Selena talks about the sound of her upcoming album in a new interview with MTV — see how Taylor Swift and Skrillex are inspiring her! Watch her video interview below!
Before Selena Gomez, 20, took the stage at her UNICEF charity concert on Jan. 19, she spoke to MTV about her new music. At the concert, she covered BFF Taylor Swift‘s “I Knew You Were Trouble,” poking fun at ex boyfriend Justin Bieber, but now we know what we can expect from Sel’s upcoming music!
Selena Gomez Is Inspired By Taylor Swift … & Skrillex
“Taylor inspires me, not even in music, just in everything that she does. She’s such an incredible person,” Selena told the interviewer.
“Skrillex was a big inspiration because he did the score of Spring Breakers, so being a part of that and meeting him and watching Spring Breakers a thousand times through festivals and stuff, you kinda get hooked on it. So I was like, ‘I should kind of add a little bit of that in there.'”
Selena did admit that although she was inspired by the electronic, dance style of Skrillex, he didn’t actually collaborate with Selena on her music. “No, he was doing his own thing,” Sel admitted.

“We both experienced the same things at the same time,” Selena told NYLON magazine about her relationship with Taylor. “But we’ve never once talked about our industry. She just became the person I’d go to for an issue with my family or boyfriend. It’s so hard to trust girls, so I’m lucky to have her.”
