Selena Gomez Is Working on New Music: ‘I’m Ready to Have Some Fun’
Ask a busy person if you need something done. Selena Gomez is that person.
Pop artist and actor, she has managed to squeeze it all in. She stars in Only Murders in the Building alongside Steve Martin and Martin Short; helms the cooking show Selena Chef; and takes the lead on the documentary My Mind & Me, a personal story on mental health, seven years in the making.
The Apple TV series My Mind & Me spawned a single of the same name, and an official music video.
Gomez says there’s more music in the pipeline. He’s eager to get back to a party atmosphere.
On Monday night (Dec. 5), Gomez stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon for a chat about her hectic schedule.
Is the new single a sign that there is more music in the works? Fallon is told by her, “That’s true.” “Finally.”
Gomez’s last studio album was 2020’s Rare, which, like its two predecessors, peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Fallon is informed that she is used to writing sad-girl songs. Fallon also notes that recording sessions are being held in New York City. “But I’m ready for some fun and I believe people will like it .”
Don’t expect 2023 to be a cruise. Filming for season 3 of Only Murders will kick off in January, Gomez admits during her stint on the late-night couch.
Are the two Martins rubbing off? She’s a bit snarky, a bit grumpy, but otherwise, she’s not that bad. Gomez also recalls the “oh my God” moment Meryl Streep stopped by to say “hi!” and kiss her hand (“it seemed so surreal”).
The artist spoke out about her advocacy and charity work, as well as the purpose it gives to her. “I know that I will not stop fighting until the day I’m dead. Mental health is an important topic and should be emphasized .”
Gomez stayed to play “Egg Roulette” alongside Fallon. This game sees the host and guest smash eggs on their heads, without knowing which ones are hard-boiled or raw.
If she was having flashbacks, the blame could be attributed to playing “Hot Ones” with Fallon in 2019, an eating game, she recounts, that ended with her barfing in her dressing room.
