Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift are the best of friends and they do so much together, from walking the red carpet and singing on stage together. Their duets are nothing short of epic and now that Sel is embarking on her Revival Tour, everyone is wondering if she's going to be like her girl T. Swift and bring out members of their BFF squad on stage with her. In a new interview, she set the record straight, letting everyone know she's forging her own path that isn't anything like her famous best friend's.
"I made a joke about this [when] Taylor was in the room, and she looked at me like, 'You should totally do that!' I was like, 'I can’t have all those people come on my stage!' She’s like, 'Why not?' 'Because I’m not Taylor Swift,'" Selena explained. "I think I have a different everything about me. I’ve worked for my whole career, and I’ve always wanted it to be about that. I’ve been in so many situations where it’s like, 'Oh, you’re friends with this person? You’re with that person?' All this credibility [stuff] that drives me crazy. I love being able to work with other artists I admire, but I have a lot to do on my own before I am willing to make it all about embracing other people."
So the "Hands to Myself" singer just wants it to be all about her and all the hard work she's done on her own, which is totally commendable. It looks like she's not planning on having anyone join her on stage during this tour, but she did promise something else mega-exciting will come about from her time out on the road: new music.
"Absolutely. I’m in rehearsals during the day and in the studio at night. You hit those points in your life where you’re super inspired. There are waves. Right now I’m running with it," Selena said about the tunes she's been working on, which she hopes will result in a whole new album sometime this year.
"It’s going so well, and I know it’s not even remotely close to being done, but I’m going in all different directions and feeling it out. If it’s great, I’m not going to hesitate to release it," she added.
This whole new era in Selena's musical journey is just the gift that keeps on giving!
