to know there is much more to her than just her looks. The 26-year-old 'Come and Get It' singer was the first star who sat down with Coach for their new podcast series called 'Dream It Real.' She said in the interview: "I don’t really appreciate people judging me on my looks or anything like that. I just think that the world today, with so much exposure to everything, it’s great to dress up and to feel beautiful and to do those things."
Gomez got candid in the interview and revealed she doesn't want men to just love her for her looks. She said: "I’m flattered when maybe guys are like, ‘You’re pretty.’ I am, but it’s just—I would just love someone to love me for the person that I am. That’s just what’s important to me, you know?"
The recent talk marked the first interview of the year for Gomez and it was very insightful. The star went on to explain that the rest of the world only sees her public persona but doesn't really know her "heart". She said: "I always say this and maybe I repeated it too much, but I don’t really think people know my heart because I think that sometimes people may think that I politically say the right thing or I’m safe or I’ve been trained to speak this way. I don’t know how to be trained, like how on earth would someone be training me to speak things?"
Gomez addressed a question all her fans have been desperately asking: What's going on with her new album? Fortunately for fans out there, she spilled new details on the upcoming record. The singer said: "There will be no collaborations on it."
She continued: "Working on this new record, I just wanted it to be me, all me. Every song is a story I’ve experienced. To that point, I think there’s no one who’s going to tell my story better than myself. I just really wanted to kind of just live with my story a bit and create it into something that means a lot to me." Her next album is expected to drop later this year.
The star also had words of encouragement for her fans which surely brought a tear or two to some eyes. She said: "You’re enough. You’re absolutely enough. And if you deal with things that are really difficult like family issues, or anxiety, depression or substance issues, I just think that you’re never too far gone. I really believe that."
Coach's podcast will also be featuring Michael B. Jordan, 'Game of Thrones' star Maisie Williams, actor and songwriter Ben Platt, and Coach Creative Director Stuart Vevers. The show will be premiering weekly on Spotify.
