Selena Gomez talks video inspiration

Selena Gomez wants her new video to portray the idea of "being obsessed with love".

The 23-year-old singer strips to a bra and knickers as she writhes around in a bath with the gorgeous Christopher Mason in the video for 'Hands to Myself'.

The video is much sexier than Selena is used to treating her fans to, and the stunning brunette says she had a very strong message she wanted to get across through the footage.

She said: "I wanted the idea of this video to be two different versions of being in this fantasy. I think everyone can have those moments where they're dreaming of what their life could be, especially girls with love.

"Being obsessed with the idea, and you can't control yourself. That's what you want no matter what's happening."

The video shows Selena playing a woman who is obsessed with an actor, played by Mason - and the images of her cavorting with the hunk are just figments of her imagination.

She added to E! News: "You get to see these images of what people think love is. It's theatrical, it's movie-like. And all of that you end up seeing ends up being a false reality on both ends. That's what I wanted it to feel like.

"Ultimately you realise that one of the versions of myself is a little psychotic."

The song is taken from Selena's new album 'Revival', and she is thrilled with the way it has turned out.

She said of its sound: "It's got this funk to it that really created this whole sound that I feel like could knock me into the future of my music, to be honest. So it's exciting to see it come to life."
