Selena Gomez inspired by Taylor Swift

Selena Gomez took musical inspiration from Taylor Swift.

The 'Heart Wants What It Wants' hitmaker is reportedly keen on writing more tracks about her "heartbreaks" and looked to her close pal for advice.

A source said: "Selena's written a lot more songs based on her personal experiences and heartbreaks.

"It was Taylor that she drew inspiration from in that sense, who told her that's something she should really focus on because it's what people, especially young female fans, can relate to."

The 22-year-old singer is also said to be penning tracks for her new album about her tough split from Justin Bieber as well as drawing on inspiration from her friends' break-ups too.

The insider added to "Selena has written about elements of her relationship with Justin on the new album.

"She's also taken inspiration from stories of her girlfriends' break-ups and heartbreaks, as she aims to make her music more real than it's ever been."

The star's vocal coach Stevie Mackey also recently confirmed Selena had been writing about her split from the 'Baby' hitmaker.

He said: "She doesn't mention him directly. But one could deduce that she is [singing about him]. Most artists sing about their present or past relationships in their music. Selena's no different."
