Britney Inspires Upcoming Selena Gomez Performance At MTV Movie AwardsApril 14, 2013
Selena Gomez is performing her new single, “Come & Get It,” at the MTV Movie Awards, and wants it to be a game changer… Britney Spears style.
|“My favorite MTV performance for any of the awards would be Britney [Spears’] ‘[I’m a] Slave 4 U,’ ” Gomez tells MTV News. “I just loved it. I thought it was super-iconic, and she owned that stage. The routine was impeccable. She looked beautiful. It was kind of when she had her transitioning moment, and that definitely inspired me for this one, for sure.”|
“I’m excited though. I wanted to make the performance something that’d be a game-changer for me, personally, because I wanted to out-do everything else I’ve done as an artist,” she said. “I love dancing. I love the feel of the song and the tribal feel, so I wanted to incorporate that, so I just wanted a fresh take on what, you know, the new chapter is for me. So I’m excited.”
The “tribal feel” of her first single, is a consistent vibe of her new album.
“The whole record kind of has a world feel to it in a way,” she explained. “It’s very European and has a lot of island-y sounds. It’s got a cool vibe to it, so we’re applying it to the performance and even the tour and for future things we want to do and for this kick-off performance.”
The MTV Movie Awards, hosted by “Pitch Perfect” star Rebel Wilson, air live, Sunday at 9 p.m. ET.
