Zedd Gushes About Selena Gomez At Surprise Alcatraz Party — She’s ‘Incredible’

Zedd confirmed that things are going well between the couple during a surprise performance at Alcatraz — San Francisco’s prison Island-turned National Park — when he gushed over his ladylove in an interview.

“[Selena is] incredible at taking directions, because I actually was in the studio with her,” he explained to People. “Singers don’t always take direction well because sometimes they feel like you get in their zone and I don’t have to be there. She was great, you know — trying to emulate exactly what I wanted to hear and didn’t take anything personally. When I would say, ‘Try this instead of that’ or ‘Give me more vibrato on this one, and a straight note of this one,’ she was exactly precise like I asked her to be.”

Perhaps Selena was just so smitten with the sexy music producer that she could do nothing but agree with him! Ah, how cute are these two!?
