Selena Gomez is blasting into theaters today with her new movie Hotel Transylvania 2 and JJJ had the chance to talk with her about the film and her upcoming music!
The 23-year-old entertainer talked to us about her character Mavis, what she likes most about her, and also which one of her songs Mavis would like best. Check it:
On what she likes about her Mavis: “Her confidence. That’s something I think every girl deals with and I’ve been working on that and it’s been the best translating that into my work lately. Because ultimately, that’s the biggest thing. Self esteem is extremely important and that’s something that I really, really work on.”
On which of her songs would be Mavis’ favorite: “I think Mavis would like ‘Me and the Rhythm’ or ‘Rise.’ I think they’re both really fun songs about being free and in the moment and not really taking no for an answer, not bowing down.”
On the theme of her hotel if she owned one: “My theme would be romance. I think I’m such a sucker for that and I would love it to be very romantic. And you could throw monsters into there if you want.”
Selena Gomez makes sure to get a pic with her fans after her appearance at Radio 1 studios in London on Friday morning (September 25).
The 23-year-old “Good For You” singer, who also stopped by Vevo, changed up her outfit several times before heading to the train station to get to Paris, France to continue promoting her upcoming album, Revival.
“It’s all part of my story,” Selena shared with NYT about the record and moving on from her Disney days. “I’m growing and changing. I was in a relationship, and I was being managed by my parents, and I was still under Hollywood and Disney, and I was being held to this expectation of being the good girl.”
She added: “I knew deep down that this wasn’t what I wanted to do — being exhausted of forcing something that wasn’t right, even in my personal life. I had to have moments where I was crying and I was like, ‘Why am I not in love with what I do?’ I was forced to get very uncomfortable for a while in order to make the decisions I made.”
FYI: Selena is wearing an Atea Oceanie slip dress while leaving the Vevo offices.

The 23-year-old singer/actress, who later changed into a black dress, recently opened up about her love for working out.
“I started doing Pilates. I love the active movement in Pilates. If I don’t work out, I feel heavy,” Selena told Yahoo. “Everything about me just feels a little bit down. And sometimes I will just run on the treadmill and get emotional because it sort of relieves everything that you’re feeling. Also, little things: I love cooking. That makes me feel very calm, and it makes me feel like a normal person.”

Selena Gomez arrives at the ITV Studios with a cute smile on her face in London, England on Wednesday afternoon (September 23).
The 23-year-old actress/singer has been making her rounds at BBC and KISS FM, promoting her new album, and new movie, Hotel Transylvania 2.
“I just had so much to say on this record. We would go into the studio with people and producers and I would just start saying a bunch of things I was feeling,” Selena shared in a recent interview.
She continued, “And then I hit this roadblock in the middle of the album, I was feeling so uninspired and didn’t feel like I had a direction. So I went to Mexico and took Hit-Boy, Rock Mafia and three writers, and I rented a house and had everybody come with me and I got to explore the city. I used some sounds that I got in Mexico and I was so inspired I did four songs and it came together so perfectly.”
FYI: Selena is wearing a Preen dress with Brian Atwood shoes at KISS FM. She is wearing a J Brand jacket, top, and jeans with the hat.
Selena Gomez sings her heart out for the crowd in the just released video for her song “Same Old Love.”
