With the debut of the music video for ‘Come & Get It,’ it’s obvious that Selena’s made the transition from squeaky clean teen to sexy vixen! And we have Britney Spears to thank for that, according to a new interview. Keep reading for all the details!
Selena Gomez admits that Britney Spears is the inspiration behind her upcoming Stars Dance World Tour and last month’s MTV Movie Awards performance, claiming Britney’s “I’m a Slave 4 U” performance in 2001 was Sel’s favorite of any awards show!
Britney Spears Inspired Selena Gomez To Be Sexy — From Teen Star To Diva
Following Selena’s MTV Movie Awards performance on April 14, Britney tweeted, “Wow @SelenaGomez.. ‘Come & Get It’ on the #mtvmovieawards was incredible! One of my favorite songs out there right now! And thank you for all of the kind words about the VMA Slave performance ..you’re too sweet! Means a lot to me.”
Of the shout out on Twitter, Selena told MTV, “It was actually the second time that she tweeted me.. I died the first time. I didn’t believe it at first, but it was really sweet, because even with the inspirations through the outfits and the performances, she’s a huge inspiration when it comes to performing.”
Selena Gomez: Britney Spears Is So Hot
From one Disney star to another, it only seems appropriate that Selena would want to mirror her career after Britney, who’s successfully transitioned from teen star to the Queen of Pop.
“I think she’s one of the best that made that transition. That video [‘Slave 4 U’] is so hot, it’s incredible, so I love that, and I definitely wanted to do that with my transition, but I don’t think there’s a path you have to follow. I think you just have to figure it out and hope for the best, so if it has a similarity, that’s only a compliment,” Selena added.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Can Selena be the next Britney Spears? Does she have what it takes?
