Talk about twinsies! Selena Gomez just paid tribute to her ‘idol,’ Jennifer Aniston, on Twitter, by posting a side-by-side comparison of her ‘Revival’ album cover and an almost identical photo of the ‘Friends’ actress from the 90s.
Selena Gomez, 23, has always been a huge admirer of Jennifer Aniston, 46. So much so, that she may have just dedicated her Revival album cover to the Friends actress! The “Good For You” singer took to Twitter on Sept. 10 to compare the fully unclothed photo of herself to an eerily similar one of Jen. Does this mean the two are now officially BFFs?!
Taking her fandom to new heights, Selena shared the side-by-side pic on Twitter, captioning the photo with a flurry of heart-eye emojis and the hashtag #myidol. While the singer has yet to clarify, it appears as though Jen may have been the inspiration behind Selena’s album cover — it’s hard not to notice the similarities between the two. For one, they’re both completely naked. They both also appear to be sitting in the same sort of scrunched (and kind of uncomfortable-looking position), while staring deeply into the camera. In other words, they’re totally twinning!
The “Good for You” songstress has gushed about the Cake actress on social media before, but it was only recently that she gave fans a look into their close friendship during a radio interview with KTU’s Cubby and Carolina.“She’s amazing,” Selena told KTU’s Carolina Bermudez about her friendship with her idol. “We met through my management — they manage her as well — so it was kind of like a friendly meeting and instantly she’s, like, inviting me to her house. She has a pizza oven. Like, we’ve made pizzas at her house. She’s very cool and very sweet. She kind of gives me a lot of, like, maternal advice.” Consider us jealous!
Whether or not Jen was the inspiration behind Selena’s album cover, Sel revealed that she ultimately decided to pose nude as a way to get back at those who’ve dissed her new figure. “This is my time,” she told Power 106’s The Cruz Show on September 11. “I’m not gonna give a f**k what people say. I’m not going to let them get to me. I’m going to do what I want.” Her new album is all about regeneration and finding out more about herself; it’s only fitting that it includes a bare and raw representation of herself on the cover. We think Jen would be proud!
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — do you think Selena is channeling Jen with her album cover?
