Besides posting this enviable look, Gomez has had a milestone March 2021. Earlier this month, she released her first Spanish-language EP, Revelación, for which she said her biggest influence was her namesake, Selena Quintanilla-Pérez. In a March 12 interview, she told Rolling Stone's Brittany Spanos that she's at a point in her life where she makes creative decisions based on what she wants to do with her music.[instagram align='center' id='CMVlekRDUEw']https://www.instagram.com/p/CMVlekRDUEw[/instagram]
"I just am following where my heart leads me, and making decisions based on what I've seen and learned," she said. "I guess it'll keep going until it doesn't." Gomez, who's been re-learning Spanish, said singing in the language has only helped her confidence.
"I was fluent until I was 7," she said, adding, in part: "I feel like I'm not as judged. Maybe it stems from years of people saying I'm not a real artist. Exploring this side of me has been nothing short of amazing. It really allowed me to take my voice to a different place. I just felt very confident when I would sing. I hope people hear that hard work and enjoy it." She continued: "I know I'm not the best singer, but I do carry stories. I'm emotionally connected to my music. It means just as much to me as it does for the world's best singer."[editoriallinks id='ae757070-1066-42ec-9bc1-10b42aa84733' align='center'][/editoriallinks]
