Selena wants Taylor Swift on next album.

Get More: Music News

Selena Gomez took a little break from music to expand her film résumé with increasingly riskier projects, including the upcoming "Spring Breakers," but now the former Disney princess is ready to head back into the studio. However, just like in her acting career, her new music will show her more mature side.

"I finished three movies this year, so I'm very happy about that, because it's exactly what I wanted: I wanted to do film for a little bit," she told MTV News over the weekend in New York, where she was promoting her self-titled fragrance at Macy's Herald Square. "But I am missing music, so we're going to start on the fourth record at the end of this year."

While it will be a while before Gomez books some studio time, she said she has already started thinking about how this new album, a follow-up to 2011's When the Sun Goes Down, will sound.

"Very different! I want to go for producers that probably wouldn't want me to do their songs," she said. "I just want to knock on their door. I also want to work with Fun. I want to work with just different styles of music."

Her dream collaborations list doesn't begin and end with the "We Are Young" rockers: She wants to get one of her pals onboard as well. "I also want to work with Taylor [Swift] too. So I just want to do different things for this album," she said. "By the time it comes out, I'll almost be 21, so I want to be able to — wow, that sounds really scary! I want it to be older."

While she doesn't necessarily have a timeframe for the album release, fans might want to mark July 2013: That's when she turns the big 2-1, and her album release might be the splashiest way to celebrate her big day. "I'll be actually able to order a drink, so that will be cool, I guess," she said about the milestone. "I think I'll have a big party with my family and have people come out, because I don't really celebrate birthdays."

like you can learn to act but you can't learn to sing because you need to have the voice, and you can't alter that irl

Why does she keep pretending like she actually took a break from music tho lol
saintselenita 11th-Jun-2012 07:16 pm (UTC)
If she's going to try something new, I'm here for it.
lightsgowild 11th-Jun-2012 07:17 pm (UTC)
I still think if she wants to be taken seriously as an actress then she needs to drop the music stuff.
endlessrush 11th-Jun-2012 07:30 pm (UTC)
she has a contract
endlessrush 11th-Jun-2012 07:22 pm (UTC)
i think a new sound would be fun since this is her last record and all...but guys she is just doing to get out of her contract...not because she thinks she is a great musician!! Well, thats how i take it.

This is probably her last cd unless she wants to continue music on a new label. Cause HWR is her last linkage to disney.

Wouldn't surprise me if she renewed her contract

what if taylor like co-wrote with selena? i mean, she co-wrote a song for bieber's album.. idt it's that big of a deal but i can see why people would be mad w/ taylor being involved, esp if you dnw selena's singing career.
pseudovirus 11th-Jun-2012 08:17 pm (UTC)
idt she's talking about taylor like..being a feature on her album, but co-writing with her. nothing wrong with that IMO
teenagedreamxxx 11th-Jun-2012 08:25 pm (UTC)
this why i love you lol. so unbias, no matter who you stan.
teenagedreamxxx 11th-Jun-2012 08:28 pm (UTC)
she should do really mellow songs. songs like I Won't Apologize, WOTN, LYLALS etc. those are her best songs IMO, and whether people wanna admit it or not her music does sell and people actually like her voice so.....

i'd really enjoy if, especially if this is her last album, if she did a lot more writing on it. she started out her singing career intending to write more, and so far only "i won't apologize" has her name on the writing credits (correct me if i'm wrong but idts?). i'm sure she has a lot to say, and she works with and has worked with plenty of people who can do great co-writes. it'd be nice for her to go out with an album that is like, really ~her~, instead of just fun pop. i really enjoy her fun pop records, but i've always wanted to see what the songs she writes are like. she's talked about writing on and off for years, but we just haven't seen anything but IWA. i think she could easily have some catchy songs with co-writers, idk. and it'd be like a good challenge for her last album. but HWR in general doesn't seem to like its artists to write for their records, so who knows. her 4th album will probably be great pop either way lol if i was a singer in YH i would hate selena for her access to producers alone lol

That would be pretty cool if Taylor did something with Selena.
warrior1461 Demz is gonna get pissed11th-Jun-2012 09:13 pm (UTC)
...because Taylor is movin' in on her woman. She already wrote a song she wants to sing with Selena called, "I want to kiss your kitty"
