Selena wants Taylor Swift on next album.

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."

idts, your voice will sound the same tbh, her singing hasn't improved whats-so-ever.
On the other hand, she should stick to acting because I brought Ramona and Beezus & Another Cinderella Story with me to college because they're fun, bad movies to watch so it's all good.

listen i am not saying she should stick to singing lol but she doesnt have a horrible voice its medicore. She has a sweet, little voice. She is no Grammy winner.

i think is she really, really tried she could get a lot better. i'm not saying she prbly hasn't had a million singing couches but if she put all her effort into it and wanted to sing she could be a million times better.

ngl I'm not listening to that. Her voice is so baby-ish and nauseating so I'll just skip it.
This topic is debatable, so I won't really get into it.

You are both right. Some people have voices that will never be album worthy. Some people have the voice of angels from the day they are born. Lots of people have ok voices that can be turned into very good voices with practice. Even the greatest opera singers have vocal coaches, and they were *born* with great potential.

Selena's in the middle somewhere. No one is going to mistake her for Aretha Franklin, but she sings a hell of a lot better than me. Well enough to pull it off for her audience, and she'll likely get better over time.

What she really has going for her is charm, grace, adorableness, common sense, and a wisdom past her years. Plus really great looks.

this is what i am saying. I am in no way wishing for selena to have a music career beyond this last album and I really don't like 98% of her music but it isn't like she had a down right horrid singing voice lol.

sucks that having a non-horrid singing voice is enough these days to be called a musician! lol smh

I disagree can make good music overall and not have the best voice in the world. But i get what you mean because more than half the singers out now make horrible music.

Little late to the party, but...
