During an interview with Billie Eilish’s brother Finneas, the former Disney darling also confesses to feeling scared that her new album ‘Rare’ could have ‘completely flopped.’
Selena Gomez is impartial when it comes to her style of music in the beginning of her career. Fronting the Spring 2020 issue of Dazed, the “Lose You to Love Me” hitmaker answered a series of questions from her famous colleagues, and shared her thoughts on the one thing that made her cringe when she looked back at her career.
In response to the question thrown by music producer Finneas, the 27-year-old songstress candidly admitted, “My style of music and my style in general. It was just not a great combination.” She added, “I’m proud of all the music I released, of course, but it was just such a different time that sometimes when I hear it, I’m like, ‘Oh no!’ ”
The older brother of Billie Eilish has also quizzed the ex-girlfriend of Justin Bieber, “As a musician who has now been performing professionally for over a decade, what is one thing you look back on in your early career and love?” To which, she simply pointed out, “I would say that (I love) my innocence.”
Elsewhere in the interview, the Alex Russo of “Wizards of Waverly Place” weighed in on the scariest part of releasing an album after four years. “That no one would like it and my career as a singer would be over,” she confessed. “I genuinely thought that. I worked so, so hard on this album.”
“It could have come out and completely flopped, and then it’s like, well, where do you go from here? I would have questioned everything because I doubt myself and that’s where I would have ended up – in a spiral,” Gomez confided. “So I’m glad that it’s doing well. But I did everything I could to make it as personal and real (as possible).”
When Bad Bunny brought up her Latin root and asked if she feels like she represents Latinos, the “Come & Get It” singer responded, “One thousand per cent.” She explained, “I’m always very vocal about my background, as far as me talking about immigration, and my grandparents having to come across the border illegally.”
“I wouldn’t have been born (otherwise). I have such an appreciation for my last name,” she continued on. “I’ve re-released a lot of music in Spanish as well, and that’s something that’s gonna happen a bit more. So there’s a lot more I would love to do because I don’t take it lightly, I’m very honored.”
