What Selena Gomez Said About Her New Album Release is a MAJOR Bummer
Fans have been waiting for a new Selena Gomez album for a long time now, but it looks like they’re going to have to continue being patient. The 25-year-old hasn’t released an LP since 2015’s Revival and to say Selenators are desperate for new music would be an understatement. But even though the “Wolves” singer has been working on it for two and a half year, she told PopSugar she’s waiting for the perfect time to release it, but isn’t quite sure when that’ll be.
“I don’t know when the right moment is,” she said. “And I really mean that, not in a way that I’m trying to be mysterious or cool.”
We know her answer is super frustrating, but her reasoning behind it actually makes a lot of sense.
“It’s hard to have a voice and make sure that your content means something,” she continued.
So basically, SelGo doesn’t want to just put anything out there — she wants her music to have meaning. She’s been working on the album for quite some time now, and even posted a picture of herself in the studio at the end of last year with the caption, “Currently. Until the next year. Here’s where I’ll be.”
But that wasn’t the first time Selly headed to the studio to work on the new album. Shortly after she was named Billboard‘s 2017 Woman of the Year, she admitted that she actually has a TON of music ready and that it’ll be released soon.
“To be honest, I feel like I have two albums already completed, but I’m wanting to figure it out,” she said. “So it’s a lot sooner than I think people anticipate. I want to call the shots, I want it to be good, I want to be ready, I don’t want to do anything that’s forced. It will be soon.”
Maybe Selena’s definition of ‘soon’ is different than ours?
