Selena Gomez: I had 'so much to prove' with new album
Selena Gomez had "so much to prove" with her latest album.
The 'Same Old Love' hitmaker says she was incredibly "motivated by the chaos" that was around her - namely her very public relationship with Justin Bieber - and used those feelings as inspiration for her tracks on 'Revival'.
She explained: "This is what I've always loved to do and I had so much to prove, I was in a point in my career where I was very motivated by the chaos that was around me.
"There was a lot of noise - the world had an opinion on my life and it was a little invasive. I wanted to use that as motivation to write this album and to create something that was authentic and was real and genuine and me. Now I am a little bit more open."
Meanwhile, the 23-year-old singer also opened up about some of the raunchier scenes in her latest video 'Hands To Myself', admitting it was all a little "awkward".
Speaking to Ronan Kemp on Capital FM, she explained: "I felt very creepy to be honest though, because I was a little bit of a stalker and then we had that awkward make out scene ...
"I'm not kidding it was pretty awkward and I kept trying to make inappropriate jokes. I don't think he got it, it was really weird."
